  • An fine example of ecosystem degradation to benefit a few. Now the worlds biggest cattle drainage trough.
  • A nice drive on the east side of the lake on our way to Lake Worth
  • A beautiful Saturday morning to go fishing!
  • Biggest lake in the state! It's a amazing place for all things outdoor, including fishing and seasonal hunting. Or just sightseeing and bird watching. It's a freshwater lake with miles of marsh lands on the exterior and deep-water water in the interior. Because of its size and has its own microclimate and can be very different out on the Lake compared to on the shore. For the middle like you can use a traditional boat but to get into some of the marsh land areas there's lots of grass and you would need a mud boat or an airboat. Going out on to the lake navigation is very important because it is easy to get turned around out there and because of all the Tall Grass you don't always have a visual point of reference
  • Beautiful peaceful and relaxing.
