Annual Prospects Report

A great deal of habitat work has happened in this 192-acre lake in the last few years. Many cedar, oak and locust brush piles have been strategically placed in 8 feet of water or less and water lilies have been planted for additional habitat diversity. Bluegill and redear sunfish fishing is good around these brush piles and near lake points. Bluegill grow to 7.5-8” in length, and redear reach 8-10” regularly in this lake. There are good numbers of largemouth bass in the 12-15” protected slot.  Anglers are encouraged to keep the fish they catch that are below slot length. A concrete boat ramp, privy, and covered fishing dock are located on the southeast cove.
