250 acres

  Comments: North Anson Lake is known for its trophy-bass fishing, but it is highly productive and also supports good populations of bluegill, white crappie and catfish. The lake typically has excellent numbers of largemouth bass 5 pounds and bigger. Most of these fish are caught by flipping plastic worms or jigs in bullrush, and the dam can produce some good-sized largemouth bass as well. Try the tower on the dam in teh early spring for white crappie. Florida largemouth bass were introduced in 1981.
