WELCOME TO COPPERMINE LODGE
A FISHERMAN'S PARADISE !
Fishing is what makes Beaver Lake stand out from the crowd! With over 25,000 acres and 400 miles of shoreline, Beaver Lake has plenty of room and diverse structures.
All three species of black bass roam these waters. Smallmouth bass catches in the 3-5 lbs range are common. Spotted bass grow to 4lbs plus here but common catches include 1 to 2 pounders. Largemouth in excess of 7 lbs are caught every year, usually in the early spring. Catches on largemouth are up, thanks to a 15 inch lake limit. After several years with this new size limit, it now takes an average of nearly 4 pounds to win most tournaments here !
Stripers are the big fish sought after by thousands here annually. Every year several in the upper 40's to near 50 pounds come to the scales. Beaver Lake has recieved much publicity over the years as a trophy striper lake. Around these parts it takes a striper of 30 pounds or so to even rate a mention on the dock !
