BEWARE OF DANGERS AT TERRY’S LAKE Terry Carpenter, founder of Terrytown, bought what seemed to be worthless river-bottom land between Scottsbluff and Gering and promptly set about "making improvements." One of the first things was to set up a brick factory. To get sand and gravel for making bricks and blocks, he used what was available. The hole that remained promptly filled with water and is now known as "Terry's Lake." Sand that was not suitable for bricks was used for fill in the low-land. Forty eight apartments were then constructed from the bricks. Terry’s Lake offers great fishing. Stocked with trout, fisherman can also hook perch, catfish and even some Northern pike. Although very tempting, only the fish are allowed to swim in Terry’s Lake. The lake’s bottom is shallow out to about 10 to 15 feet and then it just drops off to an estimated 30 feet to 50 feet in depth.
