Mile Hill Lake provides average fishing for largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie and channel catfish. Water clarity is usually excellent. Largemouth bass catch rates are moderate for 12- to 15-inch fish providing catch and release fishing. Like all public lakes, there is a 15-inch minimum length limit on bass to protect them from over harvest. Bluegills and crappies provide fish of harvest size. Channel catfish are stocked during odd numbered years and fish over 20-inches were in the latest fisheries survey.(2017)
