Fishing and Boating


Blackhawk Lake is a 220 acre man made lake with a maximum depth of 42 feet. It offers anglers excellent fishing opportunities throughout the year. Bluegills and crappies are very common. Largemouth bass, walleye, and northern pike are present as well. A perch, pumpkinseed, bullhead, catfish, or carp may also find its way to the end of your line.

All anglers must have a valid fishing license and should know current fishing regulations including size limits and possession limits for specific species.

The lake has a public boat launch with a paved surface and boarding docks. The parking lot at the boat launch has 25 stalls for vehicle and boat parking. Additional parking is available nearby. Handicap piers are available as well as shore fishing opportunites on many sides of the lake.

During the winter months, many anglers brave the elements to hit the hardwater. Anglers should always remember that ice thickness can vary on any body of water. Think safety first.
