Branched Oak Lake at 1800 acres is the largest lake in the eastern half of Nebraska. The lake is known for its superior fishing. Fishing for flathead, blue and channel catfish is best in July and August. You might reel in a flathead that weighs in at more than 40 pounds. Crappie fishing is good all year long, from the time they spawn in the spring until you fish for them through a hole in the ice. Walleye, wipers, largemouth bass and blue gills are also plentiful.
There are miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails and a designated area of the campgrounds for campers who bring their horses with them. In addition to the regular water activities and wildlife, you might want to try your skill at the horseshoe pits and archery range.
We do not know of any cabin rentals on this lake currently.
