FORT WORTH, Texas – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Vicksburg District will begin staging material and equipment behind the dam at Navarro Mills Lake to repair the discharge channel slope and fishing pier approximately July 24. Access to the fishing pier will be temporarily closed while the material and equipment is being delivered. Work on the discharge channel slope will begin on the west side of the discharge channel, therefore the fishing area, which is located on the east side of the discharge channel, will re-open after the material and equipment is delivered.
The fishing area will remain open to the public until repairs begin on the east side of the discharge channel and will remain closed until the repairs are completed. The entire project is estimated to take up to six months or more if weather permits.
As always, when visiting the lake for any recreation activity, visitors are encouraged to wear their lifejackets. For more information on the closure, call the Navarro Mills project office at (254) 578-1431.
