The lake is stocked every season. The following fish are found in the lake:

Bluegill - Also called 'bream,' bluegill bait includes earthworms, crickets, grubs, grasshoppers, spinners, poppers, and flies.

Largemouth Bass - One of the most popular game fish, the largemouth bass will eat just about anything.

Redbreast Sunfish - Also known as a 'robin,' this fish has a yellowish to orange colored belly. Although smaller than the bluegill, the sunfish prefers the same bait types.

White Crappie - Usually found near submerged brush or logs. The bait they prefer are live minnows and 'crappie jigs.'

Mosquitofish - A small, minnow-like fish, found near the shore. As the name implies, they eat mosquito larvae. Not much of a game fish though.
