The largest and 1st lake of
the Highland Lakes Chain in Central Texas was completed in 1937. For more information on
the history and construction of Buchanan dam visit http://www.lcra.org/water/buchanan.html.
Many people are amazed at
the beautiful surroundings of this lake. Nestled in the Hill Country of Central Texas, a
panoramic view of these hills is available. The upper end of the lake (river inlet of the
Colorado River) has many cliffs, bluffs and waterfalls.
wild pigs and other species of animals and birds can be seen in a trip up the river. The
most notable of the wildlife is the Bald Eagle, which nests during the winter months in
these craigs and bluffs and the sighting of one is a thrill to one and all. Special excursions are made to view and count these
birds. Bald Eagles can occasionally be seen flying over other areas of the lake. Lake Buchanan
is also known for its fishing - catfish, crappie, largemouth bass, white bass and striper. Jim Crawford Guide Service offers guided
striper fishing trips for every level of fisherman or woman! Our trips are great for
familes and kids!
