Stahahe Lake


Lake Stahahe

Lake Stahahe, located inside Harriman State Park, provides anglers with some good fishing for Largemouth Bass, Chain Pickerel and panfish. Try using spinnerbaits and minnow imitations over weed beds for the pickerel and bass. A bobber and nightcrawler combination will usually work for the panfish. Fishing for crappies can be productive from shore, especially in the spring. A minnow or a jig fished under a float can be effective for these tasty fish.
