Trinity Lake offers 145 miles of tree-lined shoreline. There are a variety of coves and arms perfect for fishing or a quiet picnic on the water. The main body of the lake has plenty of room for water sports like wakeboarding or tubing. There are multiple launch ramps around the lake that make getting in and out a breeze. Fishing includes rainbow trout, largemouth bass, and smallmouth bass, and is best in the spring and fall, though the cooler water temperatures will help you catch fish year-round.
