Parkway Lake is a very good, urban trophy trout fishery. During trout season, a dozen or more trout weighing 10 pounds and up are caught each month.
The average fish catch per rod is better than 3 pounds. And all this fine fishing is only about a 30 minute drive for most anglers in the South Bay.
Parkway Lake is small – only about 35 acres. But it is deep (about 40 feet) and the water is relatively clear. Parkway plants about 15,000 trout per month, including many larger than 8 pounds.
In the summer months, there are catfish (also stocked), bass and panfish to pursue. No license is required, but there is a fishing fee.
