It's a great place for birders, many species seen here not not seen elsewhere. Nice facilities too, with a boat dock and parking areas. This is a power plant lake, don't expect outstanding scenery.

Unfortunately the best fishing is typically by the discharge side of the power plant and its a solid mile walk down the damn. Place is overcrowded with channel catfish around 12" .

Nice place to fish as there isn't a fee to use your boat and the lake is hardly ever crowded. It is a bit shallow though.
