Choke Canyon Reservoir Fishing Guide Evan Coleman
Choke Canyon lies in the thick of the brushy heartland of the South Texas Plains, where it is said that "everything sticks, stings, or stinks." The Choke Canyon Dam which creates the reservoir is located approximately 4 miles west of Three Rivers in Live Oak County, on the Frio River, a major tributary of the Nueces River. The reservoir provides drinking water for the city of Corpus Christi, and excellent fishing opportunities for anglers of all abilities, particularly those fishing for largemouth bass and catfish.
When fishing Choke Canyon, you can expect the water clarity to typically range from clear to slightly stained. The reservoir offers a range of habitat, including isolated beds of water stargrass, American pondweed, coontail, cattail, rushes, steep rocky banks, flooded timber, shallow brushy flats, and creek channels. You will also find moderate densities of hydrilla.The record largemouth bass for Choke Canyon Reservoir is 15.45 pounds.
