Most of the pond lies on private land while the a small portion butts up to a state park accessable by boat from East Grand Taverse Bay. The shallow lake often connects to the bay by a small stream, usually on private land but occasionally meandering onto the parkland. Small panfish often flourish in spring and fall but the pond often becomes to warm in the summer. Carp have also been sited. Says Matt
Grand Traverse Resort & Spa is a good site to get some rest;
if by chance you fancy fishing you can always stop by Northern Angler. This lake is so wonderful. If by chance you feel like fishing you may always stop by Pisces Fishing Charter Boats; if you have a boat, Elk River Marina is a tremendous marina.
