Looks nice, you would think someone here in OFF who lives in the Independence area would have some info on this Humbug Lake. I'll do some more surfing on the internet highway to try and gather some info.

Does anyone know about this lake? I'd be interested in finding out if it's public or not...

Yeah that's what got me is it's location; at the same time it's right next to the Social Security Hole, which is public. I've seen fishing reports online that say it's a great place for all sorts of fish species but they all say something to the effect of "check the local area to see if this location is open to the public". My wife is out of state for one more day and I was hoping to go fishing somewhere close, and I live in Independence. Just hope the weather clears up -- I just got over a nasty cold!

I fished Humbug when I was a kid, to my knowledge it is public. The road may not be public access, but you should be able to walk in. The lake used to get fresh water from the river every winter allowing for Carp to get in, but the Crappie, Bass, And Bluegill are still abundant. The house on the corner of Halls Ferry and Independence Hwy was the land owners home at the time, but it has been about 20yrs since I have been back...Can't hurt to stop by and ask.

I know this post is old but I checked it out and the pond is 100% private and located in private fields that are clearly marked with no trespassing signs. Too bad!
