This lake has truly taken off since it was redone! With great cover and and catch and release laws the bass are thriving. This is a fairly shallow lake, however it gives the opportunity to fish various types of baits. The only downside to this lake is accessibility. Unless you have a kayak or smaller vessel it is hard to access the best spots on the lake. Overall I would highly recommend this lake to everyone!

been my go to spot for years
Avatar of captamericuh

decent spot lots of land for a couple groups. snags change every year so you really have to get a feel for the spot. towards pages dairy tends to be a sauger spot for God knows what reason. caught my biggest walleye here at the point of the peninsula. beware of sandcastle staff though wouldn't be lighting fires too early 😉. when it floods great to fish off the big cement block by the creek you will get carp and cats for days.
