Keep The C Clean!

Public Boat Access & Wash Station Cleaning

Lake Cunningham is a no-wake lake, 5mph. The public boat ramp will be open for use during park hours from 5:00am-11:00pm. In our efforts to stop the spread of the invasive Zebra Mussels species,  Lake Cunningham’s staff will be offering voluntary boat cleaning services upon appointment request only. Please call 531-201-5754 to do so.

We want to thank all of those who join us in these efforts to stop the spread of Zebra Mussels by properly sanitizing boats or kayaks prior to entering the lake. After many months of closure, capital improvements and anticipation for the park to open, our hope is that the community will take advantage of these sanitation efforts and take responsibility in helping us “Keep the C Clean!”

Fishing

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission on July 28 stocked 255 “bonus” catfish ranging from 1 to 13 pounds, averaging 7. Catch and release will be heavily promoted at Lake Cunningham in the first few years to allow for the growth of fish and the proper development of fisheries. Since 2020, catfish, white bass, bluegill, largemouth bass, and crappie have been stocked in the lake in preparation for the reopening. Saugeye and additional channel catfish are planned to go in this fall. To see stocking details, visit outdoornebraska.gov/fish-stocking-database.
