In 2001, the Texas Legislature declared West Tawakoni the "Catfish Capital of Texas."
West Tawakoni is the “Catfish Capital” of Texas for a good reason. We are located on the west side of Lake Tawakoni which boasts some of the biggest blue cats in the south, and has on more than one occasion produced multiple 5 fish stringers over 200lbs! Lake Tawakoni boasts 225 miles of shoreline, with a large abundance of Crappie, Black Bass, Sand Bass, Striped Bass, Hybrid Bass which of course help feed its “MONSTER” Catfish.
BOIL WATER NOTICE UPDATE 10/24/2014: Water has been temporarily restored.
We are issuing a boil water notice for those who experienced no water in certain areas in the city until further notice after yesterday’s water main break, which was repaired temporarily. On Tuesday night, Oct 28th, the water will be cut off again at 10:30 p.m. for approximately one or two hours for further repairs. The boil water notice will continue until notice is sent back out to our customers in those same areas. It will affect everyone on 276 and most of the subdivisions off of 276.
NOTICE TO CITIZENS: We want everyone to know that if you are disabled or elderly and need assistance in getting trash and debris to the Clean-up dump site we are here to help. Read More
