Sheldon Reservoir is located on Carpenters Bayou east of downtown Houston, Texas. The reservoir was created in 1943 by the construction of a dam via the federal government. The dam was built to provide fresh water for shipbuilding and shipping industries on the Houston Ship Channel. After World War II, management of the reservoir was assumed by the City of Houston, later the city sold the reservoir to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Today, the lake is used as a waterfowl sanctuary and public fishing site. The reservoir has been stocked with multiple species of fish including catfish, crappie, largemouth bass, bluegill, and sunfish. Birdwatching is also a popular recreational use of the park.
