  • Centennial, along with Black Donald Lake, is a reservoir lake which was created with the construction of the Mountain Chute Dam at the end of the 1960’s.
  • the Madawaska River flows into the lake on the northwest side. The stretch of river from Griffith to Centennial Lake (which is a sanctuary area for a short period in the spring) is a popular walleye fishing area when the season open. During the summer walleye move towards the main lake. Your fishing efforts should focus on points, channels and narrows, shoals and the rubble shorelines of the mainland and islands. Smallmouth bass can also be caught in these areas. Weedy backbays are good for largemouth bass and pike
