Aquatic Plant Life:

Lake Riley is very shallow with extensive beds of submersed, floating, and emergent aquatic vegetation. The nuisance invasive submergent Eurasian Watermilfoil has been found in the pond.

Fish Species:

Northern Pike, Brown Bullhead, White Perch, Rock Bass, Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, and Black Crappie.


Largemouth Bass, Brown Bullhead, White Perch, Bluegill, and Black Crappie 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.
