Lake Paho Conservation Area is in central Mercer County.

The Conservation Department, assisted by a financial commitment from residents of Mercer and surrounding counties, built Lake Paho in the late 1940s. The lake was opened to public fishing in 1951.

The area is rich in Native American history, and the 273-acre lake on the area was named Paho from the Indian word meaning first or number one.

Visitors to the area may enjoy the numerous prairie plants, such as Indian grass, compass plant, and wild indigo that occur naturally in the gently rolling uplands.

June 21 BIG MOUTH BASS
I was there over the weekend of 6-19 thru 6-21 2009. The bass fishing was excellent and the quality and quantity was very well. I probably caught and released over 50 to 60 pounds on saturday and sunday morning,two over 8 pounds. :] :] So by this I want to thank the parks people for taking such great care of the lake.The brush piles are in the right places and it makes great fishing.The only sore comment I have is,I sure wish I could get my own boat back on there again someday.But I do make do with the boats you provide and I HIGHLY appreciate you letting us use them.So thanks again and keep up the good work.I drive a chevy silverado,black,with a skeeter sticker in the back glass.Hope to see you all again soon.Have a good day!!!! :] :] :]
