Anglers should try bank fishing for them on the north cove. There is a 12- to 15-inch protected slot length for large-mouth bass. Anglers regularly catch bass exceeding 15-inches. They are encouraged to keep bass that are below 12-inches. Crappie anglers should target submerged brush piles and standing willow mats. They can experience good catches of fish between 10 to 12 inches long with some reaching 15 inches.  There are 2 concrete boat ramps, 2 privies, and 2 fishing docks at the lake.
