  • Trout Fishing at Dixon Lake has slowed in recent days, although the December 22 stock brought in some limits throughout the holiday.

    Fishermen continue to try to find effective bait. Recent reports of green PowerBait attracting the trout have come to Dixon Lake staff in recent days. Green crappie jigs are also popular items sold at the Dixon Lake Concession Stand.

    Jack Creek Cove and Whisker Bay were the two popular spots of the week, with Pier 1 slowing down for the first time this season. Fishermen in boats have had some success close to the buoy line.

    Occasional large catfish and small to medium bass continue to make appearances.

    Dixon Lake staff encourages anglers who qualify to take advantage of “Senior/Military Wednesdays.” Senior citizens 60 and older and military personnel are eligible to purchase $18 all day motor boats, and $12 all day row boats every Wednesday.

    Dixon Lake would like to remind the public that Thursday, January 1, 2015 will be observed as a holiday. There will be a $5.00 entry free per vehicle. Seniors are free of charge.
