Ive been following the construction of the new lake (Bois DArc) closely since I live 20 mins from where it will be. Im really hoping it will be a great bass lake, yet Ive seen multiple comments from numerous people saying it will be another Lake Cooper since its going to be ran by NTMWD. If the water levels dont fluctuate too bad I think it should be okay, what do yall think?? I remember driving by Cooper during a drought many years ago and it was dam near dry. We need another Fork!

I could only extrapolate from Lake Bonham vs Jim Chapman (Cooper) historical data, but Id say that area has a better watershed. With that being said, I dont want to underestimate the growth of Collin/Grayson/Fannin counties

Also saw another proposed lake for north Texas today. Same counties seemed like.

I expect the fishing will be good for at least ten years.



I hate photobucket.

Yeah that one is probably many years away though. I live 15 mins from Ladonia. Does look like it could be a good one as well though!

Until a good drought comes and they suck it dry for DFW.

You pretty much know whats gonna happen. Its going to be a water supply lake to a highly populated area.

The new lake will be continually low except in wet years.

Very low to no flow in Bois D'arc creek except in wet years.

The only reason Lake Bonham maintains reasonable levels is because its very small. One good storm is all it needs.

A 16k acre lake is a different story. Dry years will mean dry boat slips.

NTMWD should also look into the function of the Bonham WWTP. Raw sewage down the creek is common in wet events.

perhaps they need to build the dam 10' higher to hold enough water to offset what the counties will take for the populations each year. YES it will screw up all of those land speculators that bought all the property around the lake. But it about the water, right? Not the speculators.

I think it will be a great fishery and maintain it's water level pretty well "pending they don't suck it dry every summer" Now, they are beginning the other Ralph Hall reservoir on the Sulpher River, as well. This one WILL be like Champman due to poor water shed, bad soil, and the metroplex sucking it dry.

The area it will be located is very low farmland, the golf course in Bonham at the end of the lake floods after a decent amount of rain. I guess we just gotta wait and see..

Maybe the new lake will take stress off of Lavon, Texoma, Hubbard, and Cooper so it will be easier to maintain water levels across the board. I saw Ralph Hall will feed Denton County mostly.

Regarding Bois D'arc Reservoir: anyone know if there is a good place to get a glimpse of the dam construction? I want to see the progress but don't want to drive an hour and a half just to find that the whole area is locked down.

Thanks!
