Falcon Lake is a large international reservoir on the Rio Grande, with stunning views and amazing wildlife. With an abundance of natural resources, a Falcon Lake fishing adventure will leave you wanting more. This sun-soaked body of water is calm and beautiful, and it’s a real hidden gem you’ll love to return to.

The lake is fairly shallow with rocks and timber providing structure for the fish that inhabit it. It provides great fishing opportunities year-round, with Largemouth Bass being the top target. Apart from Largemouth, fishing for Channel Catfish, Crappie, White Bass, and Alligator Gar is also good throughout the year.

If you’re looking for a fun day on the water, spending some quality time with your family, a half day trip is the way to go. However, to really fill your bags, you should consider booking a full day trip. If you’re looking to reel in a specific species, check out some of the personalized fishing trips on offer.

Zapata is a quaint town on the edge of the lake that will provide you with peace and quiet, but also with everything you need for a fun day of fishing. Most of the charters in the area head out of the Falcon Lake County Park and Boat Ramp. You can also head to some of the smaller places like Lopeno.
