Great local fishery
Avatar of deep88runnerdeep88runner

has plenty of places to fish from the bank ease of access to anywhere around due to a fully paved walkway all the way around the lake. also has a swim beach for this who don't fish. also a small canal running along the Northside that's decent fishing. There is a wide variety of species from trout to cats walleye bass perch bluegills stripped bass. good luck and tight lines!

Good fishing

Almost all of my bass have been caught in the surrounding waters. A great fishing location for family’s or by yourself. Keep an eye out for snakes. I have spotted two this summer. As long as you don’t mess with them they don’t mess with you. If you are thinking about trying this location, I would definitely recommend it!
