Waco Creek Lake is 40 acres but fishes much larger with lots of points and structure. This lake is a fisherman's dream and is considered one of the clubs signature properties. It has depths up to 25 feet with trees, rocks and vegetation throughout. This lake has been stocked with Florida bass. The largest fish caught to date is 13.5 lbs. This lake consistently produces multiple double digit bass every year.

The fishing day rate includes a boat already furnished with foot controlled trolling motors and padded swivel seats. Up to 3 boats are available. Lodging is also available (see info on right side of page).

Site is limited during hunting season. Placing a reservation through the reservation system (during hunting season) is not a guarantee of availability. After placing your reservation, PWF will contact you personally to confirm your outing.

MANDATORY!!! Remove all bass 16" 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.

Please note that your fishing reservation is only for the date on your reservation. You may not fish “for a couple of hours” the night before or the morning after your reservation time frame. Failure to adhere to this will result in termination of your membership. Please know we are firm on this. No exceptions or “I was unaware” of this request will result in termination of your membership.

Requirements

There is a 2 adult minimum to fish this site.

No 1/2 day reservations unless you book an entire day. (Ex. Book all day Saturday and half-day Sunday)

To power the Minn Kota Fortrex trolling motor, use the toggle switch on the side of the foot-control. The toggle switch has positions for momentary or continuous power to the unit.

If you are unfamiliar with bow mounted hand or foot control trolling motors please call the club office for tips to make your day on the water a lot more enjoyable.

***To bring the front trolling motor back up you may need to step on the bracket mount to relieve tension on the locking mechanism. Do this before bringing the boat to or near shore and use the rear trolling motor when returning the boat or beaching the boat to avoid damage to the front trolling motor

MANDATORY!!! Remove all bass 16" 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.
