Largemouth bass are the predominant predator in Sucker Lake. Fish up to 18" have been caught, which is pretty good for a small high elevation pond. Smallmouth bass are present but in much lower numbers. Historically this was a brook trout pond and local anglers still report an occasional trout coming out of the "spring hole."
