Lake Athens is a great place to enjoy fishing, as well as, watersports. At 1800 acres, there is plenty of room for everyone. It has several coves and bays that make it perfect for kayaking or paddleboarding.
"This lake is known for largemouth bass in the 3- to 8-pound range but has produced a lake record of 14.19 pounds. Sunfishes provide excellent opportunities for fly fishing anglers and catches up to 10 inches in length are not unusual. Crappie are few in number but are usually of good size. White bass commonly reach 16-18 inches." Texas Parks and Wildlife
