Gamefish included largemouth bass, chain pickerel, rainbow trout and brown trout. Nongame species are yellow perch, white perch, black crappie, bluegill, pumpkinseed, red breasted sunfish, golden shiners, killifish, brown bullhead, yellow bullhead, and American eel. Walleye have been reported from here, but none were found during sampling operations. Forest Lake receives trout during both the spring and fall stocking seasons. The majority of trout are rainbows nine inches or better; the rest are brown trout. Heaviest pressure on trout is from late April to late May. Largemouth bass here display average growth rates, but the population is over harvested, and quality fish over 12 inches are scant. Chain pickerel growth rates appear slow. Yellow perch fishing should be good, as 60% of the sample was eight inches and better. The lake also has a good population of brown bullheads 10 inches and better.
