Species Rating Size Baits, Method, & Location
Channel catfish Fair 10" to 10 lb. Anglers are having success with cut bait lakewide.  Excellent numbers of catfish, many in the 5 lb range, were sampled last fall. Catfishing should be excellent this spring.
Largemouth Bass Excellent 6" to 15" The bass aren't huge, but anglers have been catching some in the 2-3 lb range.  Use traditional techniques near brush.  Some bass up to 15 inches were sampled last fall. Fish for them near rocks and in the vegetation.
Northern Pike Excellent Up to 19" Anglers are catching lots of small pike, up to about 20".  They are dispersed lakewide and will take most any bait in your tackle box.
Bluegill Fair Up to 6" The biggest bluegill in fall samples were around 6 inches.
General Comments
The lake is responding nicely to renovation and angling should be very good for channel catfish this year. Lots of small bass, northern pike, and bluegill will be available to anglers in 2014.
