History & Status of the Fishery
The fish population in Mill Creek Lake is surveyed every two years. Muskie and channel catfish populations have been maintained by stocking. Additional species of aquatic plants have been established throughout the lake to reduce shoreline erosion and stabilize habitat. Fish attractors have been constructed and placed by the CCPD for greater fishing success. Moderate fertility levels slightly reduce the overall production of fish in this lake.

Longear sunfish and green sunfish are present, but are seldom attain harvestable size. Yellow bullheads and black bullheads reach a respectable size (12?+) in Mill Creek Lake. Gizzard shad, golden shiners, and white suckers are present and serve as the primary forage base. Unfortunately, common carp were collected for the first time in 2015. Their introduction is from an unknown source and their effect on habitat is highly undesirable. Never move fish from Mill Creek Lake to other water bodies, or fish from other waterbodies to Mill Creek Lake ? inappropriate species or diseases can be transferred, causing permanent and significantly negative consequences!
