Sterling Lake is located on the north side of Rosencrans Road (Route 173), just east of Route 41. There is also a bait shop located at the boat rental building.

I went to Sterling lake on Saturday. Caught a 12" Walleye on a crawler. Also caught about 10 largemouths, although most very small, on crawlers and minnows. All fish were caught near the shore in about 8-10 ft. of water.
