Good Multispecies Lake with Camping

9 posts in this topic

Looking ahead here a few months,but looking for some good lake options that have camping available over in the South Central area. Any of the Faribult lakes come into play? Looking for something over Memorial Day weekend. Something with good fishing and other things to do for the kids.

We stayed at Keisler's a few years back which wasn't bad, but a tad expensive. Looking for someplace new to try.

Thanks.

Keisler's, would have been my first option. You can try Beaver Dam on Jefferson and German.

Beaver Dam is a nice place and you can fish Jefferson or German or Francis is only Five miles from there if you wanted to trailer the boat, Camp Del's in Waterville is also another place to look into, great fishing that time of year on Tetonka,

Other options would be Bray Park on Madison Lake, Sakatah State Park (also in Waterville) and I believe there are some camping opportunities in and around Shieldsville.

I second Otter on Madison and Bray Park. Memorial day is a great weekend to be on Madison for multi-species. Walleyes can be had and usually the big slabs and bull-gills are shallow and aggressive.

Thanks for the feedback. Right now I think I'm leaning towards Bray Park. I also found a couple on Roberds Lake as well, particularily Roberds Lake Resort & Campground and Shady Acre's. Any thoughts on these two places and also Roberds Lake as a whole.

Thanks.

Camp Dels in Waterville is great for kids (lots to do) & access to Sakatah/Tetonka, but it is $$$$.

I hope they continue to keep Bray park clean. It seems to have improved since they put in the fishing piers, but before that, the rip rap sections were strewn with beer cans, diapers, cardboard, food, etc. We had just moved from just north of the cities at that time and we were surprised at how littered the place was. It doesn't take much to carry your garbage out. IT just makes our area look like a bunch of rednecks when we don't hump out our litter....

Both of those resorts are well run by local families. Roberds is a good multi species lake. The lake does green up the later in the year you go. But most lakes down here do.

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
