Lake Patti Sue Set To Open In Houston County
After five years of planning and construction, Lake Patti Sue will finally open in western Houston County. The lake, which will offer fishing, camping and a renovated house to host events, will open to the public on March 14th.
Two years ago, Nathan Mathis had the lake stocked with bass, catfish, bream and shellcrackers. On March 14th, Mathis will open the property at 6 a.m.
It will cost $15 per day to fish on the lake, and there are limits to the amount of fish that can be caught and kept. For those who wish to use a boat on the lake, it will cost $20 per boat. Only non-gasoline powered boats are allowed on the lake.
Mathis is offering people a sneak peak at the property on March 7th, hosting a concert with country music artist Chris Janson. The event will begin at 6 p.m. and tickets are $25 per person.
Lake Patti Sue is named after Mathis' daughter, who died in 1995. The property is located one mile south of the Geneva-Houston County line on County Road 9 at 3854 Cumbie Road.
