If you’re on the hunt for lake homes for sale, look to Lake Livingston in Southeast Texas. Spanning 93,000 acres, Lake Livingston is one of the largest lakes in the state and branches into four counties: San Jacinto, Walker, Polk, and Trinity. From its unparalleled access to camping and boating accommodations to its pristine scenery, Lake Livingston invites all to revel in its bounties.
Lake Livingston boasts close to 450 miles of shoreline and 100 boat launch ramps, ensuring that a great day of fishing is always in the cards. The lake is especially recognized for its white bass fishing, as the fish are abundant and generous in size. Blue and channel catfish are also common catches throughout the year. Keep to the creeks north of Kickapoo if you’re fishing for largemouth bass, and be patient. Populations of largemouth bass and crappie are less plentiful.
Fishing isn’t the only reason to head to the water. Lake Livingston is 7 miles wide at certain points, making it a popular destination for sailing enthusiasts. Jet skis, motor boats, wake boards, and kayaks also dot the lake’s horizon; and while the lake is never crowded, you don’t need to look hard to find someone enjoying themselves with a splash or two. Take your personal watercraft of choice for a ride and stop by Pine Island for a picnic or impromptu treasure hunt.

Second largest lake in Texas
Lake Livingston is a notable white bass fishery. White bass are plentiful and grow to large sizes. Also notable is the catfish fishery, dominated by blue catfish. Largemouth bass, striped bass, and crappie are less abundant but good catches are possible in areas of the reservoir where habitat is available.
Statewide regulations apply to all fishes with the exception of blue and channel catfish. For portions of the lake in Polk, San Jacinto, Trinity and Walker counties, the bag limit for blue and channel catfish is 50 per day.
Some native emergent vegetation can be found in the upper areas of the reservoir. Very little cover exists in the lower reservoir due to vertical bulkhead.
Tips & Tactics
White bass are most readily caught in early spring in the many creeks that feed into Lake Livingston. Striped bass can be caught around the 190 bridge area by trolling and vertical jigging spoons or live shad. Largemouth bass are most frequently caught in the bays and creeks from the Kickapoo/Penwaugh area northward. Spring and fall are the most successful seasons for largemouths. Channel and blue catfish can be caught most any time of year on a variety of organic and live baits over the main river channel and in off channel tributaries and creeks.
