Comments: Moore Lake is divided by Highway 65 into two basins called West Moore and East Moore Lake. Shorefishing is easier on East Moore where there is a long open shoreline and two fishing piers.  Mooore Lake is known for abundant Northern Pike and nice sized Bluegills.  A fish survey conducted in 2009 found Bluegill average length was over 6.5 inches.
