For outdoor enthusiasts, Willow Point Resort offers various activities to elevate your December escape. The glistening waters of Lake Buchanan beckon fishing enthusiasts. Why not “reel in the new year” on the lake?

Local fishing expert Travis Holland says, “Fishing is slower this time of year but is good from midday to afternoon. White bass are still strong on jigging spoons 25-50 feet of water. Stripers were a little less cooperative, but a few afternoons had some fantastic action under the birds. Stripers are hitting anything top water, spoons, and swimbaits. Live bait is still producing when you can catch it, or vertically jigging spoons 25-50 feet of water with the fish also hitting deadsticked swimbaits.”

Evenings at the resort come alive with nightly bonfires under the stars. Guests gather to share stories and enjoy the warmth of the crackling flames. These gatherings foster connections and add a cozy and memorable touch to the holiday season.
