Just a few miles upstream from the preserve, the Dragon Run Watershed is full of largemouth bass, catfish, pickerel and sunfish. Hidden Cove, in Arley, AL, sits on the banks of Lewis Smith Lake, known for its monster-sized striper bass and catfish. Texas has two great fish-oriented locations, Lake Texoma and Lake Tawakoni. You’ll find more stripers at Lake Texoma where they are “prolific” and Lake Tawakoni offers some of the best fishing in Texas, with a cove and inlet sprinkled lake full of sand bass, striped bass, white bass and largemouth bass.
The Southwest Zone offers the California dream of fishing. Idyllwild has a small fishing pond stocked with trout while Lake Minden, in Nicolaus has a 41-acre man-made fishing lake teaming with channel catfish, largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie and carp. Catfish is the name of the game at Wilderness Lakes in Menifee which has two well-stocked canals and hosts an annual fishing derby each year.
