         Welcome to Riss Lake

The Riss Lake Fishing Club seeks to encourage the preservation and enjoyment of Riss Lake by all members of our community.

To give children and adults an opportunity to learn about fishing and meet others who enjoy the sport.

             2016 Selective Harvest Goals
  • The club should continue to harvest up to 1000 bass per year through angling establishing a 13-18" slot limit on bass.  This slot size limit should provide plenty of bass harvest opportunity while better protecting bass to larger size.  The key to this regulation working is continued harvest of bass smaller than 13".  This regulation could be viewed as temporary regulation (2-4 years) until the bass population is balanced and achieving our goal.  Anglers who catch a large bass would be able to harvest the fish as a trophy if they desired.
  • Green Sunfish compete with bass and other game species for food and space and should be removed when caught.  Follow this link for proper identification; Green Sunfish Identification.
  • As for table fare we encourage you to harvest up to your daily limit of 30 crappie.  Not only are they tasty critters but this actually helps their overall population.  They are fast growers and reproduce readily, a stunted population would be the main concern if not harvested.  Once they get to filleting size they provide little value other than the dinner table.
