Lone Star Lake

This tranquil and remote little lake is a true fisherman’s gem located in the heart of Paris county of northeastern Texas. Situated in the small green plain between the two long and forking branches of the Sulphur River that meanders across the state, Lone Star Lake is your own private spot for recreational activities, and fishing is top of the list! That’s because despite the lake’s size, its relatively shallow waters are inhabited by nearly a dozen of different fish species like Bluegill, Redear Sunfish, Smallmouth Buffalo and Spotted Bass just to name a few… And with Texan spring in the air, it is just the perfect time to spend the days out fishing in fulfilling solitude among the luscious green of late spring trees. No doubt, Lone Star Lake will be your own private paradise for sharpening those angling skills in a naturally relaxing atmosphere of idyllic beauty and harmony. Just feel the wind from the cornfields so gentle and warm against your skin, caressing the senses with a reminder that summer is almost here…

Welcome to this little piece of Heaven you can call your own! A lovely wooden house on the bank of Lone Star Lake, hidden in a remote rural area of Paris county, Texas. Only a few decades ago Lone Star Lake was a nameless little pond amidst picturesque Texan wilderness. Owing to the efforts of local anglers, the pond was turned into a beautiful lake, inhabited by many fish species like White Crappie, Golden Shiner, Redear Sunfish, Bluegill and Blacktail Shiner. Any angler dreams of living in a place like this and now this dream is turning real! So grab your fishing rod and walk down the gradually sloping bank of the lake’s clear waters to rest your sight on the idyllic rural view of the opposite shore with its distant hills and cornfields. Truly, there’s no place like home...the place you’ll always want to go back to.

Moving further west along the lovely northern bank of Lone Star Lake, you’ll discover an old wooden bridge that’ll take you to the opposite bank. Here, the lake is roughly divided by the bridge in two as the open space of the sun-filled meadow gives way to the shady thickets and the clear main waters flow into a small shallow area of the lake densely grown with lily pads and water vegetation. Enjoy fishing on the wooden bridge or head over to the sedge-grown shore - either way, try your luck at catching Spotted Bass, Grass Pickerel, Bluegill or Green Sunfish in the shallow waters of this swampy reservoir.

After crossing the narrow bridge, old wood crackling under the feet with every step of the way, the your will find yourself exploring Lone Star Lake’s southern bank. Walk further east along the gradually sloping shore to find some marvelous fishing spots by the earthen dam, that is both a border marking the lake’s boundaries and a road that meanders through the Texas landscape to other distant places. Walk the soft green grass to discover just the right fishing spot that grants access to the deepest part of the lake, just the perfect hideout for Smallmouth Buffalo or a Young Channel Catfish. Catch countless Bluegill or Redear Sunfish and enjoy the heartwarming view of your lovely house surrounded by bushy green trees from across the lake...
