FEATURED LAKE

Amistad Reservoir is located on the Rio Grande, 12 miles northwest of Del Rio in Val Verde County. The lake straddles the border of Texas and Mexico. By treaty, Texas has rights to 56.2% of the total conservation capacity of Amistad and 58.6% of the total conservation capacity of Falcon. The fraction of the actual storage that belongs to Texas is formally determined biweekly by the International Boundary Water Commission (IBWC).

The Amistad Reservoir was formed in November, 1969 by the construction of Amistad Dam to provide flood control, irrigation, water hydroelectric power, conservation, and recreation to the area. The dam and lake are managed by the United States government and Mexico. The name of the Lake and dam, Amistad, is the Spanish word for "friendship".

Amistad Reservoir is stocked with many species of fish, including largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, Guadalupe bass, and catfish. Amistad National Recreation Area includes the land area around the Amistad Reservoir on the Texas side of the lake. The lake provides year-round recreation, including boating, fishing, swimming, scuba diving and water-skiing,

There are other non-water related activities including picnicking, camping, and hunting. The area is abundant in archeology and rock art, and contains a variety of plant and animal life.Reservoir Controlling Authority

The colored dots on this map depict streamflow conditions as a percentile, which is computed from the period of record for the current day of the year. Only stations with at least 30 years of record are used. The gray circles indicate other stations that were not ranked in percentiles either because they have fewer than 30 years of record or because they report parameters other than streamflow. Some stations, for example, measure stage only.
