Anderson Lake Canoe, Kayak, SUP & Kayak Fishing Information


Anderson Lake SUP boardingAnderson Lake offers superb kayaking and kayak  angling opportunities. It is a popular getaway in the summer  months and a perfect outdoor aquatic spot to paddle during the spring, late summer and early fall when the crowds are gone. Weekends in the summer are often  jam-packed with park visitors, but during the winter and fall the lake is pretty peaceful.

Fishing is permitted year-round. Fishing is also allowed in Coyote Creek during fishing season (April to November).

Anderson Lake is approximately seven-miles long and covers 1,250 surface acres at full water level capacity. The lake's shape and scenery is almost identical to its upstream neighbor Coyote Lake, only it's at least twice as long.
