Lavon-Lake is a freshwater lake located on the East Fork of the Trinity River in northeast Texas. It's called both Lavon Lake and Lake Lavon, but more commonly the latter. The lake is known for its fishing of largemouth bass, white bass, blue catfish and crappie. The lake was designed in 1948 for flood control, conservation storage, and recreational use. It was completed in 1953. Lavon Lake is near the town of Wylie, Texas, home of the Wylie Championship Rodeo. This two-day event attracts an average of 2,000 people and includesBull Riding, Bronco Busting, over 50 concession and vendor booth's with free kids games and a Kiddie Korral featuring inflatable bounce houses of all sizes. Other things to do near Lavon Lake include hiking, bike riding, swimming, boating, and golf. Places of interest include the Veteran's Memorial in Olde City Park in Wylie, and the annual old-fashioned Christmas Parade, also in the city of Wylie. Lavon Lake makes a great weekend getaway or family vacation destination. Close enough to city life for all the conveniences, yet far enough away for a peaceful, back-to-nature lakeside adventure.

Lavon Lake Weather & Climate

Northern Texas has a climate that is semi-arid and prone to drought. Annual rainfall is between 16 and 32 inches (810 mm). During the summer, this area of state sees the most clear and sunny days. On most winter nights, temperatures fall below the freezing mark, or 32 F (0 C). The wettest months of the year are April and May. Tornadoes are common, caused by the convergence of westerly and southerly prevailing winds during the late spring, making the region part of Tornado Alley. Poor land management, drought, and high wind speeds cause large dust storms. Improved land-management practices have improved dust storms somewhat in recent years. The panhandle region, farthest from the Gulf of Mexico, experiences colder winters than the other regions of Texas.
