Rainbow trout, Largemouth bass, Pumpkinseed, Rock bass, Brown bullhead
Anglers are able to catch some largemouth bass and panfish right off shore. Although not always plentiful, they do offer some good action.
Approximately 250 rainbow trout are stocked each Spring. The lake is fairly deep, so using a canoe/kayak can improve your chances of catching larger trout holding near the bottom.
