Inks-Lake is the second lake in the chain of seven lakes that make up the Highland Lakes of central Texas. It's a man-made reservoir located in the Texas Hill Country. The other lakes in the Highland Lakes chain are Lake Buchanan, Lake Lyndon B. Johnson, Lake Marble Falls, Lake Travis, Lady Bird Lake and Lake Austin. Inks Lake was created in 1938 by the construction of Inks Dam on the Colorado River. The lake is used for flood control, but is also a popular recreational lake, as are all the Highland Lakes. Just a few of the fun activities include swimming, fishing, boating, water-skiing - even scuba diving. Inks Lake is stocked with largemouth bass, white bass, sunfish, catfish and crappie. Inks Lake State Park is adjacent to the lake and offers camping, hiking, backpacking, swimming, golf and cliff jumping. Cliff jumping is confined in an area of Inks Lake State Park called "Devil's Water Hole." A summer camp for boys and girls is also adjacent to the lake. Attractions near Inks Lake include the Lyndon B. Johnson State Historic Site, Colorado Bend State Park, Pedernales Falls State Park, Longhorn Cavern State Park, and Enchanted Rock State Natural Area.

Inks Lake Weather & Climate

Central Texas basically has two seasons - summers that may last from April through October, and winters that start in November and usually lasts until March. When summer ends, it's too dry for autumn foliage, except in East Texas. Precipitation is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year, although most occurs in May and September in the form of thunderstorms. Large amounts of rain falling within short periods of time cause flash floods. Hail is reported around the Central Texas area an average of 31 days per year and tornadoes are reported on an average of 12 days per year. Average yearly rainfall is near 32 inches. Average sunshine varies from about 50% in the winter to near 75% in the summer. Although tornadoes are rare, they are most often associated with dissipating tropical storms.
