Trout fishing at Willow Lake should be excellent. About 4,000 legal and 1,500 pounders were recently stocked, and plenty of fish were stocked earlier this spring. There should also be some good holdover trout present, which are very good eating this time of year.

Campgrounds at Willow Lake are open, as is the improved boat ramp. For more information please visit their website. Willow Lake is nearly full at 98 percent capacity.

In addition to the trout, there are large numbers of illegally introduced yellow perch up here and anglers are always encouraged to take as many of these as they want. This illegal introduction has only resulted in stunted perch and impacts to the bass and trout fishery in this lake and numerous others around the Southwest District. Anglers are reminded that using live fish as bait is prohibited. If you see someone transporting live fish from or into a water body, please get a photo and/or call OSP with this information.
