    Ryan I can't help you on any lakes in your area. I expect someone will chime in soon. Good luck on your quest.

    You have the river right there and Baldwin Lake as well, both of them have nice Catfish (Channel, Blue, Flathead) available to catch. Ranging from dinks to monster size 20+ lbers, so you are right next to where you need to go.
