Caddo Lake Dam was originally constructed as a feature of the Cypress Bayou and Waterway Navigation Project. The Cypress Bayou and Waterway Navigation Project runs between Jefferson, Texas and Shreveport, Louisiana. The current dam was constructed as a modification to provide for water supply and recreation. Caddo Lake Dam was completed in June 1971. The Caddo Lake dam is 1,225 feet long with a height of 40 feet at 176.0 mean sea level. There are five major features of this project: an earth fill dam, a concrete spillway, an earth fill dike, a concrete control structure, as well as an outlet channel. The Recreation opportunities for visitors at Caddo Lake are numerous thanks to the many privately owned recreational businesses such as restaurants, site seeing tours, and marinas. Additionally several Louisiana parishes operate parks on the lake as well as the State of Texas. The Corps of Engineers operates a day use recreation area located just below Caddo Lake Dam near the outlet channel. [Caddo Lake. www.nwk.usace.army.mil, 01/26/2008]

Caddo Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
