Fishing at Brandy Branch
In early 2015, SWEPCO repaired the entrance road and public boat ramp on the Brandy Branch Reservoir, which is located five miles south of I-20 on FM 3251 (Exit #610). An additional gravel parking lot also was built for boaters. The dense shrubs and trees were cleared allowing better access for the Harrison County Sheriff�s Office and local game wardens making their rounds.
Partners in the project included Texas Parks & Wildlife, the Eastman Bass Club, Fisher of Men Club, Kilgore Bass Club and Weekenders Team Trail from Carthage.
Texas Parks & Wildlife has created fish habitats by sinking used Christmas trees in the cooling lake. In March 2015, it also released more than 7,000 nine-inch catfish into the reservoir.
