Lake Fort Parker State Park

Fort Parker Lake is not known as a great fishing hole. Management and stocking efforts to improve the fishery have met with little success. Years of flooding from the muddy Navasota River have taken a toll on this otherwise scenic lake which has become severely silted in since impoundment in 1935. Fishing for blue and channel catfish is the best option. Boaters should exercise caution: at low water levels its easy to run aground.
