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||good||1-3 lbs||About 1100 lbs of channel catfish were stocked March 19. The stockings will occur once per month thru September.|
|Saugeye||no report||As the water cools saugeye tend to push shad into shallower water. Try casting shad colored crankbaits and plastics near rocky shorelines. If fishing from a boat, using slab spoons has proven to be productive in the cooler months.|
|Largemouth Bass||no report||Up to 3 pounds||When fishing for largemouth bass in the spring, try jigs, plastic baits, spinner baits, or crank baits fished around structures or along weed lines. The Largemouth Spawn should begin as the water temperatures reach 60 degrees.|
|Crappie||fair||Up to 12 inches||Crappie tend to congregate in large schools in cooler water. Fish around brushpiles and creek channel dropoffs with small jigs or spoons.|
|Bluegill Sunfish||no report||Up to 1 lb||With cooler water, fish for sunfish slowly around structures and weed lines. It is best to use worms or small jigs this time of year.|
