Fish found within this lake include: largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, brown bullhead, northern pike, tiger muskellunge, bluegill, common carp, black crappie, and pumpkinseed. Anglers have reported catching many sunfish of a variety of sizes. Round Lake has excellent fishing for both largemouth bass and northern pike. For increased chances to catch both of these fish, fishermen should fish weed beds or near down trees.
