Fishing and Fish Stocking

Visitors to Figure Four Lake may not know that the lake is operated by Fort Bend Municipal Utility District No. 118 (MUD 118). While the lake serves as a detention/retention area to help manage storm water and prevent flooding, it is also utilized as an amenity for the community providing natural areas, manicured green spaces, walking trails, and numerous fishing opportunities.

In the first quarter of 2021, MUD 118 completed a survey of the lake habitat and is now implementing a fish stocking program to improve the overall quality of fishing in Figure Four Lake.  To conduct the survey, fish were collected from the lake and evaluated. After recording observations about the fish including the size, weight, and species, each fish was returned safely to the lake. The observations recorded were then utilized to evaluate the health and population density of the various fish species found in Figure Four Lake.

The quantity and species of fish to be released for the planned stocking was determined by the findings of the survey and is expected to help balance the habitat and ensure a healthy and stable population of fish. The stocking is scheduled to take place in March of 2021. MUD 118 plans to continue to monitor and improve the natural habitat and fishery of Figure Four Lake to maintain a heathy and productive amenity for years to come.

Animal Control in the Subdivision

As spring arrives, bringing mild temperatures, the weather is perfect to enjoy the District’s parks, playgrounds, and trails. Often our K9 friends join us for our daily dose of exercise. The District has seen an increase in the number of reports of unrestrained dogs in area parks, and along trails.

Although your dog may be gentle, many people can be frightened by unrestrained dogs. Unrestrained dogs may be overly enthusiastic with small children, the young-at-heart, and other pets in the community which can create a risk for dog bites or other injuries. Unrestrained or free-roaming dogs pose a substantial threat to the public. In addition, unrestrained dogs are at an increased risk of being bitten by wildlife present in the community, increasing the potential for the spread of illness.

Fort Bend County has established regulations requiring the restraint of dogs when outside a dwelling. Enforcement of restraint laws is essential in protecting the public using common areas within the community. As you enjoy the great outdoors with your pet, please be courteous, and help keep our community safe by abiding by dog restraint regulations. The District also encourages you to report all instances of unrestrained dogs.

To report a dog bite or other emergency situation, please call 911. For non-emergency reports of unrestrained dogs, please contact Fort Bend County Animal Control Services (281) 342-1512.
