Fish Species:

Bowfin, Northern Pike, Channel Catfish, Brown Bullhead, Rock Bass, Pumpkinseed, Bluegill, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Black Crappie, Yellow Perch. Last surveyed in 1997. Creel Survey conducted in 2012.

Fishing:

Good Northern Pike and Yellow Perch fishing through the ice when safe ice develops. In most years, the early spring fishing for Yellow Perch, Brown Bullhead, and White Perch can be very good. Northern Pike, Chain Pickerel, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Sunfish, and Yellow Perch can be caught during the open water season. A spinnerbait or stickbait, like a rapala, works well in shallow weedy water, for the gamefish. For the panfish try worms fished under a bobber or small plastic tube baits or twister tails.

Aquatic Vegetation:

The bay is very shallow with extensive beds of submersed, floating, and emergent aquatic vegetation that covers almost all of the bay's surface area. The nuisance invasive submergents Eurasian Watermilfoil, and Curley leaf Pondweed have been found in the bay. The bay is treated annually with an aquatic herbicide to control the vegetation.

Regulations:

Great Lakes Angling Regulations apply.
