Lake is very slow. Only caught a couple all weekend and very small fish. Not worth the time.

Can you drive on at the campground?

by Newfisher on Feb. 19, 2017

About 36 inches of ice, very little snow coverage With the warm weather, be mindful of changing conditions, there were quite a few trucks out that didn't seem to have any issues.

I have fished Island off and on for the past 25 years. I haven't even seen a whitefish, through the ice nor accidentally caught. If they are there, they certainly weren't in the areas I was fishing.

Great morning of kayak fishing!! 20+ jack in 3.5 hrs. Anchored in 8 ft of water amongst the Lilly pads. No trophies but fun anyways. Really good lake for small water craft to be able to hide from the wind.

by Fishaholic on Jun. 13, 2012

Roughly 5-10 years ago we caught many 63cm + pike, but it seems to have declined since then! I think I might try rock island lake, ive been told by fish and wildlife people have been catching 3-5 ft pike ou of there.

Is there any crown land on this lake?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Brandi on Jun. 10, 2012

No not yet. We have been catching small. Although we did see one above legal size when we were trolling, he didn't like my rig I guess. If your looking for good size pike, the wabasca would be your best bet. I seen a 17 lb pulled out during fishing derby

Star Star Star Star Star

by Fishaholic on Jun. 7, 2012

Brandi, have you ever heard of anyone catching a pike any bigger than legal size?

I heard this is a good lake for jumbo perch. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Bring Chains. All the flood water froze up but the snow is deep and crusty. You pop through the crusty drifts off and on and if you don't have your speed up you're stuck.
