Curlew Lake
Photo of Curlew Lake

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 fry planted 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.

Camping, picnicking, and public boat access are all available at Curlew Lake State Park and private resorts.
