HISTORY AND STATUS OF FISHERY

Buck Lake is a small, clear-water lake west of Burtrum known for its bluegill fishing. Three types of surveys were conducted on the lake in 2008. A special assessment was conducted in mid-June of 2008 targeting the panfish, electrofishing for bass was done in early June, and a lake survey completed in early August. Few fish were caught in the lake survey but the panfish assessment did fairly well as did the electrofishing effort. The lake has no development along its shoreline, however, cattle are allowed down to the water on the east side of the lake. Despite the pasture on the east side of the lake, water clarity was good in August. Buck Lake has a cattail fringe around most of the lake and there is a State owned wildlife management area on the south and west sides of the lake. Fast drop-offs and weed lines are about the only fishing structures in the lake.
Some nice bluegill up to 9 inches were observed in the panfish assessment and a fair number were over 7 inches in length. Anglers will have to work a little harder to find "keeper" size black crappie. The average size observed in the panfish assessment was around 7 inches, however, there were some crappie up to 12 inches measured. Because of Buck Lake's small size, anglers are encouraged to limit their harvest of the larger bluegill and crappie to sustain the quality fishery. The electrofishing effort netted bass up to 18 inches in length but most of the bass were less than 12 inches long. The northern pike population appears to be dominated by smaller fish as none of the fish caught in 2008 were over 25 inches in length. The panfish assessment showed that there are still some walleye swimming around in the lake. Stocking was discontinued in 1989 and anglers lucky enough to hook into a walleye are likely to catch a trophy.
Other species of the fish community include bowfin or dogfish, brown bullhead, hybrid sunfish, pumpkinseed sunfish, white sucker, yellow bullhead, and yellow perch. It appears that golden shiner are abundant in Buck Lake and may be the forage base for the pike as few yellow perch were found in the 2008 surveys. Yellow bullhead were the more abundant of the two species of bullhead.
