Walton Lake

Introduction

Walton Lake

Walton Lake, located in the Town of Monore, is stocked every spring with 3700 brown trout. The water in Walton Lake is fairly clear, so natural colored baits tend to work best. The shallow water on the northeast and southwest ends are good places to try for both bass and trout. Shore access is limited; it is suggested that you bring a canoe or car-top boat.
