Hey Merissa, can you add a Hot Spot marker for us all ?

by merissa on Jul. 2, 2020

Hey Soulfly, the hidden islands are primarily here ((50.6604493, -115.1339443). You can see them in google maps, although they were still above water in early June.

Was Kayaking there Nov 10. Lake was totally ice free except in a few sheltered areas there was some ice. Hoping to get out there to paddle one more time next weekend if it's still liquid

Anyone know when we can expect ice at either of the k lakes or spray? Getting way too pumped for hard water lol. Think it will be good by end of November?

Parked at Peninsula picnic area off the Smith Dorien trail and walked on, good ice but lots of flood water. Tough hiking and got very wet. Fishing was slow, but can't beat the scenery.

Was out on my canoe with a Minn Kota, got 2 bullies on dry flies. Calm morning, risers along the west shore south of the narrow. Excellent boat launch at Canyon day use area.

Has anyone been out fishing lately? If so, how is the fishing?

by onting on Apr. 21, 2016

Water is low and fishing is slow. Half of the lake still is still frozen. Maybe in a week or two it will be iced out and the water should be up.

Depth is about 40 feet here. I can't find any depth charts for this lake so I thought I would share.
