Shawnee park is right off of Parker..In between Jupiter and 75...Caught some healthy bass there last Saturday biggest going around 3 lbs...Kinda small,but a fun stop every now and then.

There are a bunch of good ponds to fish in Plano. Bob Woodruff, Oakpointe Park, and Crowley Park just south of Plano in Richardson. Also Bethany Park in Allen.

Click on the link in my signature line for location of each.



There's a fine line between fishing and sitting on the water looking like a darn fool.

The Oak Point pond has crappie, bass, channels in it. I fish it quite a bit. Even when I don't catch a thing, it's close and quiet back in there.
There is also a pond just north of Plano in Allen just past Bethany. Take Alma to Bel Air and take a left. Follow Bel Air for a while and you will see it on your left.

I have yet to find the LMB bite on OakPoint, which is sad because it really is a nice little lake.

I have never fished BW, but seems like it gets a lot of pressure...

BUT, the former owners of the property did when it was a farm pond.

I've caught them from palm size(literally) it fit in the palm of my hand to about 4.5 pounds. Not too many but have caught a few. The big one was at night. I just wanted to get out of the house for a little while and had my lighted bobber out with a worm on it. I was getting a bullhead off of a hook when I noticed movement out of the corner of my eye, when I looked all I could see was the glow of the bobber underwater. Fun catch...
I've seen some jumpring that looked even bigger too.

I had one good evening there. Was trying for LMB with a big spinner and caught a 13" crappie, caught another crappie, so decided to switch to bobber and tube to get more crappie, caught a LMB. I have seen some over 5lbs caught, but not by me yet.

I just caught a 3+ lb LMB out at OakPoint last night. I used a 1/4 oz rooster tail and worked the banks. I also caught 8 LMB less than 1 lb and a [censored] load of small but aggresive crappie. I even caught a nice bluegill on this setup. All were caught within 10 feet of bank.

The park is open 24/7, there are no signs that state otherwise so I assume yes you can.


The pursuit (where are the fish), rigs design and setup, scouting, the awesome feeling of casting your rigs 100+ yards out, the total focus on the fish and the elements, the outdoors... the total exhaustion at the end of your fishing day,... the cooler full of fish to bring home... Yeah, I'm going to miss bank fishing!

Thanks Ren!

What is feeding the lake?
Rowlett Creek?

Good question! RC does not feeds into this lake (large pond), the pond has ~2-3' dam, and dump water into RC. Unless there is a spring water in the middle of this pond, I say it's a natural water pool of the surrounding hills watershed.

Talking about those hills, the preserve is teems with wild life, the wooded area along the creek below (sought of) the pond has good natural hiking trails, great for kids and adults alike. We always spotted some wildlife in there, tracks every where,but be careful with the creek banks, they are deep and steep...

Also, if you go, I highly recommend you take your kids strolling across the natural prairie to the east of the pond, it is full of little "highways", tunnels in the thick grass criss cross the grassy field. Birds, lots of birds in this preserve. thumb

We don't fish there but we always see people fishing, and there is fishing pier on the pond, and you can see little fish swimming all around the bank... and ripples all over the pond surface, so I know it's a good fishing pond....

My hat is off to the City of Plano, they are doing a good job on this nature preserve and other parks, such as the ARBOR HILLS NATURE PRESERVE on far west side of Plano, that park also has a creek with little fish swimming all over the place, and yes birds and wildlife,... they are awesome/best parks within a city limits. thumb

Take I-75 to Plano, exit E. Spring Creek Pkwy, head east, turn left on Jupiter road, then right on Los Rios blvd, park entrance is on your right.

Why would even consider a pnd when youu have the whole Spring Creek / creek with Chisolm Trail running along side it . I caught my new PB there a couple of weeks ago and have been cathing big ones there after work consitently . my new PB is about 18 inches and I'm sure weighted over 5 lbs . Pictures aare lousey wish I'd had somone to help but trying to get it still by the tape measure and take pics without hurting it proved to much for me . but sincerly Thre are some giants on the bright sunny days concentrate on the slittest shadow or deep water . I looked over the edge and under a bush and there weree 3 the smallest easily 16 inches .. All I did was drop a zoom lizard didnt even have to cast . Also some reall really huge carp and some really nice bluegill. try to start at corner of spring creek and custard and work your way down . under the first bridge in the real shallow by the first colum theres a big female being garded by two males but I couldnt get them to take a lure at all .

