This 85-acre lake in Putnam County should provide some of the best largemouth bass angling in the Northeast Region. Twenty-two percent of bass sampled from the most recent electrofishing survey were at least 15 inches long. Anglers should be aware of the largemouth bass regulation change that occurred within the last year, as the lake went from a 15-inch minimum length limit on largemouth bass to the current regulation of a 14- to 18-inch closed slot. The lake also has an abundant population of channel catfish, so anglers should find plenty of 1-3-pound fish, with some 5-8-pound catfish available. Anglers are encouraged to harvest their limit of 4 channel catfish per day. Bluegill 6 inches and longer are not abundant, so fishing for that species will generally be slow. Boaters are reminded that outboard motors in excess of 10 horsepower are allowed but must be operated at slow, no-wake speed.
