Rockport Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Fishing is good in the morning, but it slows down later in the day. There haven't been many anglers out fishing the reservoir. There is a giant ice sheet floating around in the reservoir; however, anglers can still fish from the shore and launch a boat. On March 7, Rockport State Park will host their Eagles on Ice program. There will be free hot chocolate and hot dogs. You'll also get a chance to see four live raptors up close, including a bald eagle. Cabela's is a co-sponsor and will bring optics for you to use for free. Many Thanks to Park Ranger Aaron Hone for the report.
