Northeast Creek Reservoir - Fishing Opportunities

This scenic 187-acre reservoir has about 30 acres of submerged standing timber, which provides excellent cover for fish and fishing opportunities for anglers. The lake contains largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, crappie, chain pickerel, and channel catfish. Because the County treats the reservoir periodically with copper sulfate, phytoplankton production is limited. This affects the entire food chain and reduces fish production. As a result, the fish populations are not abundant. However, because fishing pressure is relatively light, the bass and catfish populations do provide for some good angling. Channel catfish are stocked annually to maintain a healthy population. If you fish on a weekday, you're likely to enjoy a bit of solitude on this beautiful and relatively remote lake.
