Lake Activities in Granbury
Beautiful Lake Granbury sits right in the heart of Granbury. Lake Granbury is located in northern Texas, and it is one of the three lakes that was formed by damming the Brazos River. Grab your pole and go fishing at one of the many public fishing piers, or pitch a tent at one of the many camping areas.
Make it a lake day on a boat, kayak, jet ski or paddleboard! The fun never stops on Lake Granbury. Additionally, on the City Beach Park, you can rent things such as kayaks, paddleboards or bikes to tour the sights in Granbury.

Visit Granbury is challenging our Granbury community, civic organizations, charitable organizations, and brave individuals to help us kick-off the Winter Guest season by jumping into the frigid waters of Lake Granbury on Saturday, January 4th at City Beach Park. This is the first-ever Lake Granbury Goosebump Jump event!
Grab your poles and come down to catch the fish of Lake Granbury!
Striped bass fishing can be very good on this long, sinuous reservoir. Downrigging jigs and crankbaits, as well as drifting live shad, can be very effective. The mid-lower lake seems to be best. Largemouth bass fishing can be excellent around any of the 1000-plus boat docks and piers. Crankbaits, jigs, and worms are top bets. Catfishing is good throughout the reservoir. The stained water and abundant timber along the Brazos River channel make for excellent trotlining. Crappie can be caught using live minnows fished around docks, submerged brush, and bridge pilings. White bass are best during the spring in the river above the lake. Small jigs and spinners work best. Sunfish can be caught using live worms or crickets fished around docks, especially in early summer.
Public Boat Ramps, Marinas and Watersport Rentals
The City Boat Ramp located on the Highway 377 Bridge is just one of many spots for you to start your adventure on Lake Granbury. This particular ramp is open year-round, has no fee, and can launch up to three boats simultaneously.
The Brazos River Authority maintains additional boat ramps at Thorp Spring, Hunter Park, Rough Creek Park and DeCordova Bend Park.
If you want to be close to the City Beach, you can launch from there, too, at a ramp that is also maintained by the City. Additionally, rent boats and other fun water sport gear from Lake Granbury Marina (Stumpy's) or Rockin' S!
