Learn about what's going on at the house and at Cedar Creek Lake

Cedar Creek Lake

From Wikipedia:

Cedar Creek Reservoir is a reservoir located in Henderson and Kaufman Counties, Texas (USA), 60 miles (97 km) southeast of Dallas. It is built on Cedar Creek, which flows into the Trinity River. Floodwaters are discharged through a gated spillway into a discharge channel that connects to the Trinity River.

The predominant fish species of Cedar Creek Lake are Blue catfish, Channel catfish, Flathead catfish, Largemouth bass, White bass, Hybrid striped bass, and Crappie. The best fishing areas for Largemouth bass are in the southern portion of the lake, where the water is clearer, especially the southern third of the lake in the large coves and inlets. The lake’s record Largemouth bass weighed 14.65 pounds (6.52 kg). Catfish can be found everywhere, with more Blues than Channels. Fishing is particularly good in the spring and into summer. Due to the many smaller streams, creeks, and run-offs flowing into the lake, running jug lines in the channels of the many coves using goldfish, shad, and small sunfish makes for very good Blue catfish and Flathead (Yellow) catfish fishing grounds.

Here is a video we shot flying in over our cove towards the house. Enjoy!

Summer is coming!

It’s time to plan your summer vacations, and what is nicer than a week or a weekend at the lake with family and friends?

Perhaps go fishing, water skiing, tubing or something else? If you bring your own boat, we have a dock for you to use. You can also rent boats at several locations around the lake if you so wish.
