DEC has stocked Lake Alice and many of the ponds within the wildlife management area with largemouth bass. The warm, weedy waters permit bass to grown quite large. Brown bullhead and sunfish are also abundant in these waters. Fishing is permitted throughout the wildlife management area from shore or car top boats. A hand launch is located next to the main parking area off Ridge Road. Ice fishing is popular on Lake Alice.
