Location: Coleman County near Talpa

Fishing cover/structure: Talpa City Lake has an abundance of milfoil, a species of aquatic vegetation, and rocky habitat. There is also a rip-rap dam and a well defined creek channel. The tower at the dam often holds good concentrations of fish.

28 acres
  Water clarity: 3 to 8 feet and green colored
  Comments: If you like fihing vegetation and clear water, Talpa City is the place to go. Small largemouth bass are abundant, but there are typically enough 3 to 6 pound bass to make fishing really exciting. Rat-L-Traps and spinner baits in the early spring are effective for largemouth bass. When vegetation gets thick, surface lures and plastic worms are good choices. This is an excellent float-tube lake. Bluegill are abundant and can be easily caught from the shore, but public shore fishing access is limited to the area around the dam and spillway. Channel catfish abundance is unknown, but this type of lake typically produces quality-sized catfish.
