Lake Fork Reservoir is one of the premier trophy bass fishing lakes in the world, and serves as a reservoir for Dallas and its suburbs. It holds 15 of the top 20 Texas State Record Largemouth Bass. It was impounded in 1980, and reached is normal pool surface elevation of 403.0 feet above mean sea level in 1985. It consists of 27,690 acres, situated in Wood and Rains County in Northeast Texas, between the towns of Quitman, Alba, Emory, and Yantis, Texas. It offers 315 miles of shoreline, and has a drainage area of 493 square miles. The dam is 12,410 feet in length and impounds Lake Fork Creek, a tributary of the Sabine River, and other major creeks are Big Caney and Little Caney.
Lake Fork Reservoir was created as a textbook fishery, including initial stockings before the lake filled. Lake Fork Reservoir was established, by the Texas Parks and Wildlife, as a premier bass fishing lake, with 732,514 Florida Black Bass being stocked from 1979 through 1987. Lake Fork Reservoir offers excellent fish habitat with 80% standing timber left intact, and hydrilla, milfoil, and duckweed being the predominant vegetation. Other species of fish include Catfish, Black and White Crappie, Sunfish, and Bluegill. The predominant food source for the larger fish is Shad, Minnows, and Crawfish. The boat lanes cut trough the timber before the lake reached pool level and the low bridges make a perfect fisherman's lake.

Steamboat Shores is a great place to spend the weekend or spend a lifetime.
