new reservoir, named for the president of the Colorado River Water District,
is a welcome addition to the West Texas fishing scene. Watch this one.
It has been stocked with smallmouth bass and the so-called "Arkansas strain"
of walleye that has reached weights of 21-22 pounds in Arkansas and Missouri."
Ivie Reservoir is currently one of the best Bass fishing lakes in Texas,
and in the nation. Five, six and seven pounders are common, with eight,
nine and ten pounders a real possibility. Every trip could produce a new
lake record. If Crappie or Catfish is your desire, a fun filled trip is
in store. With a large population of Bass, Crappie and Catfish, this lake
has some of the best all around fishing in the state."
