Brand-New Bathymetry Data for Falcon Reservoir, Texas

Brand-New Bathymetry Data for Falcon Reservoir, Texas

Driven by a passionate commitment to support our customers’ enjoyment on the water, Navionics continues to enrich its chart coverage to include popular boating and fishing areas around the world. This time we have focused our efforts towards one of the most interesting lakes in The Lone Star State: Falcon Reservoir.

The lake, situated in the deep south, on the US/ Mexico border, 40 miles southeast of Laredo (Texas), has a surface of more than 83,600 acres. The reservoir is part of Falcon State park and was created in the ‘50s by the Rio Grande river impounding. The area is quite popular for water activity like boating, swimming, fishing, water skiing, kayaking and more.

The new update release has improved contours data derived from a new source of information: a multibeam sonar survey. This technique is providing us more information than ever before, and now after our cartographers worked their magic, we can present you with better charts. So, when you are out on the water you can spend your time enjoying and relaxing, knowing that we have your back. All the important details like shallow areas, humps, bars, deep holes are there, and you can locate them in a matter of seconds.

Are you an angler? Then you know that location is key. You certainly don’t want to waste any time wandering around because you are not sure of where the best spots are, when instead you could be making big catches. The SonarChartTM layer with its 1ft contours, now improved with this brand-new data, is the perfect tool to quickly find those perfect fishing spots that you always dreamt of. Update your charts now and go out on Falcon Reservoir to catch largemouth bass, catfish, crappie, white bass or alligator gar.

A couple of tips: when fishing for largemouth bass at Falcon Reservoir use SonarChart to pinpoint flooded brush, points, humps, underwater building and road bedsroadbeds and try some spinner baits, crank baits and Texas or Carolina rigged worms. If you are looking for catfish instead, you can use stink or natural baits such as shad, shrimps or sunfish.

Be aware that if you decide to go into the lake’s Mexican waters, a Mexico fishing license is necessary. You can purchase one at various Texas tackle shops.
