Fishing for largemouth bass, blue catfish, black crappie, white crappie, walleye, bluegill and northern pike at Lake Wanahoo.  A no-wake lake for fishing in calm waters, Lake Wanahoo offers a nice choice of species for anglers.  Northern Pike are catch-and-release only.  The lake has plenty of cover with brush, trees and rocky shorelines for fish to use as cover.  This 637-acre lake is located footsteps away from Spencer Hill.  Numerous fishing jetties, two of which are handicap accessible, provide anglers an expanded experience for fishing from the shore.  Additionally, much of the shoreline is accessible via roads and walkways.
