Most known for its largemouth bass tournament fishing, the reservoir also supports excellent populations of channel catfish, sunfish, and white bass. There are two public boat ramp with camping areas, and four private camping & recreational areas. The Texas Parks and Wildlife website has detailed information and demographics about Lake Leon.

Eastland Lake
   The lake is located north-west of downtown on FM 3101, and offers an excellent golfing experience at Lakeside Country Club. There is one unimproved (gravel) boat launch area near the bridge and several angler access points, including one at the dam. At 100 acres, it has plenty of water to support a variety of good sport fish populations, including largemouth bass, crappie, catfish and white bass. There is a good, under-fished population of largemouth bass in this lake. The lake record is 6.54 pounds, caught in March 2004. Some nice crappie are present as well.
