Como lake is a great lake for fast bluegill action. All one needs is a hook, bobber, and some worms or corn. Northern Pike, Walleye, and Channel Catfish were all sampled during last survey (2011) with Northern Pike being the most abundant. Yearling (about 9 inches long) and adult channel catfish were stocked in 2011. Como Zoo and the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory are located within walking distance in Como Park. Many different kinds of fish can be seen in Como Zoo's aquarium. A lake survey was conducted in August, 2011.
