Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Pat Mayse Lake is a man-made reservoir situated in the Red River Basin in Texas, with a capacity of over 250,000 acre-feet. The lake was created in 1969 by the construction of the Pat Mayse Dam on Chicota Creek, a tributary of the Red River. The primary purpose of the lake is to control flooding in the Red River Basin, but it also serves as a source of drinking water and a popular recreational area. The hydrology of Pat Mayse Lake is influenced by precipitation, snowpack, and surface water flow from Chicota Creek. The lake is used for fishing, boating, and camping, and the surrounding area is a popular spot for hunting and wildlife viewing. The lake also supports agricultural activities, including irrigation and livestock grazing.
