Surrounded by 9,000 protected acres of nature, Lewisville Lake spans 29,000 acres and has 233 miles of shoreline. With an average depth of 25 feet, Lewisville Lake is large enough to host a multitude of activities such as fishing, water sports, boating, and miles of scenic hike & bike trails. Catch some of the biggest fish this side of Moby Dick (well, this is Texas after all), and discover why Lewisville Lake is the official "Urban Bass Fishing Capital of Texas."

Lewisville Lake is a Corps of Engineers reservoir that is immensely popular for water sports and outdoor recreation in the Dallas Fort-Worth area. The City of Lewisville manages Lewisville Lake Park, a 622-acre park on the south shore of the lake, located less than a mile from I-35E. The park offers a variety of amenities such as picnic areas, RV and tent camping, pavilions, 24-hour fishing barges, swimming beaches, and athletic facilities. Marinas, boat and jet-ski rentals, launch ramps and angler's supplies are also available on Lewisville Lake.

Fishing on Lewisville Lake includes large-mouth bass, crappie, catfish, white bass and spectacular hybrid white/striped bass. Swimming, water skiing, jet skiing, sailing, sail boarding, camping, biking and picnicking all are part of what makes Lewisville Lake a popular destination throughout the year.
