Lake Livingston Real Estate...that's what's HOT!
Each day a man spends fishing is NOT deducted from his life.
It just makes you want to fish every day doesn't it?
Well, here you can! Sitting on the banks of Lake Livingston or boating our waterways you won't be disappointed!
At least once a week I'm asked, "how's the fishing and what kind of fish do you have there?" Yes, there are others but these are the most predominant fish that can be found here at the lake.
Get your fishing poles ready and CATCH.....

Statewide regulations apply to all fishes with the exception of blue and channel catfish. For portions of the lake in Polk, San Jacinto, Trinity and Walker counties, the daily bag and possession limit for blue and channel catfish is 50.
Lake Livingston is a notable white bass fishery. White bass are plentiful and grow to large sizes. Also notable is the catfish fishery, dominated by blue catfish. Largemouth bass, striped bass, and crappie are less abundant but good catches are possible in areas of the reservoir where habitat is available.
Some native emergent vegetation can be found in the upper areas of the reservoir. Very little cover exists in the lower reservoir due to vertical bulkhead.
Tips & Tactics
White bass are most readily caught in early spring in the many creeks that feed into Lake Livingston. Striped bass can be caught around the 190 bridge area by trolling and vertical jigging spoons or live shad. Largemouth bass are most frequently caught in the bays and creeks from the Kickapoo/Penwaugh area northward. Spring and fall are the most successful seasons for largemouths. Channel and blue catfish can be caught most any time of year on a variety of organic and live baits over the main river channel and in off channel tributaries and creeks.
