I saw as many as 10 fishermen there at one time. It was good for bass a few years ago with black plastic salamanders. I caught and released an 18" bass on an unbaited #14 gold treble hook near the outlet once. When the water is hot, many fish hit unbaited hooks there. Never saw a pickerel there. Caught common carp, feral goldfish, brown bullhead, yellow bullhead, gizzard shad, golden shiner, black crappie, white perch, largemouth bass, bluegills, pumpkinseed sunfish, snapping turtles, red-eared sliders, painted turtles, etc. there on my homemade corn meal bait or an unbaited hook on 2 or 4 lb test line.
