Park along the side of the road where everyone else parks. Bring a sled and walk out to the middle that's the only way to get out on the lake.

by iFish Guest on Mar. 8, 2019

Dodgeman, only way to get there is to hoof it. The campground is closed for winter and it’s blocked off.

Three of us were there on January 19, 2019. One person caught limit, other two caught '2' each. All Lakers, largest 15-16 inches, out in 90 - 100 feet of water, ice about 30 inches. Everyone using smelt for bait. Weather clear, lots of people fishing.

Heads up people do NOT back down the boat launch you will get stuck every time we have been there someone has been stuck . We had some bites with power bait but none landed .

Guys nothing works better than smelts at spray lakes, try a pickerel rig setup with smelts and you will be surprised. Fish at about 80ft-100ft of water

There seems to be about 6%u201D of snow all over the ice. Some places less. 15%u201D of ice. Used smelts, jigs, Power bait in 30' of water, no luck:(. Any tips?? Rig setup, bait, jig type/size?!

Ice was about 15 inches thick at Driftwood. Will have to try Sparrowhawk next time as I had zero bites here. Four groups of anglers out on the ice here by noon.

Just a heads up, you can't use minnows on Spray. Smelts are ok. I could care less but the CO's will give you a ticket if you get caught.

Ice at driftwood was 11 inches with some ankle deep snow. Slow day on the ice. Only landed 3 lakers. Saw a few dozen on the camera. Found the smaller the presentation the better. Remember there is no driving on the ice. Someone came out on an ATV but got intercepted by the CO while he was out checking everyone.

Don’t know why my comments get caught off. Meant to say despite the hot weather, the Lakers are still biting great

FYI: I've been going to Spray for over 20 years and the road conditions are the worst I've seen. Contacted Volker Stevin and they claim they grade them every Monday and Thursday but I don't think they've been touched.

50°52'37.1"N 115°23'46.0"W. That is where we caught the majority of our fish on Sunday and Monday.

Hi Alex, if it's not too busy, we fish along the campground side. If it is busy, we book it to the very end of the lake. I have a 90 HP motor, so it takes about 15-20 minutes. Not many people make their way to other end, so it seems loaded with fish. We use smelt.

Hey scordz, at what part of the lake did you catch your fish and what did you use for the bait? We spent the whole day last week and did not have even one bite.

Star Star Star Star Star

by scordz on Jul. 17, 2018

Went out Sunday and Monday. For mid July, I'm surprised how well the Lakers are biting. We caught our limit both days in no time in roughly 40 feet of water.

by scordz on Jun. 27, 2018

June is always the best month to fish at Spray, especially after the ice is off. Obviously being out on the boat is much better but I've seen a few folks have some luck on shore as well. Most fish are only a couple of pounds but I've been fortunate to catch a few larger ones this year.

Star Star Star Star Star

by FishinBenny on Jun. 26, 2018

You need a boat for this res, the Lakers are out in 40 ft or deeper all based on water temp

How big are they? Ice fished it, but only caught 16-18%u201D Lakers.

Still one of the best lakes for trout. We landed several good size lakers just after 4 PM.

Sorry, last message got caught off. Water levels are good compared to previous years. The 4 of us caught 12 lakers in about an hour. They were biting great.
