Upper Empire Lake is scheduled to be stocked with fall trout the week of Oct. 14. Because of low water levels, Lower Empire Lake will not be stocked. Instead, those fish will be released into Upper Empire and Butterfield lakes.

Warmwater species like bluegill, crappie, yellow perch, and largemouth bass should be biting well in the summer, but aquatic vegetation can be thicker in the shallow areas. Try frog imitation lures and popping lures around weed lines to entice the bass.
