This 118-acre lake provides excellent Largemouth bass and Crappie fishing opportunity. There is a 12- to 15-inch protected slot length limit continues to improve the bass population.  Bass anglers can expect the majority of their catch to be fish 12 to 15 inches long.  However, catches of large bass are increasing.  Largemouth bass in lakes this size can be easily over harvested.  Anglers should focus their harvest on bass less than 12 inches long.  Larger bass can be released to fight again. The crappie fishery continues to improve in this lake. At times, crappie anglers can experience good catches of fish between 10 to 12 inches long with few exceeding 12 inches. Fishing the willow mats around the bank in early spring with jigs or minnows should produce some great crappie fishing action. A high-quality channel catfish population exists in the lake with several fish longer than 20 inches.  Anglers should use night crawlers or prepared baits fished off the bottom. This lake provides excellent bank fishing opportunities with all the lake being accessible. There is also a concrete boat ramp if you would like to use a boat.
