Waseca is located in Southern Minnesota’s Lake Region. There are several nice lakes in the area, with two in Waseca. They are, you might say our “Crown Jewels”.
Clear Lake is the largest of the two at about 750 acres. It gets plenty of use, from fisherman to pleasure boaters. We also have a new trail around the lake and it’s got people using it biking or walking nearly all the time. Fish caught in Clear Lake include crappies, sunfish, walleye, northern, perch and largemouth bass. There are two new landings on the lake, one at Maplewood Park off U.S. Hwy 14 on the S.E. corner of the lake and also on the north at North Shore Park.
Loon Lake is on the west edge of town and is filled with panfish, northerns and bass. There is a nice park on the N.W. side of the lake with a rock jetty that people use to fish as well as several areas to shore fish. There is a landing on the south shore. There are no gas-powered, only electric motors allowed on the lake. You’ll see canoes paddling around now and then and there is a nice island in the center of the lake. The lake also has a nice sidewalk trail that gets plenty of use.
