Caddo Lake Pros
We have three Lake Pros working Caddo. Between them, they have nearly 60 years experience fishing Caddo. Lake Pro #1's personal best on Caddo was a 9.75 pound, Lake Pro #2 finished second in the 2020 Bayou Pirates Kayak Fishing Tournament, and Lake Pro #3 coaches the North Caddo High School Bass Fishing Team.
Fishing Lake Caddo
According to Caddo legend, the lake was either formed by an earthquake in the early 1800s or by the "Great Raft", a 100-mile log jam on the Red River that backed up water into the lowlands of north Caddo Parish in Louisiana. Either way, experienced anglers will tell you it is one of the most challenging and scenic fisheries in Texas.
The Cypress Forest provides lots of cover for bass to lay in wait for their prey, and lots of structure to where they can hide from predation (meaning you) and in which lures are sure to get caught. While Caddo is good for a variety of species, like Crappie, Catfish, Chain pickerel, White & yellow bass and Sunfish, it is notorious for bass of 8 pounds or more.
Lake Caddo Fishing Regulations
Since Caddo lies on the border between Texas and Louisiana, limits for catfish, crappie, white bass and black bass apply on both the Texas and Louisiana portions of the lake. Regulations for some other species may differ between the two states.
