Reservation Number : 26061
Property Name : Waterboo Lake: Bedrock Ranch
Reservation Date : 10/03/2020 PM -
Total Fish/Sizes : 4 small bass- 10in, 12in, 13in, 13in/3 small perch
Lures Used : Spinners, jerk baits, topwaters, square bills, chatter baits

Evening trip fished from around 4pm-7:15pm.  Circled the lake and then fished spots in the middle.  Caught all bass on the Whopper Plopper.  The perch hit the roadrunner and oddly enough the whopper plopper.  It was a windy evening driving in but this lake is well protected and was very calm.

I really like this lake because for it's proximity and it's scerenity.  The fishing was about what I expected based on my first trip even though I fished longer trying to find bigger fish.

The camping at this site left me disappointed this time around.  I'll send notes to the staff.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the update. This is an active cattle ranch and the lake serves as a water source for the cows. The cows kind of go poo where they want. Unfortunately, shy of fencing off the 2 acre camp area we can't keep them from pooing in the area.
