Catch and Keep Fishing

As part of our sustainability efforts we’ve launched several initiatives including stocking the lake with fingerling northern pike, encouragement of harvest and removal of carp and restoring catch and keep status every mid-June, after the spawning period.   Please abide by our catch and keep limits below.

Catch and Keep limits below are also posted at the lake

  • 3 bass per day under 14″
  • 5 bluegill per day
  • 5 northern pike per day
  • 5 crappie per day
  • 5 yellow perch per day
  • 5 catfish per day
  • Unlimited carp
