Coalgate - Cody Ranch Peach Creek and Crabgrass Lakes
Cody Ranch is a 3000-acre ranch located in Coalgate Oklahoma which is 2.5 hours north of downtown Dallas; 2 hours SE of Oklahoma City and 2 hours and 15 minutes south of Tulsa. It is an easy drive from DFW and for our members on the North side of the metroplex it is less than 2 hours.
Cody Ranch is unlike any property in the club, with its 3000 acres, 8 lakes and 2 places to lodge it offers unparalleled opportunities for our members. All lakes are approx 10-18 acres with one larger 30-acre lake and one smaller 6-acre lake. For reservation purposes, we have broken the property into three opportunities to fish.
Opportunity 1 offers two lakes called Twin Lakes which are just 100 feet apart and are on the east side of the ranch.
Opportunity 2 offers two lakes called the Hart Lakes and are near the middle of the ranch.
Opportunity 3 offers two lakes (Crabgrass and Peach Creek) that are in the north end of the ranch. When you make a reservation you are making a reservation to fish on 2 lakes within the opportunities described above.
There are two lodging opportunities:
The Lodge is 5 bedrooms with 9 beds total (8 twins and 1 king), two separate living areas, and overlooks a small 6-acre lake.
The Cabin has two bedrooms (Beds for 3) and sits next to Moonshine Lake, the largest lake on the property (30 acres). Moonshine Lake is only available to members who stay the night at one of the two lodging options on the property. Please note you must book both an overnight stay AND one of the 3 other opportunities to fish on Moonshine Lake. On busy spring weekends, we may have two overnight groups; one at each facility. Meaning, others outside of your party may join you on Moonshine Lake.
Peach Creek and Crabgrass: These two lakes are on the north end of the ranch about a 10-minute ride from either the cabin or the Lodge.
Peach Creek is the first lake you come to and has been stocked with pure Florida Bass only. This does not mean that some Native Bass genetics have not filtered into the lake. The deepest portion of the lake is an 18-foot hole located approximately halfway down the dam.
Crabgrass Lake is at the far north end of the ranch and you will need a truck, SUV or car with a bit higher clearance to access the lake. You don't have to have a 4x4, but don't bring your luxury sedan. This is the clearest of the lakes with visibility of over 6 feet and lots of grass to fish. Eastern half of the lake is shallow with lots of lily pads and timber to fish. 2 hours of test fishing produced a 6 lb fish and electroshock survey produced a fish near 7 lbs. This lake has lots of fish in the 6 to 8 lb range.
fished for a few hours 7/28 on peach creek at Cody ranch. Action was steady going between, a frog, Zara spook, and Texas rigged soft plastics. Biggest came on a 5xd 4.9lb along the dam. - Danny Renfro on Jul 29 ,2018
