A professional analysis of Fish Lake during the fall of 2017 provided us with an in depth understanding of lake habitats. The news is good! Our fish population is growing, in part, due to the catch and release status we imposed after the winter of 2013 caused a fish kill. To support the continued recovery of our lake’s habitats we’re launching several initiatives. Some of these include stocking the lake with fingerling northern pike, continuous encouragement of the harvest and removal of carp and restoring catch and keep status every June. Before June we will allow fishing on a catch and release basis to allow spawning. .
