Dry Lake
Photo of Dry Lake

Dry Lake (96 acres): Located about a mile north of Manson.  Dry Lake is also known as Grass Lake. Year-round open fishing season. 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 Sunfish, Crappie and some large Brown Bullheads. 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.
