Dry Lake

Located about 2 miles north of Manson.  Dry Lake is also known as Grass Lake. With a maximum depth of only 11 feet, this shallow lake currently offers some good-size Largemouth Bass, plus an over-abundance of Yellow Perch, Bluegill, Pumpkinseed Sunfish, Black Crappie and some large Brown Bullheads. In recent years, this lake has also been stocked annually each fall with catchable sized Brown and Tiger Trout to aid in the reduction of panfish populations.  Fishing will be good in April and May if spring weather has been warm, but difficult in mid-summer due to excessive emergent vegetation.

Access is off of Green Ave. and Dry lake Road.

BE RESPECTFUL OF PRIVATE PROPERTY The signed access to this lake is across private property and is allowed due to the generosity of private landowners. We ask all those accessing the lake to be respectful of private property owners and their property rights.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good
Besides two primitive launching areas much of the shoreline is made up of bulrush, sub-aquatic cattail and terrestrial Russian olive, making access very limited.
