A favorite of area bass anglers, Toledo Bend Reservoir (Toledo Bend Lake) is a 185,000-acre lake on the texas-Louisiana border, 20 miles west of Many, LA. This 65-mile long lake hosts a wide variety of fish species. Bass, catfish, hybrid striped bass, crappie, white bass, gar, bluegill and a variety of other sunfish all thrive here. Anglers salivate over the 1,200 miles of shoreline which surround some of the best bass tournament water in the country. Boat ramps, marinas, lodging, campgrounds, RV parks, bait stores, restaurants and other amenities are available all around the lake - in both LA and TX. Rental boats offered include canoes and kayaks to pontoons and houseboats. While fishing from shore, a fishing license is required from that state in which you are standing. While fishing from a boat, a license from either state is valid. Local LA fishing guides offer guide trips on Toledo Bend Reservoir. Cover consists primarily of standing timber, boat docks and hydrilla plus a variety of other aquatic vegetation. Fishing for catfish, crappie and bass is good year round, with spring the best time to catch larger stringers. White bass fishing peaks in spring, while summer and fall are prime time for stripers and hybrid striped bass. Spring, summer and fall produce sunfish in good numbers.
