The Lake Conroe Stump Removal Project and Map

Taking advantage of the low lake levels, the SJRA, TPWD, Tx Bass Federation, Lake Conroe Association along with the family that owns EZ Boat Storage and the Palms Marina pooled private funds to embark on a stump cutting project to eliminate the visible stumps in the main body of the lake (not the tributaries, shorelines or fingers that feed the lake). This project covered an area from the dam on the south end all the way north to the southern point of Cape Malibu or approximately 2.5 miles north of the FM 1097 bridge (see map below). This project is complete and it can be stated that virtually all stumps visible at the 192.68 MSL lake level have been cut and eliminated. There were approximately 400 stumps targeted and they were all cut approximately 8 feet below the 192.68 MSL level. The stumps were not removed from the lake as approximately 95% of the stumps sunk to the bottom of the lake providing an enhanced fishing habitat. Lake Conroe is a safer and more navigable lake because of the support of the Lake Conroe Association, San Jacinto River Authority, Texas Parks & Wildlife, Texas Black Bass United and the Texas B.A.S.S. Federation. Thanks to all.
