Looking for a REEL good time!

by Lake Jennings Staff


  • We stocked the lake with 1,000 lbs. of catfish the week of June 3rd and another 1,000 lbs. this week too! This brings us to a total of 4,000 lbs. for the season so far! There have even been a few albino catfish in the deliveries! Come on out to boat or shore fish and try your luck on reeling in a few!

  • Night Fishing is every Friday and Saturday until Labor Day. Remember to bring your full size lantern. They are required after 8:00 p.m.

  • Catfish were caught over in Hermit Cove and Shadow Cove biting on cut mackerel and chicken livers. Hog Wild Blood dip bait has also been productive this week.

  • Redear were biting over in Sentry Cove and off the T-dock on nightcrawlers. Try cutting them in half--that's been the secret lately!

  • Bass around the boat dock were caught using Rapala lures and purple rubber worms. Anglers were catching them in Half Moon Cove in the afternoon using nightcrawlers as well.

  • Spring Photo Contest Winners for 2019 have been announced! Click here to view all the beautiful photos! Congratulations to Randy Siegel for First Place!

  • The lake will be open for boating, fishing, and family fun every day in July click here! Looking forward to seeing you out on the lake kayaking, row-boating and paddleboating. It's gonna be a great Summer!
