Eagle Lake, Texas

"The Goose Hunting Capital of the World," is named for the lake where Stephen F. Austin and his explorers killed an eagle in 1821. The area produces abundant rice harvests that exceed a million bushels annually. The environment includes open lands to the south and east, woodlands to the north and west plus riparian growth along the Colorado River and Eagle Lake. The city is also nestled on the Central U.S. Flyway, making it possible to see more than 250 species of birds.

Situated in Colorado County, Eagle Lake, a Texas 2000 Main Street City, is located in the Texas Independence Region and on the Texas Pioneer Trail covering a four-county area.
