The fishing in this lake is so good that local fishing clubs hold open tournaments here. Other fish that call this lake home include yellow perch, carp, bluegill, pumpkinseed, rock bass, brown bullhead, channel catfish, chain pickerel, hybrid striped bass, and alewife. The primary purpose of this lake is flood control, which leads the water levels to vary drastically.
