Jim Chapman Lake, also known as Cooper Lake, is operated by the Army Corps of Engineers and is located east of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex in the state of Texas. The lake provides water supply storage for the North Texas Municipal Water District. The lake is known as a perfect location for fishing and is stocked with multiple species of fish, including blue and channel catfish, bluegill, Florida largemouth bass, crappie and hybrid striped bass.
The lake was known as Cooper Lake, but was renamed by to honor Jim Chapman, a former congressman from nearby Sulphur Springs, although the Cooper Lake State Park's name remained the same.
