I saw a report a guy claiming he caught some pike here recently and i have had friends of friends tell me about them catching pike in Hopewell...
Anyone know anything about toothie critters in Hopewell??
There are some small pickerel in the lake plus about two years ago there was a monster musky caught out in front of the swimming pool area (it was featured in the PA Outdoor News). YEARS ago there was supposedly a decent Pike population in the lake but I am pretty sure they have all been gone for a number of years now. I have fished that lake a few hundred times and have only caught Bass, Pickerel, Crappies, Sunnies and Yellow Perch. There's a bunch of very large Carp in the lake as well. About four years back I was chatting with one of the Park Rangers and he said there were a few small Musky still in the lake.

around 2008-2009 i saw a picture of a big musky caught by the lillys to the right of the boat launch. the picture was shown to my by one of the boat rental kids. He was a friend of one of my good friends. i looked up old biologist reports and found a early spring 2002 trap net survey and they did catch four northern pike between 24 and 30 inches
Plenty of folks out today, even a few brave souls down near point this morning. I don't think anyone felt safe enough to venture near dam. This afternoon everyone stayed up a near the island end of lake.
