Lake Athens Real Estate

Lake Athens

Located just 5 miles to the east of Athens, this 1799 acre spring fed public lake is the primary municipal water supply for the City of Athens.  Best known for its large mouth bass in the 3-8 pound range, fly fishermen will tell you it's also home to some of the finest red-ear sunfish in Texas.  Although motor boats longer than 30' and pontoons wider than 14' aren't allowed, the main body of the lake is perfect for skiing.  Kayak and paddle boats, available for rent at the marina, are frequently seen gliding along the shore line.

Potential property owners can view the TPWD 2017 Fisheries Management Survey Report here to get the details on fish populations, as well as the AMWA Rules and Regulations Concerning the Quality of Water and Use and Enjoyment of Lake Athens here for information on boat house/dock/pier requirements.
