About Our Association


The Novillo Sportfishing Association is made up of a collection of largemouth bass fishing aficionados from both the United States and Mexico. North Americans started enjoying El Novillo when the lake opened in the early 1960s. As the fishing got better, more and more fishermen were drawn to the lake for the fantastic fishing experience.

Benefits of Becoming a Member


The biggest advantage of being a member of the Novillo Sportfishing Association has always been the members themselves. Probably because of the remoteness of our location, every member will always go out of their way to assist anyone who needs assistance in or around the lake.
