General Fishing Information
Because of the abundance of aquatic vegetation in the pond, try weed less lures when targeting the tiger musky or largemouth bass. Some good lures to try would be spinnerbaits, rubber frogs, or Texas rigged rubber worms.
Oakley Corners Pond does suffer from periodic winter kills. During winters of extended ice and snow cover low dissolved oxygen levels can occur resulting in fish mortality. Oakley Corners Pond is stocked annually with approximately 120 tiger musky. Statewide fishing regulations apply.
