Roberts Lake is a reservoir[1] at 5010 Roberts Lake Road[2] in Rohnert Park, California, USA. Named after Arthurt N. Roberts, a five-term mayor who died in 1986,[3] it is the centerpiece of Roberts Lake Park,[4] a city park.

The lake is the site of an annual free fishing derby for children fifteen years and under.[5] Fish species found in the lake include rainbow trout, bluegill, crappie, channel catfish, carp, and largemouth bass.[6]
