Lake Anita Fishing

Lake Anita is a great fishing sport for those looking for largemouth bass, crappie, or bluegill. In early spring, you can find most fish in the northern regions of the lake’s end and arm. When warmer water temperatures arrive, the fish move behind the pontoon dock. You can find the largemouth bass near the brush and log piles. If you’re looking for a big black crappie, visit during summer and try casting small jigs two feet down with a bobber. To find the bluegill, head to the reefs and jutting piles of rocks near the campground. There are no boat motor restrictions, but a “no wake” speed is enforced. For pontoons, you’ll need to contact the park office to reserve a seasonal spot at the dock. You can launch boats using one of the two available ramps.
