Lake Livingston Receives Fish Attractors Thanks To TBBU
Dozens of fish attractors were deployed on 1/24/17 by Texas Black Bass Unlimited in Lake Livingston. These attractors are designed to draw bait fish as well as prey fish to them.
These type of attractors have been in use all over the country successfully. They are sustainable due to the slow breakdown rate of PVC under water and though they don’t gather organic matter a quick as organic structures, they do work.
Many reservoir fisheries require some help as natural habitat such as trees & shrubs had been stripped from the valley before it was flooded.
Working to improve fisheries in the U.S. is an ongoing task that a few of us are undertaking every year. Texas Black Bass Unlimited is one of those, for 30 some years now.
Join the lake savers around America! Let’s help our environment & preserve something for our future generations!!

The Texas Department of State Health Services today issued a fish consumption advisory for Lake Livingston and portions of the Trinity River after laboratory testing of fish samples found elevated levels of dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls or PCBs.
The Lake Livingston advisory is for seven types of fish – blue catfish, flathead catfish, freshwater drum, gar, smallmouth buffalo, striped bass and white bass. The advisory is in effect for the Trinity River Basin which includes Lake Livingston and the Trinity River from U.S. 287 downstream to U.S. 90.
