It resembles cottage country, and the awesome part is, it’s close to home!

Fish in Lake Niapenco for northern pike, walleye, largemouth bass, small mouth bass, white and black crapie, yellow perch, pumpkin seed, rock bass, brown bullhead, and carp. This area features a boat launch and a wheel chair accesible fishing pier. Many fishing derby’s are held each year including our Annual Ice Fishing Derby and Annual Spring Fishing Derby.
A catch and release policy is presently in effect for walleye (pickerel), northern pike, and bass. This policy will help develop a sustainable fish population in the reservoir.
Annual Spring Fishing Derby held on May 5th, 2013 was a great success. See you all next year!
