Main lake is ok I think it’s overfished but blue hole as local anglers know it is amazing. First largemouth bass came from there large fish spotted in schools, I know for sure about large mouth bass and bluegill, not sure what else is there but it’s a great spot hard to get to but well worth it

I grew up fishing and swimming here. Some of my best memories are from here. It’s impressive that the exact same water slide that I went down 25 years ago is still standing. Fishing can be challenge due to it not being stocked but you can’t beat a spring fed lake. Some of the biggest fish I have caught came out of that lake and the first tournament I won was out there. Monster large mouth that’s for sure. #fishbrainchallenge
