A productive fishing pond stocked with trout awaits you on a visit to Idyllwild Preserve, while a 41-acre man-made fishing lake teeming with channel catfish, largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie and carp is what you’ll find visiting Lake Minden. And speaking of catfish, Wilderness Lakes is all about the catfish, some of which have been known to run 12 pounds or more.
Lake of the Springs‘ setting with sparkling blue water, surrounded by oak and pine trees, can make anybody love to fish. Look for trout, bass, catfish, bluegill, and crappie here.
