Based on the same aerial imagery, it is estimated that the lake fluctuated between ~933 surface acres and ~1,016 surface acres.Valley Lake Dam History: Valley Dam, which forms Valley Lake, was authorized by the State of Texas in 1959. Construction of the dam was completed in 1961 to provide a cooling water reservoir for the operation of the Valley Steam Electric Station. A Certificate of Adjudication authorized an impoundment of up to 15,000 acre feet of water. The plant has been decommissioned and deconstructed. Valley Dam is a 2,770' long homogeneous earth fill embankment with a maximum height of 55 feet above the original streambed. The impressive and well-engineered dam looks west at sunset, providing amazing views off of Valley Lake.Dam Report: Freese and Nichols, Inc. conducted a dam inspection on September 26, 2017, and provided an updated report in December, 2017 for Valley Lake Dam.Dam Project Description- Valley Dam was authorized by the State of Texas, Permit No. 1939 in 1959. A Certificate of Adjudication authorized an impoundment of up to 15,000 acre-feet of water for industrial purposes. Construction of the dam was completed in 1961 to provide a cooling water reservoir for operation of the Valley Steam Electric Station. The power plant has been decommissioned and demolished.Valley Dam is a 2,770-foot long homogeneous earth fill embankment with a maximum height of 55 feet above the original streambed. The crest of the dam is at elevation 617.5 feet. The upstream slope is 3H:1V with an 8-foot-wide berm at elevation 600 feet. The upstream slope is protected by 24-inch rock riprap from the berm to the crest. The downstream slope is 2.5H:1V with grass slope protection and a 12-foot-wide berm at elevation 590 feet. Seepage control within the embankment is provided by an 18-inch thick sand blanket drain that intersects the toe of the embankment on the downstream slope. The downstream slope has a longitudinal concrete- lined flume (v-ditch) on the berm to collect surface runoff from the upper portion of the slope. Flow in the longitudinal flume is conveyed to the toe of the embankment via four transverse concrete-lined flumes. No instrumentation or survey monitoring programs exist for Valley Dam.The low flow outlet, made operational as of May 2018, consists of an 18-inch diameter gate valve controlled concrete pipe with an upstream invert elevation of 605.75 feet and is located at Station 21+00, near the right abutment of the embankment. The discharge area is protected with a concrete V- shaped channel.The service spillway is a 200-foot wide, concrete-lined channel located in the right abutment with a crest elevation of 611 feet. Two lines of baffle blocks provide energy dissipation at the end of the concrete-lined channel, approximately 50 feet downstream from the crest. The service spillway is separated at its left side by natural topography from the right abutment of the main embankment. There is no emergency spillway at Valley Dam.In Texas, the TCEQ is the regulatory agency responsible for the administration of State dam safety laws. Dams are classified according to the size of the dam and the potential for loss of human life and property damage downstream from the dam in the event of a breach of the dam. The size classification of small, intermediate, or large is based on the storage in the reservoir and the height of the embankment. Intermediate size dams are those with maximum storage between 1,000 and 50,000 acre-feet and/or a maximum height between 40 and 100 feet. Valley Dam, which has a maximum height of 55 feet and maximum storage of 26,500 acre-feet at the top of the dam, is an intermediate size dam.The hazard classification can be low, significant or high. A high hazard dam is usually located where failure can cause serious damage to agricultural, industrial, and commercial facilities, important public utilities, main highways, and railroads. TCEQ criteria define a high hazard structure as one which could potentially impact three or more residential structures, or result in probable loss of seven or more lives. The area downstream of Valley Dam is primarily agricultural land in the floodplain of Brushy Creek and the Red River. There are, however, more than three homes located along Farm to Market (FM) Road 1753 near Brushy Creek about 3.6 miles downstream of the dam, and numerous houses further downstream in the Red River floodplain. The FM 1752 and FM 1753 bridges over Brushy Creek would also be overtopped in the event of a breach of the dam. Valley Dam is therefore classified as a high hazard dam.According to State criteria, as an intermediate size, high hazard dam Valley Dam is required to pass 88 percent of the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF). As determined by the probable maximum flood study and breach analysis completed by Freese and Nichols, Inc. in 2005, Valley Dam passes 100 percent of the PMF event, and is thus hydraulically adequate in its current condition.A full Freese & Nichols, Inc. report, dated December 2017, containing specific details concerning maintenance and repair recommendations can be made available to prequalified Buyers upon request.Terrain:Topography