Brady Lake, Brady Texas

Brady Creek Reservoir was impounded in 1963 for flood control.  Also known as Brady Reservoir and more commonly as Brady Lake it covers 2,020 acres with 25 miles of shoreline.  Recreation activities focus on boating and fishing.  Water enthusiasts will find limited vegetation although somewhat murky waters.  The lake is stocked with Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish and Crappie.  The full service lake store is where you can purchase bait before you head out onto the lake or perhaps the enclosed marina to fish.  Brady Lake Park hugging the shores of Brady Lake features both RV and primitive camping, cabana rentals, a large group pavilion, picnic areas along with restrooms including showers.  The maximum depth of the water in Brady Lake has been recorded at 48 feet, however, Brady Lake, as well as many Texas Lakes has been affected by the ongoing drought in Texas and in the last 3 years has fallen 9 feet.  Some of the public boat ramps have been closed and most of the private boat docks now sit on rock and sand due to the low water levels.  Camping and fishing are still popular summer past times here at Brady Lake even with the low water levels so pack up your gear and your family and come out and enjoy yourself at Brady Lake for a weekend or more.  Brady Lake is just west of downtown Brady, Texas.  The dam and the lake are managed by the City of Brady, Texas.  Contact the Brady Lake Store for more information.  325-597-1823
