Henderson - Dogwood Lakes Estate: East Lake
This gorgeous property has 2 lakes. The bigger 22-acre lake is known as East Lake, and the smaller 12-acre lake is called West Lake. No question that these lakes are PWF premier fisheries. After you enter the gate you will be greeted with a 1/4 mile drive of alternating pear and crepe myrtle trees. The entire drive is an asphalt road that will take you over the dam of the west lake. After crossing the dam you will approach a small incline and notice the owners home and this picturesque lake directly in front of you. The concrete boat ramp is located in the corner of the dam. You may park your vehicle on the ramp if you are using the provided boats or launch your own boat from the ramp. Be careful not to rut up the grassy area when launching your own boat.
Instantly you will notice that this property is a show place. East Lake has produced hundreds of bass over 8 lbs and dozens more over 10 lbs. The lake record is 12.8 lbs. This lake typically produces more fish in the 3 to 8 lb range than the smaller lake, but the smaller lake has produced more double-digit fish. The lake has a maximum depth of 22 feet and lots of timber to target fish. There are two 15 foot decked boats with foot controlled trolling motor and batteries provided. Your reservation includes the use of one boat for every 2 people booked. The boats are located near the boat ramp. Boat seats can be found in the trash can on the bank adjacent to the boats.
While there is no lodging, Henderson is only 6 miles away and there are several motels including a newer Holiday Inn Express. This lake requires a 2 adult minimum.
No 1/2 day reservations unless you have booked a whole day at either lake. You must have a separate reservation to fish each lake.
If you are unfamiliar with bow mounted hand or foot control trolling motors please call the club office for tips to make your day on the water a lot more enjoyable. Please, remember to turn on the trolling motor. The switch is on the foot pedal. If the trolling motor quits is likely that one of the two batteries has completely drained. Simply switch the red dial at the back of the boat to the other number. Either 1 or 2. For example, if the dial is on 1, switch it to 2. If the dial is on 2 switch it to 1.
