Openwater Fishing

One of the most popular fishing times is when the lake is not frozen. Fishing can be done from one of our many docks or from a boat or you can ask about our guiding services!

Ice Fishing

We typically see first ice on the lake around Thanksgiving and lasting until the first week of April. Contact us for the latest ice report and to be put on our occasional fishing email list!

We do provide ice fishing guiding services!
