Lake Survey Shows Wichita Falls Fishing Looking Up

There’s good news and, well, not the best of news about fishing at Wichita Falls. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department officials recently checked out the hybrid striped bass and channel catfish populations of Lake Wichita, three miles southwest of Wichita Falls. Officials say the results were not only encouraging but exceeded expectations. Back in 2009 golden alga at the reservoir killed a lot of fish, but the lake now seems to be coming back nicely. Parks and Wildlife’s survey netted the second highest catch of hybrid striped bass ever documented at the lake. Unfortunately, almost all the fish were below the 18-inch minimum size limit. Officials said they’ll need time to grow before anglers can go after them.
