NOTE: This list may not be all inclusive of all speices present in Carey Lake (Dupont).
Carey Lake is managed primarily for walleye and panfish. Good populations of northern pike also live in the lake. Walleye fingerlings were stocked in 1990, 1993, and 1995. The walleye gill net catch rate (2.0/set) was within the expected range for this type of lake, and similar to previous catch rates on Carey Lake. The mean length was 16.1 inches, ranging in length from 10.6 to 24.0 inches. The mean weight was 1.4 pounds. Most of the walleye sampled were from stocked years, indicating poor natural reproduction. Growth rates for walleye exceeded the statewide mean for ages 1-3. Black crappie sampled in gill nets had a catch rate (6.2/set) that exceeded the expected range. The mean length of gill net sampled crappie was 6.7 inches, ranging in length from 5.3 to 9.0 inches. Trap nets also sampled crappie at a catch rate (12.1/set) that exceeded the expected range. The mean length of trap net sampled crappie was 6.9 inches, ranging from 3.8 to 10.8 inches. Growth rates for all sampled crappie were below the statewide mean. The northern pike gill net catch rate (4.2/set) was within the expected range and exceeded historical catch rates. The mean length of sampled northern pike was 23.9 inches, with a maximum length of 40.3 inches. The mean weight was 3.9 pounds. Growth rates exceeded (>115%) the statewide mean for ages 1-4. Bluegill were sampled in trap nets at a catch rate (10.9/set) that exceeded the expected range. The mean length was 6.4 inches, ranging from 4.0 to 8.4 inches. White sucker were sampled in gill nets at a catch rate (12.8/set) that exceeded the expected range. The high abundance of white sucker may explain the fast northern pike growth rates as white sucker is an important prey species for northern pike. Other species sampled in test nets include: common and golden shiner, pumpkinseed sunfish, yellow bullhead, and yellow perch.
