Guests of our lodges are welcome to fish any of Tara’s lakes, though we request that you abide by Tara’s creel limits. Our lakes have bass, bluegill, crappie, and catfish.
A few fishing poles are available for guests at Tara’s main lodge, but we recommend that guests bring their own. Bait and tackle can be purchased at one of the local convenience stores around Eagle Lake.
