HISTORY AND STATUS OF FISHERY

Kimball Lake has a steep, marl bottom along most of the shoreline, and very clear water, causing fishing to be difficult for many people.

Since 2007, walleye have been stocked in odd numbered years at double the standard rate (2 lbs/littoral acre in alternate years, 74 lbs total) in an attempt to increase walleye abundance. However, this has not resulted in increased gill net catches. The best walleye catches have resulted from fry stocking and future stocking will be done primarily with walleye fry.

Walleyes were caught in average numbers (1.3/gill net) for this type of lake in the 2016 survey. All of these fish were over 17", with an average length of 22.7". Smaller fish were seen and netted while largemouth bass electrofishing in the spring of 2016 at the rate of 31.3/hr. run-time. These walleyes had an average length of 12.4".

Northern pike numbers have remained fairly steady the past three surveys, with the 2016 catch at 4.8/gill net. Average length was 22.6" and 31% of the fish measured 24" or larger.

Largemouth bass might be your best option if fishing Kimball. They were sampled by electrofishing, yielding a catch rate of 110.2/hr. Average length was 10.9" and 41% were 12" or larger. Two larger (18"+) smallmouth bass were also captured.

It may be hard to find large panfish on Kimball. Bluegill were mostly small, with an average size of only 4.8" and no crappies were captured (although some were seen while electrofishing).

Tullibee are also present in Kimball Lake and were captured at the rate of 3.7/gill net. Average length of these fish was 11.7".

INVASIVE SPECIES
  • Zebra Mussel
  • Eurasian Watermilfoil

Recreational activities such as recreational boating, angling, waterfowl hunting, and diving may spread aquatic invasive species. Some aquatic invasive species can attach to boats, while others can become tangled on propellers, anchor lines, or boat trailers. Many species can survive in bilge water, ballast tanks, and motors or may hide in dirt or sand that clings to nets, buckets, anchors, and waders. Fortunately, completing simple steps can prevent the transport of aquatic invasive species.
