Lake Nolte (Meadow Lake)


View Larger Map

Meadow Lake is located in Guadalupe County south of Seguin. The pond area is 153 acres with a storage capacity of 1,550 acre-feet. This small, narrow lake provides less area for skiers and more undisturbed fishing for anglers, including bait chunkers and trotliners. Maximum depth is about 35 feet.

Access

Fishing boats only can launch at River Shade RV Park, 3995 S. State Highway 123 Bypass (at the river bridge), between 9 a.m. and dark. (830) 379-8826.

General Recreation

Boating, water skiing, jet skiing and fishing.

Fishing

Game species include largemouth bass, Guadalupe (spotted) bass, crappie and catfish. Largemouths and Guadalupe bass spawn from February through most of April in shallow water. There are some coves with water less than 10 feet deep that will hold both species through the spawn. Guadalupe bass will be found in areas with the most rocks and gravel. Plastic worms (4 and 6 inches) in purple with white or yellow tails and chartreuse spinnerbaits are good for largemouths. Smaller spinnerbaits with bucktail jigs in brown-red (cool weather) or brown-chartreuse (warm weather) combinations take many of the spotted fish. Some crappie is taken from submerged structures near deep water. Night fishing with minnows under corks around lighted boat docks is popular. Channel, yellow and blue catfish are taken on trotlines as well as by rod and reel anglers. Hot dogs soaked in liquid fish attractor work well for channels.
