In recent surveys a numbe of bass in excess of 15 inches were collected and the largest fish were up to 21 inches. Bluegill abundance is moderate but size structure is only fair. Most fish are less than 7 inches. Crappie abundance is also moderate, but size quality is good. Fish up to 12 inches were recnetly surveyed. Channel catfish are abundant and many fish in the 18 to 24 inch range are available.(2015)