at Valley Lake Ranch is impressive with over 100 feet of elevation change. The high point of ~671feet above mean sea level is found in the southeast corner of the property, and a low point of ~566 feet is found in the northeast corner. The property is mostly treed with sporadic native pastureland desirable for grazing cattle. The landscape lends itself well to recreational land. Highly desirable building sites exist around much of the lake as sunsets and sunrises are truly remarkable from many points overlooking this impressive body of water.Additional Water Sources: There are 3 earthen water wells located on the property. The Neches River Basin aquifer is found below Valley Lake Ranch.A rural water line runs into the approximate center of the ranch from County Road 1752.Brushy creek flows from the northeast corner of the property into Valley Lake.Wildlife: Valley Lake Ranch is home to Whitetail deer, feral hogs, Bald Eagles, dove, Rio Grande Turkey, bobcats, coyotes and of course, waterfowl. Since its inception in 1961, migratory waterfowl have utilized Valley Lake as a wintering ground during peak migration. Features including a major body of water in the central flyway, coupled with natural wetlands in close proximity to the Red River, attract migratory waterfowl populations during peak migration.Fisheries: Valley Lake has proven to be a prolific fishery. Our team fished Valley Lake for 3 days and 6 fishermen caught over 300 Largemouth Bass. Notable fish caught included seven fish over 8 lbs., 4 fish over 7 lbs and 40+ fish between 5-7 lbs. This natural fishery will serve as a solid foundation primed for the next owner to introduce a fish management program capable of contending with the list of renowned and legendary North Texas Bass Fisheries. Additional species of fish caught by the HRC team include Sand Bass, Crappie, Drum and Channel Catfish.Recreation: Water depths at Valley Lake range from highs up to approximately 38 feet and all depths in between that and the shoreline. Multiple coves, inlets, and creek channels compliment open water to create a spectacular, broad recreational offering. In addition to sport fishing and hunting, Valley Lake lends well to jet skiing, water skiing, sail boating, scuba diving, and general motor boating. Kayaking and float fishing can be excellent in the coves and inlets on the lake.Noted Whitetail deer populations, tree cover, topography and natural forbs provide ample opportunity for bow hunting. Fertile soils and sub soils on the property may yield high quality improved wildlife food plots to supplement natural forage components and/or cultivated crops to benefit migratory bird hunting.Fencing: The perimeter of Valley Lake Ranch is fenced.

PROPERTY OVERVIEW: Walnut Bend Ranch is a sprawling, 1,750+/- acre high fenced recreational ranch found in the northeastern portion of highly sought-after Cooke County in North Texas. The property is 17+/- miles by way of paved FM 371 and graveled County Road 115 from downtown Gainesville, TX. This impressive property offers scenic terrain with dramatic topography and big views, numerous potential building sites, plenty of FM and County Road frontage, hardwood forests, miles of both sides of perennial Hickory Creek, and an abundance of surface water. This quintessential Cooke County landscape has superior whitetail genetics, 12+/- miles of game fence, multiple smaller lakes, several potential lake site(s), 47+/- acres of planted food plots, outstanding wildlife habitat and expansive hardwood timber. A significant portion of the ranch is encumbered by oil and gas production, but the encumbrance is minimized by the terrain and tree cover. The northern 750+/- acres is devoid of active oil and gas production lending itself to numerous building locations in scenic locations. It is especially rare in this area to find a ranch of this size and quality with limited improvements. We are honored to offer the Walnut Bend Ranch to the market. This is the largest property to be offered in this area in over 10 years that we are aware of. This ranch represents a unique opportunity to own a sprawling, trophy hunting ranch within 80 miles of the DFW-metroplex in an exceptional location. TERRAIN: The Walnut Bend Ranch ranges in elevations from ~829' near the eastern boundary to ~650' in the Hickory Creek valley for a total elevation change of ~ 179 feet. The land is marked by a scenic transition from east to west throughout the property. Picturesque points, hilltops and oak covered hills provide views across the ranch and into Oklahoma. Deep drainages provide potential lake sites and make the property feel even larger than it already is. Hickory Creek is a key feature with long stretches of clear water and diverse riparian areas extending for miles. WILDLIFE & LAND MANAGEMENT: The array of wildlife on the Walnut Bend Ranch is a unique and impressive asset seldom found within 90 miles of the metroplex. The entirety of the ranch's 1,750+/- acres is game-fenced and home to an impressive whitetail deer herd. Several breeder bucks were brought in years ago, and the resulting herd is as impressive as it is healthy and properly managed. A small, wildlife management