Bluestem State Recreation Area

3 W of Sprague
Martell, NE 68404


Anglers especially enjoy this 742-acre state recreation area, situated 2l/2 miles west of Sprague. The 325-acre lake offers diverse action for anglers of all abilities. Opportunity awaits to try for largemouth bass, bluegill, channel catfish, walleye, northern pike and wiper among others.

Boating is allowed at Bluestem, and boaters find there is easy access to the water from strategically located ramps. The 417 acres of land around the lake give hunters plenty of room to maneuver for pheasants, quail, squirrel cottontail rabbit, waterfowl and deer.
