Lakes in Pennsylvania


The fourth largest of the Great Lakes, Lake Erie lies on Pennsylvania's border and, like Ohio, New York and Michigan, the state may claim its flat, wide waters as its own. Although it's no longer a thriving commercial fishing venue, Lake Erie is still a favorite of sports fishers and ice fishers. But it's not the only popular lake in Pennsylvania.

In northern PA's Bald Eagle State Park, 1,730-acre Foster Joseph Sayers Reservoir offers visitors a full-service marina complete with rentals, storage facilities and launches. Sailboats as well as motorboats are allowed on the lake, which offers year- round fishing, including ice fishing. Comparable facilities are available throughout the state - at Codorus State Park's Lake Marburg, a 1,275-acre lake in the south; in Nockamixon State Park's 1,450 Lake Nockamixon in the east; and at Moraine State Park's Lake Arthur, a 3,225-acre warm-water fishery in the west.
