I have recently had a family member move to the Waxahachie area and, prior to the winter storm, we were planning on a kayaking trip to fish Waxahachie Lake. I noticed that the first thing that popped up when I search Waxahachie Lake was “alligators in Waxahachie lake”.

Does Waxahachie Lake have ALLIGATORS???

There is not many lakes in Texas that do not have gators. Maybe some lakes in the panhandle or far west Texas.

Gators are native to all the trinity river and its tributaries.

Here's one found in Rowlett creek in plano

Personally I hate gators. If you kill one and get a ticket, ask for a jury trial. maybe someone like me will be on the jury, as I will set you free. For my taste, they could exterminate the species.

I know you took biology in school and know that exterminating gators would create other issues. If you don't like them, leave them alone. Really not rocket science

I’ve never seen one on Waxahachie. But, I’ve never really looked for one. I have been fishing the lake for the last 30+ years. It does have some backwater areas that most don’t frequent, so maybe there is a place where they’d feel comfortable. If I had to guess, I’d say halfway to I35, up the creek, to the left, before the railroad bridge. That area LOOKS like gator stuff. I know it’s full of snakes and some seriously good top water fish during spring and summer.

In fact...in all my 50years of fishing, I’ve never seen a wild gator in a lake in Texas. I have seen one in a canal outside of Galveston. The only other I have seen in the wild were way up lake on Ross Barnett in Mississippi. A BUNCH in 5 days of fishing.

I've never seen a gator in Waxahachie Lake! Although they did find a shark carcass found on the shore! https://www.waxahachietx.com/article/20130620/News/306209962

After having lived for over ten years in south and central Louisiana , seeing gators was commonplace . Unless close to their nest, they normally depart from you quickly. They make great tableware , in gumbo , fried or from the grill.
