Rainbow Lake

Rainbow Lake (or Vic Meyers Lake as it's commonly known) is located just east of Park Lake.  Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout, and Brown Trout fingerlings are planted annually into Rainbow Lake.  This opening day (late-April) lake produces robust 12+ inch trout by the opener.  Rainbow Lake is small and fished mostly by shoreline anglers.  However, fishing from a float tube or pontoon boat is very effective as well.
