Lake LBJ of the Texas Highland Chain of Lakes
Lake Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) is part of the Texas Highland Lakes chain, which includes a total of seven reservoirs and dams along the Colorado River in Central Texas. Other reservoirs along the Colorado River include Lake Marble Falls, Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, Lake Travis, Lake Austin, and Lady Bird Lake (formerly Town Lake).
Lake LBJ (originally called Lake Granite Shoals) was formed in 1950 with the construction of the Granite Shoals Dam, later renamed Wirtz Dam. Aside from the many homes located along the shores of the lake, the lake itself is a popular place for fishing and has been stocked with several different species, including largemouth bass, crappie, catfish, and white bass. The lake is also a popular spot for enjoying a variety of water recreational activities like jet-skiing, swimming and boating due to the lake's constant water level. In addition to Horseshoe Bay, the towns of Highland Haven, Sunrise Beach, Granite Shoals, and Kingsland are all located on Lake LBJ.
