Mosquito lake is a 7,850 acre Reservoir managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

It is the second largest inland lake in Ohio with Grand Lake St. Marys being the largest. Located in northeastern Ohio in the city of Cortland, Mosquito Lake has developed into one of the top ten most popular sites for outdoor recreation in the area.

Walleye are stocked annually by the Division of Wildlife and are often caught from the lake with a range of sizes between 17 to 20 inches. Crappie and Bass are commonly caught while fishing the shallow depths of the shoreline. Mosquito Lake houses channel and flathead catfish that grow to very large sizes. The lake is also home to bluegill, perch, northern pike, and carp.
Fishing through the ice during winter's freeze is very popular with fishing enthusiasts. Mosquito Creek's icy waters have yielded many fine catches of walleye and panfish.
A wheelchair accessible fishing dock is located in the Lakeside Picnic Area.
