Located four miles northeast of Republic, along Highway SR-21, this body of water has a year-round open season. Spring and early summer fishing for planted fall fingerling and net-pen reared Rainbow Trout should be good. Largemouth Bass are caught in summer and fall. Tiger Muskies are planted annually to help control the Northern Pikeminnow population and provide additional angling opportunity. Yellow Perch were illegally introduced around 2011, and have since become very abundant. There are no size restrictions or daily limit for Yellow Perch, and anglers are encouraged to harvest them.
Camping, picnicking, and public boat access are all available at Curlew Lake State Park and private resorts. The Curlew Lake State Park also provides access for ice fishing during the winter.
