Fishing Report: Managed as a quality water, Campbell offers excellent rainbow fishing in the spring and fall months. During the summer there is a heavy algae bloom on the lake. 2 lb. bows are the norm in this fast action lake, however 5 lb. fish are routinely caught. Occasionally trout that exceed 10 lbs. find their way to some lucky fisherman's offering. Campbell is a shallow but rich lake with good quantities of aquatic life. Summer winds sometimes make fishing impossible, but when conditions are right, this is definitely the lake you'll want to be on.
Be sure to visit for angling information!
