Cisco Reservoir was surveyed in 2003 using electrofishing and trap nets and in 2004 using gill nets. This report summarizes the results of the surveys and contains a management plan for the reservoir based on those findings.

Reservoir Description

Cisco is a 1,050-acre reservoir constructed on Sandy Creek approximately 55 miles east of Abilene, Texas. It is located in the Brazos River Basin, and its primary use is for municipal water supply. Secondary use is recreation. Water level was 21 to 22 feet below conservation level during the sampling period. At time of sampling, littoral habitat was primarily rock and mud flats.

Fish Community

Management Strategies

Problems at Cisco Reservoir are primarily fertility based. A large influx of water would greatly improve the fish populations. Encourage anglers, through press releases and individual contacts, to harvest legal white bass.
