Fairfield Lake
« on: October 09, 2015, 10:41:00 AM »
New to the Board and was wondering if anyone knows if there are bream, blue gill, red ears, or any type of perch located in Fairfield Lake since the fish kills. I plan to camp there but if the fishing is bad may resort to finding a different location...thanks for your assistance.

 :Welcome2 to the board.

I have never been there but hopefully one of the members have fished the lake and can provide you some information.

Here is the link to the State Park there and what information they provide:

"Fairfield Lake continues to experience late-summer fish kills, and TPWD has suspended stocking at this lake until further notice. Fish kills have been documented on this power-plant lake since 2003. They occur in August and September when hot weather and shorter days lead to a shortage of oxygen in the water; the most recent one occurred on 09/13/2014. For updates, visit the Facebook page for TPWD's Tyler field office."

The site also says: 

"Sept. 17, 2015:  FM 3285 (the main road into the park) is under construction until further notice . . . "

So you might want to telephone them before you go.
