On August 7, the lake experienced an algae bloom that suffocated the lake of oxygen and killed the majority of bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish.
The County of Orange has been working with specialists to assure that the water quality is back to normal. Although improved, it is not feasible to open the lake back up for fishing with the amount of fish lost.
Rip N Lips, Inc. will be working closely with the County of Orange to replace / re- stock the fish lost in the early Spring of 2015.
The lake will re-open on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 for our Trout Season Opener. 2,000lbs of rainbow trout up to 15lbs in size will be stocked every Wednesday through April 2015.