minded group lightly hunted the property with archery equipment only. There is currently no hunting since the ranch is now being marketed for sale. Several of the harvested deer shown in the photos speak to the quality of the deer herd. There are also 6 Outback protein feeders that are included with the sale. In addition to the deer herd, Rio Grande turkeys are numerous in this part of Cooke County, and provide outstanding hunting potential. Waterfowl hunting in this part of Cooke County is also a unique opportunity. The winter wheat fields provide food for migrating waterfowl of the Central Flyway, while several of the lakes appear to be preferred loafing spots for ducks and geese alike. Bobcats, coyotes, mountain lions, owls, hawks, dove, bats, bald eagles, woodpeckers, falcons and over 315 different vertebrate species are native to this region of Cooke County and the greater Red River Valley. The diversity, abundance and variety of habitat and local species alike makes for a special and unique wildlife asset within the Walnut Bend Ranch. WHITETAIL DEER HERD: Ranch is in the Managed Lands Deer Program through the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. There are typically 10-14 buck permits and 10-14 doe permits issued annually based on spotlight deer counts. Buck doe ratio is close to 1 buck: 1 doe and quality of trophy bucks is high. There are believed to be bucks in the 180 B&C class currently on the ranch with the largest buck harvested being in 2018 scoring 232 B&C. TREE COVER & WILDLIFE HABITAT: Approximately 70% of the property is wooded with a strong collection of mature post oak, red oak, blackjack oak, plum, pecan trees, sycamore, hickory, walnut, elm, cottonwood, and other trees common to this area. Brush and beneficial browse for wildlife include greenbrier, blackberries, redbud, sand plum and other native species. The diversity of vegetation, density of cover, reliable water sources, and natural travel corridors created by the landscape all combine to provide top-tier wildlife habitat. Typical of Cooke County and the greater Red River Valley, the vegetation found on the ranch is dominated by native bluestem grasses. The remaining 30% of the ranch consists of 25% open to semi-open grasslands dominated by strong bluestem grasses. The remaining 5% of the ranch has been worked into cultivated wildlife food plots for hunting, game management, and wildlife ag exemption. There haven't been any cattle on the ranch in years so the grasslands are in phenomenal condition. WATER FEATURES & FISHING: Hickory Creek is a live-water and perennial creek that runs through the middle of the ranch for approximately 4.34+/- miles with long stretches of clear water. There are numerous seasonal/wet-weather creek drainages that run water throughout the property, all flowing into the impressive Hickory Creek valley. Eight (8) smaller lakes were built and stocked with fish; these lakes measure approximately 1.5-3.5+/- acres in size. The stocked ponds and lake provide excellent, on-site fishing opportunities for largemouth bass, crappie and catfish. In the winter months, migrating waterfowl use the bodies of water frequently as well. The eastern side of the property has a significant drainage which appears to be a prime site to construct a potential lake. It is believed that this drainage could allow for a lake measuring approximately 30-35+/- surface acres. An additional drainage to the north provides another potential lake-site measuring 25-28+/- acres. Determining viability of these lake sites is the responsibility of the Buyer, but both appear feasible. ROAD FRONTAGE & INTERIOR ROADS: Multiple entry points provide great access to Walnut Bend Ranch. There is frontage on two paved, black top Farm-to-Market roads as well as frontage on an all-weather, graveled county road. The eastern side of the ranch fronts on FM 371 for approximately 0.34+/- miles; the southern boundary fronts on FM 2383 for approximately 0.52+/- miles; and the eastern side of the ranch fronts on CR 115 for 0.75+/- miles. Several locked gates with cattle guard provide secure entries. There is also a roadway easement providing another all-weather access point. The interior roads are superior which is a positive impact of the expansive O&G field found on the southern portion of the ranch. Over 8+/- miles of all-weather rock roads provide access throughout the ranch, including two concrete crossings over Hickory Creek. Several trails provide access to more remote areas with little to no O&G production. Additionally, almost the entirety of 12 +/- miles of game-fenced perimeter is drivable, furthering the already excellent access throughout the ranch and allowing for fence maintenance and inspection. STRUCTURAL IMPROVEMENTS & 10 ACRE LEASE:The structural improvements on the ranch are limited to a 10 acre 'yard' currently utilized and leased by the O&G operator. These buildings are under a one-year lease expiring in September, 2021. These buildings could be utilized by the next owner or the lease could likely be extended. A 2,700 +/- SF office in reportedly good condition could, with small renovations, serve nicely as a guest or foreman house. A short