Fishing at Lake Rogers
For those who enjoy fishing, Lake Rogers has a pier fishing and a boat launch. Day or full season passes are available at City Hall or the concession stand during operating hours. Make sure to have your boat launch pass with you at all times while on the lake.
Bass fishing is fair-to-good with best results during the spring and early summer months. Several bass in excess of 10 pounds have been taken from the lake. Bream fishing is fair around the pier during the spawning season. Bowfins (grindle) are caught on occasion and provide anglers with excellent sport. Other species common to the lake are white perch, carp, pickerel, gizzard shad, and yellow perch. Channel catfish were introduced in the 1970s and anglers report fair catches for this species.
The concession stand is open from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays from mid-April through the end of October.
