Lake Bridgeport is a secluded medium sized lake with 11,924 acres and is 20 miles long with 170 miles of shoreline. The lake is clear thanks to a rocky shore line and bottom. And it offers excellent fishing for crappie, hybrid stripped bass, and white bass.
Most of Lake Bridgeport's 170 miles of shoreline is good bass habitat, with 7 miles of rip-rap, 90 miles of boulders, and many coves and points.
Near the Lakeview Lodge on the Sid Richardson Scout Ranch, near Windy Point, Captain Kidd Point, and Steele Island, there are submerged gravel piles that were deposited when the West Fork Trinity River flowed free and uncontrolled. These piles provide excellent habitat for white bass and black basses. So grab some family or buddies, your rods and reels, and book a cabin at one of these Lake Bridgeport fishing cabins
If you don't have your own boat, rentals are available for guests at North Side Marina & Resort. See this Lake Bridgeport Fishing Guide page to find a guide - most of them will pick you up at your Lake Bridgeport fishing cabin.
