Great boating, but also a nice dam you can fish off of. Plenty of beautiful scenery to help you enjoy your day of fishing. Fish the stumps at the far end of the lake, nice structure and the pike population is growing.

      Yeah I've been there once a couple years ago on someone else's boat. I'm taking my boat up this time, which is an 18ft fiberglass so I'm hoping ...more to keep my lower unit intact going through the lake
