Canoeing & Fishing Our Five Acre Lake

Our lake is also a great spot for leisurely canoeing.  We allow only non-powered boats to take to the water, so leave that electric trolling motor and outboard engine behind.  Looking for a nice place to teach your son, daughter, or friend how to canoe without worrying about paddles floating down the river?  Our lake is calm and secluded from distraction created by others on the river.  A great location to teach them the basics.

Please remember that swimming is strictly prohibited.

There are probably better fishing holes that you know of (every fisherman has at least one secret spot, and then another they'll never tell about), but we have a nice lake and there are fish in it.  Please consult our
Rules & Regulations for details for lake fishing.
