Mullener Pond, formerly called Mollineaux Pond, was dredged in 1993 and restocked with bluegills and largemouth bass in 1994.

The pond was surveyed in 2015 to assess the health of the fish community. During the survey the catch of Largemouth bass over 12 inches was 10 fish per hour. Pumpkinseed were also very abundant, with a catch rate of over 100 fish per hour, but tend to be on the smaller side, around 6 inches long. Anglers targeting bass should be reminded that a no-kill regulation exists here, meaning you cannot keep bass of any size.
