Yellowwood State Forest

Crooked Creek Lake (Brown County)

Crooked Creek Lake is a relatively small forest lake with a fine population of bass, bluegill, redear, and channel catfish. It is also a relatively remote place to paddle. This is a great place for fishing or paddling with small children but not recommended for the adventure. Rarely will you see another boat on the lake. Pathfinder Outfitters has kayaks for drop off to Crooked Creek Lake.
