Pierz Fish Lake



Pierz Fish Lake is a multi-recreational lake 2 miles West of Pierz. In the summer time, the lake is a popular destination for water skiers, jet skiers, swimmers, boaters, and anglers. The public access on the West side of the lake is also used for swimming, shore and dock fishing, as well as boat launching. The winter fishery is primarily for bluegill and black crappie. Bow fishing for carp has gained popularity in late spring. Shore fishing for black crappie is common along the West roadside in early spring.  Survey results suggest that Pierz Fish Lake has an abundant population of Large Mouth Bass with some of the highest survey catches in the area. Pierz Fish Lake has heavy shoreline development and is a popular lake on weekends during the summer. The best shoreline and watershed management practices are encouraged to protect water quality and fish habitat, as well are reduce shoreline erosion.
