Considered a great fishing destination, Belton Lake is a 12,400-acre lake in the east-central part of the state. These 136 miles of shoreline provide ample opportunity to fish for a wide variety of fish species. Hybrid striped bass, white bass and both largemouth and smallmouth bass reside here in both quantity and quality. Catfish, crappie, sunfish and gar also populate the lake. Much of the lake shoreline is steep and rocky, but there are a few sections accessible for fishing from the bank - especially around the campground areas. Boat ramps, marinas, stores, restaurants, camping and lodging options make this a great place to bring the family. Small boats like canoes and kayaks, as well as bigger fishing and pleasure boats provide access to the winding channels and coves. Rock is the primary cover for fish, as there is little vegetation and no timber in the lake.
