Predominant Fish Species
All species are currently managed under statewide regulations.
At the current reservoir elevation, the rock rip-rap of the dam is the primary habitat. Brush piles have been placed along the dam face.
Catfishing is good year round for all the major species. Crappie fishing has been productive off the dam and the east side rocky points. Largemouth bass are good fishing shallow near flooded terrestrial trees and brush with a spinnerbait using a slow retrieve.
