There will be a mandatory meeting for all participants scheduled for 6 AM at the launch.

On a lake spanning 3,225 acres, finding a single 12-16 inch fish to nibble your line might sound unlikely; luckily, your pole bends over Lake Arthur, home to more largemouth bass than any other body in the state. This gorgeous warm-water fishery that lines 42 miles of Moraine State Park breeds intrigue amongst fishers across the world, including Fishing University, which shot footage of Lake Arthur for one of its 13 features of the season.  So, launch your day to new depths at Moraine State Park where you’ll be the one who’s hooked!
