This fishing lake project was built on a first class working cattle ranch of over 17,000 acres in Central Texas. Situated in the flood plain of the Trinity River, it provided a great location to construct a first rate trophy fishing lake for our client. The clients had a cut off of the Trinity River in their backyard that was used for jet skiing and other water recreation. They had grown frustrated because it was just not a really great fishing location.
The lake building project encompassed just about every aspect of building a world class fishing lake. It was high profile since it was to be constructed directly in front of the ranch owner’s weekend retreat. The lake building project presented site challenges and soil suitability problems which led us to recommend a plastic liner. Just to add a little more to the mix, the lake construction project was also in the path of Hurricanes Gustaf and Ike! The chronological pictures and descriptions explain the lake construction project in greater detail. You can see how the trophy lake was stocked with feeder fish here.
