Bass: Open Season is between the 3rd Saturday in June to December 15th. Concerns have been expressed of fishing out of season and in shallow waters when the Bass are on their nests.
Bass make their nests close to shore in shallow water. Please be careful not to disturb them with power watercraft, swimming or fishing to close to shore in May or June. The picture on the right is an aerial view of multiple bass nests in June.
Anglers are kindly asked not to fish too close to the shoreline which is commonly reserved for safe swimming, family fun (people, docks and rafts), water habitat (fish, frogs, minks, beavers, newborn animals, nests, etc.) and nature gazing.
Monofilament line is very harmful to wildlife and boat propellers. Please use our Monofilament recycling containers by discarding used or broken fishing line in these bins. Our volunteers will collect the line and mail it to Berkley Conservation for processing.
