The "best lake this spring" thread reminded me to ask y'all this..

A friend and I are planning on taking a few days, maybe a week this spring to a lake somewhere to fish/camp. We were talking about Pinkston and Nacachonie, but I don't see anywhere on those lakes to pitch a tent, and a week on lakes that small would probably get a little boring. We'll have the boat with us (22' Majek.)

So yeah, recommend me some lakes that will have a place to setup camp and good bass fishing! We're coming from Houston so somewhere within about 300 miles or so.

Only lakes to exclude from your recommendations are Rayburn, Livingston, Conroe, Toledo Bend, and Belton. Been going to those lakes for years, and wanting to try somewhere different.

(Just a thought... We were also talking about staying at a lake like Grapevine or Ray Roberts, and fishing all the DFW area lakes for the week.)

Thanks guys!!! grin

If coming to N Tex, I would recommend coming late spring. From my experience, Grapevine will get hot a couple of weeks prior to Lewisville and Ray Roberts. Our lakes tend to be nearly a month behind East Texas lakes. Robert's has some pretty places to stay and camp and be out of the city. If staying on the North east end of Robert's, Texoma would be Closer than Grapevine.

Joe Pool is a tough lake but we have had some awesome days on it, both numbers and big fish. However, we have had our share of "no fish" days as well. I don't think you would get bored in a week. Loyd Park looks to be a very nice campground, it can get full over a holiday or when the weather is nice. Also, you would be fairly close to other DFW lakes. Good luck.


Hey--we finally caught one!

Not sure how easy it is to break down and setup your camp, but you could do Roberts, Grapevine, and fish Bridgeport and camp at PK and fish it for a couple of days for a different look, less educated fish on Bridgeport, and just fun to fish PK because of the scenery if nothing else. Tons of camping options around PK

Bob Sandlin State Park is really nice and besides Bob Sandlin you are a fairly short distance from other lakes like Cypress Springs, Monticello (Uh-Oh, Sorry!) Winnsboro, Fork, Quitman, Welsh, etc.

I knew there was a lake I was forgetting to exclude.. I've been going to Houston County the past 3 years very often. My favorite lake as of now, just wanting something different!
Thanks for everyone for the suggestions! Exactly what I was looking for
