With a healthy population of bass, crappie, catfish and stripers, High Rock Lake is a very fertile fishery. This productive, 15,180-acre lake in the north-central part of the state has 365 miles of shoreline. Whether you choose to fish from shore, or navigate these waters in a boat, canoe or kayak, you will have in front of you some of the best fishing water in the area. Marinas on the lake provide boaters goods and services to make your day on the lake a pleasure. Including, if you so desire, boat rentals. Fishing tackle, bait, groceries, beverages and ice are also available. The lake is lined with boat docks which provide cover for shallow bass and other species. There are plenty of creek channels, ledges, humps and drop-offs to fish when the fish move off the bank. The water is stained year round, so be prepared to fish spinnerbaits and flashy lures.
