Love this reservoir. It is a man made reservoir and the EPA report reports that the body of water is healthy and safe to eat fish from (no violations on the EPA site!) catfish were had with worms and a crappie rig. The lake is very shallow 20hp limit on outboards here. Water was pretty clean and zero algae bloom humongous Lilly pads, plenty of places to find bass. We observed plenty of Perch (small) plenty of catfish (caught 3) and of course bluegill. No need to over complicate things with a bait the couple fishing by the NW boat dock was catching plenty with a bobber, hook and minnows. Nice clean lake hardly any boats on it. Borders OHio and Pennsylvania. This lake we will be coming back to.

I wanted to talk to people here to find out as much information as I could. They said the lake above the overflow. drained two years ago. Perhaps they did fill it back up, there were trophy Muskie flopping in the mud…but the lake is becoming back to where it was before. The over flow is nice, I seen fish swim up the flow BACK INTO THE LAKE! Also was told someone was fool hooking Muskie with a couple buddies..
