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.

A long easy-to-access shoreline offers plenty of opportunities to fish from shore, and several boat ramps make it easy to get onto the water.



Techniques & Tips

The wide variety of fish come with an equally wide variety of techniques. The lake is heavily used by kayakers, windsurfers, and other recreational watercraft, and they can disturb a quiet troll, but early morning and late evening offer times when recreational boats are off the water. Its the best time to fish for most species as well.

Trout will hit on the traditional dry flies matching the hatch during the summer months. Bass on poppers, rubber worms, and crankbaits, and perch and walleye off jigs, bottom bouncing rigs, and live bait.

Muskie will hit larger Rapalas and will take live minnows as well.

Channel and blue cats will hit worms off the bottom, and many have been taken with aromatic lumps of liver, bread dough, or a mix of both with a little cheese added.
