Fishing for bass and trout is most popular at Camanche. All of the lake's fishing access fees go to fund the lake's stocking program. Shore fishing access is good, but boat rentals are available if you prefer to get out on the water. Big fish are here: Camanche fishing records are a 19.42 pound rainbow trout, a 15 pound largemouth bass, and a 3.06 pound crappie.
