Fishing reports indicate that Morcom is an excellent fishing destination. The most common species on Morcom are black bullhead, northern pike, bluegill, black crappie, yellow perch, and more. The shallow depths of Morcom make it a non-ideal location for boating. A public ramp is available off of Morcom Lake Forest Management Road. This ramp is a great point for launching a kayak or canoe, as you can explore the lake or Paleface Creek.
