Fishing Description: 

Species present include largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, redear sunfish, channel catfish, and rainbow trout.

Fishing Tips, Tactics, How-To info: 

Gradually improving population; larger fish (up to 10 inches long) are caught early to late spring in deep-water structure. Try fishing near beaver lodges. Note: Bluegill and other sunfish -15 fish daily creel limit.

Channel catfish
Stocked annually; many 2-3 pound fish observed during fall sampling. Note: Limb lines (set lines), jug lines, and trot lines are illegal to use at this lake.

Largemouth bass
Good bass population but very difficult lake to fish; good numbers of fish over 15-inches; potential for trophy size bass. Due to water clarity, anglers may have to fish deeper when fishing this lake. In the fall of 2008, 2,715 4.5-inch largemouth bass were stocked to offset the effects of the poor spawn in that year. Based on 2009 spring sampling data, anglers may see their catches of ≥12-inch bass increase in 2010.

Rainbow trout
Annually stocked population with some carry-over. Best fishing year round is in the open lake area and in the dam area. During the spring and summer try fishing at night under lights. Winter fishing can also be good.

Redear sunfish
Numbers low, however a few 8-13 inch fish can be found. After the spawn try fishing in deeper water near the bottom.
