Requirements

Active cattle ranch, keep all gates closed that were closed and leave all gates open that were open.

**There is active water pumping taking place on the lake until April 20, 2018.**


MANDATORY!!! Remove all bass 14" and under and all crappie at this site. Report the total number of each species removed back to the club office through the online reservation system after your outing.

***The lake is closed due to excessive aquatic vegetation. At this time we do not have a time frame for correcting the issue. Folks it is very expensive to treat excessive aquatic vegetation. Substantially more expensive that traditional herbicides on land.***

BlackJack Ranch sits on a gently rolling 1300 acre cattle and red deer ranch. As you enter the electric gate you will notice red deer and other exotics in various high fence pens ranging from a few acres to pens larger than 50 acres. This 15 acre lake is 20 feet deep and has rarely been fished over the years, by anyone but family. However, the owner has been harvesting the past few years and the fish are now in great shape! There is a huge pier which is great for the kids. The largest fish to date is 10lb 4 oz.

There is a jon boat available on site, and bank fishing is excellent.

**There is active water pumping taking place on the lake until April 20, 2018.**

MANDATORY!!! Remove all bass 14" and under and all crappie at this site. Report the total number of each species removed back to the club office through the online reservation system after your outing.
