Bluegill, channel catfish, crappie, largemouth bass, and red ear sunfish are just a few of the species awaiting anglers. Solar powered fish feeders provide additional food, increasing fish growth rates and the quantity of fish the lake can support. A floating fishing pier is available and fishing is allowed on the floating pier, which is near one of the two fish attractors.
A major factor affecting fish populations is angler harvest. Fishing success continues to improve with better knowledge and equipment. As a result, more restrictive regulations are needed. Voluntary catch and release also extends a limited fish resource. Reduced harvest of small fish allows more fish to reach a larger, more desirable size. Releasing larger fish increases their recreational use and keeps them in the water to help control undesirable fish by predation. A fish released properly is an investment in future fishing opportunities.
