The South Bay is a very productive area of Lake Champlain, frequented by sport species such as northern pike, largemouth bass and both chain and grass pickerel. Yellow perch, white perch, white crappies, pumpkinseed sunfish, brown bullheads and catfish are also common. In the spring, large gar are abundant inshore. Large common carp are abundant in the South Bay area as well. Old pilings have been left intact to provide sheltered fish habitat along the southern side of the pier, while the rest of the pier faces open water.
