Lake Ray Roberts Lake
Professional Guide Fishing at it's best!



We will be fishing for Largemouth Bass, White Bass and Crappie on Lake Ray Roberts.

  Ray Roberts Lake is a 29,350-acre body of water that was built by the Corps of Engineers. It opened to the public in January of 1990. The dam was built on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, a few miles northeast of Denton, Texas. The lake is easily accessed via State Highway 455, which crosses the dam as it runs east and west. Highway 455 can be reached by way of Interstate 35 from the west or State Highway 377 from the east. The lake, which is approximately a one hour drive from the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, is the result of many acres of timber and farm land that were flooded in Denton, Grayson and Cooke counties after it was impounded.
  In preparation for flooding of the land, standing timber was pushed down in areas near the dam. A lot of this timber was then pushed into more than 50 piles. The wood piles were then cabled into place to serve as fish attractors and have thus provided excellent fishing for many species since they were inundated. Timber was left standing in the upper portions of the lake as well and provide fish with many acres of natural cover. Ray Roberts offers fishermen a variety of options. The lake holds good populations of largemouth bass, crappie, white bass, and catfish.
