Main Page for Friendship Park – http://www.thelandman.net/friendship-park.html
Friendship Park is located on the edge of Friendship Village, Adams Township in Adams County, Central Wisconsin just below the Hydroelectric Dam that regulates the water levels for Friendship Lake. The Lake is fed by both Fordham Creek and Little Roche A Cri Creek class trout streams. Directly below the hydro dam is a small pool of water making great fish habitat just before the water turns back into Little Roche-A-Cri Creek which is still a trout stream. There’s a newer arched walking bridge that suspends over the creek from the north side of Friendship Park to the south side giving access to the winter sledding hill. Also on the south side of the park you’ll find a small wildlife pond used mostly by Birds, Frogs, Turtles and other Wisconsin Wildlife.
Friendship Park offers a nice genuine park like setting with a view of Friendship Mound (private). It features sand volleyball courts, barbecue grills, a large picnic pavilion for outdoor parties which you can get reserve and plenty of playground equipment for the kids like swings, slides and a merry-go-round. So, if you want to spend a nice quiet day enjoying the outdoors doing some trout fishing, picnicking, playing a little sand volleyball even pushing someone special on the merry go round then put Friendship Park on your agenda.

Micropterus Salmoides also known as Largemouth Bass
Main Page – http://www.wisconsin-wi.com/largemouth-bass.html
One of the more popular types of game fish is the largemouth bass. These fish are abundant all over the state, but are found more around the Great Lakes area. They tend to stay in water that is warm and shallow. Also like the weeds which give them shelter. Wisconsin bass will eat pretty much anything; they favor more towards live bait though. I wouldn’t try fishing for largemouth during the ice fishing season; they are generally not active during the cold season. They are a tasty fish that are usually pretty easy to catch.

Esox Lucius also known as Northern Pike
Main Page – http://www.wisconsin-wi.com/northern-pike.html
The northern pike is a very popular fish in Wisconsin also referred to a “Northern” or “Pike”. If you like to go ice-fishing, then you should fish for northern pike. They tend to be the most abundant right after the ice has formed. It is pretty easy to catch Wisconsin northern pike because they will eat almost anything that they can fit into their mouth. Northern pike have around 128 eye-catching scales on their body. If you are looking to catch a good amount of northern pikes, try fishing around the Great Lakes area. They have been pretty abundant around that location. Enjoy a day on a Wisconsin Lake fishing for Big Northern Pike using typical pike fishing lures, baits, tackle and gear.
