The Toledo Bend Reservoir is named by Bassmaster as the number 1 bass fishery in the country for 2015.

Director of the Sabine Parish Tourist Commission Linda Curtis-Sparks says this is a great honor and she believes this will lead to an influx of out of state anglers to the reservoir.

Curtis-Sparks says they’ve never dropped below the top 15 in Bassmaster’s top 100 lakes. She says what sets Toledo Bend apart from the rest is the amount of fish that are over 10 pounds and their certification process.

She adds that Toledo Bend is worthy of this honor considering the experience that many fisherman have when it comes to reeling in the big catch every day.
