Primary Species of Fish
Walleye, Northern Pike & Perch
This lake is known as a great walleye fishery. The perch and pike are here too. Most anglers come here to target walleye and if they use smaller sized baits, they end up catching walleye and perch. When they go with bigger minnow-style baits they tend to do well with walleye and northern pike. It’s a good lake to fish and you can expect to catch all 3 species of fish if you tie on a jig and lively minnow.
Secondary Species of Fish
Crappie, Largemouth Bass & Sunfish
While most people come here to fish for walleye, pike and perch, there are some other fish in this lake too. Crappie are here in low numbers. You can find some bluegill, rock bass and other sunfish too if you fish for them. There is a fishable population of largemouth bass here, however, many anglers never fish for them. Target the reeds and you will have a shot to run into some of these fish too.
