Surrounded by spectacular scenery, our sparkling lakes offer excellent fishing. Each stillwater has its own secrets that help provide endless challenges. While most of our lakes are catch and release, your memories are yours to cherish for a lifetime.

Otter, Muskrat, Beaver and Squirrel Ponds

Range in size from half to three-quarters of an acre.

The stillwaters of Otter, Muskrat, Beaver and Squirrel are the ideal learning ground for beginners. Each spring-fed coldwater fishery supports many trophy-sized trout large enough to excite even the most seasoned fly fisher. These ponds permit you to take two fish per visit.

Turtle and Rainbow Lakes

Turtle Lake measures four acres and Rainbow Lake measures one and a half acres.

In the cool waters of Turtle and Rainbow lakes, abundant numbers of hungry trout, largemouth bass, bluegill and pumpkinseed thrive. These fish provide a challenge to any fisher and a test for their equipment when they’re finally hooked.

Gosling and Split Rock Lakes

Lake Gosling measures seven acres and Split Rock measures half an acre.

Lake Gosling and Split Rock are fed by strong springs and run-off waters, making these cool waters the perfect habitat for trout and hybrid striper to feed and mature. These lakes are the ideal places for you to learn and improve your stillwater skills over big trout.
