Cooper Lake Fishery
Cooper Lake (DNR #11-0163) has 147.1 surface acres and 97.4 littoral acres. Maximum depth is 70 feet and shoreline length is 2.9 miles. The lake was mapped in March, 1941. There is no public access. Because there is no public access, the DNR does not normally do any in-depth analysis of the fishery. A DNR fisheries lake survey was completed in July, 1987 (also surveyed in 1973). There were good numbers of panfish, northerns, and perch in that survey. There was also one longear sunfish caught (endangered species).
