This lake is owned by the City of Ft.Scott and is open to all boating/recreation and fishing. This lake is enrolled into the Community Fisheries Assistance Program. A city fishing permit is no longer required. There is a double lane boat ramp, two floating docks, and toilets on the northwest side. There are several areas managed for shoreline fishing as well as floating fish feeders to note if boat fishing. After a rain get to the inflow areas with good line and some worms, prepared bait--channel catfish can be great. Go have fun. Remember- Wear a Lifejacket and Reach - Throw - Don t Go. Much of the lake's shoreline is housing developments. This lake has quite a reputation for large flathead and channel catfish, largemouth and spotted bass are abundant also.
