    The Fishing Regulations brochure is available for download. The summaries listed below are a partial listing provided for your benefit.

      Moorland Pond has decent fishing for bluegill, crappie, yellow perch, and largemouth bass. Channel catfish are stocked on a regular basis. Shore fishing access is good, but if you want to get on the water you'll need to carry in a kayak or a canoe. Trout are stocked annually during the cold water season and fishing can be excellent following a stocking event.(2020)
