Fishing at O.C. Fisher Lake
A number of structures constitute the O.C. Fisher Lake, including rip rap, mud banks, creek channels, submerged humps, and drop-offs. It is mainly covered by terrestrial vegetation and rocks. Throughout the reservoir, coontail is found in low abundances.
Location: West side of San Angelo on the North Concho River in Tom Green County
Surface area: 5440 acres
Maximum depth: 58 feet
Despite the dry conditions of O.C. Fisher in early 2015, water levels rose during the spring. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department recently stocked the reservoir with largemouth bass, crappies, catfish, and bluegill. The majority of fish is only one to two years old, and only a few large fish can be caught. Fish populations continue to improve and expand as long as water levels are favorable.

Proline Fishing Tips
The reservoir is home to catfish that have been caught on live baits and prepared baits. Among the flooded vegetation, rip-rap, humps and drop-offs, largemouth bass are caught with minnows and artificial lures. The best way to catch white bass is by trolling artificial lures near humps and drop-offs. Anglers fish for crappie with jig and minnow near drop-offs and humps.
