boat launch area near the bridge and several angler access points,
including one at the dam. At 100 acres, it has plenty of water to support a variety of
good sport fish populations, including largemouth bass, crappie, catfish
and white bass. There is a good, under-fished population of largemouth
bass in this lake. The lake record is 6.54 pounds, caught in March 2004.
Some nice crappie are present as well.
