Lewisville Lake Fishing Barge

The Lewisville Lake Fishing Barge was opened in 1958 and was one of the most modern and largest in Texas. It has since been enlarged from the picture shown below and is still on the Lake in its original spot. If you visit expect to step back in time to when people fished for sustenance as well as recreation.There is a definite old school vibe to place with hard-core fisherman and women, families, many old snapshots of folks with their prized catches, and the lingering odor or thousands of cigarettes smoked combined with fish. Utterly independent of current popular culture and a real throwback. I’m hoping that its never replaced with something “nicer”. ~Chuck
