More Information on Lake Conroe

Lake Conroe was built in the early 70’s and has been appropriately advertised as Houston’s playground. Conveniently located about an hour north of Houston slightly west of I-45, Lake Conroe has been a popular area for tourists, weekenders and those who wish to enjoy lake living.

Lake Conroe covers approximately 22,000 acres. Much of the shoreline in the southern portion of the reservoir has been developed with numerous waterfront homes nestled on the water’s edge. Much of the northern portion remains undeveloped as it is located in the Sam Houston National Forest.

While the lake serves an important role as a reserve supply of water for the City of Houston, it also serves many of us as a source of recreation, whether for fishing, boating or simply enjoying a relaxing sunset over the water’s edge.

Many people think of Lake Conroe in terms of water sports like skiing or just boating on the lake on a weekend afternoon. Lake Conroe has also been a favorite for fishermen since it was first built. Predominant species of fish in Lake Conroe include Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Channel Catfish and White and Hybrid Striped Bass. It is interesting to note that some very large fish have been caught in Lake Conroe. For example, an 86 lb flathead catfish was caught on 1/14/90, a 55 lb blue catfish on 6/16/83 and a 15 lb largemouth bass on 3/4/97.
