Ashland Lake

Ashland Lake is located in the University of Missouri’s Baskett Wildlife Research Area, east of Ashland. It is approximately 12 acres in size and has a watershed of 2,475 acres. This represents a large ratio of watershed size to lake volume, which reduces the lakes ability to dilute inflows and settle out particulate matter. The lake’s fishery is managed by the Missouri Department of Conservation and public fishing is allowed.
