Can this lake be fished from Shore? If so how can you access the shoreline? I know that they do hold some Amatuer Bass tournments on this lake. So I know it's fished, but I can't seem to figure out how to get there without haveing to walk through woods.

As to fishing it, it can be fished from shore. The best places to try is what we use the call the penninsula - at the beginning of Riverdale Ave. Park near the pumping staition and walk through the woods towards the main part of the lake, you will see a portion of land that sticks out in the lake creating a sort of pool - not far. Used to be great Pickeral there.
The other place to try is near the "channel". Follow the trials back into the woods near the pennisula as if you were walking towards the old Budweiser factory on the other side of the lake - when you walk as far as you can you will run into it. This main channel runs from the Dam out towards the other small lakes towards Spotswood. Right near this channel are small canals that run into he channel - these smaller canals used to be very goods for bass and pickeral.
Hope this helps

I too have very nice memories of that lake. I caught my very first fish there when I was 11 years old in an area we used to call the cove at the end of Riverdale Ave before it turns into a dirt road. Best time used to be late April early may before the weeds came in. Once the weeds came in the lake became tough to fish unless you went to the Dam or out to the Channel.

By any chance is there any way to launch a kayak or maybe a small flat bed boat with a low electric motor?
