Smallmouth and largemouth bass do well here. Growth rates are above the state average for these species. Unfortunately, the sampling indicated a general scarcity of bass 12 inches and larger, indicating heavy fishing pressure for these species. Chain pickerel provide good fishing with some sizable fish 20 inches and better. The sea-run alewives provide a good forage base.
Panfishing should be good here. Although the brown bullheads appeared quite scarce, there were plenty of fat bluegills and a large, underharvested, yellow perch population. The perch appeared to be of small average size, but there were ample numbers in the 7 to 8 inch range during the last survey, and the situation may have improved somewhat during the intervening years.
