Lake Livingston, TX

Famous for some of the best white bass fishing in Texas, Lake Livingston is a 90,000-acre lake in the southeast part of the state. Catfish, crappie, bass, stripers and hybrid striped bass are popular targets here as well. Additionally, there are populations of gar, bluegill and other sunfish. The most popular way to fish on this large impoundment is with a boat.

There is limited access to the 450 miles of shoreline for fishing from the bank, but some designated bank fishing areas are easily accessible. A fishing pier and fish-cleaning stations are available to the public. Canoes and kayaks are an ideal way to fish the shallow-water vegetation which is prevalent in the upper reaches of the lake and in the backs of many coves. Multiple boat launch ramps, located around the lake expedite launching of all types of pleasure and fishing boats. Several marinas on the lake provide amenities to boating and fishing enthusiasts. Scattered around the lake are a variety of campgrounds and RV parks, plus other lodging choices.
