Cedar Creek Reservoir is located southeast of Dallas, Texas. It is built on Cedar Creek, which flows into the Trinity River.
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department maintains three islands that are used for a Wildlife Management Area for aquatic birds. The lake is owned by the Tarrant Regional Water District, and supplies water to neighboring cities. Construction of the lake began in 1961 and was completed in 1965. Along with being a wildlife area, the lake serves as a popular recreational destination as well with activities including fishing. The predominant fish species present in the lake are Blue catfish, Flathead catfish, Channel catfish, Largemouth bass, Hybrid striped bass, White bass, and Crappie. Fishing on the lake tends to be good in the spring and into summer.
