My life on Youngs Lake
by Jerome A Webb
on April 28, 2020
In the mid to late 70s my family rented a house on Lake Nepessing Road with a rough road access to Youngs Lake. The house, since demolished, belonged to the same owners as the lake and we were given permission to use the lake as long as we kept non-invited fisherman off it. No gas engines were allowed; only boats with oars or electric trolling motors. The lake was completely surrounded by swamp with the only access being a cut and dredged channel. The lake was full of large mouth bass, crappie, and pike. In the winter we would catch rainbow trout using tip-ups. Since very few people used the lake we often felt like is was there just for us. When not fishing we would row around the lake to watch the blue herrings and other warterfowl. I really loved that lake. I often look at it on Google maps and wonder who uses it now.
