Critzer Lake is 220 surface acres with a maximum depth of 50 feet. It is 2.4 miles long and has a large quantity of standing trees and habitat below the surface, so please adhere to the no wake policy. This is a fishing lake only not open to recreational boating. In 2007, the lake was impounded and stocked with walleye, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, channel catfish, bluegill, redear, sunfish and black crappie. Fishing has been very good generally for all species. Largemouth bass anglers have been especially successful. Because of the construction parameters, this is primarily a boat lake.
