Direct quote from DNR Fisheries Supervisor David Rowe:

"The DNR and Dane County's Land and Water Resources Department put a chemical into the lake that will kill off the carp but will not hurt any other species in the lake."

The lake isn't worth ice fishing yet. There was a huge problem with the carp degrading the lake (uprooting all the vegetation, leading to algae blooms), which lead to frequent winter kills which only the carp survived.

So, they killed off all the fish last march to start over and just replanted fish this year - all will be small. Please consider this & help the lake recover.

I've fished this lake in the summer. Lots of bullheads. I imagine there are good gills somewhere. Be careful if ice fishing. The lake is aerated but they usually have the aerator roped off. Please let me know how you do as no one ever fishes there.

Hello I was going to take a group of 5 - 4th grade girls fishing to Mendota, but have heard horror stories about the water quality right now, so I was hoping someone had info on the fishing at Indian. Gills and bass are what I think are in there- anyone - are they biting right now? Please message me with info. Thanks

How is the bass fishing here? It says on the page that there are northerns in here too, is that true? Any info is welcome.
