Species

Rank

Fish Status

BLACK CRAPPIE

Good

The current crappie population is primarily made up of individuals ranging from 9 - 11 inches in good body condition.

BLUEGILL

Good

The bluegill population was sampled by 30 fish in the fall 2019 electrofishing survey. They ranged in size from 1 to 8.7 inches in length with an average body condition rating of 94. The current bluegill population is rated as very good. A future improvement in the bass population size structure as well as some aquatic vegetation management will help maintain this good bluegill size structure.

CHANNEL CATFISH

Good

The channel catfish population was evaluated by 3 catfish ranging from 18 – 21 inches. They had a relative weight value of 99. IDNR will add Brock Lake to the channel catfish stocking schedule starting in 2020.

LARGEMOUTH BASS

Developing

In 2019, the largemouth bass population was evaluated by 102 bass collected by Pulsed-DC electrofishing. The largemouth bass population appears to be defined by a high percentage of fish from 5 – 12 inches with body condition of 89. We did not collect any bass over 13 inches. The collection rate was 204/hr which indicates a high density.
