Can anyone fill me in on what lakes still have a fair amount of hydrilla? I live in DFW so I’d assume most if not all are in East TX…and I’m aware of the obvious ones like Rayburn, Toledo, etc. but I was hoping to get filled in on others if it’s not too much to ask. Thanks guys!

Here are some of the lesser-known ones that I am aware of with fishable hydrilla.
Bridgeport, Martin Creek, PK (SOMEWHERE, or so we are told), Brownwood, Ray Hubbard, Athens

Obvious Ones:
Welsh
Davy Crockett
Monticello (good luck getting to it)

Possible hit-or-miss:
Ray Hubbard (yeah, on two lists - it's all about LOCATION)
Fork
Bob Sandlin


AND SO ON...

Fairfield probably has more fishable hydrilla than any lake in Texas right now. It's chock full of it. Some out as deep as 12-14ft. Some really good frog fishing in the pads to. It's fishing really good right now, both numbers and quality. Normally I wouldn't promote it, but it will be gone soon. Better enjoy it while you can. Sounds like it's gone come first of the year.

We paid for Fairfield’s hydrilla. I understand it’s illegal to transport it from one lake to another, so I would never recommend or suggest that.

Stillhouse is absolutely full of it. In most places it is out to about 25 feet deep. The lake is extremely low right now so be cautious running the western half of it.

Thats good to hear.
I have talked to a couple who are normally good at finding grass who said "it's gone"
When I was there this spring, I only found two areas that had any.

“Some”. A year ago you didn’t have to “find it” you just had to open your eyes and it was everywhere. Sad……..

TPWD can stock all the SAL Jr's they want too but they will never optimize our lakes potential without hydrilla. Until TPWD makes it a point to keep hydrilla in lakes it will keep getting sprayed by other entities.
