Lake Amistad, Del Rio
Located just outside of Del Rio on HWY 90, this 67,000 acre lake is one of the biggest draws to Del Rio, and this part of Texas. Amistad Recreation Area attracts people internationally not just for boating and houseboating, but also camping, waterskiing and wakeboarding, nature hikes, and especially fishing. The lake holds several variations of bass, catfish, sunfish, and gar, not to mention various other fish species. Lake Amistad is known as one of the best bass lakes in the country; with warm weather nine months out of the year, Amistad can be fished when other lakes have little to offer. Tournaments are held here several times a year, with anglers catching bass weighing eight pounds and more on a regular basis.
