July 29, 2018. The dog days of summer has hit the lake. Fished for bass and northern several times from a boat (June-July), but the bite was very slow. Bottom-fishing from shore has been quite enjoyable. Petersen Park has a nice shoreline and piers from which to fish. Several species of fish can be caught from shore; to include bluegill, crappie, bass, northern, catfish and carp. West Shore Beach is maintained well and easy to fish from shore. Looking forward to the autumn bite.
May 2018: I've fished McCullom about four times this year (April-May) from a boat. It has been an excellent spring fishery. Very nice, healthy bass and pike. I noticed bluegills and crappies "popping" just about everywhere in the lake; schools of big-shouldered carp cruising around, too. Vegetation is starting to turn green, Petersen Park put in fishing piers, and looks like the lake is waking up from its winter slumber.
