According to the NH Fish and Game Department, fish species present include large mouth bass, small mouth bass, golden shiner, pickerel, yellow perch,white perch, common white sucker, brown bullhead, and yellow bullhead. Afew brook trout are also stocked each year.
Estimated that 100 power boats and 60 non motorized vessels use the lake regularly.

The lake residents are encouraged to carefully hand-remove the purple loose strife plants and their roots to prevent further spread.
