Fishing is deeply rooted in Texas culture so our goal was to establish a viable urban fishing lake that provides an additional benefit to the Towne Lake community from the very beginning
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 8, 2008
Caldwell Companies announced today that the lake project at their 2,400-acre development, Towne Lake, is underway with the 30-acre first phase of the lake ready to fill. Construction will occur in several phases as development continues, culminating in a central water feature of over 300 acres, complete with recreational areas and fishing holes. Caldwell Companies estimates that the first phase of the project will be complete this fall.
While most new water properties need time for fish stock to develop, the centerpiece of the Towne Lake community will have fully accessible fishing holes from day one. Caldwell Companies hired Lake Management Services, L.P. to provide aquatic habitat and freshwater fishery management services. During the first build-out phase, Mac McCune president, Lake Management Services, installed artificial fish habitats, hiding structures, and spawning beds to provide the fish a place to grow as the construction progresses. Once the feature is fully filled and stocked, the large-mouth bass, bluegill sunfish, and channel catfish will immediately have a viable habitat, creating fishable destinations that are immediately usable for all Towne Lake residents. Caldwell Companies has ensured that there will be many areas to catch fish throughout Towne Lake.
"Fishing is deeply rooted in Texas culture so our goal was to establish a viable urban fishing lake that provides an additional benefit to the Towne Lake community from the very beginning," said McCune. "The entire concept of Towne Lake is unique to the greater Houston region and I'm very excited to be a part of something that is so distinctive."
"Towne Lake offers more than just aesthetics for those that live by the water and use the amenity for boating. It gives the community residents the ability to take advantage of fishing immediately," explained Randy Young, director of operations, residential development, Caldwell Companies. "Our plans are to make this a freshwater fishery on par with the best fishing lakes in the state of Texas, as well as added relaxation and entertainment for the residents of Towne Lake. Residents will no longer need a second home to enjoy fishing and lake recreation. At Towne Lake, they will have 300-acres of lake to enjoy just beyond their front door."
Young said that sales at Towne Lake are brisk with a waiting list for lakefront lots and reservations already made for other sections of the development. For more information about Towne Lake, visit online or call (281) 256-2772.
