Proctor lake has become a hot spot for fishing in 2018

Loads of stripers, catfish in the 80-pound range and lots of largemouth bass are being reported at Lake Proctor which has suddenly become a fishing hotspot in Texas.

If you’re headed out to the lake this weekend take plenty of water for drinking and sunscreen as a stretch of 100 degrees is expected to start this weekend.
