and Lake Caliraya are two connected man-made lakes
which was the result of an infrastructure project. It was
actually a large reservoir built by American engineers in
1943 to supply water to the Caliraya Hydroelectric Plant.
As the dams were constructed, entrepreneurs with foresight
created two adjacent communities which were envisioned to
be ecological communities, where one can enjoy the beauty
and richness of unspoiled nature. The results were
man-made mountain lakes complete with coves and sand bars
- Lake Caliraya and Sierra Lakes.
also seeded the lake with Largemouth Black Bass imported
from the USA, which continue to proliferate and provide
game fishers with year-round weekend excitement.
In fact, the two
lakes are the only place in the whole country where
Philippine anglers can attempt to catch the famed
Largemouth Black Bass, one of the top freshwater gamefish
of the United States of America.
