History & Status of the Fishery
The Lake is part of both the spring and fall inland rainbow trout seasons, and receives occasional fish surveys by IDNR or FPDCC Fisheries Staff to evaluate vegetation and fish species abundance and diversity. Smallmouth bass were supplementally stocked in this ?gravel pit? type lake to try and establish a population, but positive results have been difficult to verify so smallmouth bass stockings have been discontinued.

Approximately 14 species live in this system, including the above, as well as smallmouth bass, black crappie, green sunfish, warmouth, rock bass, yellow perch, yellow bass, yellow bullhead, golden shiners, gizzard shad, common carp, and spotted suckers. (Note: several of these species are indicative of fish movement from the Des Plaines River during high water events.)
