Lake Sarah is a Hennepin County MN fully recreational lake located in the outer tier west Minneapolis suburban area close to Rockford and Loretta. It is a long and narrow body of water, but at 574 acres and 6.7 miles of shoreline, this is a rather significant body of water. Water clarity is only 1.8 feet. Lake Sarah reaches a depth of almost 60 feet. In addition to water skiers, you will find plenty of fish in this lake, especially northern pike. There are also largemouth bass to catch, but the northern pike do especially well here because there are plenty of shiners and bullheads for them to feed on. Bluegill fishing is excellent here, and there are some above average pumpkinseed beauties, especially on the west end of this beautiful Hennepin county MN lake.
The history of this Hennepin County MInnesota lake is nearly as interesting as all of the structure along the shoreline. For many years, Sarah Lake was the site of major ice harvests that supplied homeowners and resort owners in the area. It still is a popular destination today, and the close proximity to Minneapolis ensures that this lake will be a hot spot in the future. Occasionally the lake gets a little busy, but I don’t know of too many good Hennepin County lakes that don’t.
