Stephens Lake Park is fairly large, taking about 20 minutes to walk around the paved path surrounding it. Mostly open, there are wooded areas on the fringes. Excellent park for dog walks.

I do not believe catfish is available in this lake. It would be blue gill, crappie, maybe small mouth bass.

Not here but I believe at Finger Lakes state park you can rent them! Finger lakes is a little bit north of Columbia but not far.
