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.
