With an abundance of coves, points and fingers, this lake has over 500 miles of shoreline, giving a wide variety of fish species a great residence. Bass, crappie, walleye, bream and catfish draw a lot of attention from local anglers. Big striped bass also swim in these waters, along with hybrid wipers and sunfish. Cranfield Recreation Area has a handicapped-accessible fishing pier. Marinas, rental boats, restaurants, convenience stores, bait, campgrounds, RV hookups and boat launch ramps are all conveniently located around the lake.
