Created by a War of 1812 veteran to generate water power for his mill, this 292-acre impoundment averages 11 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 37 feet.
A long, winding shoreline, small islands, and large weed beds make this lake a super warm-water fihery. The state stocks about 600 9-inch tiger muskies each year. They grow up to 40 inches and take large minnows, crankbaits, and bucktail spinners. The authorities also stock walleyes occasionally, most recently in 2002 when 5,500 4-inchers were released.
Key species: Tiger muskie, northern pike, walleye, black bass, black crappie, yellow perch, and sunfish
