Fairy Stone Lake - Fishing Opportunities
The largemouth bass population is dominated by 13-15 inch fish with some bass up to 20 inches. The number of big fish has recently declined but the number of mid sized bass has been increasing. Fairystone is a shallow lake and most bass are found away from the shoreline in deeper water or congregate around the numerous fallen trees scattered around the shoreline.
Crappie are not very abundant but the size structure of these fish is good. Most crappie are between 8-12 inches with an occasional crappie reaching 13 inches. Look for crappie on the outside edges of fallen trees.
The bluegill population has remained stable for many years. The largest bluegill average 6 inches. Angling opportunities for sunfish at Fairy Stone Lake should remain good as long as shad are not introduced into the lake.
