Canoeing on Inks Lake

Inks Lake was formed in 1938 when contruction on the Inks Dam was completed by the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA). Located 55 miles northwest of Austin, Texas on Highway 29, Inks Lake is the next lake down the Colorado River from Lake Buchanan. It starts just a short distance from the base of Buchanan Dam. With a length of 4.2 miles and a width of 3,000 feet, Inks Lake is the shortest of the first four lakes but is also one of the prettiest.

The boating and water skiing are fantastic on Inks Lake. The view of the bridge that spans the lake and the view of the dam are very appealing.

Inks Lake has been stock for fishand and is well-known for its largemouth bass, white bass, catfish, crappie, and sunfish.

The old Inks Lake Bridge
over Inks Lake on Hwy 29

The have recently built a new 4 lane bridge going over Inks Lake which replaced the old Inks Lake Bridge. They are keeping the old bridge as a walking bridge over the lake. There will be no diving from the old bridge or fishing from the old bridge, but the views of the lake, Buchanan Dam, and boating activity are great from the old bridge. A beautiful moonlight walk on the old bridge with the gentle lake breezes makes for a great evening.
