The lake is approximately 40% of capacity, ice free and the state park boat ramp is usable for boaters. Anglers should expect fishing to be slow, following two years of no stocking, even though 10,000 trout were stocked last fall. With improved water levels expect stocking to start sometime in April or early May and Wild Horse should receive its full complement of 100,000 to 120,000 fish this year. However, just like after the 2007 die-off, it will take two to three years before anglers are catching 15 to 20 inch fish. There are some carryover trout in the lake from stocking a few years ago that are averaging around 23 inches. Expect wiper, catfish and perch fishing to be slow.
