Disgusting black spot parasite. One bow I kept so full of black spots I would not eat it. I heard it's harmless if properly cooked but ruined the apatite.

Lower Chain Lakes now has tiger trout! I was using raw shrimp pieces on a small yellow jig hook. Set up was very close to the bottom at a depth of 10 feet. Caught 16 rainbows and 2 tigers. The tigers were each 11 inches long. Released per the ACA and ERSD request.

Fish are diseased and full of bumps. Looks like warts, sounds like parasites are getting to them. Good fishing but won't eat them.

Has anyone been out here lately? With all the rain I would really like to know how the roads are; I would like to bring my trailer, but want to make sure I can make it.

Fishing was good today, got 1 three pound rainbow. Put back a bunch of smaller trout. Wire worms (JackfishLure) brand, loaded with maggots or trout worm was the ticket today.

Caught 7 smallish rainbows after 3.5 hours, and kept a couple. After cleaning the fish I noticed black spots in the flesh. Found out it is a parasite-salvelinus fontinalis. They grow into worms when eaten by a loon, and live inside the loons mouth. I could handle probably a few that could be cut out, but these parasites are fairly wide spread. They are deep in the flesh, on the scales, imbedded in the fins...Yucky:( Kind of takes the fun out of a good day of fishing. Too bad, it's a real nice lake and fishing is typically good. Will have to be catch and release for my future trips until this problem goes away!

was out a couple a weeks ago got at least 50 in two hours. was using black and yellow panther marten. great day of fishing for rainbow. And if you go about 4km up the road and down the bush road upper is good for pike and perch.

July 20/2012: Only one on the lake this day. Nice little lake for float tube and spent a few hours nymph fishing. Fish were rising nicely early in the morning, calm and wind did pick up. Trout were biting on Muddler Minnows and bead head nymphs. Worm flies were working well also. Fishing from shore, it looks like folks were using marshmallows, cheese and other types of baits by observing some "shoreline refuse". Nice park with campground area; great beach for kids on a hot day.

Fished for 6 hours today, between the two of us caught six. Four over 12" and two smaller ones. Fish were moving pretty slow, maybe due to the extremely high winds. No snow on the ice, 16" thick. Can't wait for the next trip out there!
