Driving Directions

Farrington Park is one mile south on County Line Road off of Highway 52 near Windsor.

Farrington Park Lake is a 15 acre lake owned by the City of Windsor and the fishery is managed under a cooperative agreement with MDC.  The lake holds good numbers of bluegill and redear sunfish.  Fish for sunfish near shoreline vegetation using worms, crickets, small crayfish, or artificial jigs.  Use small hooks and weights under a small float.  Channel catfish are stocked each fall.  Catfishing is good.  Target catfish on the bottom with worms, chicken livers or gizzards, or prepared baits.  Largemouth bass fishing can be excellent for large fish.  Fish near patches of water lily and along banks with water willow and rip rap.  Crappie fishing can be hit or miss and don’t expect to catch many big fish.  There is a boat ramp at the lake and only electric motors can be used.  Farrington Park is a great place to take kids or anyone new to fishing.  The shoreline is kept mowed and the lake has several fishing jetties.  The park also has two playgrounds, picnic shelters with grills, and a walking trail.  It’s a great place to pack a lunch and some worms and take the family fishing.
