Kelly Lake and Lake Valley Reservoir

Fishing: Rainbow and Brown Trout, Catfish; Trout fishing is excellent at both lakes.

Kelly Lake is perfect for those who enjoy floating quietly on still waters at isolated destinations. An uncrowded atmosphere and absolutely breathtaking views provide quiet solitude while drifting on its peaceful waters. Meanwhile, nearby Lake Valley Reservoir also boasts a quiet atmosphere for a calming paddling experience. Trout fishing is particularly good at both lakes, though kayak angling is excellent at Lake Valley Reservoir, where you can catch both trout and catfish.
