Lake LBJ

Lake LBJ 1

Lake LBJ is a reservoir on the Colorado River in the Texas Hill Country. The lake was formed in 1950 by the construction of Granite Shoals Dam by the LCRA. The lake is part of The Highland Lakes, which is a chain of seven lakes from Lake Buchanan to Lake Austin. Lake LBJ is 21 miles long and it’s largely popular due to its constant level which provides ideal conditions for boating, water-skiing, jet-skiing and other water sports. The lake is also an ideal place to go fishing; it is stocked with several species of fish including largemouth bass, white bass, catfish, and crappie.

Lake LBJ was named after President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1965; its original name was Lake Granite Shoals. In addition to his work to enact the Rural Electrification Act that formed the basis for building the Highland Lakes, President Johnson owned a ranch on the lake and while he was both President and Vice President he entertained many national and foreign leaders.
