There are a number of lakes and ponds located throughout Stonebridge Ranch. One of the most visible is Stonebridge Lake, which is located next to the Beach & Tennis Club at 6201 Virginia Parkway. The lake dam features a walking sidewalk with some of the best views in our community. Residents can easily access this area by walking from a surrounding neighborhood or parking in the lots at the Beach & Tennis Club.
CATCH & RELEASE FISHING
A number of the lakes and ponds within our community are stocked for fishing. Species found here include Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Redear Sunfish, Channel Catfish, White Crappie, White Bass, Green Sunfish, Bullhead Catfish, and Inland Silversides. To enjoy our catch-and-release program, please pay attention to these regulations:
- Residents may fish from the banks of Stonebridge Lake, the three Wellington Ponds, Quail Creek Pond, Millard Pond, Fountainview Pond, and La Cima Lake (see addresses below).
- Each pond designated for catch-and-release fishing is marked with signage to that effect.
- Non-designated ponds should not be used for fishing; they serve primarily to provide storm-water retention and natural beauty.
- As when enjoying any Stonebridge Ranch amenity, remember to carry Stonebridge Ranch ID with you. Guests of residents may fish from the designated ponds, but only when accompanied by an ID-carrying resident.
- If you have questions about water areas or if you observe beaver activity, please call the association office at 214-733-5800.

WATERCRAFT ON STONEBRIDGE LAKE
During Beach Club open hours, Stonebridge Ranch residents may rent association-owned paddleboats and other watercraft on Stonebridge Ranch Lake. To do so, use your resident ID to enter the main Beach Club gate, where you’ll pay the rental fee ($2 for 30 minutes) and sign a waiver. Next, you’ll visit the lifeguards at the pier gate to pick up your life jackets. Children under 12 must be accompanied by someone age 18 or older. You may use the sailboat only if you have previous sailing experience.
During Beach Club open hours, residents with ID are also permitted to launch their own kayaks and sailboats at no charge from the pier. To do so, use your resident ID to enter the main Beach Club gate and alert the lifeguards to your request. They can help you access the driveway connecting to the pier. (The driveway is for loading and unloading only.) You’ll need to sign a waiver at the main Beach Club gate to access the driveway/pier and launch your own craft.
