Comments: Lochness Lake is a peaceful little lake with a walking path surrounding it and a fishing pier.  It is stocked regularly with Bluegill and Black Crappie and occasionally gets stocked with catchable size Northern Pike. The lake can become heavily vegetated in mid-summer, and water level is currently low which can make shorefishing more difficult.
