Description: Black Duck Lake is former coal slurry pond located just south of Super Lake in the Captain Unit of Pyramid State Park. The lake is roughly 10 acres in size and is relatively shallow.

History and Status of the Sport Fishery: This lake has never been sampled due to shallow water and difficulty of access with an electrofishing boat. The lake's potential as a sport fishery is likely limited due lack of sufficient depth.

Additional Lake Information: 2 pole and line fishing only and bowfishing is allowed. All live bait in excess of 8" must be rigged with a quick set rig. Please note that fishing is prohibited from November 1 through February 28.
