ACCESS/CAMPING - (See Boating for Ramps and Marinas)
Public access to Inks Lake is available through Inks Lake State Park which borders approximately one-third of the eastern shoreline. A two-lane boat ramp is available at the park along with a lighted fishing pier and plenty of shoreline access. Camping is available at the park, along with many other recreational opportunities.  Because of the park's popularity it is a good idea to make reservations well in advance if you would like to camp there.

MAPS
The LCRA  (512) 473-4083 offers a map of the lake.

FISH HATCHERY
The US Fish & Wildlife Service operates a fish hatchery near Inks Dam.  Inks Dam National Fish Hatchery plays a pivotal role in restoring Gulf Coast striped bass to the northern Gulf of Mexico and some of its tributaries. The Gulf Coast striped bass is an important sport and commercial fish, but has become severely depleted from loss of habitat and overfishing.

Leading-edge fish culture techniques employed at Inks Dam should ensure that released striped bass are well equipped to face the rigors of the wild.

The Inks Dam facility also helps restore paddlefish populations in the Mississippi River basin, and raises largemouth bass and channel catfish for sport fishing.

FISHING REGULATIONS
All fish are currently regulated under statewide regulations, with the exception of white bass, which has a 12-inch minumum length limit. The 12 inch minimum for white bass is designed to protect females from harvest before they reach sexual maturity.
