This chart of what fish are in which lakes used to be on the NPS site, but apparently no longer is. There's been some questions about it's accuracy, but on the whole has seemed pretty consistent with reports.

No fish in Hatchet or Desor? High mercury in Angleworm and Siskiwit? And I've never even heard of a pumpkinseed fish!

The more you know...

Pumpkinseed is basically a blue gill. Typically they are more green and have a red/black spot on their gill cover instead of a blue/black one like blue gills. You've almost certainly caught one before and not realized it if you fished blue gills before.

Ah, now I know why my son spent hours fishing in Desor last summer and didn't even have a nibble. The view from his fishing rock was outstanding though! Thanks for posting this chart.
