Fishes of Interest to Anglers:  Rocky Fork Lake has good populations of largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, walleye, channel and flathead catfish, bullheads and carp.  A few smallmouth bass are also present.  Gizzard shad is the main forage species.

Methods of Fishing and Best Fishing Sites:  Largemouth bass are taken on driving and surface lures, plastic worms, jigs and live worms around fallen trees and stumps along rocky shorelines and in bays.  Bluegill anglers using redworms and waxworms have good catches around fallen trees and along drop-offs.  Live minnows and small plastic grub jigs are good for crappies near the shoreline brush an fallen trees, along steep shorelines with submerged cover.  Walleye anglers are successful using live nightcrawlers or minnows near the bottom, or trolling deep diving lures in the lower half of the lake near points and drop-offs.  Excellent catches of channel catfish, bullheads, and a few flathead catfish are taken on nightcrawlers, soft craws, chicken livers, and cut baits in the upper end and hear the eastern shore.
