Lake Tyler Fishing and Water Levels

Fishing on Lake Tyler Texas

Both Lake Tyler East and Lake Tyler (West) have a widespread reputation as consistent largemouth bass fisheries. The moderately clear waters of the lakes reaches a maximum depth of 40 feet, with a fluctuation of 2 feet.

The lakes are popular with tournament anglers and host frequent night tournaments during the summer months.

Largemouth Bass, Spotted Bass, Crappie, Catfish and Sunfish are the dominant species caught in the lakes. There is moderate native vegetation, floating, submergent and emergent. At times some hydrilla is found in Lake Tyler East.

Thanks to Tyler's mild year-round climate, fishing in both lakes is good all year. However, boating and personal watercraft activity can become very busy during summer months.

Consequently, anglers find that early morning and late evening are better, quieter and less crowded times to fish.
