Comments:  Fish Lake is a bass-panfish lake with an abundant population of Northern Pike. The 2008 DNR fish survey found good numbers of Bluegill, Black Crappie, and Northern Pike.  Panfish are small, and the Northern Pike are also on the small side - averaging 22 inches. Shorefishing may be impaired by heavy vegetation growth in the mid summer, but the pier is still good.
