    What species of fish are stocked there? I have a friend who owns a cottage on the lake and want to learn the spots and type of fishing to use there.

    I know there is Large Mouths, Catfish, Crappie, and Perch. I donno what else. I am just getting back into the fishing scene so I have not fished there in years. There are a lot of points and good dropoffs. Can't help much on the honey holes.

    Glad to see a post on this lake. I am going camping there the weekend of the 29th. I will have to let you all know how it was.

    While I have not camped there it does appear to be a decent campground. I am about 15 miles from this lake.

    My friend said the water is very clear and fairly deep. Any ideas on the techniques best used for this lake?

    I am guessing with the clearer water the fish will be a bit more color selective. Easier to spook, and hang closer to cover.
