    I have to say that we have had the best of luck on Rayburn. We sat in one spot and caught 144 1-2lb channels. We also do all of our Blue Gill and trotlining on Rayburn and do very well.

    For size, I may go with Texoma. Choke Canyon is pretty good for numbers. Conroe has one of the largest populations of channels.

    i would have to say that any lake in texas can be argued in this. Its all in finding the fish. My favorite lakes are so small that almost no one has heard of them, yet they produce alot of catfish. Hords Creek for channel cats, OH Ivie for yellow cat, and Lake waco for blue (not so sure about lake waco but only place i have really caught alot in one day.)

    IMO - gonna vary by species, size, and time of year can be a facor as well. The artical below does not touch them all, but it gives a decent overview of some of the main cat lakes in Texas.

    This could just be a regional popularity contest.... I've been practicing for retirement for the past two years and getting ready to be a full time catfisherman. I say Conroe for channels (lots of little ones), Houston for blues and toss up between Texana and Coleto Creek for yellows. Although you really have to hide your lines on Coleto from the bass fishermen - they're fond of cutting them and sinking them when they snag them with their lures. Guess that settles it for me - best flathead lake is Texana.
