Henderson - Dogwood Lakes Estate: West Lake
This gorgeous property has 2 lakes. The bigger lake is known as East Lake and is a 22-acre lake and the smaller 12-acre lake is called the 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.
West Lake is a 12 acres lake. This lake has produced the largest fish caught on the property and boasts a catch of a 14 lb 6 oz fish. Each year the lakes are stocked with Tilapia, and you will notice the giant fish feeders floating on the lake. The owner has spared little expense in managing this trophy fishery. This smaller West Lake produces more fish over 10lbs than the larger lake, but at the larger lake you are likely to catch more fish in the 3 to 8 lb range.
Your reservation includes the use of one 15 foot jon boat with seats and hand control trolling motor and battery. Boat seats are in the trash can by the launch. Do not attempt to start the big engine for any reason! This lake requires a 2 adult person minimum.
While there is no lodging, Henderson is only 6 miles away and there are several motels including a newer Holiday Inn Express.
No 1/2 day reservations unless you have booked a whole day at either lake.
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.
