What lures are good to use in this lake? I've never tried ice fishing here since the bait ban many moons ago. I wouldn't mind to give it a good try.

Great thanks for the reply, sorry about your luck

by Spfmtyily on Jul. 20, 2016

Launched a boat today and no problem. Water level wasn't an issue at all. Fishing on the other hand wasn't so good. Have an 18.5 foot aluminum with a 150hp on the back and it was fine

by curt26 on Jul. 13, 2016

Has anyone launched a boat yet, if so how's the water level?

Went out Wednesday 30" of ice. At the shoreline we had to cross about 30' of ankle deep slush. We caught one 20" rainbow and missed 3. The guy next to us caught 2 about the same size.

Had a couple bites but only managed to get one little guy to shore. Caught about half way between the boat launch and the waterfall on a small rapala countdown. With it being the long weekend, the place was packed.

Lots of young ones biting on almost anything close to shore. Son caught his first fish using a bob and some flies. All too small to keep but it was a fun catch and release day.
