Sixberry Lake supports both warm/coolwater fish in its shallow waters and coldwater fish in its deeper water. Smallmouth bass is the most common shallow water gamefish; lake trout are the most common coldwater gamefish. Smallmouth up to 17" and lake trout up to 26" are reasonably common. As of 2012, the lake was stocked with at least 300 lake trout and 500 Atlantic salmon annually.

Ice Fishing:

Ice fishing for trout and salmon is permitted.
