Fishing Lake Arlington
While you'll find a variety of sport fishing opportunities at Grapevine, it is best known for its Largemouth Bass population. The slot limit (see below) currently in place on Grapevine is designed to encourage the harvest of smaller Bass, thereby increasing resource availability for the larger Bass to achieve trophy-class status. You'll find that Grapevine doesn't have a lot of aquatic vegetation, but you'll find some emergent plants in the upper end of the lake. Most of the habitat in Grapevine is flooded timber, large boulders, and rocky shoreline. The record Largemouth Bass was caught in April 1999 and weighed in at 12.09 pounds and 27 inches.
