15,250 acres
  Water clarity: 1 to 5 feet and green colored
  Comments: Hubbard Creek Lake is one of the biggest lakes in the area. A contour map can be purchased at local sporting goods stores. This lake is known for its excellent white crappie and white bass fishing up Hubbard Creek and Sandy Creek in the late fall, winter and early spring. A very effective technique during this time is to locate brush in 10 to 15 feet of water in the creek channel and fish a jig or minnow. Hubbard Creek Lake is also a good choice for largemouth bass anglers and catfish anglers. Bass tournaments are popular at this lake. Channel catfish and blue catfish populations are abundant, and some good-sized fish can be caught. Camping and lodging facilities are excellent. Caution is advised under windy conditions. Public access is fair for a lake of this size. Several bait shops and hotels are located along U.S. Highway 180.
