​​Crawford State Park is known as a quality perch and crappie fishery. Anglers may reel in a lunker channel catfish, a dandy largemouth bass or a nice northern pike. Because of the popularity of summer water-based motor sports, the best times to fish are early/late day, weekdays or non-summer weekends.

Daily fishing limits are:

  • Yellow perch: no limit

  • Northern pike: no limit

  • Crappie:  limited to 20

  • Catfish:  limited to 10, and

  • Bass: limited to 1- must be at least 18” inches. Smaller Bass need to be released.

Fishing is permitted anywhere on the reservoir. Use or possession of minnows or fish for bait is prohibited.