Yep , they've all been fished out by....pffft EVERYONE! I used to fish all the areas mentioned and I've seen people using throw nets to take fish , and people taking fish out to keep them on rod and reel. Its sad that all these areas fished good until people found out about them. Rule #1 is dont share your spots on the forum , plenty of people have found out the hard way me included.

Try the catch and release pond at Plano East High School or you could try Stoney Hollow its off of Coldwater Creek. Also got Shawnee Park, Big Lake, and The Davis Library pond. I would say check out Bob Woodruff but I never have luck out there at all. Oak Point can be tough as well. Another pond I haven't had much luck at is Russell Creek, thats about all the places I know off hand that are open to the public with no worries of tresspassing or anything.

Your right a lot of the ponds in plano used to be much better. Fishing has gone way down at a lot of places.

White Rock Trail Park in Plano also have some good size sunfish and crappie. I go there for a quick fishing while waiting for my wife shopping at Nordstrom Rack -Preston Shepard Place.

There's a good pond by Allen event center. There's actually 2 but I've only fished the one closest to Allen event center. There's some decent fish in there went there with some friends we all caught fish the biggest I caught was 3lbs nothing under 1lb.

It's good to know that there are some good sized fish in those ponds by the Allen Events center. I've tried those before, and I've caught nothing bigger than 7 or 8 inches. But I always assumed there wasn't anything decent in there and didn't spend too much time looking for good spots. I just go there with my 4-year old since it's an easy spot to fish.

Fished today at Oakpoint Nature Preserve, me and my friend got some small striped bass. Hope they get bigger come springtime.

Oak point Pond fishing was always fun. A good place to take your kids fishing or your dog for a walk. Due to recent reports of venomous snakes, park authorities restricted all activities after sunset. I didn't believe it until I saw three snakes crossing the concrete walkway to the heavy grassy area of the pond bank. Cops have their routine patrolling after dark.
Now I go to Russell Creek or white Rock trail park. No more oak point, not worth risking my life. Russell Creek can produce some 5 lb lmb every once in a while.

Bright is right about the snakes in Oakpoint. The catfish I caught got bit while on a stringer.
Thinking of waiting till the snake swallow the fish, but felt pity on the fish.
Snake was shooked off using a fishing rod, and fishes were released after.

hopefully they are diamondback water snakes which are non-venomous. But I'm not really sure.
Lets just take extra care out there.

Is there a place to park you vehicle near the lake at Bob Woodruff? I drove by it and saw the lake from Park. Drove around the park, but could not find where you could turn in and park. The nature center had a locked gate.

If I ever do go back to Oak Point, I'll be sure to wear tall rubber boots, but since I have no luck (might be my skill level) I don't have plans to hit it any time soon.

OMG

I think a snake latched onto my stringer would have sent me home for the day. Good to know though. I've been out there quite a few times and never thought about snakes one way or the other. Breckenridge in Richardson has quite a few snakes too. I saw two the last time I was out there. Both were just watersnakes, from what I could tell, but still.


The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope. --John Buchan

Yes, as Mr. KikoPH stated, San G., which is on the side by Dooley Elementary school. You have to drive up a block or so to Stave Oak Lane off Park Blvd, then go into the neighborhood and over to the school.

Hey guys, new to the forum and looking for some help. Ok so I have taken my 7yr son to oak point twice and all I got was one bite but still had fun. Was hoping y'all can share what type of bait to use, as I am rather new to fishing myself. Tried top water and nightcrawlers but nothing
Thanks

Oak Point has skunked me twice in the past 2 years.

I haven't figured it out yet, but I'm starting to get the urge again to show up and "Viking" my way into pummeling that pond.

I'll try weighted worms, spinners and a couple cranks...the usual.

Heck, I'm might even hook some Halloween candy corns if nothing else works. Oak Point won't always beat me.

Addendum: The Zip-line obstacle course is very challenging and quite fun!

Never liked Bob Woodruff water was always chocolate milk and was never good to me. Oak Point is very hit or miss. And its sucks cause that pond looks really good and I know it has some decent bass cause I have caught some in the past but it always seemed like I had to fish the whole pond for like 3 bass. I always used yum dingers or senkos in watermelon and red flake rigged weightless T-rig. I have caught on other stuff out there but that was the best bait for me. I really depise that place but still have gone back to be disappointed again lol. I wish Plano would let me put my kayak in there I would find them then! Lots of ponds in Plano if you look around. Use Google earth and even TPWD has public ponds listed on their site online. Here is a link to the community fishing ponds list just scroll down to Collin and Dallas counties and you should be able to locate some places to fish in Plano and other areas.
