The largest lake in the region with great amenities and no boat motor restrictions, Lyman Lake State Park attracts anglers, as well as campers and water skiers year-round. Spring 2018 population surveys found large numbers of walleye and channel catfish throughout the lake. Try fishing for largemouth bass, walleye and sunfish along rocky or weedy areas of the lake. Predatory fish like walleye and bass should be concentrated in the deeper, northern areas near the dam. Fish for catfish with nightcrawlers or chicken livers on bottom at night. Catch carp with corn or dough baits. Lyman Lake has filled significantly since the low water of 2018 changing fish behavior and habitat. Try new techniques in new areas if your usual methods aren’t working.
