Has anyone been to lake Amon Carter? Thinking of heading up there this weekend but have never been. Fishing mainly for bass but always up for crappie too.

The old lake and new lake are connected by a tunnel through the old lake dam. You can fish both. Old lake has docs and the new lake has lots of timber. I always launch on the new side as it’s not far from the tunnel if you want to try the old lake.

Thanks. I may give it a go and see if it’s any good.

I've been a few times years ago. New Lake was always super clear water, while the Old Lake was your typical clarity.

I've had my best luck going down the west side on the new lake and letting the current carry watermelon flukes through the trees. You can usually stick a couple of decent fish in April and May doing this.

Used to fish off the tunnel mornings after pulling a 12-hour on flowbacks on the shale. Very good action, and big bass show up at the tunnel area in the evenings.
