Cass Lake Fishing

Professional bass angler Gerry Gostenik said that he’d rate Oakland County’s Cass Lake as one of the best smallmouth lakes in southeast Michigan.  Cass Lake has a good reputation for year-round fishing.  The best fishing is in early spring before all the motor activity.  (So I have heard)  The Fish species that inhabit the lake are:

  • Walleye
  • Northern Pike
  • Rock Bass
  • Smallmouth Bass
  • Largemouth Bass
  • Blue Gill
  • Crappie
  • Lake Trout

A sandy beach and a one-mile shoreline on Cass Lake makes Dodge #4 State Park an excellent location for summer and winter water activities.  Dodge State Park is known for its accessibility to Cass Lake for people who are interested in fishing, boating,  sitting on the beach, sailing, Ice skating, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. Ice sailing is a new and increasingly popular sport on Sundays in the area. There are boat launches and a parking lot that can accommodate in excess of 80 vehicles with boat trailers.

The land which now comprises Dodge #4 State Park was donated to the State of Michigan by the Dodge Brothers Corporation in 1922, under the stipulation that it always be maintained as a public park.

Cass Lake Sailing

Is a decent inland lake for sailing when the lake is not overrun by speed boats and waverunners.  It is posible to sail 3/4 mile course in most directions.   Consider joining the Pontiac Yacht Club, a small boat sailing club, located on a less busy section of the lake with their own private launch.
