Nebraska’s second largest lake, Lewis & Clark straddles the northeast border with South Dakota, about 7 miles north of Crofton on Nebraska Highway 121. The lake is about 16 miles long and 3 miles wide, with a maximum depth of 45 feet. It draws its name from the Lewis & Clark Expedition, which camped nearby on their epic journey to explore the Louisiana Purchase. This state recreation area includes five areas on the south side of the lake: Weigand-Burbach, Miller Creek, Bloomfield, South Shore and Deep Water.
Boating on the lake covers the gamut from pontoons to high-powered speedboats to personal watercraft (PFC).
Anglers at Lewis and Clark will find a variety of species, including walleye, sauger, largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill, crappie and catfish. Look for all these species around the jetties at the Weigand-Burbach area.
Hunting is allowed on the area beginning the Tuesday after Labor Day, except that the Weigand-Burbach area is closed to all hunting
