Lake Skinner Recreation Area

Lake Skinner is a beautiful lake with a rich diversity of plant and animal life surrounding its shores. The lake not only offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, an easily accessible walking trail, and a new amphitheater it also offers some of the area’s best fishing. Whether fishing from shore, using your personal boat or renting one of the boats offered at the marina you are sure to have a great time trying to catch one of the many species of fish found at Lake Skinner. Angler’s can try their hand with some Powerbait for the Trout around Ramp-2. They’re stocked every other week during the winter months. For those impatient fishermen during the fall months the striper are usually boiling all over the lake and using any lure that looks like a Shad is the key. For those who just want to float on the water all day and take in some sun, point your boat towards the inlet and cast away. For those with the craving, Carp can be found off the point past the marina, and if a kitty is more your liking Catfish are prevalent all around the South Bay in late spring, summer, and early fall. Cat’s are stocked every other week during the summer months. Along with carp and catfish the lake also offers Bluegill and a few worms on the hook may be the best to land a few them on a nice afternoon on the lake on the southshore. For those sportsmen who love a good challenge grab a Nightcrawler or two and head out on the lake to hunt down a Largemouth Bass or two. The fish are out there, do you have what it takes to catch them? Come on out and give it a shot and see if you can land that record fish. Our operating hours are 6am to sunset; we’ll see you on the lake.
