General Information

Currently the lake is very high. For daily water levels or release rates check out the Pomona COE web site, listed below.  Currently the stilling basin should be good because of the water releases.

  However  fishing at the outlet usually improves with higher water releases. Anglers have really caught some fish at the outlet because of the high water releases. Overall the crappie population is good with a few older fish that are in the 12 to 14 inch range and a lot of younger fish up to 11 inches.   

The catfish population in this impoundment is good, try fishing with live bait, liver or shad or assorted stink baits, especially after rain/inflow events.

Also remember this lake has a good wiper population.  These are often caught at the drop offs along creek channels, and around concentrations of gizzard shad.

The reservoir also supports some larger walleye and blue catfish, though in low numbers.  These numbers will be improved by future stockings. 

 Zebra mussels now inhabit this lake. This means take EXTRA PRECAUTION to help prevent the spread into uncontaminated impoundments.

"Clean, Drain and Dry" before  and after using any equipment on this lake.
