Hi all, first post. im looking for private lakes or large, well stocked ponds around mclennan county. im more than willing to pay for access or a lease that will let me fish year round. anyone done something like this ? does anyone have a url or magazine or some other resource that lists fishing leases ? im tired of fishing big lakes and crowds. i want to fish like i did when i was a kid, on a pond!

Good luck toward finding a pond.  I did some of this with my dad and uncle in Oklahoma and it is nice.

Deo,

Did you ever find a pond? I have been trying to do the same thing in southwest Austin. Yes, I could go to the lake, but I would rather have a small, well managed pond to drive up to and fish with my kids.

Over the 18 months I have heard more and more people talk about this and yet I haven't heard of many such "fishing clubs" for lack of a better word outside of the major metro areas.

*sigh* Had a little spot like that when I was a kid.  Went almost every day for at least a few minutes.  Wish I could find one like that myself for my boys.

Deo, look up McLennan County's website, then go to their Parks and Recreation Dept.   If it lists parks, look on TPWD's website to see if they stocked the ponds. That's how I found some around here.

check this link:

There are some places listed for your county, scroll down the page, there is a 30 acre lake that could be promising.

Good Luck!!

There are a lot Dean, but if I just want to fish for a few hours while RD is at work, I need someplace close, you know how driving is around here! I found three 9 and 10 acre ponds in a park in Richardson near me. They are catch and release, but hey, I just want to fish!

TPWD's website is great for finding some nice ponds, as well as telling you with what and when they stocked them.

I too wanted a small well managed pond I could go to, and I found it in Jacksonville TX. I bought a small fishing cabin on a 200 acre hunting/fishing club. It has a 24 acre bass pond on it where we have caught multiple 10+ lbs. Bass. There is a boat ramp and 4 docks to fish from. You must be a member or be with a member to hunt or fish. There are a total of 35 members, but really only about 10 or less use it. It is a great weekend place. Unfortunately, we are selling it. My wife and I had our first born 3 months ago. Let me know if you are Interested in it. We are asking 35k. Email me at jamesrmorris02@yahoo.com if you are interested.
