Falcon International Reservoir, commonly called Falcon Lake, is located on the Rio Grande, southeast of Laredo, Texas and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. The huge lake is bounded by the Texas-Mexico border. The reservoir was formed by the construction of the Falcon Dam to provide water conservation, irrigation, flood control, and hydroelectricity to the area. The dam and lake are managed by both the United States and Mexican governments through the International Boundary and Water Commission. The lake is named after María Rita de la Garza Falcón, for whom the town of Falcon was named.

Falcon International Reservoir has been stocked with species of fish, including largemouth bass, crappie, catfish, and channel bass.
