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
our new video of the park featuring James Slack,
Chairman of the Lake Enhancement Task Force, and
Jeff Buchanan, B.A.S.S. and FLW pro fisherman.
James and Jeff discuss the park improvements and
give tips on fishing near 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.
