No. 3: Falcon International Reservoir Falcon International Reservoir, or Falcon Lake, is a wonderful choice for diverse fishing. While it’s a great spot for bass fishing, you can catch an abundance of catfish here too. There are many public areas to settle in, but your best bet will be Falcon State Park, which includes public amenities, boat ramps, camping, and a picnic area. It’s deep in South Texas, right along the border with Mexico, but the drive is worth it!
