Bingham Lake draws visitors who want to test their skills against some of the various warm water game species that inhabit the lake, such as large-mouth bass, black crappie, walleye, bluegill yellow perch, channel catfish and wipers (hybrid white/stripe bass). An annual stocking program began in 2005 to ensure adequate numbers of fish are available to catch. In addition, a habitat enhancement project, periodic assessments and requests for anglers to “catch and release” has helped maintain a quality fishery.

A Colorado fishing license is not required since the lake is managed under a private license.  Changes in regulations by The Pinery Water and Wastewater District prohibit any boating or wading due to concerns of introducing Zebra or Quagga Mussels into the lake. Both are invasive species that would have a profound impact on the ecosystem and mechanical pumping operations at the lake.
