Facts About Lake Conroe
The Lake Conroe Area is a beautiful oasis in the Heart of East Texas! Lake Conroe is a man-made lake and was completed January 1973 and was filled on October 31, 1973. The lake was built as a joint project between the City of Houston, the Texas Water Development Board, and the San Jacinto River Authority as an alternative water supply for the city of Houston, TX.
A seven-year drought in the 1950s in the region, lead to a five-year construction plan that began in 1968 to prevent a repeat of the water shortages experienced during the drought. The maximun depth of Lake Conroe is stated at 75 feet and the average depth is 20 feet. Lake Conroe is fed by the West Fork of the San Jacinto River with its headwaters located about 17 miles west of Huntsville, Texas.
Lake Conroe sport fishes include; White Crappie, and Black Crappie, Blue Catfish, Channel Catfish, Largemouth Bass, White Bass and Hybrid Striped Bass. Florida Largemouth Bass and Hybrid Striped Bass have been stocked into the lake in years past. We have even seen some lake otters in the lake at times.
