The City of Lufkin is blessed with some of the best fishing in the state. Lake Sam Rayburn is a short drive from Lufkin's numerous hotels and restaurants and the lake offers world class bass fishing.
Numerous national level bass tournaments are held on the lake each year and Lufkin-Angelina County Chamber of Commerce's Lake Enhancement Task Force has been instrumental in developing new facilities in Cassels-Boykin Park.

Cassels-Boykin County Park has 5 new launch ramps on its south shore in addition to its original 4 ramps on the north shore. The new ramps are part one of an ongoing renovation project that began through the efforts of the Angelina County Chamber of Commerce.

Along with the ramps, there also are 100 new parking spaces, an 80-foot handicapped accessible courtesy pier and improved lighting and signage. All of these amenities will be beneficial to the many fishermen and boaters who access the lake through this park.

In addition, Kurth Lake, now owned by the City of Lufkin and just a few miles north off of Highway 59, offers excellent bass, crappie, and hybrid striper fishing. The City also has two parks with lakes that offer bank fishing.

The links on the sidebar offer current information and maps for our area lakes. Come and enjoy the fishing in Lufkin.

Pictured above at top right is Chip Buchanan and his dad Jeff with a 8.2 oz bass caught minutes from Cassels-Boykin park and his brother Blake is pictured with a nice bass with the 147th Bridge in the background. These fish show that Sam Rayburn is a lake for everyone.
