BLUEGILL

Fair

In 2017, bluegill collected while sampling ranged from 1.8” to 6.5” long. Only 1.5% of the sample exceeded 6”. The lack of vegetation and clear water makes this lake difficult for bluegill who grow. Bluegill grow fastest in fertile systems with lots of invertebrates and a reasonable amount of aquatic vegetation.

LARGEMOUTH BASS

Good

In 2017, largemouth bass collected measured 4.1” to 16.7" and weighed up to 2.3 pounds. 50% of the bass were >12” and 25% were > 15” (legal length). This size structure will maintain and slowly expand the bass population through natural reproduction.
