I fished Fairfield today. When I was leaving, a TPWD truck pulled up. The two guys in the truck had TPWD clothing but were not rangers. I asked them if the rumor was true that their had been some kind of 2 year lease signed to keep the park open. One guy did all of the talking; he said yes. I then asked them if TPWD was going to do any stocking. The same guy said they were not going to stock any more redfish.(?) I then said that redfish hasn't been stocked in years because the power plant had closed down. In looking at the TPWD website, Fairfield hasn't had any redfish or bass stocking since 2011. The TPWD guy then said he wishes they would stock crappie. (?) Once again, looking at the TPWD website, they haven't stocked any crappie of any kind since 1995.

Hang in there Lake Fairfield!


Be safe,

Rayzor...So, how did you do ? I would think the bass should be starting to turn on in these ex power plant lakes as the water temp drops...

Shhhhhh. Started off with a very energetic 2-pounder but I didn't have much luck after that. Fishing with my usual crankbait was hard with cloud cover. I couldn't see where the grass was. I think a small portion of the hydrilla has fallen back, though. It looked like the water level was the same as it was the last time I was there.

Sun came out for around noon (?) but didn't last long. The wind really picked up in the afternoon. Wound up with 3 more fish, no more than a pound each.


Be safe,
