      Life On the Water

      This large reservoir is relatively shallow, averaging around three to four feet in most places. However, the large surface area leaves room for many activities!

      Kayaking is a popular pastime here, given the many small bays and islands in the middle of the water. Before you head out on the water, don't forget to bring a rod and reel!

      Residents and locals love to fish here because of the variety of species you can find. Anglers should expect to reel in largemouth bass, perch, various panfish, northern pike, and tiger muskies.
