About Lake Tawakoni

Located just shy of 50 miles east of Dallas, Lake Tawakoni is a 37,879-acre reservoir that spans three Texas counties - Van Zandt, Hunt and Rains.  Tawakoni takes its name from the the Tawakoni Native American people belonging to the Caddo Nation who inhabited that region of Texas.

Fishing Lake Tawakoni

Like so many of the reservoirs built in the 50s and 60s, Lake Tawakoni doesn't suffer from an overabundance of aquatic vegetation, although you will find some emergent plants as the water levels increase. Because of the limited cover, when you do find it, you'll also find the Largemouth Bass. Look for flooded timber throughout the lake for your best angling experience. 

Warren Sprague caught the Tawakoni record Largemouth Bass in May 2018. That fish weighed 14 pounds and ws 25 inches. But Tawakoni is known for its fat cats. Jody Jenkins still holds the record for the fish he landed in 2014 - a Blue Catfish weighing 87.50 pounds and measuring 52.50 inches (that's a little more than 4 feet 5 inches!)

Lake Tawakoni Fishing Regulations

Special catfish limits are in effect on this lake. Visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife website for information about Grapevine fishing regulations and records, stocking history, and the latest survey report.
