best lakes near dallas,texas

Jump to last reply

I recently moved to Dallas, Texas. Before I moved I was somewhat already familiar with the area, not so much as the natives are, but more than youre average foreigner.

But with that being said, Im still looking for a great lake to spend time at.

Im looking for a rather large lake to fish at. I recently explored Joe Pool lake. I went to some area businesses in Cedar Hill, TX asking them for direction to get to Joe Pool Lake,..no one seemed to know how to get to the lake.

Finally, one older woman said the best way to get to Joe Pool lake was to get back onto I-20, and take the Great Southwestern Parkway exit. So I did that, and I headed southbound for about 5 miles or so,.and I drove clear across the lake!! I didnt get it,.there was no place to pull over, no where to park and get the fishing poles out.

I saw a small marina on the side, I think it said something like "Oasis Marina", or something, and they featured boat rentals.

I knew right away that this was a "city lake". I am looking for more of a laid back type of lake. Not a lake where Im prone to see lots of people on jetskis, rollerblades, joggers, etc.

I want a real lake, a good lake to go fishing at. The only lake that even comes to mind, is Lake Texoma-the best and largest lake in the Southwestern United States, and home to some of the best striper and white bass catches ever known.

Yes, Texoma is truly a superb lake! But Im not inclinded to making one hour trips to the lake that frequently.

I havent yet checked out Lewisville Lake, Hubbard, or Roberts, but they seem to strike interest in me.

Im open for suggestions

again, Im looking for nice big lake, close to Dallas that is excellent for fishing and camping out at.
