Construction of Canyon Dam began in 1958 in an effort to control flooding of the Guadalupe River, and the lake was filled to its current conservation level in 1968. Canyon Lake is now one of the premier destinations in Texas for swimming, fishing, and watersports. Tubing, Kayaking, and rafting is also very popular on the lower Guadalupe River, downstream from Canyon Lake and Canyon Dam. With the lake's 23 boat ramps and ideal conditions for tubing and rainbow trout fishing on the lower Guadalupe River, this area is proudly known as the Water Recreation Capital of Texas!
