The reservoir is 275 surface acres at full capacity and is managed at a high, stable level to maintain bass and rainbow trout fisheries. The average depth is 6 feet and the maximum is 9 feet. Angling for largemouth bass is slow until the water temperature reaches 60°F, usually around mid-May. Bass generally average from 11 to 12 inches and spinner baits and rubber worms are the most commonly fished lures. Stocked rainbow trout, on the other hand, are active year around, with the most successful months being March through June and September through October. If winter produces ice thick enough to support anglers, ice fishing can also be productive for trout. Growth of trout is good, often producing trophy fish up to 20-inches. Black bullheads are also found and, so far, are an underutilized resource. Camping is allowed at Dave Deacon Campground located four miles northwest of the reservoir.
