With the country beginning to reopen from the COVID-19 pandemic, families across America are looking forward to some cool water this summer, especially in this Texas heat. Whether you’re into fishing or just floating, the rivers and lakes here in Texas offer it all. So, I decided to round up the top water holes here in our Lone Star State! For the fishers, I also included the top 5 fishing lakes in Texas.
Lake Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ)
Toledo Bend Reservoir
Cedar Creek Lake
Eagle Mountain Lake
Lake Marble Falls
Possum Kingdom Lake
Sam Rayburn Reservoir
San Marcos River
Rio Grande River
