Hunting & Fishing
Fishing enthusiasts flock to the Webster area, where the water abounds and the fish are practically jumping into the frying pan. Fish the lakes that Tony Dean loved -- 120 clear blue, gravel-bottomed lakes formed by glacial activity in the Glacial Lakes & Prairies Region.
Hunters also love the Webster area, which offers fantastic goose and duck hunting. We're on the direct migration route for thousands of geese making their way down the central flyway, as well as located in the heart of the Prairie Pothole region with the largest duck production in the continental U.S. The area is also popular for hunting pheasants, doves, whitetail deer, coyote, and fox.
