Wells Lake (Connected to Cannon Lake)

Recommended Posts

I am looking for information regarding Wells Lake in Rice County. I have noticed on the DNR website that it is fairly shallow, and due to this, I am wondering if it is a decent recreational/fishing lake. I am also wondering if you can boat from Cannon Lake to Wells lake at low water periods? Any information would be greatly appreciated!!.

You can always get over there from Cannon, the water does not change much on this body of water. You have to go under a bridge (i think CR 12 but not sure) and there are always tons of people fishing around the bridge. It is a really really shallow lake, you will have trouble finding 6 feet. I have seen a few big northerns caught near the bridge in Wells, and I know for a fact that it is just full of stripers, but I always catch them from shore locations, I don't know where they are in the main body of water. I have caught 13 different species of fish in it, but mostly from shore, as when i am in the boat it is almost always in Cannon. A good spot is right where the river goes out of Wells, if you are good you can find a spot that is 7-8 feet, and this is a great spot. I would think it would be a good catfish spot, but I have never tried it. There are a few cats in there. Another good spot is under the freeway (35) bridge. For the most part though I wouldn't waste my time with the lake, and I would stick to Cannon. Hope this helps, Brian-
