***DO NOT HARVEST ANY BASS AT THIS SITE. You may still remove any crappie or catfish caught and report them to the club office through the online reservation system after your outing***

Please note the big lake, Bluebonnet Ridge (32 acre lake) is currently covered in aquatic vegetation and only 25% of the lake is fishable. Your are able to completely fish the smaller 8 acre lake, Mesquite Ridge.

During times of wet weather we recommend that you park at the top of the hill and walk 200 yards to the boat launch area. The all weather road ends at the top of the hill and navigating the hill (no road, just a path) may provide issues to those without 4WD. Get out and use your best judgment before attempting to drive down the hill. Driving down will likely provide no issues, but climbing the hill in wet weather may pose a problem. In wet weather you may want to stick with the 8 acre lake only.
Two for the price of one; fishing at Ennis Bluebonnet Ridge allows you to fish the largest of the lakes at this property as well as the smaller 8 lake called Mesquite Valley. You are welcome to fish either or both lakes during your reservation. They are 300 yards apart; separated by a small ridge. Don't miss the sushi, yes sushi, at the Bristol General Store. Read more about this unique place at the bottom of the description.

Bluebonnet Ridge is a 32 acre soil conservation lake with lots of solid; well fed bass. The lake was built in the late 60's and has been home to numerous double-digit bass. Most of the lake is less than 6 feet deep and the water is usually very clear. Aquatic vegetation covers approximately 75% of the lake so fishing is primarily limited to the deepest 6 to 8 acres of water. Grass Carp have been added and we expect to see a reduction of vegetation from winter die off and the introduction of grass carp for 2020. There is an improved rock ramp so launching 17' aluminum boats and smaller should not be a problem.

Mesquite Ridge is a deep 8 acre lake with limited vegetation and a covered dock. Test fishing results resulted in a plentiful amount of 2-4 lb bass. This lake is great for those looking to bank fish or to fish off a covered dock. There is not an improved boat ramp, so launching only small boats is recommended. Unless you have 4x4 we would not recommend launching anything heavier than a jon boat.

About 5 miles from the lake is one of the more unusual sites we have seen. A general store with a restaurant in the TINY community of Bristol. Having a restaurant within a general store is in itself not unusual but having a sushi restaurant is. Moreover, the sushi is outstanding. In fact, on Friday and Saturday evening the place is packed with folks who drive 40 miles south from Dallas. We have included a current menu in the pictures section of this property. Please note that the hours are a bit unusual and subject to change. As of October 2019 Sushi is available on Wednesday evening and all day Friday-Sunday. For those of who, who are crazy, and don't like sushi, they have breakfast sandwiches in the morning (opens at 7:00 AM) and hamburgers and chicken sandwiches for lunch. We recommend you call 972 666 2400 for hours before you go.

DO NOT HARVEST ANY BASS AT THIS SITE.
