Fishing and Area Lakes

Texas’ best fishing is just a cast away!

Terrell is located within a triangle formed by three of the best fishing lakes in Texas. Lakes Ray Hubbard, Tawakoni, and Fork are all less than an hour drive from Terrell. All three lakes offer campgrounds, picnic areas, fishing and boating facilities.

Lake Tawakoni with 57 sq. miles of surface area is billed as the home of the largest catfish in Texas, a 104- pound blue cat.

Lake Fork has a national reputation. Eight of the top 10 largemouth bass caught in Texas, including the state’s largest  -- an 18 pound, 2 ounce trophy caught in January, 1992  -- have come from this reservoir located about 45 miles east of Terrell.

Lake Ray Hubbard is located 12 miles west of Terrell off highway 80.

Fishing is also available at Cedar Creek Reservoir, 20 miles south of Terrell off Hwy 175.
