I understand the lake is about 17 feet deep in the middle and has Northern Pike, but I'm not sure if fishing is allowed. Says Lake Jessie
You'll meet a lot of people from Binford here, and a magnificent place to camp here at Lake Jessie is Binford Park Campground. This lake is so wonderful. If you need a spot to stay Super 8 Valley City is a great choice. Stump Lake is a nearby lake that you could go to, and camping at Lake Addie is always a wonderful
experience. Lake Jessie gets very little rain. The wettest month of the year is ordinarily June, that's the one that rains the most; February on the other hand is the driest.
