Fish Species:

Brook Trout, Largemouth Bass, Brown Bullhead


Historically a brook trout fishery, largemouth bass were introduced in the 1980's and really took off. Brook trout can still be found where tributaries enter the lake, although in relatively low numbers. Largemouth bass are the predominant predator in this water body, however they tend to be on the small side. While this water may not have top quality angling opportunities, the wilderness experience could be well worth the time.
