If you love to fish, your next RV vacation should be to Texas. More than one hundred lakes tempt anglers to drop their hooks in the Lone Star State. Traveling there by motorhome makes the trip easy, with comfortable beds and a well-stocked kitchen to greet you when you come in off the lake.
Freshwater fisherman will find plenty of sport chasing black bass, walleye, crappie and catfish, just to name a few of the species abundant in Texas lakes. Lake Arrowhead near Wichita Falls is famous for its white crappie population. In the same region, Lake Meredith offers walleye enthusiasts a run for their money. An abundance of RV campsites at both parks makes setting up the fishing camp simple.
In the Piney Woods area of East Texas, lakes like Sam Rayburn, Houston County and Toledo Bend are nationally known for black bass, crappie and catfish. World famous fishing tournaments fill this region's calendar, too, so be sure to sign up if you like your fishing competitive.
Roll your motorhome west to the Lakes Region of Texas, home to more than twenty freshwater fishing lakes. You'll find beautiful Lake Texoma right on the Oklahoma border, promising crappie, bass, catfish and bluegill galore as well as an abundance of privately run and US Corps of Engineer RV campgrounds.
Do not miss your chance to go fly fishing along the Texas Gulf Coast, either. Fly fishing enthusiasts flock each year to Sabine Lake along the Louisiana border, where trout of record size test their skills annually. Trout fishing in this region is legendary, so plan to camp all along the coastline and visit several lakes and estuaries on your trip.
No Texas freshwater fishing trip would be complete without a visit to the South Texas lakes, where striped bass and redfish reign supreme. Try Calaveras, Braunig or Choke Canyon for the ultimate South Texas fishing expedition.
Freshwater fishing is as American as the Fourth of July, and there's no better place to try your hand than Texas. Hook up your boat to a great motorhome and head down the road to Texas. The fish are biting and an adventure for the record books awaits.
