Deer creek has always seemed to be just an average so-so fishery, which is a shame. People elect to go there primarily because of its close proximity and not because of its stellar fishing opportunities. I think the DC could be so great if they could decide what kind of fishery it should be. Itís not known for being excellent for any one specific species.

Before they planted smallmouth it was a GREAT fishery...for rainbows, browns, largemouth bass, perch and walleye. All species were numerous and grew to large sizes.


Once the smallmouths hit the lake they ate all the crawdads, pushed the largemouths out of the rocks, ate up all the baby perch each year and the perch population crashed. Now the best you can hope for is a few stunted smallies.


Because of DWR plantings, there is still some good rainbow fishing at times. Also some walleyes, but not the numbers and sizes of old. Browns are still there but not in the sizes and numbers of the past. Used to have 100 plus days on perch to 13 inches. Lucky to catch a half dozen small perch most days now.


The biggest change for old-time Deer Creek fans is the horrendous increase in the power squadron. You can't even fish at daybreak without being run over by water skiers running the shoreline.
