About Lake Frances

The building of Lake Frances started in 1994 in efforts to reduce occasional flooding to the Fort Scott Area, and was finished in 1997.

There was a one-year delay in the construction of the lake due to an area that was considered wet lands about the size of an average house.

The permanent pool is 43 acres. During the wet season it swells to nearly 80 acres. It is a privately owned lake and is located on a 160 acre area.

The lake facility has a concrete boat ramp and dock.

The lake was stalked with finger-length fish in 1998. The fish caught today are getting large. The Bass reach 22" in length and the larger Catfish being caught are 14lbs. The Croppie are reaching 1 1/2lbs.

Lake Frances is a privately owend, family operated lake. No fishing license is required. Private funds were used to stock the lake with fish.
