Moonshine lake is 17 acres and full of both rock and timber. There is a large channel that runs down the western 1/3 of the lake. You will notice a large berm that also runs down the western side of the lake. If your curious the western side of the berm is used to fill shallow water for duck hunting and is likely not accessible by boat in most years. Of course, much of the lakes features and structure is based on annual rainfall/runoff. The eastern side of the lake is less than 3 feet in most areas when the lake is full.

The deepest water is about 18-22 feet and can be found along the dam and the center of the lake.
