The 2,068-acre lake has a variety of fish species including bass, catfish, crappie, walleye, sunfish, sauger and others. Two fishing piers with handicap access, and plenty of shoreline fishing, makes this a great place to fish for anglers without boats.

Miles of rip rap and lots of docks give anglers plenty of targets when casting for their favorite species.