distance away is a 4,000+/- SF shop including approximately 1,000 SF of living space in the form of a kitchen, living room, 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom barn apartment. The remaining 3,000 SF is currently used for equipment, tool and mechanical storage with two rollup doors and ample parking for equipment. Additionally, several smaller sheds provide tool and equipment storage. Breeding pens and soft release pens are found near this yard, and were operational in the past, but are not currently being utilized. The next owner could clean up these pens and easily begin a deer or exotic breeding program. AREA HISTORY: 200 years ago, the line between eastern, agrarian Caddo tribes and the violent, nomadic Comanche's of the west was a stark boundary found in Cooke County. Heavily timbered forests lay to the East, with ample rainfall to support agricultural efforts. To the west, seemingly infinite open, grass prairies were home to enormous populations of bison, deer and elk. Wars were waged along this line, in hopes of asserting claim to the boundless game, the deep canyons, elevated camp sites and opportunity found here. Incorporated in 1848, the county was named after a hero of the Texas Revolution, William McKinley Cooke, who fought at the Battle of San Jacinto and served as Chief Clerk of War for the Republic of Texas. Later, the Butterfield Overland Mail Route would cross this part of North Texas, carrying mail and wealthy passengers from St. Louis, Missouri and Memphis, Tennessee along some 2,800 miles to San Francisco. Today, the countryside still exudes the same wild nature that appealed to past civilizations. AIRPORTS: Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is a full-service international airport located 70+/- miles south of Walnut Bend Ranch. Gainesville Municipal Airport (GLE) is only 19+/- miles southeast of the ranch. This public airport averages 67+/- aircrafts per day with two (2) runways measuring 6,000' X 100' and 4,307' X 75'. DIRECTIONS FROM DALLAS CITY (1-hour, 20-minute drive): Take I-35 north to Exit 498 going east on Highway 82 toward Sherman, TX. After 4 miles on Hwy 82, turn left (north) on FM 371, then go 5 miles before turning right on FM 2383. There is an entrance along this paved road, but it is best to continue for 1 mile before turning left on CR 115. The entrance gate to the ranch will be 0.75+/- miles to the north and on your left. O&G MINERALS:Surface only. O&G production was recently sold to Team Operating. There are plans to improve the operations without drilling any new wells. Overall, the production does not have a major detrimental impact on the quality of the property. The terrain and tree cover conceal a lot of the wells lessening the visual impact of the activity on the southern portion of the ranch. There is also a Surface Use Agreement that was put in place December 1, 2020. RIGHT-OF-WAYS:Numerous electric and pipeline easements traverse the ranch aboveground and belowground. The northern half of the ranch has less disturbances, less activity and far fewer wells than then southern half of the ranch. ELECTRICITY: Cooke County Electric Cooperative is the primary electric provider in the area. Brazos Electric built a private grid for the Walnut Bend Unit on the property which is owned and controlled by the O&G Operator. There are no provisions for the surface owner to tap into this infrastructure. GROUND WATER: Water wells are common in this area and ground water is believed to be good. Most wells appear to be 800-1000 feet in the Trinity Aquifer. SCHOOL DISTRICT:Callisburg School District. PROPERTY TAXES: The property taxes for 2020 were estimated to be approximately $7,362.54. PRICE: Realistically priced at $3,150 per acre ($5,512,500). Asking price is below current market values for this area because of the oil and gas activity impacted the southern portion of the ranch. Walnut Bend Ranch is believed to be a quality investment for an impressive property.

Maggers Outpost is a hidden gem made up of wild and rugged country. This remote ranch is a mile from public access, back off the beaten path, where the animals flourish. The land has outstanding topography with huge hills just North of Lime Rock Mountain. The oak-covered hills along the southern boundary provide views for miles in all directions with plateaus on top. Large mesquites lie in the valleys holding ample whitetail deer and providing abundant grass for bedding grounds. Scattered ponds yield sustainable water for the wildlife and cattle while also providing excellent bass fishing (see pics). Cedar Creek snakes along the western boundary as it flows along massive bluffs and through heavily wooded bottoms creating a naturally diverse habitat. Cedar Creek sustains deep pockets of water during the summer months with ample signs of local wildlife along the banks and outstanding turkey roosts in the towering trees. Sandy Creek runs through the eastern and most rugged portion of the ranch with 100ft of dramatic elevation on both sides of the creek.

The feeling of being far away from it all is easily obtainable on this secluded retreat. Listing Agent: Boone Campbell (940)-282-5500No Trespassing.

