family fishing on boat

Do you love to boat and fish? We have a beautiful 25-acre lake here at Small Country. Lake Ruth Ann is our private lake on the property. Fishing is just one of the many fun things we have to offer!  

Whether you like to cruise around the lake in a paddle boat or you like to canoe for a little more of a workout we have something for you! We do not allow any sort of watercraft that is gas powered but other than that you can rent from us for a small fee or bring your own free of cost!  

We stock our lake with bass, bream, crappies, and channel catfish. Some have even reached citation sizes. Small Country is a great place to teach your kids how to fish or just sit back and relax with friends.  

Make lifelong memories with your family and friends this Summer. Whether you’re just getting into fishing or you’ve been doing it for years, there are still memories to be made. Give us a call today if you’d like to learn more!

Here are 5 boating & fishing tips: 

Don’t forget the sunscreen… 

It can be easy to forget about sunscreen when you’re on the boat fishing and not in the water swimming. Bring sunscreen to reapply to avoid burning and ruining the fun.  

 Keep your hooks in order 

Organize your hooks on a safety pin to help prevent any accidents and be more organized! 

 Snacks are essential  

The more snacks you bring the longer you can fish without having to leave the lake. Getting in and out of the boat every hour is a hassle so make sure you are stocked up on food and water. 

Make your own bait 

This one sounds a little gross… but you can make your own bait by chopping up hotdogs and marinating them in garlic and cherry Kool-Aid powder. If you forget bait you may have something at your campsite that you can use.

Dress comfortably 

Fishing is not a fashion show. It is best to be dressed safely and comfortably. The more prepared you are the more fun you can have!
