HISTORY AND STATUS OF FISHERY

Eagle Lake has a diverse, warm water fishery best known for bass, panfish, and northern pike. However, a moderate to good walleye fishery also exists in this lake. Walleye spawning habitat is limited in Eagle Lake and this fishery is sustained by stocking.

Unfortunately, like in many area lakes, large bluegills are no longer found in catchable numbers. Bluegills over eight or nine inches were common in Eagle Lake in the three studies before 1970. Only a few longer than seven inches were sampled in 2012. Bluegill growth rates are slower than they were previous to 1970. Special bluegill harvest regulations may have potential for restoring large fish in this lake if there is strong public support.

Walleyes sampled in 2012 were relatively large with an average weight of 3.0 pounds. Over 62% of these walleyes were attributed to a single year class (2005) stocked as fingerlings during a stocking study. Recent fry stockings have not been as successful as that of 2001 and a return to fingerling stocking is likely.

Northern pike, largemouth bass, and black crappie are also popular and relatively abundant angling targets in Eagle Lake. Large fish of these species are not abundant, but can be found within these waters.

Eagle Lake's small size (312 acres) and increasing shoreline development make it potentially vulnerable to declining water quality and fish populations. Watershed landowners can help maintain water quality and property values by using good land stewardship practices. Anglers can help provide larger fish for catching by releasing medium sized fish. Anglers are particulary encouraged to voluntarily release pike over 24 inches and keep smaller ones for eating.
