Bass, catfish, walleye, crappie and white bass are popular targets here. There are virtually no amenities, lodging or campgrounds at the lake. There is a boat ramp as well as other places around the lake with primitive launching options. This is an ideal lake for fishing from shore and fishing from kayaks and canoes.
