Lake Conroe is a clear-water lake less than 60 miles north of Houston. Partly rimmed by the Sam Houston National Forest, Lake Conroe is a reservoir with both a very natural setting and an amenity-rich commercial one. Renting a boat or taking lunch in a lake-side restaurant is as possible here as taking a hike through the woods or cooking a catch of fish over open flame in a campground.

Lake Conroe is a lake with plenty of variety in regards to fish. The most abundant sportsfish is the channel catfish, but many species are common here and many grow to massive sizes. Want a trophy size largemouth bass? While these fish are nowhere near as abundant as the catfish, they grow unusually large and healthy. Largemouth bass of over 14 pounds have been caught here. Bluegill also grow to impressive weights - such as 12 pounds. Crappie is a popular catch and the fighting striped bass have been recently introduced.

What may be the largest species in the lake, however, is the grass carp. These can grow to 40 pounds. Lake Conroe has a very strict catch and release policy for these protected fish.
