Lake Mendota is known for its trophy-sized smallmouth bass, walleye, and northern pike. Anglers come to fish the 9,781-acre, 83-feet-deep lake that is also home to largemouth bass, catfish, crappie, muskie, white bass, perch, and sunfish. You can access the more than 21 miles of shoreline at one of the 12+ parks or landings. There are six places that rent boats for fishing or recreation, pontoons, canoes, kayaks, and jet skis. The lake is very inviting for those seeking to fish or simply enjoy a day of fun on the water.
