• River: Trinity River
• Surface Area: 2,159 Acres
• Maximum Depth: 49 feet

Fairfield Lake is on Big Brown Creek about 5 miles northeast of Fairfield off FM 488 in northeastern Freestone County, Texas.


Lake Fairfield is a 2,032-acre reservoir on Big Brown Creek, Texas, a tributary of the Trinity River, providing cooling water for two 575-megawatt lignite-fired electric generation units. Bank access is adequate and two boat ramps are present, although boat access is limited during low water levels. Giant cane and cattails form a fringe in the littoral zone around most of the lake. American lotus is present in shallow water (<4 feet deep), primarily in the backs of coves.


Access to the lake is provided through Fairfield Lake State Park, which may be closed for wildlife management activities on occasion. Check the park web page for closure notices and dates.

********** NOTICE **********

Fairfield Lake continues to experience late-summer fish kills, and TPWD has suspended stocking at this lake until further notice. Fish kills have been documented on this power-plant lake since 2003. They occur in August and September when hot weather and shorter days lead to a shortage of oxygen in the water; the most recent one occurred on 09/20/2013. For updates, visit the Facebook page for TPWD's Tyler field office.
