Garrisons Lake, DE

Bass, crappie, sunfish and perch populate the waters of Garrisons Lake, a 86-acre impoundment located in the central part of the state 3 miles south of Smyrna. About 2 miles of shoreline, much with aquatic vegetation, is home to baitfish and predators alike.

Shoreline for fishing from the bank is available, on the south side of the pond, near the boat launch ramp as well as the area nearby the north parking lot. A fishing pier and walkway across the dam is also open to fishing. Kayaks, car-top boats and canoes are a nice way to casually fish this fertile fishery.
