Pat Mayse Lake is located in Lamar County just 12 miles north of Paris in the Prairie and Lakes Region of Texas.
Despite its remote location, Pat Mayse has everything you might need in the surrounding towns.
With Dallas just over 120 miles away, a weekend trip to or from the city is a breeze.
Named for famous Texas publisher, Pat Mayse, and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the 5,940 acre-lake is used primarily for recreation.
The lake has become increasingly popular due to the peaceful rolling hills, towering pine trees and grasslands with little commercial development around its 67 miles of shoreline.
Pat Mayse provides excellent opportunities for lake activities like boating, swimming, and fishing. Anglers will find largemouth bass, white crappie, sunfish, striped bass and channel and flathead catfish, among other species.
Along with fishing, the land surrounding the lake is managed for public hunting upland game.
Species like whitetail deer, squirrel, bobwhite quail, mourning dove, cottontail rabbit, raccoon and fox can be found in abundance.
Because of the abundant fishing opportunities, Pat Mayse hosts multiple big-name fishing tournaments annually.
Notable fishing tournaments include the "2 of Us - North Region" held in early June. The lake is also the location for the annual "Uncle Jesse's Big Bass" tournament which attracts hundreds of anglers, fans and spectators.
With tranquil views and plentiful activities, Pat Mayse Lake is the perfect destination whether you're looking for a family home or lakefront property.
