Lone Star Lakes - Fishing Opportunities

Crane Lake has good populations of striped bass, white perch, largemouth bass, bluegill, white catfish, and spot. Channel catfish were stocked in 1992, and blue catfish from the James River have now moved into the lake via Chuckatuck Creek. Saltwater fish, such as bluefish and flounder, are also found in the lakes at times. The lake also has blue crabs, which makes live bait fishing difficult.

Butler Tract, Crystal, and Annette Lakes are all interconnected. They contain redear sunfish, largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, and white perch. Butler Tract, in particular, has a lot of bass--mostly small, but some citations are caught each year. Southern Lake and Lake Wahoo, which are interconnected, contain largemouth bass, crappie, and bluegill, and were stocked with channel catfish in 1992. These lakes can be difficult to fish due to the steep shorelines, but they can produce some excellent fishing.
