FDR Park waters
have good fishing health with similar species of fish that populate warm water
lakes and ponds with Panfish or sometimes called Sunfish (Bluegills, Perch and Crappies), Largemouth Bass and Carp. No stockings and formal tests for
the purpose of determining the fish population (Meadow and Edgemont Lakes and side
lagoons in FDR) have been conducted for years, so there is no official status
of the species levels. The invasive fish Snakeheads continue to be caught
in the waters and is a focus of some efforts to reduce or eliminate. Here
is a link to the Snakehead history in PA: http://www.fishandboat.com/Fish/PennsylvaniaFishes/Pages/Snakehead.aspx
