Surface area: 11,954 acres with a Maximum depth of 85 feet. It was impounded in 1932 and renovated in 1972 with a new spillway. Most of Lake Bridgeport's 170-mile shoreline is good bass habitat, with 7 miles of rip-rap, 90 miles of boulders, and many coves and points. Near the Lakeview Lodge on the Sid Richardson Scout Ranch, near Windy Point, Captain Kidd Point, and Steele Island, there are submerged gravel piles that were deposited when the West Fork Trinity River flowed free and uncontrolled. These piles provide excellent habitat for white bass and black basses. Floating pondweed, cattails, and bulrush make up the vegetative cover.
