Lake Isabella is a 28-acre paid lake that is stocked weekly (March-October) and offers fishing from the bank, dock or rental rowboat. The boathouse has an assortment of rods, reels, lures, artificial and live bait as well as plenty of seating out on the deck. You can purchase day or season passes at the boathouse. An Ohio State Fishing License is not required to fish at Lake Isabella.
The park also offers a Campground, lodge, and little Miami River Access.
We are not big fans of paid fishing lakes, especially since we have so many great lakes listed, and the Little Miami River is right next door. Still, there are big fish in this lake and its not free to stock a lake, plus you don't have to have an Ohio fishing license. Also, you can rent an aluminum fishing boat if you don't have one, that's another plus for this lake.
