While there are many areas around Lake Meredith's shores to fish, easily accessible areas include the docks at Sanford-Yake and Spring Canyon. Other good fishing spots are the shores of Harbor Bay, Cedar Canyon, Chimney Hollow, or Bugbee Canyon.
Texas Parks & Wildlife Department has information on licenses and other regulations.
