Hemlock Lake

Hemlock Lake, also known as Straight Run Lake, supports a good fishery comprised primarily of largemouth bass, panfish along with northern pike. Its modest 60 acres cool quickly, increasing the odds of a lengthy ice fishing season. Just to the east, State Game Lands 174 provides nearly 4,000 acres of public hunting boasting a variety of habitats.
Hemlock Lake (as it will show as on most maps, including Penn Dot maps), is a relatively infertile body of water that, despite this lack of productivity — water chemistry-wise — plays host to a respectable fish population, largemouth bass in particular. It reaches depths of more than 30 feet and has significant weed growth in the shallow zones — consisting of about 30 percent of the lake’s total acreage.
