Fishing in Port Arthur

Fishing in Port Arthur on Sabine Lake offers everything you’d expect from a true Texan bay – a year-round opportunity to catch Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. Being in the shadow of its famous neighbor, Galveston Bay, Sabine Lake has been called “the forgotten bay”. However, this brings a certain advantage – the lake has much less fishing pressure and the fish population is thriving. 
 

Where to Go

Port Arthur is a great starting point for any fishing trip. As it’s in the middle of the lake’s western shore, you can reach the deepest parts within a few miles, or even visit the lake’s eastern coast in Louisiana. Head out north and you’ll find yourself in the serene spots of the Neches River or the Sabine River, where you can target Largemouth Bass. If you’re up for larger fish or more challenging waters, head out to the Gulf. This will potentially bring you Cobia and Spanish Mackerel.
 
The fish change their spots throughout the year, so there are no set rules on where you can find a specific species. Don’t worry, you don’t have to research this on your own! Finding a local fishing guide and relying on their experience saves lots of time and gives you the best chance of having a successful day on the water. 
 

What to Expect

First-timers will feel at ease. As most fishing trips take place inshore, they’re very novice-friendly and guides don’t expect their guests to be professionals. 
 
Local fishing guides will provide your fishing equipment and let you keep the catch. The differences between the guides are in the small details – some will clean your catch free of charge, some will cover your snacks and drinks, and some will ask you to prepare this yourself.
 
When it comes to your fishing experience itself, Lake Sabine is pretty two-faced. The western side, where you’ll be launching from, is urban and industrial, with several oil facilities. The eastern side, which belongs to Louisiana, is pristine, full of grassy marshes, and doesn’t have a single building construction in sight!
 

Regulations

You’ll need to purchase a valid Texas fishing license. This license is accepted in Louisiana as well, so you can freely cross the state border at the lake. Just make sure to follow Texas catch limits at all times.
 
Whether you choose to fish in the lake, go upstream to the river, or head out to the Gulf, you’ll have a chance to catch fish year round. Some final advice: fishing in Port Arthur isn’t a full experience unless you blast at least one Janis Joplin song at some point of your trip – after all, this is her hometown!

Port Arthur Fishing Seasons

January
In winter, you’ll find good Trout fishing in the north of the lake. Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Redfish are good around the jetties, especially if you’re catching them using live Shrimp.
 
February
Try catching Flounder around marsh drains. The way to go is using jigs topped with Shrimp. Trout fishing is better on the Louisiana shoreline.
 
March
Visit the southern part of the lake and you’ll find good Sheepshead and Black Drum fishing around the jetties.
 
April
If you simply can’t wait to go to the Gulf – then don’t! You’ll have great chances of catching Spanish Mackerel this time of year.
 
May
With warmer temperatures, there’s simply more of everything in these waters. Cobia start to show more in the Gulf, and Tripletail are around the jetties.
 
June
Trout and Redfish are easy to catch if you search under rafts of shad on topwater. Just look for birds, they’ll find the fishing spot for you.
 
July
July brings great fishing opportunities, especially at the southern part of the lake. Drift for Trout at the reefs using live Shrimp.
 
August
Redfish and Trout fishing is as good as ever, while the Gulf brings amazing Cobia fishing. During summer, even the Texan side of the lake has great Trout fishing.
 
September
If you’re after Bull Reds, target them at the jetties using Crabs. You’ll also find Sheepshead and Black Drum there but, to hook them, you should use live Shrimp. 
 
October
The Flounder bite is great, so don’t miss out on the chance to land a few. Trout and Redfish are present in huge numbers, so you have what you need to catch the Big Three.
 
November
As the weather gets colder, most fish species are harder to find. Luckily, Redfish and Flounder still offer great fishing opportunities. 
 
December
You can still have some great Trout action but it’s better to visit the Louisiana shoreline for the trip. The trick is to use slow-sinking plugs.
