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]

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today.
