Guide To Fishing At Liberty Reservoir
AKA: Liberty Lake
Big bass, walleye and stripers draw anglers to Liberty Reservoir, a 3,100-acre lake in the north-central part of the state. The fishery is managed for both warm-water and cold-water species, including bass, catfish, crappie, walleye, trout, sunfish, perch and striped bass.
Boating is restricted to rowing, paddling, or battery-powered motors, which helps limit the fishing pressure. There are over 80 miles of shoreline, some of which is strewn with brush and lay-downs, which the fish use for cover. Numerous access points around the lake are favorable for fishing from the bank. Kayaks and canoes are popular here, as are car-toppers. Two campgrounds are nearby for those who enjoy camping.
