This perfect fishing spot right next to an old sunken boat is located in the northern part of Quanchkin Lake. The serene mystic atmosphere of this particularly swampy area is just the right chill-out place for the exhausted mind. Here the lake’s bottom is gradual and rather shallow while the still clear waters are grown with dense aquatic vegetation and lily pads, thus providing shelter for underwater predators just waiting for you to cast the right bait.

Right in the middle of Quanchkin Lake’s swampy wetland, you will find a shabby old house. Locals say that it belonged to an old ranger who once rescued an injured pelican and the bird remained in the area long after the old man died and that’s how the the house got its name. But that’s an old story of many years ago. For now, just stay in the moment and leave your worries behind as you indulge in the soothing atmosphere of your favorite passtime.
