This 37-acre lake, in the village of Owen Brown, was built by the Columbia Association in 1974 with a watershed of near 2,500 acres. The lake depth is about 8 feet and is 15 feet at its deepest point. The lake is stocked with trout each spring. The lake is a reservoir for the surrounding populace. A convenient boat dock allows for quiet relaxation on the lake. Lake Elkhorn features a picnic pavilion in its 23-acre park.
Fishing: The lake, while infested with Elodea, Hornwort,and a myriad of other invasive plants, the bluegill population has abounded in the cover, but weedless hooks are a must. The pavilions make for good fishing, but the pier does not. As a general rule, piers that often see fishermen are not good fishing spots because the fish there are educated through repeated catch and release. Fishing near the treeline away from the pier yields plenty of bluegill that are of eating size.
Hi. I am Ian, an extremely avid bass fisherman living in Howard County, MD. I like to bank fish and fish at local ponds and small creeks. I will explore budget friendly options for people to use in this blog. I hope I can teach you something.
