I actually miss it. I prefer it over Tawakoni. Just wish there were more free ramps. I wont pay $20 to launch anywhere. There's no other lake (maybe Palestine) that gives you the "powerline pucker" like Ray Hubbard roflmao

Nothing like the thrill of punching urban trash mats for giant bass. Just try to avoid the floating syringes.

I normally don't fish Ray Hubbard when the water temps fall below 55. I like the lake in the spring and fall the best. Will fish it at night in the summer.

My biggest fish I've caught on the lake came in late Feb (2005) when the water temp was around 50. Came on a Bandit 600 in Texas Red Craw along the rip rap. Cranked it down until I felt it banging off the rocks.

Here are a couple of pics from last month before the water temps got below 60. We launched at the Rockwall ramp. Surprising is was not too busy that morning. My son and his son. Grandpa didn't catch anything.

there was a time a few years ago we were catching good sized fish (3-7lbs) flipping into a huge mat of old water bottles and what looked like old diapers. Mat must have been 2-3 acres in size. My partner caught a condom on a crank bait one time. Not mention I have recovered 30+ bodies from the lake.

She's earned her name of Lake Sh#t Pit

Lake Arlington and Ray Hubbard have a lot in common,
  • Former power plant lakes
  • Sketchy launch ramps
  • Similar cover with docks and rocks
  • Trash filled from the metro mess
  • Surprisingly good fishing at times
