Lakes Mitchell and Cadillac are noted as fine walleye fisheries. The 1,150-acre Lake Cadillac is an extremely popular attraction and anglers can expect good catches of perch, walleye, panfish and bass. The quarter-mile canal that connects the two lakes is a popular place for children to shore fish in the park, and in the evening, many fish for bullheads.
