Lake Austin is one part of the chain of the Highland Lakes, which runs through Central Texas. Due to its long length and relatively narrow width, the lake looks more like a river than a lake. It is in fact a river with a dam at each end. The history of the Highland Lakes system dates back to the 1930’s and 1940’s when it was formed for electrical power generation and flood control as well as for recreation. Today, fishermen continue to enjoy catching largemouth bass in the lake, while boating and wakeboarding are popular water sports. With its water source coming from the bottom of Lake Travis, the lake’s water is typically cooler than Lake Travis. Nonetheless, with the proper gear, the lake offers year-round opportunities for outdoor fun. Given all that the area has to offer, it is little surprise that so many are interested in calling Lake Austin their home. If you would like to set an appointment to view homes on Lake Austin please contact one of our Austin real estate agents and we would be happy to help!
