Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge currently offers three tracts for fishing opportunities. Champion Lake is our largest and easiest to access. You can drive right up to the 150 foot fishing pier, fish from a boat, or along a 3,000 foot levee. The lake consists of 800 plus acres of flooded cypress trees and buttonbush. The McGuire tract requires a quarter mile walk to a two acre pond and adjacent bayou. The Brierwood tract allows access to Gaylor Lake/Davis Bayou bank line less than 50 yards from the parking area. You will have the opportunity to catch bass, crappie or catfish at each of these areas. Keep your eye out for alligators, opossum, beavers, otters, not to mention a few snakes and always have a current fishing license with you.
Except for a portable toilet at Champion Lake, there are no facilities available at any of the other sites.
Please leave the area cleaner than when you arrived.
