Fishing Report: Considered a quality lake, Badger was one of the practice lakes for the 1993 World Fly Fishing Championship. The lake produces excellent hatches of chironomids in the early spring followed by a good sedge hatch beginning in mid-June. Badger can, and has in the past, produced large Rainbows in the 10 lb. class, however trout up to 3-1/2 lbs. are the norm these days.
Be sure to visit for angling information!
