La Esmeralda Ranch

Lago Esmeralda is definitely one of the best bass fisheries in Mexico. The average bass is from 3 to 6 pounds; many of our guests have taken some giants - the lake record is over 12 pounds try . There is also a healthy population of small mouth bass; with the current lake record just under 7 pounds, more. The most popular baits are top water baits, worms and spinner baits. Just bring along your favorite tackle and try it out. We also have some gigantic catfish.

We have a catch and release policy that has been enforced during the past 12 years.

The lake capacity is at 100%  and we expect to have one of the best fishing seasons to date.

a 3,300 acre man made lake built in the San Rodrigo River- a big tributary to the Rio Grande River.
The lake has been featured in several sports and outdoors channels. Some of our guest celebrities have been Orlando Wilson, Jimmy Houston, Cajun Phil, Keith Warren and Ron Franklin with ESPN outdoors.

This lake is a great for bass clubs. Imagine fishing a bass club tournament where you catch fish all day long. Plus at any given time a wide variety of patterns work. This is definitely the place to go  if you want the entire club to catch fish.




La Esmeralda Ranch is a 17,000 acre Ranch just minutes from the border with Eagle Pass, Tx.  Is located just 18 miles west of Piedras Negras M�xico.

The guest house is overlooking the lake. It has electricity, running water, bathrooms, kitchen (with microwave) and facilities that sleep 15 people comfortably.

The launch ramp is cut into the bluff beside the house. At times it may require a 4 wheel drive vehicle to launch.
