UPDATE: Fishing 2017 Catch and Keep!

A professional analysis of our lake last fall provided us with an in depth understanding of Fish Lake habitats. Our fish population is growing, in part, due to the catch and release status we imposed after the 2013 winter caused a fish kill. To support that process we’ll be launching several initiatives this season. Some of these include stocking the lake with fingerling northern pike, continuing the harvest and removing carp through fishing and restoring catch and keep status starting June 17th, 2017.

Limits below are posted at the lake and in registration / concessions

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