Round Lake delivers close to home fishing for me. This lake dose have an abundance of Largemouth Bass in the 1-5lb. range,however I've been fishing it on a weekly basis for about 15 yrs. and in that time have only seen 2 pike and didn't catch either one.Walleye are nonexistent in my opinion. If Bass & Panfish are what your after you'll enjoy this lake, as long as you don't mind HEAVY weeds & over population of Carp. This is buy no means a 5 star lake...

Round Lake delivers quality fish; Bass, Northern Pike and Walleye are very challenging; there is an abundance of bluegill and perch in the lake to keep the fishing tough at times. Spring yields the best Bass and Pike, the north end of the lake before the Bass spawn can be very productive with fish in the 4-8 lb class and Northern Pike in the 38 ? 45 inch range, this is the only lake I have fished where the nasty cold days can be the best days to fish, this past year in April on a cold rainy, windy and 45 degree day I managed 6 bass in the 6, 7 lb range I was working a rattle trap as fast as I could retrieve it in 5 ft of water, I was only out on the lake for 2 hours as the cold rain and wind finally drove me to go home, the summer can be fun and you can learn to use any lure you want with the drop offs open water and rock lines that are scattered throughout the lake, red black natural and purple are the best colors, white and chartreuse a close 2nd, even though Round Lake is exceptionally smaller then most lakes the fishing can be more challenging and satisfying then the rest, but beware it is considered a private lake and you will need to know someone to get on it.
