My brother and I already come down fishing to that area, we would love to fish your pond for crappies and bluegills. Let me know if this would be ok, coming this Friday 4/14 already.
61° - 65° F
I spoke via email to the park manager and he said the lake was lowered several feet this fall and also treated with a small dose of rotenone to kill off the majority of the gizzard shad they found this summer. He also said the rotenone was "effective so far with small kills on sport fish". He suggested calling the DNR staff there (319-293-7185) or Troublesome Creek Outfitters (319-293-384 to get the most up-to-date information.
Hope this helps!
