As part of our daily effort to bring you the newest and best charts available, we have updated more lakes in the U.S. with data from multibeam surveys. Now, you will have a better view of submerged structures and lake contours, including previously unmapped areas.
Toledo Bend is connected to the Sabine River and sandwiched between East Texas and Louisiana. The lake is 65 miles by 10 miles wide and is considered to be the largest lake in the South. It is also the fifth largest man-made reservoir in the U.S.
Fishing the Toledo
Toledo Bend is an important resource for the area. Not only does it produce hydroelectric power, but it is also a major water source for both Texas and Louisiana. With 1,200 miles of shoreline and 185,000 acres of lake area, Toledo Bend attracts a wide variety of recreational activities. These include swimming, boating, picnicking, fishing, camping, hunting, and sightseeing.
The lake is a popular spot for fishing and hosts a number of fishing tournaments throughout the year. The most notable professional tournament is sponsored by FLW (Fishing League Worldwide).
Toledo Bend is home to plenty of fish species. There are four species of bass including white and striped bass, Black and White Crappie, eight species of catfish, and twelve species of sunfish. Others include perch, pickerel, eel and alligator gar.
Shallow draft boats are recommended in order to get to those spots full of debris and flooded timber. With the new updates, boaters can feel more confident navigating Toledo Bend. The updated cartography clearly shows boat lanes and more accurate details marked around the shorelines and shallow areas.
