This 27-acre lake was completely drained in 2017 and then stocked in 2018. This allowed for new habitats including old cars, brush piles, and large laydowns around the lake. The lake was stuffed with forage that included fathead minnows, red ear sunfish, copper nose bluegill, and threadfin shad. Bass was added 6 months later with the finest genetics in the country.

There are two Jon boats for members to use and a concrete boat ramp that can launch full-size bass boats.


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.
