About The Moses Lake

About Moses Lake, TX

Moses Lake sits on the western Galveston Bay shore and is located in the northern part of Galveston County. It drains into the bay itself via Miller Point where there is a floodgate that protects the lake from overflowing during hurricane season. On its western point, it is fed by Moses Bayou which snakes through a flat prairie land that is historically a habitat for buffalo, deer, and water birds. Much of what surrounds the lake is undeveloped marshland, save for the Bayou Golf Course.

In the southern end of the lake, there are neighborhoods where many homeowners have direct access to the lake. This is due to the canals that are connected to the channel dredged up from Moses Bayou to Miller Point in the 70s to serve as a harbor for shrimp boats. To this day, commercial shrimp and oyster boats use the lake as a harbor from open bay waters. When the floodgates are down, the only way for boats to access the lake is via The Fish Spot, a restaurant and bait camp situated at the southern end of the canal. It has a specific boat ramp that provides direct access to the lake.

There are two ways to access Moses Lake. The northern end is popular with bank anglers who wish to fish near the floodgate. It is accessible via Skyline Drive. The south end is the recommended entry for wade and kayak anglers with its muddy flats and marshy shore.

Moses Lake Fishing Description

All About Fishing in Moses Lake, TX

Moses Lake is considered a shallow lake, but it is dotted with deep holes, particularly in the northern part of the lake, which can reach up to almost 40 feet in depth. This is where most of the fish in the area swim during the colder months. For the most part, though, anglers will find trout, redfish, summer flounder, and black drum swimming, taking shelter, and feeding in the muddy bottoms of the lake with its scattered shells and reefs. 

For anglers who want to go to the deeper part of the lake by the floodgate, a boat is always required as the open bay waters coming in via Miller Point can be quite rough. Otherwise, anglers will have a productive time shoreline casting, wade fishing, and kayak fishing on the marshlands right off Highway 146. Here you can simply park on the other side of the road and walk from 29th Street right into the marshes. The railroad bridge is especially a popular place to fish.

Moses Lake Seasonal & Other Description

Fishing Seasonality

Like many Texas water bodies, Moses Lake is a year-round fishing destination because of its mild climate. It has many permanent fish residents as well. However, spring and fall are the best seasons if you want to target as many fish species in the area. 

Night fishing for trout and redfish is fruitful during spring. If you’re more of a day angler, then you can still fish for these fish species along the shoreline using mullet and baitfish as your guide towards the bigger fish. If you’re keener to try wade fishing, then head here during March. Fall is a free-for-all for redfish as well. During the colder months, venture deeper and arm yourself with heavyweight bait to catch plenty of flounder in the deep. Otherwise, in the warmer months, drifting while jigging along the reefs will bring plenty of catch.
