Gibbons Creek Reservoir

Anderson, TX 77830


Ready to catch the big one? Come on over to Gibbons Creek Reservoir. Originally stocked by The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in 1981, the Reservoir supports healthy populations of largemouth bass, catfish, crappie, and an assortment of bluegills and sunfish. A quarter million hybrid Texas-Florida largemouth bass were introduced in 1985, with 133,000 more added to the stock in 2002. With such a rich stocking history, the fish are biting. So come on over and bring your rod and reel.

Maybe you feel like taking a spin on your Jet Ski, tubing with friends, or just spending the day in the boat. Come on over to Gibbons Creek for that, too. Public boat ramps provide quick, easy access to the water. Covering 2770 acres, the main body of the lake ranges from 12 to 37 feet deep, with creek arms varying in depth from 3 to 13 feet. There's plenty of room here for the water contact sports you enjoy.
