That post was four years old. But you were correct that fishing is allowed. Here is a link to a brochure about the park with trail map and rules:

Just pulled in there at the entrance off Lakewood Rd.

I did not see any signs that said NO FISHING. Believe it or not the board with all the info says "Abide to all DNR rules" or something along those lines.

><> Hello Lake-Link Anglers!!! Initially, after reading a previous post from the other day, I thought to myself, "Self? How stupid could I be that I missed a 'big NO FISHING' sign as I entered the Exner Marsh Nature Preserve?" Feeling rather embarrassed for starting this thread('Worried'), I went out today to scope out the premises. And to the contrary, THERE IS NO BIG RESTRICTIVE FISHING SIGN AS YOU ENTER THE NATURE PRESERVE!!('Angry') The only restrictive signs you see as you enter the nature preserve is no snowmobiles and no dumping. Considering I don't own a snowmobile('Speechless') and I always use a toilet for my dumping('Puke'), I figured there was no harm in fishing this marsh. However, as you go to the back of the parking lot, you see a wooden stand that maps out all the nature trails within the nature preserve. On the SIDE of the wooden stand, there, nailed to the wood is a 4" X 4" sign that has a fish, a fishing hook, and a slash through the middle. If some people think 4" X 4" is big, then I must be packing something HUGE-if you guys get what I'm saying('Big Smile'). Even someone looking for signs could miss it VERY VERY easily. It definitely doesn't stick out like the other 2 restrictive signs. Perhaps I wouldn't have been so insulted if a thread like' "Hey guys! I'm familiar with the place and recall a NO FISHING sign posted. Just beware and good fishing.", was posted. Nevertheless, now I know and now I will respect the no fishing rule at Exner Marsh('Crying'). I certainly didn't intend to break any laws while fishing; nor did I mean to start a thread on a body of water that is apparent to me now, off limits. Sorry my peeps!('Sleepy') God Bless and good fishing. <><

><> Hello Lake-Link Anglers!!! I wanted to start a thread on this body of water to see if anyone has any info. I've seen the leftover scraps/garbage from people who possibly were fishing but I know people are out here. I've also seen some HUGE waves from carp as I have kayaked through (don't even know if it's legal to be in this water with my kayak...lol; though there are NO RESTRICTIVE signs). I hit the waters late last year with my new kayak so I didn't catch anything (I was fishing for LMB). I probably would have done well if I sat on the yak and fished for the carp; there were tons of 'em swimming around. Let me know if any of you have the goods on this place. It would seem like the ideal place for HUGE bass to camp out. There was this small inlet of water with a ton of floating vegetation, perfect for bass to hide in but got squadoosh!!! How is it possible this pond has no bass??? Any info would be greatly appreciated. <><
