The number of walleye caught per gill net ranked in the middle of all assessments done on this lake, but was higher than three-fourths of the netting results for this class of lake. The average weight of walleye caught was below the average for the lake and the lake class. The most recent walleye stocking occurred in 2004 and 1990, but all walleye caught in gill nets were naturally produced. Ages of gill-netted walleye were 2-7 and 9. Growth rates had been close to the average for the lake class. The number of northern pike caught per gill net ranked above the middle for the lake historically and below the middle for the lake class. The average weight was above the middle value for the lake, and above three-fourths of the values recorded for the lake class. Northern pike caught by gill nets were age 1 to age 5. Growth after age 1 had been fast for this area. The gill-net catch of smallmouth bass declined in 2005 compared to the two previous assessments (2003 and 1998), but was still the third highest for the lake. It was higher than three-fourths of the catches recorded for this class of lake. The 2005 trap-net catch was low for both the lake and the lake class. The growth rate of bass appeared to be somewhat slow for this area for the first two years, and then to increase. The number of yellow perch caught in gill nets was the third highest for the lake and among the higher values for the lake class. The average size was small, but a few larger fish were caught. The number of white sucker caught per gill net ranked just above the middle value in assessments of both this lake and similar lakes. The average weight of white sucker was higher than roughly three-fourths of the values recorded for the lake and the lake class. In addition to the standard gill nets and trap nets, small-mesh (0.25-inch) trap nets were set. These nets caught age-0 fish, including many smallmouth bass and yellow perch, several white sucker, a few black crappie and walleye, and one northern pike.
