Cedar-Creek-Lake is a reservoir located in Henderson and Kaufman Counties in east-central Texas. It's the fourth largest lake in the state of Texas. Cedar Creek Lake is about 60 miles southeast of the city of Dallas, and is popular with what are called "weekenders" from the Dallas/Forth Worth area. Some of the smaller towns near Cedar Creek Lake include Athens, Kemp, Mabank, Gun Barrel City, Payne Springs, Enchanted Oaks, Star Harbor, Trinidad, Tool and Seven Points. The lake has 320 miles of shoreline and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department maintains three islands in the lake, which total 160 acres. The islands are a designated Wildlife Management Area for aquatic birds. Fishing is especially popular at Cedar Creek Lake. Species of fish in the lake include blue catfish, channel catfish, flathead catfish, largemouth bass, white bass, hybrid striped bass and crappie. The best place for catching largemouth bass is in the southern portion of the lake in the large coves and inlets. The lakes record largemouth bass weighed in at 14.65 pounds. Other things to do at Cedar Creek Lake include boating, camping, kayaking, paddle boating, hiking and picnicking. The nearby town of Athens offers a Farmer's Market every Saturday, May through October. You'll also find plenty of shops, boutiques, art galleries, theater and restaurants of all kinds in the area.
