There are a
number of reasons to have a picnic at Lake Mary
Narrows. You might be interested in fishing for the
walleye, trout and channel catfish that live in
Upper Lake Mary. It's just a few steps from any of
the picnic tables.
It can also serve as a great place
to take a time out from cruising in your boat, which
may be anything from a canoe to a jet boat on this
upland lake where there is no restriction on boat
motor size. On the other hand, if you're a
bird watcher, you may want to come here to see the
migrating waterfowl or wintering eagles that
regularly put in an appearance at the lake. In any
of these cases and more, you'll find an afternoon at
Lake Mary Narrows a varied and enjoyable experience.
