Project 365 Day 66 - Amistad Reservoir

Amistad Reservoir

The lake is so big it is hard to get much of it in a picture. It has more than 850 miles of shoreline, 540 of which are in Texas. The US/Mexicn border follows the bed of the Rio Grande through the lake. Summer is definitely the busy season for the lake with motorboats, sailboats, and houseboats as early as the end of February. We're looking forward to seeing the sailboarders when the weather warms up.

ooo, very nice. Do you guys like to go fishing?

Karen, unfortunately neither of us fish. I wish we did. This is supposed to be one of the top fishing lakes in the country. They have 3 or 4 of the big tournaments here each year. Almost everyone who comes here, comes to fish.
