Comments: Simley Lake is a very popular fishing lake. It has a pier, shore fishing stations on the north shore and island, plus a lot of open space to fish from. Shoreline restorations have occurred at multiple areas on this lake. Walleye are stocked almost every year and there are also plenty of panfish present in this lake.
