Most of these catches are actually FOSSIL CREEK
Avatar of Speciesmultidex

Don’t know anything about the training lagoon but almost all these catches are actually at big fossil creek by I35 behind the dominoes and Ghengis grill, below the parking platform or from the platform itself. Big fossil creek is a wonderful place to fish, usually clear water to sight fish for sunfish (7 species of sunfish reside here) and to catch the bass which are on the smaller side but bite on everything. I’ve personally caught only one bass here over 4 pounds.

Urban fishing at its finest
Avatar of notahippie

If you can mentally get past the garbage, this place is fantastic. I've observed three species of catfish, three species of bass, five species of sunfish and white crappie here. Probably the best creek fishing in the area for fly fishing. Wear boots or old shoes because you will get wet.
