Considered a relatively shallow lake, B A Steinhagen Lake is a 10,700-acre lake in the southeast part of the state, 8 miles southwest of Jasper, TX. The water is often muddy, or at least murky. Catfish fishing is top choice with local anglers, although it can be great for sunfish fishing as well. Additionally the lake hosts crappie, bass, white bass, hybrid striped bass, bowfin and longnose gar. So the angling choices are many.
Boat ramps, fishing piers, and fish-cleaning stations are located in the lakeside campgrounds. Special areas are designated for canoe and kayak launching. Plenty of shallow-water areas with thick vegetation provide great cover for fish and baitfish when shallow, and flooded timber is the primary cover when the fish move to deeper water.
