This 60 acre, 25 foot deep east Texas tea colored water lake was built in 2009 by the same engineering firm that built Lake Fork. The lake has lots of brush, mostly under water, and was built with the fisherman in mind. Each year the lake receives additional forage (baitfish) for the bass. Some years it is tilapia, other years threadfin shad or bluegill. With its proximity (just 80 miles east of downtown Dallas) and great fishing we expect this lake to be one of the most popular in the club.

There is a 16-foot-wide concrete boat ramp that can launch full size bass boats. The lake boasts a covered boat house with a 16-foot pontoon boat for members to use. In addition, there are two 14-foot jon boats for members to use. DO NOT DRAG JON BOATS ON BOAT RAMP.

Please note you must be willing to harvest the small bass to fish this site. If you do not want to harvest the small bass AND report your harvest you will not be allowed to fish this lake. We have lots of lakes that do not require harvesting. MANDATORY!!! Remove all bass 14” and under at this site. Report the total number of each species removed, back to the club office through the online reservation system after your outing.

You must bleach your live wells

Please note there are two locks at the front gate. You must lock the PWF combination lock through the shackle of the keyed lock. Failure to do this locks the cattle lessor out of the property and really causes big issues for PWF staff. Please take the time to understand how to lock the two locks together. (We have provided a video to help. Please see the video in the pictures/video section of this property.)

If you need additional tackle or want to take a lunch break; Lake Fork Trophy Lures, a full service tackle store and a dozen restaurants are less than 10 minutes from the front gate of the ranch.

The lake requires a two person minimum. The lake requires a full day minimum.
