Squaw Creek Reservoir near Glen Rose, Texas
The fishing in Squaw Creek Reservoir is not the best around but all the species present are above average. LARGEMOUTH BASS: The best time to fish for the bass is in the spring and fall when the water temp is in the 50s through the mid 70s. At that time of the year you should use topwaters, soft plastics, crankbaits, and live bait near fallen trees, weeds, and coves that are protected from the wind. The rest of the year you should try fishing near structure in 10 to 30 feet of water with crankbaits, soft plastics, and live bait. CATFISH: In the spring catfish can be caught near fallen trees and inlets on live fish, dead fish, worms, stinkbait, and shrimp. The rest of the year you should try drift fishing flats with the same baits. After dark is the time catfish are the most active. CRAPPIES: The only time anybody fishes here is in the spring when the crappies can be caught in large numbers near fallen trees, brush, rocks, and protected coves on jigs, spinners, and live bait. WHITE BASS: The white bass are in the same boat as the crappies as far as fishing interests goes; huge numbers of people fish for them in the spring when they are running up the rivers and then forget about them the rest of the year. For white bass the best baits are jigs, soft plastics, live bait, and spinners. Good luck fishing!
