ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Northern pike and smallmouth bass are the big fish in the lake. The smallmouth bass can most often be found on the eastern half of the lake between Roaring and Winnebago Brooks. Northern pike are found most abundantly in the southern end of the lake, which is quite weedy. The yellow perch grow big, but there is a health advisory on the consumption of them. The advisory states not to eat any over 12 inches in size and only eat one meal per month for perch under 12 inches due to high mercury levels.
