When visiting a lake, the list of potential activities is usually pretty long. But, if you visit a lake famous for its fishing potential, that list shortens to one singular goal, and that is catching your limit. Sure, you can tube, kayak, paddleboard, or jet ski, but the majority of visitors will have lines in the water.
Lake Whitney is one of these locales where the aquatic game are plentiful, the anglers are passionate, and the menu for tonight’s dinner probably has a species of fish on it. If you’re lucky, you might catch the prized striper bass.
Species of Fish Ripe for the Catching
With 225 miles of shoreline, it is no wonder why fishing season at Lake Whitney is a year-round affair. Something worth noting, though, is the change in certain fish’s behavior from season to season. For instance, while striped bass can be easily snagged in shallower water during the spring and fall, in the warmer months they go deeper, out of reach unless you fish by boat.
That being said, if you know what you want to catch, what bait they will take, and when the best time of day to attempt to hook them might be, you will not be disappointed. Not with such a plethora of species to focus on:
