Lake Buchanan

Locations of Fish Attractors

Return to Lake Buchanan fishing page

Cedar-tree fish attractors have been added to this reservoir. They were placed by TPWD in cooperation with the Lake Buchanan Conservation Corporation. Most attractors are placed on key structure spots including drop-offs, humps and roadbeds. Black bass, crappie and sunfish use the attractors for cover. Anglers may use GPS in conjunction with a fish finder to locate these structures. Locations of these structures are shown on the map below. Coordinates are also available in downloadable files.
