Fishing Coffey Co. Lake Coffey County Lake offers one of the best predator to prey ratios in the country, which means fish thrive year long. Largemouth bass and crappie can often be hooked near areas of standing timber. The open waters are home to white bass and wipers. Along the rock-lined shores you’re likely to find walleye, channel catfish, and probably the best supply of smallmouth bass anywhere in the Midwest.
