The Catfish Capital of Texas

Catfish Capital

In 2001, the Texas Legislature declared West Tawakoni the "Catfish Capital of Texas."
West Tawakoni is the “Catfish Capital” of Texas for a good reason. We are located on the west side of Lake Tawakoni which boasts some of the biggest blue cats in the south, and has on more than one occasion produced multiple 5 fish stringers over 200lbs! Lake Tawakoni boasts 225 miles of shoreline, with a large abundance of Crappie, Black Bass, Sand Bass, Striped Bass, Hybrid Bass which of course help feed its “MONSTER” Catfish.

A Note From Our Mayor

WELCOME TO THE CITY OF WEST TAWAKONI WEB SITE 

We are glad to have you visit our community. West Tawakoni is surrounded on three sides by Lake Tawakoni. We pride ourselves as a recreational area for visitors and as home to many folks who work in Dallas, Mesquite, Garland and other suburbs of the Metroplex. We are in south Hunt County and offer the best of "small town living". We are part of Quinlan Independent School District, offering excellent educational opportunities. 

Our City Park offers thousands of feet of shoreline to offer you a great camping, fishing, boating and play area. You can bring you own camper or rent one of ours to get the full benefit of camping and enjoying the outdoors. We have pavilions available to rent for your picnics and family outings.

Hwy 276 separates the North part of town from the South. Lake Tawakoni holds both State and National records for catfish, however it is also home to ample stripers, crappie and hybrids. Several RV parks afford rental spaces for more permanent visitors.

Greenville is 20 miles to our North. Dallas is 45 miles to our West. Terrell is 20 miles to our South. So whatever your needs or whatever your destination. take time to visit West Tawakoni. We will be waiting for you.

Thank you,

Calvin Travers

KWTB Yard of Month

Contest Starts in April

Keep West Tawakoni Beautiful will kick off its 2015 Yard of the Month competition in April, selecting one “Yard of the Month” monthly through September.

KWTB Steering Committee Chair Kathie Magers said winners of the competition each month once again will receive $25 gift certificates from Steve’s Nursery on Hwy. 34 in Cash.

Yards chosen must be well-maintained, have a pleasing overall appearance and have some landscaping elements in addition to plant materials and be free of trash and/or yard waste and inappropriate items.

Magers said that because of the area’s ongoing drought and current severe water use restrictions, they also will put emphasis on yards that use drought-tolerant or native plants and yard covers that do well without regular watering or can survive on rain water alone. The use of water-saving elements such as rain water collection systems, also will be considered.

The contest is open to all customers in the City of West Tawakoni Water System service area.

To nominate your home or that of someone else, either call Dwayne Hall at 903-447-2285, send an email to him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or contact one of the steering committee members.
