The fish we have in the ponds are bass, red ear sunfish, and primarily catfish. The left and right ponds have roughly 100 catfish and the center pond has 300 catfish. Because of the large number of fish the ponds are aerated, and they are fed once a week. The bass fishing is good with lures, the bluegill (red ear) fishing is great with red worms. Catfishing is best with earthworms on bobber just above the bottom. CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY.
Fishing on the lake includes carp, catfish, bass, crappie, and some of the best bluegill fishing in the state. Fish the big lake like you would any large body of water. Remember the water is spring fed and is very clear. Chartreuse and brighter colors do not seem to work as well as pumpkin seed or darker colors. CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY. Only kayaks are allowed for fishing on the lake.
