Lake McQueeney

Lake McQueeney is a reservoir on the Guadalupe River located 5 miles west of the town of Seguin in Guadalupe County, Texas, USA.

The reservoir was formed in 1928 by the construction of a dam to provide hydroelectric power to the area. Management of the dam and lake was assumed by the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority on May 1, 1963.

The lake's prominent feature is Treasure Island, a residential area that has been subjected to major flooding in 1972, 1998, and 2002. Most of the lake is approximately 10 feet (3 m) deep, with deeper sections along the center channel of the river.

Lake McQueeney is a venue for outdoor recreation, including fishing, boating, and swimming, and is maintained at a constant level year round.

Lake McQueeney has been stocked with species of fish intended to improve the utility of the reservoir for recreational fishing. Fish present in Lake McQueeney include catfish, white crappie, sunfish, spotted bass, and largemouth bass. Vegetation in the lake includes cattail, pondweed, American lotus, spatterdock, rushes.

Introduced exotics such as water hyacinth, water lettuce, and hydrilla have caused access problems in the past. Although still present, they are not currently at high concentrations.

Largemouth bass and white crappie are the most popular sport fish in the reservoir. Largemouth bass are extremely abundant with frequent reports of large fish being boated. Spotted bass are there, too, in smaller numbers. Although crappie fishing varies from year to year, respectable catches are very common in the cooler months of the year. Channel catfish are the most abundant catfish species, although blue catfish are present in considerable numbers. Bluegill, redear and other sunfish species are abundant and provide excellent fishing for the young and old.

Fishing Cover/Structure

Habitat in Lake McQueeney consists primarily of boat docks, piers, bulkheads, overhanging brush, and floating-leaf vegetation. Isolated submerged trees, stumps, and brush can be found throughout the reservoir, providing excellent ambush and resting cover for most game fish species. The upper portion of the reservoir contains rock and gravel within the river channel, while the lower portion consists of steep banks with a mud and clay bottom.
