There are INDEED, walleye in this lake. Locals have put about a dozen in this lake, local charter caught about 4 in live well. My good friend also caught one in about 5 feet off a mepps spinner. This fish was VERY messed up and deformed, 0 idea why but walleyes and bluegills are in this lake. Locals stock it but it is very slim and almost impossible to catch. Smallmouth fishing is very tough here, but i pulled out an 8 and have pulled out several 3s-6s. MONSTER smallmouths in this lake, just very hard to get them to commit since the clarity of the lake. I fish here year round and know it like back of my hand, legit small mouth in this lake just very, very tough..
