Sylvia Lake

Sylvia Lake is essentially trout water, but anglers should not overlook the warmwater fishing on these lakes. Sylvia Lake has largemouth and smallmouth bass. Look for fish along weededges, shoreline cover, tributary mouths, and rocky areas.

Sylvia Lake resembles Trout Lake in several ways.  Both are deep-water lakes; both hold populations of rainbows and lakers; and both see early ice-out because of low elevation.  SYLVIA LAKE HAS BEEN KNOWN TO YIELD LAKE TROUT WEIGHING MORE THAN 20 POUNDS.  Annual stockings at this 314-acre lake number 3,000 rainbow trout measuring nine inches.  Since 75 percent of the lake is privately developed, most anglers prefer fishing during the quiet times of spring and fall when shoreline dropoffs in the 10- to 40-foot range are productive.  Bait fishers use live minnows for lake trout and worms for rainbows.  Cartop access is available from a spur road off State Route 812.
