The lake is said to contain rainbow trout, estuary perch, golden perch and even Murray cod. It is regularly stocked with catchable sized fish. You will, of course, need a Victoria recreational fishing licence.
Some of the upper level paths have steps to negotiate a few very steep sections.
Even though the paths are wide and concreted they are not suitable for wheelchairs because of their steepness. By parking, in Stringybark Drive, which passes along the western side of the reserve a street-level viewing platform is provided giving superb views of the lake.
