Plan your trip to Texas
The unique part of about the state of Texas is that a majority of the lakes in the state are man-made. That won’t stop you from having a great time on the water the next time you head to the Lone Star State. Take a trip to Toledo Bend Lake, located on the eastern edge of Texas (it actually straddles the Texas/Louisiana border). With 1,200 miles of shoreline, the lake is the largest man-made lake in the South. Sam Rayburn Lake is a favorite among anglers because these friendly waters are typically full of largemouth bass, bluegill, and channel catfish. Sabine Lake is a scenic saltwater estuary is formed by a confluence of the Neches and Sabine rivers.
