Fish Lake has 440 surface acres (a natural lake augmented by a dam). The lake’s biggest fish are often found in the old lake channel. The bank between the two campgrounds is a good place for youngsters to fish. Fishing seems to slow noticeably following full moons. The lake freezes solid many years and can be fished through the ice.

Fishing Description: 

Legal-sized rainbow trout are stocked throughout summer. Excess steelhead are occasionally stocked.
Naturally reproducing brook trout are also available. Trout can reach 8 lbs. and exceed 20 inches.

Fishing Tips, Tactics, How-To info:
