Eagle-Mountain-Lake is a man-made, freshwater reservoir located in North Central Texas. The lake was created by damming the West Fork of the Trinity River and sits below Lake Bridgeport and above Lake Worth. Eagle Mountain Lake dam was constructed 1932. In 1965, the District voters (Tarrant Regional Water District) approved a bond issue to allow the District to install improved controlled spillways. Today, it's a popular recreational lake used for boating, fishing and other water sports such as wake boarding, water skiing, and kayaking. Eagle Mountain Marina is a service facility featuring wet slips, dry slips, trailer storage, a stocked ship store, gas dock, and 24-hour security. The Eagle Mountain Marina also includes boat rentals. Eagle Mountain Lake is also a very nice place for non-water related activities. It has picnic areas, walking trails, camp grounds, and restaurants. The surface area of Eagle Mountain Lake is 8,738 acres with a maximum depth of 47 feet. Normal clarity in the lake stained in the upper end and clear in the lower end, near the dam.

Eagle Mountain Lake Weather & Climate

North Texas , in the Prairie and Northern Plains Region, the climate is semi-arid and prone to drought. Annual rainfall is between 16 and 32 inches (810 mm). During the summer, this area of state sees the most clear and sunny days. On most winter nights, temperatures fall below the freezing mark, or 32 F (0 C). The wettest months of the year are April and May. Tornadoes are common, caused by the convergence of westerly and southerly prevailing winds during the late spring, making the region part of Tornado Alley. Poor land management, drought, and high wind speeds cause large dust storms. Improved land-management practices have improved dust storms somewhat in recent years. The panhandle region, farthest from the Gulf of Mexico, experiences colder winters than the other regions of Texas.
