Lake Holcombe is a fisherman's fantasy with 120 miles of shoreline and with approximately 3900 acres of water. One day's catch could easily include musky, northern, walleye, bass, crappie, blue gill, catfish or sturgeon. It's surrounded by scenic countryside with nature at its best. Sit back, relax, and watch the lazy river flow by or the soft lake waves lap the shore. Watch closely and see a bald eagle, a flock of wild geese, a loon, or a beautiful deer. Notice at night that the stars and the moon shine brightly in the clear northern sky.
