Bass ranged in size from 110 mm (4.3 inches) to a very impressive 538 mm (21.2 inches). Only 5 (6%) of the fish were over the 15 inches long. Good numbers of bass in the 9-10 inch size range were caught. Also noted that night were some very large brown bullheads and good numbers of black crappie, however most were small. Few adult trout were seen.
