Life is Better at the Lake

Toledo Bend Fireworks 2021

Another spectacular 4th of July firework display is slated to happen at several marinas on Toledo Bend Lake this year.

Toledo Bend Lake is a great place to spend your Fourth of July weekend. The lake is a reservoir located between Louisiana and Texas along the Sabine River. It is the largest man-made lake in Louisiana. The lake extends through the Louisiana counties of Sabine, Selby, and Panola. It is managed by the Sabine River Authority in Burkeville Texas.

Join us for your 4th of July celebration at Toledo Bend Lake this year. The lake offers many amenities and exciting activities for individuals and families looking for unique ways to celebrate this patriotic day together with other Americans.

On the 4th of July, the skies of Toledo Bend Lake light up with a spectacular fireworks display for three nights in a row.

Some of the best places to typically catch firework shows on Toledo Bend include Solans Camp, Logansport and Bailey's Bluff. Here are confirmed shows for 2021:

Toledo Bend Lake July 4th Boat Parade

A good number of boats normally gather around for the annual Fourth of July boat parade on Toledo Bend Lake.

This is a huge event attended by over 300 families. The boats usually gather at the southern end of the lake at the Dam or at Lanan Bay and converge in the middle of the Lake at the Pendleton Bridge sometime around noon.

The Toledo Bend Lake gathering is a spectacular show of boats from the region coming together to celebrate America's day of Independence.

There is also the Operation Dry Water Parade held on the last weekend of June just before the 4th of July holiday.

This is a national weekend of creating awareness about the danger of boating under influence and reducing the number of drug and alcohol-related accidents on the water.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 21)

GOOD. Water slightly stained; 78 degrees; 1.06 feet low. Reports have indicated great success fishing mid-lake about 25 feet using shiners and jigs on brush piles. Black bass remain good staying shallow early then moving above brush in the evenings on wacky rigs, topwater, crankbait, and deeper diving long plastic worms. Striped bass are slow with minimal movement. White bass are good schooling late in the afternoons in the many creeks and caught on spoons. Channel and blue catfish are fair on stinkbait.
