Populations of many game fish species have been enhanced by a stocking program conducted by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks.
Excellent channel and flathead catfish can be found in the lake and in the river above and below Tuttle Creek. Worms, minnows, shad, and crawdads are preferred baits.
Good populations of crappie can be found in the wooded coves and submerged brush piles using jigs and live minnows.
Fair numbers of bass are caught near standing timber and brush piles using worms, crank baits, and spinner baits.
In early spring, fair numbers of walleye can be taken off the face of the dam as well as in the river below, and Rocky Ford fishing area. Jigs, minnows, and imitation lures work well.
Good numbers of white bass can be taken from late spring through early fall, depending on lake clarity. Jigs and shad imitation lures work well.
