The lake offers excellent fishing for Walleye, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Lake Trout, Salmon and Paddlefish. Scientists recognize this area as one of the most fossiliferous localities in the world. There are more than 400 specimens including the massive skull of a triceratops on display at the museum inside the Fort Peck power plant. This area is along the Lewis and Clark route.