Named after two valleys created by Mesquite and Bear Creek, Twin Valley Ranch is a unique combo ranch containing the majority of the southern and western boundary of Lake Olney, as well as the beginning of Lake Cooper. Waterfowl are drawn to the small lake situated in the middle of the ranch, while the sizable, neighboring lakes create phenomenal duck and waterfowl habitat. A centrally located hill with beautiful bluffs produces remarkable panoramic views of the entire ranch and surrounding lakes. The eastern 1,120+/- acres of the property is cross-fenced into five pastures, which lead to traps and pens at the headquarters. Each portion contains a good water source ranging from one to three and a half acres in size. The headquarters includes the original, rocked homestead and a large metal barn. With a little effort and some TLC, the house could become a unique weekend retreat or cabin. Across Gilmore Road, the Bear Creek Pasture is 360+/- acres cross-fenced into one grass pasture containing the lightest tree cover on the property and one cultivated field producing hay and oats.

Twisted Mesquite Ranch is a gorgeous mix of mature cover and productive grass.   Over the years, this land has been praised for significant gains in cattle on an annual basis as well as enough water to survive the Texas droughts. This acreage sits peacefully on a dead-end road with very little to no traffic, while also lying just 3 miles from paved Murray Hwy (FM 209).  Twisted Mesquite Ranch contains the unique advantage of having land and buck tags available in both Young and Throckmorton County. LAND -- TERRAIN Although this 960-acre ranch contains 80 feet of elevation change in all three perfectly square 320-acre pastures, each has its own distinctive character. The SE-320  is packed with mature mesquites and few scattered oak mottes along a draw/creek, creating obvious surface water potential.  A very well-maintained road takes one back to a large hill with a beautiful 360degree view build-site with electricity nearby at a small hunting cabin capable of resting bodies.  The NE-320  has reliable water and has been recently sprayed for mesquites. This area has the best soils on the ranch and produces ample grass for grazing, fawning, and quality quail habitat.  The westernmost 320 has the most romance with the mature clusters of live oaks and large post oaks on the hills overlooking the neighboring wheat fields.  A ridge along the northern boundary creates a deep bowl of mature cover with thick underbrush. A small, centrally located portion on this 320 recently had a "flash fire" during high winds that burned most of the prickly pear and underbrush but only a few trees, creating an ideal location for a food plot. This scenic ranch encompasses oak-covered hills with beautiful views as well as fertile mesquite flats packed with wildlife. - RANCHING IMPROVEMENTS -Hunting Cabin-Electricity meter, porch, water hauled inExisting Fence-Fair; Cross fenced-Fair;  SE-320, NE-320, W-3207,350 ft of fence needed on the southern and western side of SE320 Pipe working pens on Singleton Rd along the eastern boundaryFort Belknap Electricity meter at hunting campFort Belknap Water on Hamiton Rd-2,450 ft from property- COVER -Tree Cover--Heavy to Moderate: Mesquite, live oak, post oak, hackberry, prickly ash; NE 320 acres has recently been aerially sprayed for mesquitesUnderbrush/Browse--Moderate to thick: lote bush, elbow bush, gum bumelia, some prickly pearNative Grasses/Forbs--Leased for grazing; Excellent Grazing Management; Willing to Stay- WATER FEATURES -2+ acre pond (max capacity); 5 tanks - 1/2-acre to 1/3-acreDraw on the Eastern boundary; Multiple opportunities for more surface waterFort Belknap Coop Water-line on Hamilton Rd-1/2 mile- WILDLIFE -Superb whitetail, turkey, duck, dove, quail, hogs, and varmintExcellent whitetail geneticsSee pics & video for current wildlifeLeased for hunting; Willing to stay- MINERALS -Six Producing oil/gas wells; Three injection-wells; Some non-producing wellsOne natural gas pipeline; One crude oil pipeline & electricity easementsNo minerals available- ACCESS -Gate on Singleton Rd-Caliche/Rocked; Dead End Road3 Miles West of FM 209-Paved; 7 Miles East of FM 1710-PavedListing Broker must be present at all showings or preview with Buyer's Agent.- DISTANCES -9 miles northeast of Woodson24 miles west of Graham (Closest Airport w/ Fuel & Service)24 miles southeast of Throckmorton (Airport)25 miles north of Breckenridge (Airport w/Fuel Service)36 miles northeast of Albany113 miles west of Fort Worth145 miles west of Dallas227 miles east of Midland*More Adjacent Acreage Available* 320 acres South-See Fish Creek Pasture320 acres SouthWest- See Woodson RanchListing Broker: Boone Campbell (940) 282-5500No Trespassing.
