Has anybody been to Lake Athens recently? and if so how’s it looking over there? is it crowded like Lake Fork?

Athens gets throttled when people can chunk any plastic at the bank and get a few bites.

It should be getting that way soon

Was out there a few Fridays ago and there were trailers up in the top lot. Quite a few for a Friday. Had some really good days there in the dead of winter. Struggled with the warmer water temps.

Have been a couple of times the last couple weeks. Has sucked. Lots of boats. The lake will never be how it used to be. Too small of a lake with all that pressure and lost all of the grass is gone. Heard they sprayed out there. I wouldn’t waste your time. There are other lakes around that would be much better. If you don’t mind a boat show you could go. Still might have a chance at a good one but fishing there overall has gone downhill.

We fish Athens most weekends, always crowded unless dead of winter…. Fishing is still really good if you can unlock the lake
