The 1998 walleye catch, while not very high for lakes of this class, was one of the higher catches observed in this lake, historically. Several walleye year classes, all produced naturally, were included in the catch, although none were particularly strong. Walleye growth had been slow, probably due to the lack of yellow perch and competition with lake whitefish and northern cisco. Most of the walleye collected in 1998 had been feeding on insects.Northern pike were relatively abundant, and several larger fish were observed. Northern pike as old as nine years were taken - unusually old fish for lakes in this area. Northern pike growth had been somewhat faster than average, probably because of the availability of a northern cisco forage base.Smallmouth bass were also taken in 1998, in average numbers and size. Lake whitefish were very abundant, both for lakes of this class, and for this lake, historically.
