History & Status of the Fishery
The fish populations of the Paris Twin Lakes are intensively surveyed every two years, primarily by electrofishing. The fish are measured, weighed, and scales collected for aging before releasing the fish alive. Hybrid striped bass and saugeye populations are stocked annually through the IDNR hatcheries and are surveyed annually.

Yellow bass, longear sunfish, green sunfish, and yellow bullheads are present, but are seldom harvested by fishermen due to the small size attained by most of these species. Gizzard shad and golden shiners are the primary forage.
