Has anybody ever fished at Mose Johnson Lake in the great city of Bowie?
It looks fisherman friendly, take a yak out and can hit up the whole lake in about an hour or so.

You don't always need a boat..
But gosh darn it, sure helps!

Yes, it was excellent for fishing, unfortunately a senior in the high school drowned there last year and they have since put a fence up and closed access. Very good largemouth and crappie. Pictures attached from last year just prior to it closing. [Linked Image]

generally when someone wants to keep folks out of a property they put up a fence but most folks this day an time think its ok to sneek in to others property without invitation an then complain when the owners run them out.

No the old city lake can still be fished by general public and is much larger than this one. Mose Johnson is the small lake beside the high school that was once part of the Mose Johnson chicken ranch property. It is still fenced and gated on the school side and along north and south side and east side is heavily wooded and I assume fenced as well.

I know of Mose Johnson and Amon Carter. Never heard of “city lake” in Bowie.

The old city lake they refer to is Bowie lake north of Bowie, near Stoneburg. City water for Bowie used to come from there until it dried up in 50's and Amon Carter was built for larger water supply. Lake refilled, has some houses around it and doesn't get much fishing pressure that I've seen.

See it now. Thanks. Does Bowie Lake have public access? I’m not seeing a boat ramp.

Most fishing seems to be people with lots and private access. Other than that, the dam is a drive over spillway and we back in there (small crappie boat) then park off to side on spillway. Your gonna get wet or need waders to push off though.
