This year’s Fun Fish event was perhaps our best year ever.  It didn’t bring in the numbers that 2014 did, but it was the smoothest and most enjoyable event  by far.  There were close to 2,000 people in attendance and 226 recorded fish were caught.

With the help of LCRA, a single white line of buoys running down the center of Canyon Lake were set on October 27.  The buoys are numbered 1-12 with solar lights attached to the top and are for informational purposes only, not to identify the river channel. One of the main purposes of this system is to assist Fire/EMS and law enforcement in responding to emergencies on the lake. Below are the GPS coordinates for each buoy:

The new sign on River Rd. was recently installed and it looks FABULOUS! This project has been in the works for quite awhile and was funded by WORD of Comal County. Lakescapes built the rock structure and the sign was made by Brushmaster Graphics. For the final touch, Bobby Barclay with Lakescapes donated the materials and manpower for the landscaping.  During the September 19 cleanup event, volunteers showed up to help get those beautiful plants in the ground.  A huge THANK YOU to everyone that made this project possible!

Informational Buoys Coming to Canyon Lake

After hearing concerns from law enforcement and safety agencies who respond to boating accidents, disabled vessels, and medical emergencies on Canyon Lake, WORD has taken on a project to aid boaters in knowing where they are on the lake during the day and at night. The project consists of two parts. First, a line of numbered buoys on the water stretching from west to east in the approximate center of the lake. These buoys are for informational purposes only and do not denote hazards or a clear channel, although they will be placed for the most part on the old river channel which is generally the deepest part of the lake.

The second part of the project is to place large reflective signage at every boat ramp around the lake facing out towards the water. This will aid people in both knowing where they are and finding the ramp they launched from. WORD expects this project to be completed by the first part of June.
