Fish Species

This shallow lake gives anglers a chance to catch a variety of fish species including: largemouth bass, bluegills and chain pickerel. When targeting bass and pickerel try using artificial baits that resemble bait fish. Popular baits to use are spinnerbaits, topwater plugs and soft plastic jerk-baits. When fishing for panfish try using night crawlers and small jigs fished on the bottom.
