      On the Water Fun

      Lake McKusick spans 48 acres, offering residents plenty of space to enjoy recreation and relaxation. Popular activities include kayaking, canoeing, swimming, fishing, and taking in the views.

      The lake is a great fishing spot for canoe fishing since it helps avoid cattails and reeds that might inhibit shore fishing. Anglers can find black bullhead, black crappie, bluegill, green sunfish, hybrid sunfish, pumpkinseed, yellow perch, and golden shiner.

      The St. Croix River is less than five minutes away and offers great fishing. Anglers can expect to find walleye, sauger, and smallmouth bass, among others.

      The river also offers beautiful opportunities for kayaking! There are over 21 downstream miles that pass through multiple state parks.
