Default Inks Lake

I did a quick search and the information was overwhelming. So I will start another..
We are going to camp out at Inks lake in a couple weeks for my sons birthday. Looking for any fishing tips. Don't have anything specific in mind. Just getting away for a couple days of rest. Any campsite information on which ones are closest to the water is also helpful.

For fishing book a trip with Empty Pockets guide service. Request Graham to take you out. ( he's running my boat ). Fishing on Buch is on fire right now. As far as inks bank fishing can be good. Get some cattle cubes and chum an area.

Thanks for the heads up Brandon. AND My wife was considering cancelling the trip because she knew I would have to jump if we went. Married for 10 years, she may just be correct this one time.

Heading to Inks state park in two weeks to staying in a "cabin". Looking for any input on fishing. I'll be fishing from the bank.

Anything else we should see when we are there? we will be there two nights.

Thanks!

The boat launch is currently closed for construction. If you take a boat it will have to be launched from Rockaway RV Park at the north end of lake off Hwy 29. Cost is $10 and the gate is unlocked at 7am and locked at 8pm.

Late evening/early am white whopper ploppers.Even better if water is choppy. I also like throwing chatterbait. Black if water is stained. White/chartreuse if water is clear. Hopefully you'll get lucky and find whites schooling on top. In that case and pop-r, any color.

Fishing off either pier on inks can be rewarding, at night the shad gather in the lights. Weve caught whites, hybrids, largemouth, and stripers on crankbaits anything that dives 2-5 feet. Hopefully the pics work Im new around here.

Outstanding! Had no idea they had stripers.

If you haven't already booked a spot it may be full. It's a beautiful place, but always crowded

Crowded it is these days.. Months out on reservations.. Its hard to believe that Back in the "good ole days", the 70's and early 80's, we just drove up there and rented a camp site, and we got the same one 60-70% of the time... My how things have changed...

We'll be heading down Friday to stay in Cabin #5. Skipping the steamy bow opener to hang and swim with the wife/kids.

We were thinking about stopping for lunch in Burnet and looking for ideas on a good place to eat before we head to the park. Any suggestions!

Some casual counter service greasy food would be great. Would also consider BBQ. Google search gave me a few ideas. Bill's Burgers and BBQ Shak sounded good.

Bills Burgers is real good. BBQ Shak is good but the parking is a joke and a little dangerous. Cafe 2300 outside of town going toward the lake is good. For a really good Burger go check out Reverend Jims in Buchanan Dam by the Inks Bridge. Its a Biker bar but Kid Friendly and has good views of the dam. Riley and I eat there often. For a good breakfast thats reasonable The Dam Grill in Buchanan Dam is really good. Its about 3 miles past Rev Jims on the left
