About

Constructed as a municipal water storage reservoir, Aurora Reservoir is one of the cleanest lakes in the nation. With a surface area of about 800 acres, easy access, and an abundant fish population, this is a popular lake in the summer months and is heavily used.

The fish in the lake include brown, rainbow, and brook trout, wiper, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, tiger muskie, crappie, blue and channel catfish, perch, and walleye. The state record muskie, channel catfish, smallmouth bass, and white sucker were taken in the reservoir.
