What Makes Falcon Lake Tick


Falcon Lake is considered by many to be the current top trophy bass lake in the country, according to Randy Myers, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department fisheries biologist in charge of managing the lake’s fishery. What leads to such a phenomenon?

Part of the lake’s success is due to its location in deep South Texas where there is a long growing season. In that environment, the tough brush country plant life follows the rise and fall of lake levels, creating great underwater habitat.
