Abilene is situated within easy driving distance to many good public waters that contain good populations of fish. . Listed below are locations and information from the local district inland fisheries division of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's Big Country Angler's Guide as well as information from other sources. Some of the fish populations in some smaller lakes have been devastated by the severe drought conditions and in some cases by golden algae. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is restocking these bodies of water as soon as conditions improve for optimum success.
