Lake Somerville, TX

Notorious for excellent white bass fishing, Lake Somerville is a 11,500-acre lake in the southeast part of the state, at Somerville, TX. Over 80 miles of shoreline surround this fertile fishery that offers fishing for bass, crappie, catfish, hybrid stripers, and numerous sunfish species, including bluegill. Nearly a dozen boat ramps and a couple marinas make this an ideal place to go boating and fishing. Bass boats, pontoons, runabouts, pleasure boats, sailboats, canoes, kayaks and a host of smaller fishing boats all use these waters. Except at high-water levels, there is little vegetation in the lake. Fish tend to follow the baitfish as they move shallow in spring and fall, then deeper in summer and winter. Hybrids and white bass may be found in open water (not relating to structure) as long as the schools of bait are in that area. Bass, crappie and sunfish will relate to rocky banks, points, humps, ledges, creek channels or brush.
