Enders Lake in Nebraska

by kayakjakk

Trip Overview

Enders Lake is a great place to paddle especially during the weekdays of summer. There are very few people on the lake at this time. This past week I went fishing from my kayak and caught three wipers over 24". Plus, lots of smallmouth bass, rock bass, crappie, and white bass. I fished mostly at the base of the dam along the rocks. It was easy to drift as the wind came directly from the south.

I used minnow spinners with much success. The paddling was difficult against the wind but the cool water was refreshing in the 90 plus degrees weather.

Accommodations:

Lots of camping facilities. Washhouse, fish cleaning station and restrooms. Great bait shop called Lakers.

Fees:

Nebraska Fishing License and State Park permit required.

Directions:

Just 28 miles north of highway 6 and 34 and only 3.5 hours from Denver.
