| Located in Lebanon County, Memorial Lake is an 84 acre impoundment surrounded by the 230 acre Memorial Lake
State Park. This Department of Conservation and Natural Resources lake provides angling
opportunities for bass and panfish and is stocked annually with
tiger muskellunge fingerlings. Memorial Lake offers anglers the choice of fishing from shore or by
boat. The lake has two boat launches, Church Road and Day Use
Access. Motorized boats used in the lake are authorized to use electric motors only. The lake is also
managed under the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) Big Bass Program.
Biologists from the PFBC, Fisheries Management Division conducted a trap netting survey in Memorial Lake as the first step in a comprehensive lake survey. Tiger muskellunge were targeted during this phase of the lake survey. The only tiger muskellunge that was collected was 17 inches in total length and weighed almost one pound. Although not the target of this survey a number of quality panfish were collected including crappie up to 13 inches in total length and bluegill up to eight inches in total length. Future surveys to be conducted in 2005 as part of the comprehensive lake survey will target the panfish and bass populations.
The table below depicts catch during this early survey in Memorial Lake.
