Wylie Off The Beaten Path: 4 reviews and 4 photos


The lake is approximately 21,400 acres in size the deepest part of the lake is about 38 feet deep. The Lake was constructed for the purpose of flood control and water supply and the gates are closed to prevent flooding down stream of the lake when rain occurs. After stream and river flows decrease, water is slowly released from the lakes, thus preventing flooding downstream. Lavon is noted among anglers for its outstanding crappie and catfish catches.
