Muskellunge population is good for a lake of this size. Northern Pike are slow growing, but the species is self sustaining. Small Mouth and Large Mouth Bass and Pan fish populations are reproducing naturally. Walleye population is about average for the region, but natural reproduction is limited for this species, and numbers are bolstered by stocking. The Rhinelander’s Morningside organization stocks 7-10 inch Walleyes each October in Lake Thompson and Lake George.
Basic Fish Management: walleye, musky, bass, panfish
