Since the fall of 2008, Cordillera Ranch Living magazine has been a great resource for Cordillera Ranch residents, members and those curious about the Cordillera Ranch lifestyle. As the magazine has grown and captured more and more readers, we have continued to broaden its content and story base to meet not just the interests of Cordillera Ranch residents and members, but those interested in the lifestyle in Cordillera Ranch, Boerne and the Hill Country.


So, with that in mind, welcome to the all new Cordillera Ranch Living. We have significantly increased the variety of content in the magazine, and we hope that you find the refreshed look, layout and features entertaining and engaging. From interior design to art to family articles, this magazine now truly represents the finest in Cordillera Ranch and Hill Country living. If you don’t live here quite yet, we trust that the articles you are about to read will only deepen your desire to breathe deeply amongst the beauty of our area.


As for our cover, we were lucky enough to spend some time with Cordillera Ranch resident Rose Monday and Maggie Vessey. Rose is one of the most respected 800m coaches in the world, and is also one of the coaches for Team USA’s Track and Field teams for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. Maggie is currently a world-class 800m runner that is training with Rose, and has her sights also set on the Olympic Games. It’s a fascinating story about two women, 25 years apart, bonded by shared desires to fulfill dreams in a discipline they are amazingly passionate about and – though they have tried- neither seem to be able to retire from it.


Again, I truly hope that you enjoy this May/June 2012 issue of Cordillera Ranch Living. A lot of work goes into the magazine, and we are constantly looking to improve. If you ever have a suggestion, idea or critique…I’d love to hear it. Drop me an e-mail anytime.


Enjoy the read,
Charlie Hill

Fish Stocking in Swede Creek Lake

Swede Creek Lake is an outstanding resource and amenity at Cordillera Ranch, and during my 16 years on the Ranch, we have watched the fish populations remain fairly healthy. In 2015, we did a fish survey in Swede Creek Lake to get an estimate of the health and numbers of fish and that report found a very healthy population of bass and several species of sunfish. Over the years, we have caught the following species out of Swede Creek Lake: largemouth or black bass, Guadalupe or spotted bass, rock bass, red breast sun fish, long ear sunfish, green sunfish, bluegill, channel catfish, striped bass and a few turtle species that include the red-ear slider, Texas river cooter and softshell turtle. We have also seen nutra rat and beaver using the lake as home.
