If you are looking for a great place to set up your family fish camp, check out Powell Park.

Many Texas fishing families come back to Powell Park over and over. 

Often, they discover the park on a day trip looking for a fun place to swim during the brutal Southeast Texas summer heat.

Amenities include a seventeen-foot water slide, water trampoline, aquatic obstacle course, challenge rockers, and a floating mat.

They come back to tent camp, bring their RV, enjoy a fishing weekend, or to relax in one of the comfortable lakeside rental cabins.

Sam Rayburn is known as one of the world’s premier bass lakes, but Powell Park is also known for big and plentiful white perch (crappie). Fishermen also do well with catfish on trotlines and trophy sized alligator gar.

For bass on Rayburn, start with:

  • Weightless Senkos near the shore on cove grass lines, lilly pads, and structure
  • Spinner baits around main lake grass
  • Crank baits of main points and secondary points in 12-15 feet of water
  • Drop shots and jigging spoons around structure (trees) in 20’ of water or more

There are also lots of catfish on Sam Rayburn:

  • Most are taken on trotlines in the main lake. Use live perch, cut perch, or shiners.
  • I prefer “noodle” lines to trot lines. They are quick to put out on our way to bass fish and easy to pick up on our way back to our fish camp. 
  • If you prefer to catch catfish by rod and reel (and you’ll be camping for a few days or more) bait your own “catfish hole” with sour corn. Pick a tree in 15’ – 25’ of water and drop down a bag or weighted bucket of sour corn. The catfish will find it. Use shiner or earthworms and you can load up eating sized catfish.

Powell Park is very popular with families stocking up on white perch (crappie). 

Catch them on live shiners or crappie jigs near flooded trees or on newer blow downs that still have green leaves.

Would you like to enjoy a memorable guided fishing trip with your team at work, church group, or family? Powell Park on Lake Sam Rayburn has a guide service for up to eight fishermen that specializes in catching large numbers of white perch.
