Colorado County's Eagle Lake, "The Goose Hunting Capital of the World," is named for the lake where Stephen F. Austin and his explorers killed an eagle in 1821.
Eagle Lake is a Texas Main Street City that is in the Texas Independence Region and on the Texas Pioneer Trail. The area includes open lands to the south and east, woodlands to the north and west, plus riparian growth along the Colorado River and the privately owned Eagle Lake. The city is nestled on the Central U.S. Flyway, making it possible to see more than 250 species of birds.
