Tips from Lawrence Park:
  • Beginning Anglers should have the most luck with Live Bait such as Minnows and Worms.   WORMS are available here.

  • In hot weather, fish from a boat in the deeper waters away from the shore, since the fish will seek cooler water. Fishing away from the shore will also help you to avoid weeds.

  • Rent a Fishing Boat from:  Thursday - Monday  7am to 7pm with Life Jackets and Gas included. (Closed Tuesday & Wednesday for 2023)

PLEASE NOTE:   We NO LONGER offer Fishing Licenses, Canoe Rentals or Camping.
