Many of the farm and mine ponds provide fishing opportunities for bass, crappie, and sunfish. The Marais des Cygnes River and floodplain ponds provide additional fishing opportunities for flathead and channel catfish, crappie, and walleye. Access is mostly limited to walking. Non-motorized boats and boats with electric motors are allowed but getting boats in and out is generally an arduous venture.
