Mauch Chunk Lake Park - Fishing
Mauch Chunk Lake Park is an official site of the Fishing Tackle Loaner Program. Fishing tackle is available to campers free of charge. Fishing is permitted anywhere along the shoreline with the exception of a 100’ buffer zone around all sides of the swimming area. The park has a fully accessible fishing pier at Boat Launch A. Fish in the lake include: catfish, chain pickerel, muskie, large and small-mouth bass, perch, bluegill, crappie, walleye, and some trout (lake at one time was stocked with trout). The PA Fish & Boat Commission stocks the lake and determines numbers, species, and dates of stockings.
