Ruth Lake is a wonderful fishing lake. The only problem is mustering enough energy and determination to decide to make the drive. So most people who do go to Ruth Lake plan on staying for awhile.
Of course, one wonderful aspect of the “off-the-beaten-path” nature of this lake is that it’s hardly ever crowded.
Ruth Lake Angling
Ruth is a cold water reservoir, built on the upper Mad River in the 1960’s, so rainbow trout are the main target of Ruth Lake anglers. But decent black bass fishing has also taken hold.
