Bear Branch Reservoir

I have only been here a couple of times, but not necessarily to fish(spill way being the exception). Based on Texas Fishing Forum Posts it sounds like there are some big fish in here. Reported fish include: Bass, Crappie, Catfish and bluegill. The reservoir does not appear to be managed and is left in a natural setting. This often leads to significant moss & hydrilla blooms during the summer. The reservoir is also one of the larger bodies of water with a significant amount of structure in the form of aquatic plants, weeds, downed trees and submerged trees. This location is best fished by boat; bring your canoe or kayak and be ready to walk a bit to the launch.

Getting There

The best access point is to take Woodlands Parkway to Branch Crossing and make a right. Follow Branch Crossing to Alden Bridge drive and make another right. After a little ways you will see a school on your right followed by a park. Pull into the park and find parking as close to the end of the parking lot as you can. A trail winds past a few cabanas and leads to a launch pad(cement dock) for boats.
