Amelia Lake - News & Reports

Fish Stocking

Fish stocking to supplement existing fisheries is performed on an annual basis. Channel catfish fingerlings are stocked every year at a density of 15 fish per acre.

Fish Habitat

In an effort to provide better fishing opportunities, several hinge trees were felled at Amelia in 2004. In addition, Christmas trees have been sunk each winter since 2004 near the fishing pier and other site on the lake to provide cover for sunfish species and hopefully increase catch rates for Amelia anglers.
