A canal connects the east and west lakes of lake Tyler. Both lakes have a great reputation as consistent largemouth bass fisheries. The lake offers diverse opportunities to target bass along the boat docks, shoreline vegetation, and offshore structure. Most largemouth are in the 2- to 8-lb class. Size distribution of crappie is also good, providing another great angling opportunity. If you are looking to diversify your skills to target largemouth bass or put some meat in the freezer, this is the lake for you.
