Trinity lakes offers 3 different lakes for you to fish on the same reservation. Two of the lakes, Arrowhead Lake (10 acres) and Goose Lake (5 acres) are located at one entrance and can be easily seen from the county road. The 3rd lake is a separate gate entrance that is about a mile away. Directions and site map will be with your reservation.

Arrowhead Lake is 10 acres and sits above Goose Lake. Arrowhead is a shallow lake with average depths of 6 foot with some water up to 12 foot deep. The coontail is heavy and covers approx 75% of the lake. If you like throwing frogs and weightless plastics this is a great lake for you. Only the 2-3 acres closest to the dam does not have coontail to the surface.

This lake holds lots of healthy 2-3 lb bass. Electrofishing survey picked up very few dinks and no giants, but a lake chocked full of 15-18 inch bass (2-3.5 lbs) Forage base is bluegill. We did not electrofish any catfish or crappie, but the owners said the lake has a small population of both. There is an improved boat launch area that does not have gravel. Gravel will be added by late Summer of 2020. So, if it is wet, do not attempt to launch your boat, use the provided 12 foot aluminum jon boat. We do not recommend launching anything larger than a 16 foot aluminum boat at the launch until the rock has been laid. We are not harvesting bass at this time.

Goose Lake is nearly a carbon copy of Arrowhead Lake, but about half the size. Same average water depth, average fish size and lots of coontail. We did shock a handful of crappie in this lake. There is a designed boat launch and we recommend not launching anything larger than a 16 foot aluminum jon boat. There is NOT a club jon boat for you to use. We are not harvesting bass at this time.

The third lake is 8 acres, and is named Comanche Lake (at a separate entrance) You will travel through a field of hay that is approx 1/2 mile until you reach the lake. Currently, the "path" to the lake is not existent, however, the owner has mowed a path for you. What this means is that the lake has seen little to no fishing pressure over the years and is full of nice bass. This lake has far less aquatic vegetation than the other two and thus will likely be more popular. In 2019 a 9.25 lb bass caught from this lake. There are a few unique things about this lake. There is a great fishing pier for members to use. There is what appears to be a mini concrete boat ramp, next to the fishing pier, but is was actually designed to be a walk down for horses to use to access the lake. We are now going to call it a mini boat ramp, suitable for members with small trailers such as those who tote a kayak or plastic boat. The ramp is just 8 feet wide and NOT suitable to launch a full jon boat trailer or larger. You can launch larger boats off the side of the lake, but there is NOT an improved area to do so. Please use caution and we do not recommend you attempt any boat with a gas powered motor, as the weight would be difficult to exit the lake. Jon boats with out gas motors should be fine. We are not harvesting bass at this time. There is a 12 foot Jon boat for members to use on this lake.

***Please note that the lake narrows and there are posted signs that say "no fishing" beyond this point". About 1/4 of the lake is in other person's property and we do NOT have access to fish the shallow back 2 acres. Please respect this and stay out.

All gates have a chain with a lock and snap. Please make sure you close the snap AND lock the gate. Remember you must change the gate code to get the lock to stay locked.
