Comments: Wood Park is a quiet lake to fish in the City of Burnsville. The access to the lake is down the hill via an asphalt walking path. There is a fishing pier plus several locations that you can fish from shore. Bluegills are abundant and you should be able to catch them using a worm or even a piece of corn or bread. Channel Catfish yearlings (~8") were stocked for the first time in 2012.
