Signal crayfish are fairly common in the lake, but fishing for these is restricted to land owners. The lake also has a sparse population of brown trout. The most used fishing methods are trolling and jigging, but angling, spin fishing and ice angling works out well. There are possibilities to fish either from a boat or from off the shore.
