Located on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River in Denton County and surrounded by 9,000 protected acres of nature, Lewisville Lake spans 29,000 acres and has 233 miles of shoreline.  White crappie and white bass provide the most angling activity on this lake.  Largemouth bass, the most popular fish in Texas, is also popular at Lewisville and the lake is noted as the official "Urban Bass Fishing Capital of Texas."  With an average depth of 25 feet, it is large enough to host a multitude of activities such as fishing, water sports, boating, and miles of scenic hike & bike trails. 

The lake is very close to a large population base in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, so it is a popular destination in the summer months. Lewisville Lake is a Corps of Engineers reservoir.  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.

Hybrid striped bass have been stocked and provide anglers with another open water sport fish. The blue and channel catfish fisheries are excellent.
