Predominant Fish Species
No maps available
All species are currently managed under statewide regulations.
Largemouth bass and crappie fishing historically has been good to excellent for quality and trophy-sized fish. Over the past several years severe drought has drastically reduced water levels and fish populations.
When the lake fills again, acres of brush and black willow trees will be flooded to provide cover.
Crappie, bass, and catfish fishing will remain poor until the lake catches significant water and maintains good levels for at least 2 to 3 years.
