Anyone still fish Lake Verret/Stephensville/Belle River?
Haven't fished there in 30 years since I moved away. Grew up at grandparents camp there fishing every weekend as a boy. Great memories.

Was just curious if bass fishing was still decent there.

As with all of our fishing down here it dependent on many things. Water clarity, water levels and moving water. The area still produces when those are right.

Belle River can produce at certain times of the year. The spillway has been absolute shit

This past year, yes. All the grass disappeared.

I dont expect it to be that bad again this summer


But to answer OPs question, thats the only area we fish. We always do well with numbers, but dont expect to catch any monsters.

Most of the fish we catch are 1-2 pounders that we take back to the camp and eat and have a good time. So the trophy baws on this site call them dinks

A fishers of Men tournament was held in the Verret area this weekend. I saw some of the bags that were weighted in and they had some nice fish mixed in. I think the winning weight was 16lbs.

Not that it matters but 17.03 won it. Big bass was 5.03. 23 anglers had over 10lbs so it's doing what it normally does this time of year.

Thats about right. That is a trophy down here. Anything over 3.5 pounds and I fell pretty damn good

The disappearance of the grass was mind boggling to say the least

Good luck! Back in the 80's, TX rigged red shad culprit worm and chartreuse/white H&H or Humdinger willow leaf spinnerbait was the ticket.

Those or a green beetle spin with gold blades pass across the cypress knees was the ticket many times. Good Lord, I used to love fishing down there.

Same here. Many of my favorite childhood memories were from the fishing camp at Belle River.
