Willow Waterhole sampling shows a thriving fishery

I participated in a fish sampling this past Tuesday and was amazed at the quality of the fishery that exists at the WILLOW WATERHOLE. img_2028We collected a variety of species including some large mouth bass, check out this nice specimen being displayed by Alice Best, fishery biologist with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Inland Fisheries Department. We also saw Sunfish, Shad, Tilapia, Carp and Armored Catfish.

The fish were in catchable numbers and size to justify a nice morning or afternoon’s effort.

Any one needing directions or tips on the fishing please feel free to call me . Mike Frankoff- 713-553-3003
