What did they end up stocking the lake with? There was some big crappie and bass in there before the dam went out.

Wondering about the history of this lake for the last 4 years since the dam let go. Does anyone have information or know where I can find some? Looked like a viable place to try and fish but not sure anymore, more interested in what work has been done if any.   Thanks for any info!

Sherwood Lake slipped away in the winter of 2013-14 when the spillway dam failed, allowing water to escape into Hay Creek, a tributary of the East Fork of the Black River that feeds the lake. As a result, the main dam, in need of repairs itself, was opened allowing water to exit the lake. Clark County had hopes of obtaining a grant from the Wisconsin DNR to repair it but the grant was denied in the spring of 2014, leaving this beautiful lake empty. Vegetation has grown quickly in the rich sediment left exposed.

A unique opportunity is now apparent to those who loved to fish Sherwood Lake. It has become filled with sediment through the years allowing heavy weed growth,and causing poor fish habitat. Friends of Sherwood Lake would like to dredge the lake bed, remove the sediment/mud, before the dam is repaired and the lake is filled back up. Clark County Forestry & Parks has proposed in their budget for 2015 to make needed repairs to the dam so time is limited for this dredging project. A measurement of mud depth shows that about 160,000 cubic yards of sediment in the lake bed could ideally be removed.

Our goals are to create a deeper lake, more suitable for fish habitat and fewer weeds.

Sherwood Lake is completely drawn down due to a failure of the emergency spillway in the back part of the lake. Southern Clark County Sportsman's Club is spearheading a project to get the lake dredged while the water is down. For more information contact Tom Obermayr at 715-884-2554. The club meets at the R&C Roadhouse Hwy 73 10 miles west of Pittsville the second Wednesday of every month, everyone is welcome. The topic of discussion will be the repair of the dam and possible dredging. Next meeting is April 9th at 7:00pm. for more information find us on facebook, "friends of Sherwood Lake"
