HISTORY AND STATUS OF FISHERY

Goose Lake is a shallow basin located five miles south of Terrace in Pope County. Maximum depth is approximately 17.0 feet. Winterkill events were common on Goose Lake in the past. Water level has been increasing for many years and is evidenced by dead standing timber fringing the shoreline. Increased depth and moderating winters has allowed establishment of a fishery following stocking of adult broodstock in 2008. Dense algal blooms can occur during summer months. The primitive carry-in public access consists of a steep trail approximately 200 yards to the lake.

An introductory stocking of adult bluegill and largemouth bass was completed in late spring of 2008. No bluegill were sampled in 2012. Success of largemouth bass stocking was evident in survey findings. Five year classes were represented in the sample. Largemouth bass are abundant. Daytime electrofishing yielded 119.0 bass per hour. Mean length of sampled fish was 7.7 inches. The largest individual measured 16.6 inches. Growth is rapid. Age-4 fish reached 15.0 inches.

Also present in the fishery are black bullheads, green sunfish and white suckers. Increasing gamefish density has reduced recruitment and abundance of black bullheadsand green sunfish.

In an attempt to expand the current gamefish community, adult bluegill and black crappie broodstock were stocked in Goose Lake in 2012.
