Ranging from an average depth of 11 feet to about 36 feet deep near the dam, the shallow waters of Lake Arthur are home to a variety of warm-water fish. Frogs, newts, turtles and water snakes that prowl the edges of the lake. The tall great blue heron (seen in the picture above), the short green heron, and the belted kingfisher prey on minnows and fish fry.
