Experience bass fishing on a whole new level.

"Love the variety of lakes and the fact that you can book the entire property. A great escape offering wilderness like solitude. The ability to fish at your own pace. No fighting over spots. My wife, family, friends and nephew all love the experience. Many locations have lodging and/or camping. Overall, the fishing is far superior to public lakes with guides....and for less money. " - Mike

We have some of the finest private fishing lakes in the country, providing opportunities for life long fishing memories. Our lakes are managed and stocked, ensuring the quality of fishing is of the highest level.

Let's face it, you have options on where you can fish and how you want to spend your time and money fishing. There are lots of public lakes, but your chances of catching a lot of fish are slim unless you hire a guide. The average cost of a fishing guide has risen to over $550 a day.

MEMBER TESTIMONIALS

"It doesn't get any better than this. PWF has great owners & managers, the properties are terrific, new properties are always being added and you get the lake to yourself for the day. Always good numbers plus big size often. Plus traveling around on the back roads of north Texas and Oklahoma is a lot of fun. This is also something I do with my son on a regular basis who is also a member."- Rick

"As a 10yr club member, I appreciate the opportunity to fish on private, well-managed lakes, enjoy meeting other members, and putting together group trips to one of the Oklahoma properties. You will not have a better fishing experience than you will with PWF. Not for numbers, and not for quality!"- Zack

"Private Water Fishing gives you access to the best private lakes in Texas, period. I've been a fisherman since I was a kid, but I found a new passion for bass fishing upon joining PWF. The amount of care that goes into managing the fisheries, and in turn, the quality of the bass, are unparalleled. In the two years I've been a member, I've caught dozens of bass over 5 pounds, several bass over 7 pounds, and the 9.66 pounder attached to this review. Whether you want to catch a ton of fish with your kids, or treat a client or a friend to catching their new personal best, this is the place to do it"Harrison

"My husband, daughter and myself love Private Water Fishing! Since we joined a few years ago we have enjoyed ourselves exploring the many different properties they have to offer; everything from high game fence ranches to small family owned farms, I think they have around 60 properties! We usually fish about 5 - 10 times a year and it is so great being able to almost "guarantee" a great day of fishing!"- Cindy

"If y’all want to enjoy the best fishing adventures you ever had, call Private Water Fishing. Best thing since sliced bread! You have the ranch to yourself, most locations have a boat to use. Y’all will catch fish.just let the staff at Private Water Fishing know if you want a shot at a trophy or just spend the day catching fish. Great family activity, wonderful settings, safe environment and a ton of great memories."- Bob

"I'm a person that loves to fish and teach new anglers how to fish. I highly recommend PWF. I've taken my 84 year old grandmother and plenty more family and friends fishing at PWF lakes and they all had a blast. I've never taken anyone fishing at PWF lakes that didn't leave with a life long experience that they will continue to talk about for years.

I enjoy the peace and quite and only sharing the lake with the guest I bring with me. If you love fishing, love the peace and quite with family and friends you should give PWF a try. The fish are not going to just jump in the boat however you will have a better opportunity of landing quality fish than on a public lake.

The lakes side cabins are also awesome for a great family getaway. PWF staff are 2nd to none when it comes to customer service. PWF staff has always been available for me, even when my truck was stuck in the mud at one of PWF properties, to answering questions about new lakes I've never fished before. PWF has been great for me since 2007 when I joined"- Rodrick

"We've been members of Private Water Fishing (PWF) for 7 years and have not regretted one minute of it. Back when my son was in high school, close to moving off to college, I really wanted to find something that we could dive in to together and spend some quality (and quantity – that’s what matters) time together on. I had my eye on PWF for quite some time and decided to pull the trigger. Let me tell you – don’t wait – do it for yourself, do it for your family. Without the major investment of a bass boat and tow vehicle, and without having to fight any weekend crowds, we were able to jump in and start finding quality bass waters right away. Fast forward – my son is already out of college and on his way to other things – I am so grateful for the time that we shared on PWF waters. And the kicker, and an even bigger blessing, is that my wife jumped right in after my son moved out and has more than thoroughly enjoyed joining me on many, many PWF outings each year. In fact, she is the real fisherman – she bags a bigger bass than I do on almost every outing. If you are on the fence about it, don’t hesitate. The ownership/management always handle everything with care and professionalism. The pricing is fair – this is not solely a rich man’s game, nor is it a giveaway (it wouldn’t work that way). The ranches and lakes are private, peaceful, and promise a good outing, whether you load the boat with a big catch or not. In fact, that is a huge part of the fun – it is still fishing – it is still a challenge! You’ve got to observe and adapt with each trip. I can’t wait to book another outing!"- PJ
