Lake Voorheis supports a variety of species of fish that anglers can try their luck in catching. 
 
September 27th 2015 Largest bass I've ever caught Largemouth 9-27-2015.jpg
 
Please report any catches of Walleye and Perch as we would like to know any success rate of the fish planted in the fall of 2012. Send pictures or fishing reports to warren.width@yahoo.com
 
There has been some concerns that someone has been allowing "friends" access to our lake and these people are taking advantage of this and removing buckets of fish on a daily basis. This activity is unfair to the other homeowners and we are requesting it to stop.If we determine who is lending out their launch pass,we will disable it.
 
If at any time you observe people taking over the limit catches of fish or undersized fish from any lake: It is YOUR duty to report it to DNR. If it isn't reported to DNR, they don't know to come out and attempt to address the situation. DNR is the only resource that can enforce their laws. You can remain anonymous if you choose.Toll free number 800-292-7800
 
On the DNR website link below there is link to submit poaching complaints on line. On the top of the main page is a link to contact DNR then click on the Report All Poaching Complaint Form
 
Take a look at the form on line to see what information is required.

File/imagejpeg_3.jpg   36" Northern Pike Caught July 2012
 
 
 
 
Summer 2017 has been a pretty good year on my boat as we caught more quality bass but fewer in quantity. The Northern pike in seem to be alot more small fish that were more of a bother than fun to catch. We tried to mix up the baits this summer and still found the rubber baits to be most productive.  Spinner baits produced mostly Northern pike and an occasional bass. Very few perch, but the bluegills and sunfish were plentiful. My grandson claims he caught 62 bluegills in one morning...well not quite , it makes him a true fisherman
Send in pictures or fish reports, we would like to hear what others are catching in the lake.
 
Please practice catch and release.
