Zebra Mussels    

Adult Zebra Mussels were found 7/31/08 at Lake Afton.

The zebra mussels reproduce during the warmer summer months and veligers (larval zebra mussels) are present in the water column. Zebra mussel veligers are too small to be seen with the unaided eye and they can be found in boat livewells, minnow buckets, boat bilges, water toys and anything else that is capable of holding even a small amount of water.

Be sure to drain all equipment before leaving the lake to avoid moving veligers to other waters. THIS INCLUDES MINNOW BUCKETS, BOAT LIVEWELLS AND BILGES!!!

REMEMBER!! Zebra Mussels are also present in Clearwater Creek below the spillway!

White Perch no report Up to 1 lb Use a small hook with a small piece of worm, or a small spinning lure. Remember that white perch may be possessed or used as live bait ONLY while on this water, and may not be transported alive.
Channel Catfish Fair 1-3 lbs Channel cat were stocked on March 16, and will be stocked monthly until September.  A few reports of catfish being caught, and fishing will be picking up in the next few weeks as the water warms.
Saugeye Poor   No Recent Reports
Largemouth Bass Fair Up to 3 pounds Largemouth bass samples in 2014 showed quite a few nice looking bass.  Bass fishing at Afton should be better in 2015 than it has been in recent years. 
Crappie Good Up to 12 inches Fish around brushpiles and creek channel dropoffs with small jigs or spoons. 2014 samples showed crappie up to 14".  Crappie fishing in 2015 should be good.
Bluegill Sunfish Good Up to 1 lb Bluegill can easily be caught with a small piece of worm or a small spinner or jig.
