Anybody been out here lately, and know where to go? It's been about 15 yrs for me. Deciding between this and Keho. Southeast side or spillway seem to be the popular spots. Any tips would be greatly appreciated

i know whitefish spawn shallow, but where would be the best place to find them?

Star Star Star Star Star

by FishinBenny on Sep. 4, 2016

whitefish should be coming back up to the shallower water as the weather cools and they stock up for spawn.

by Tanyab1982 on Aug. 4, 2016

Wondering if anyone knows where the white fish are? Know they are there. Thanks

We went to travers dam campground camping this weekend and threw the boat in the water. While we were loading our boat up we watched two people in a black jeep pull up to where we were camping and steal our generator before we had a chance to stop them. We tried to catch them but they were gone. It was a yellow champion 4000 watt generator. No power start or wheels. If anyone in the area sees that or hears anything please contact us asap. 403 919 8830 text or call Josh or Andrea

Sorry I ran out of room. Few catching walleye off dock but all undersized.

Star Star Star Star Star

by iFish Guest on Jul. 26, 2013

Lots of small-med pike (2 - 4lbs) in the weeds on the mid-north portion of the lake in about 10 - 15' of water. East of where you can access the north shore and people can be seen fishing from shore. Just anchor up and start casting No.1 or 0 Size or similar large spoons....5 of Diamonds, Red Devil, Nickel and Brass Plated...they all work. Fun for kids, as you will be able to see trailers and them often hitting the lure.

Star Star Star Star Star

by iFish Guest on Jul. 11, 2013

Fine after flood. Water was clear. I had no luck but a few folks on the dock were catching walleye. One pike of legal size. Scenic too.

Yea we went on sunday too but out of all four of us I got 1 walleye 1 pike. May be we had a hard time finding them because we fished at the sr time. We tried the river first (west side) And then just east of little bow. We probably just had a hard time finding them

Star Star Star Star Star

by McBeast on May. 10, 2011

Yeah we were out from 9am till 6pm, so all day! We had moments throughout the day when would get whacks! Even had a double header!! The tough part is just trying to find them, because they're hungry!!
