Comments: Sunset Pond offers fishing for many game species. Near the culverts on the south end is a popular place to fish as well as several areas on the north end plus the outlet structure. Expect excessive plant growth by midsummer in this very shallow lake. The 2009 DNR fish survey found abundant bluegill and Northern Pike. Crappie abundance was low and Largemouth Bass was moderate to low. A lake survey is scheduled for 2014 and will provide new information on the fish population in Sunset Pond.
