About Us

River Ridge wants to provide you with a place that you will be proud to bring your family and friends. We have the best fishing in East Texas. Many years ago rivers got a bad rap because of the dumping of waste by big companies. Times have changed and we are proud to be located on the Sabine River where the water runs clean and the fish taste great. We hope you will check us out and maybe enjoy some of our paradise.  Looking forward to seeing you soon. We are located about 45 minutes from the casinos in Bossier City, Louisiana. After you catch your fish you might want to try your luck and eat a nice meal.

SABINE RIVER is the upper part of Toledo Bend Reservoir in East Texas.  It is located 12 miles south of Carthage, Texas on Hwy 699 which is about 40 miles south of Longview, Texas and 60 miles west of Shreveport, Louisiana. Several species of bass, crappie, channel, blue and flathead catfish are all in abundance.  Sabine River is ideal for year-round fishing.  River Ridge has been featured on "The Texas Angler" outdoor show for 3 years.  The 6 lb. line class world record white bass was caught by Keith Warren ("The Texas Angler") here in 1996.  Also Ed Snyder, Editor of the Lakecaster Magazine, caught the 2 lb. line class world record white bass here.  It is common to catch white bass that weigh over 3 lbs. Some weigh 4 lbs and better. The Sabine River State Record white crappie was caught here February 26, 2000.
