About Powell River 

Located in Denton County, near the town of Lewisville, Lewisville Lake is a reservoir that was originally engineered in 1927 as Lake Dallas and served as Dallas' primary water source for 31 years. In the 40s and 50s, the reservoir was expanded and renamed Lewisville Lake. Home to six marinas and three restaurants, Lake Lewisville used for a wide variety of recreational purposes - especially fishing. 

Fishing Powell River

While there are largemouth bass to be caught in Lewisville Lake, white crappie and white bass are also abundant and hybrid striped bass have been stocked over the years to provide yet another sport fish opportunity. If you prefer fishing for cats, you won't be disappointed as the blue and channel catfish fisheries are excellent. Largemouth bass can be found around available structure (timber) in coves or along the shoreline. White bass school in the main lake during summer; follow the gulls. Crappie fishing is excellent under bridges that cross arms of the lake. Hybrids are found around humps and ridges on Hickory Creek and the main lake. Catfishing is good near the old Lake Dallas area.
