Types of Fish Found

Depending on what part of the lake you fish, you will find many different species. Crappie, Bass, Catfish and Walleye are the most popular finds. Nearly every part of the lake is overflowing with a bounty of fish to be caught. Year-round the lake has a large variety of fish to be caught, and no matter if on-season or off-season this is the best place to fish. The fall and winter months have significantly less tourists, giving you a more serene experience and allowing you to fish for longer. During winter, crappie are the most popular find, but you will want a good jerk-bait to coax them out of the water.
