Fishing on Our Lake

photo by Jen

The lake was built by my great uncle in 1959. It was once a cow pasture with a running stream. It's around 42 acres and deep. No motors, except electric are allowed. There are rowboats, sailboats, paddleboats, canoes, kayaks, pontoon boats, and others with both permanent residents and "summer people" swimming and fishing in the summer. The fish include crappies, largemouth bass, chain pickerel, pumpkinseed and redear sunfish, bluegill, yellow perch and both bullhead and channel catfish.
