It also receives larger rainbows in the fall which provide good fishing even in the winter months. There is good fishing for stocked rainbows during the fall, winter and spring, with good Largemouth Bass, Bluegill Sunfish, Yellow Perch from the spring through the summer. Black Crappie fishing can be good during the cooler months of the fall.
