4 star rating
This lake has a lot of accessible shoreline along the east side. It has 1 boat ramp. It is free to launch a boat. The Bass fishing can be fairly decent at times. Particularly on the north east shore along the weed line. The west side has lots of underwater brush & fallen trees for Crappie fishing. 9in. crappie are typical but I have landed several 14 inchers. I have caught many decent catfish while crappie fishing. I fish this lake a lot.
