Fishing Lake Alan Henry is fast becoming known as one of the premier fishing lakes in the state of Texas for largemouth bass. Tournaments are held throughout the year, and a number of ShareLunkers have been caught in the past two years. A Texas State Fishing License is required in order to fish at Lake Alan Henry. For information on current fishing regulations, please contact Texas Parks & Wildlife at (806) 655-4341.
Lake Alan Henry was stocked with fish in 1993 and 1994, as soon as the Dam was completed and the lake began to impound water. The Fisheries Division of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is responsible not only for the stocking operation, but also to monitor fish populations and reproduction annually on various species. Contact the Fisheries Division Office for further information concerning Lake Alan Henry at (806) 655-4341.
Lake Alan Henry was stocked with close to a million fingerlings of smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, white crappie, channel catfish, blue catfish, bluegill, and gizzard shad. Several hundred adult specimens of largemouth bass and channel catfish were stocked as well.
In 1996, for the first time in Texas, 145 adult specimens of Alabama spotted bass were also stocked in the lake. Alan Henry's shoreline is steep and rocky, a favorite habitat of spotted bass. The spotted bass will not directly compete with largemouth bass, because largemouth bass prefer more open water habitat.
The record for a largemouth bass at Lake Alan Henry is 15.0 pounds caught by Billy Greeson on March 31, 2006!
