Reel in the Catch of the Day in Coldwater Country
With more than 100 lakes, including two chains of lakes, Coldwater Country offers countless opportunities for anglers, fishing from shore or boat, to reel in the catch of the day.
Notably the largest of the area lakes, Coldwater Lake, is home to an abundance of fish including catfish, crappie, large- and small-mouth bass, northern pike, sunfish, walleye, and yellow perch. This 1,650 acre deep water lake offers its best fishing from a boat from dusk until dawn. Boats, canoes and kayaks are available for rent locally.
Try shore fishing at Coldwater Country’s Marble Lake for the best catch of bluegills and largemouth bass. Crappie, northern pike, smallmouth bass, sunfish and walleye can also be found throughout this 780 acre lake, located on the largest chain of lakes.
As the weather cools, the frozen-over lakes offer another opportunity to get outside and breather in the cold, clean air. Spend an afternoon outdoors with friends and family in the quest to catch fish or join in the festivities and contests at the Quincy Tip-Up Festival. This February weekend of family fun offers everything from fishing contests to snowmobile races, wood cutting contests, and a corn-hole tournament.
Need an incentive to drop a line this winter? Try it as part of the Free Fishing Weekend, February 18-19, 2017. This annual weekend provides two days where no fishing license is required for residents or non-residents, although all fishing regulations still apply.
After a day on the lake, enjoy some down time followed by a mouth-watering meal at one of Coldwater Country’s locally owned diners, restaurants, or pubs. Whether looking for a quick bite to eat, a unique dining destination or a gourmet dinner, visitors will find it in Coldwater Country.
So whether you’re looking for a summer fishing getaway, a relaxing fall fishing weekend with friends, or an ice fishing adventure Coldwater Country has you covered.
