Texans created man-made lakes

The eastern half of Texas had become pretty tame by the late 1870s, even downright civilized, compared with the more sparsely settled border country. While ranchers in the southwestern part of the state still worried about cattle thieves and occasional forays by hostile Indians crossing the Rio Grande into Texas from Mexico or raiding from their reservations in Indian Territory (now Oklahoma), some residents of Corsicana organized a fishing club they called the Navarro Fish Association.
