The towns of Sayner and Star Lake are very small, but there are several lakes right here in this area. However, the smallmouth bass are secondary on the lakes right by these towns. If you’re looking for good smallmouth bass lakes, head just outside of town to the Northern Highlands Fishery Research area where you can learn more about the lakes that we talked above near the top of this page. Nebish Lake & Pallette Lake are great lakes for smallmouth bass. Trout Lake is not too far from these towns either.
