Is there any news on the future of this Texas lake ? There seemed to be a lot of discussion mid year about the possibility of the Parks closing & sell off of the property around the lake. I remember October being the critical month for decisions ? Anyone heard anything ?

The state purchasing it would be absolutely great but guessing from the economic state of the TPWD and their inability to pay for running all the parks now I can’t imagine purchasing a 2000 acre lake and all the surrounding land would be doable even if available.

They could negotiate a forever lease. States do that pretty often to preserve parks.

Why would Luminant do agree to that when they are trying to sell the land?

I’ve never fished that lake. I may give it a try this year. Is the state park the only boat ramp?

How so? They want to sell all the land. If they signed a forever lease. How would that affect them trying to sell to an investor wanting to make a private development? I just don't see any upside for Luminat
