Having a Reely Good Day on Lake Ray Roberts
In Cooke County, Texas
No, no, you didn’t read that wrong. And yes, I spelled that right. How so, you ask… Well, the reason is that we are going to talk about Lake Ray Roberts in North Texas.
One such way to enjoy Lake Ray Roberts is by fishing. Whether you and the kiddos load up early in the morning, or you and some friends climb aboard a guided tour.
Making Memories on Lake Ray Roberts
First of all, fond childhood memories are created waking before the sun to find that best fishing spot. Filling your thermos with coffee (hot cocoa for the kiddos) and tossing some fruit and snacks into a lunch pail for later. Piling in the truck and driving to the store for some worms and/or minnows.
Then arriving at that best spot on the bank and tossing a line in. Unfolding some chairs and taking a seat as the bobbers float and the sun peaks over the horizon. Or, perhaps, you prefer fishing from inside a small boat. Out in the middle of the lake finding that school of fish huddled in their hiding spot. Nothing but the sound of the boat gently tapping the water as the waves come and go.
Of course, fast forward to Summer and Lake Ray Roberts is a place to take the family and cool off. There is plenty of space to have a family picnic or cookout. While the burgers cook, watch the kids splash in the water off of the shore which looks just like the beach. Off in the distance some passing sail boats may catch your attention. The sounds of laughter, chatter, splashing and jet skis are all part of a North Texas summer on Lake Ray Roberts.
Lake Ray Roberts Nature
Indeed Lake Ray Roberts is also the place for those who are just looking for a relaxing nature stroll. Leash up the dog(s) and lace up those walking or running shoes. Enjoy strolling along the trails observing the sights and sounds of the season. Thick, lush trees and foliage clothe the trees and landscape in the spring and summer. From the trees along the path you may see an Indigo Buntings, the Scissor-tailed flycatcher or a Western Kingbird. Fall brings with it gorgeous leaves of red and orange. Decorating the drab, leafless trees during the cold season are cedar waxwings, goldfinches, spotted sandpipers, yellow-bellied sapsuckers, winter wrens, to name a few. With all of this talk about birds, let’s not forget the tall, long-legged egrets.
Certainly, Lake Ray Roberts has something to offer every member of the family each season of the year. What will you do on your next visit?
