Boasting over 60 miles of shoreline, Joe Pool Lake is a 7,500-acre lake in the Dallas area, at Cedar Hill, TX. Hydrilla and other aquatic vegetation are abundant as well as brush, timber and man-made fish habitat. While bass are the most popular species here, the lake is also home to catfish, crappie, sunfish and white bass. For those who prefer to fish from the bank there are several parks on the water, as well as numerous places around the lake with walk-in access to the shoreline. Some of these access options are a good choice to portage a canoe or kayak. Several public boat launch ramps facilitate boat launching of pontoons, ski boats, pleasure boats and a wide variety of fishing boats and bass boats. On or around the lake are most amenities to meet your boating, camping and fishing needs on Joe Pool Reservoir.
