Lake Irene is a 630-acre, mesotrophic (moderately fertile) bass-panfish lake located near the town of Miltona in northeast Douglas County. Two public accesses are located on this lake. One is on the northwest shore off of NW Irene Road and the other is located on the southeast shore off of County Road 64. Water quality and clarity are considered good. Consequently, an abundant and diverse aquatic plant community is present within this basin. Lake Irene is primarily a bass-panfish fishery, but it also supports a high-quality walleye population. Walleye abundance in 2005 was 9.1 fish per gill net, which is well above expected abundance levels for this type of lake. Walleye numbers have increased substantially in recent years due to reestablishment of a walleye fingerling stocking program and additional stockings completed by the Lake Irene Association. Size structure of this population is relatively small but most fish sampled were individuals from the 2002 and 2003 year classes. Expect size structure to improve in future years as these year classes move through the fishery. Bluegill abundance has also increased in recent years and anglers can expect good catches of medium-sized fish. A few large bluegill are also present. Largemouth bass and northern pike are both relatively abundant and these two populations exhibit a moderate size structure. Other game fish species include black crappie and yellow perch. Black crappie are not sampled effectively with trap nets during late summer so survey data is likely not representative of actual population characteristics. Previous angler reports suggest that crappie fishing can be quite good on this basin. Yellow perch abundance is extremely low and most fish sampled were relatively small. Other fish species sampled during the 2005 survey include tullibee, white sucker, bullheads, and pumpkinseed sunfish.
