I use smelt. Power bait works pretty good as well. Once I catch my limit, I try other things like tube jigs, etc. but they don't work as well.

Meant to say "Fished near the boat launch, WHICH is usually pretty good but nothing."

Fished near the boat launch, with is usually pretty good but nothing. Took a drive to the very end of the lake and spotted a ton of fish and caught our limit in no time.

Hi Bigheaddoug, there are no facilities at Goat or boat launch. I don't believe motorized boats are allowed but you can definitely use a Kayak,etc.

Has anyone got any info on Goat Lake (Pond)? Any facilities there, boat launch etc.

Hi Corkdown, wind can pick up quite quickly at Spray. I always check the wind forecast before I head out and make sure it's under 10 KM/h. The lower lake at Spray (Goat Lake), is more secluded and better for Kayaks.

by Corkdown on Jun. 18, 2019

So my kid and I were thinking about trying for lake trout for the first time wondering if good or bad to use kayaks? Thanks

Water levels are still low. Just barely enough to launch the boat but still a good day of fishing. Caught 9 in about 2 1/2 hours between the 3 of us.

Was just barely enough water to trailer launch a 16ft on roller trailer. Water was up to back bumper on truck while launching.

There's lake trout in Goat Pond. I think there's Grayling as well but I've never caught one.

So true, i have a picture from last year fishing from shore the 1st week of june. It looks like it will be the same this year. BTW, what fish is in goat pond? I used to see people fishing there but couldnt find any information on it online.

At least 10% of ice left. Last year at this time I had the boat out as there was open water from the launch to the end of the campground. By middle of next week, I would think at least half of the lake will be thawed out. We just ended up fishing from shore on the lower lake, which i think is called goat pond.

Thank you so much Scordz for the update, would you say 10%u201D of ice left?

Star Star Star Star Star

Still frozen Zombarak. I would say another week and a half to two weeks. I'll probably head back up on June 1.

Roughly 3 feet of ice where I was at around sparrow hawk. Had a great day. 11 lake trout between 2 of us in 4 hours.

Lots of good solid ice still. Forgot the measuring tape but I would guess 38-40 inches of ice still just off of driftwood. There is open water On the north between the driftwood point and the dam Hardly any snow on the ice. No slush and no water on top of the ice. It was a slow day but a nice day to get out. Water level has been dropping which may change how long the ice lasts. It was down 5 feet from 2 weeks ago.

Lots of good solid ice still. The water is down which is normal for this time of year. As for the surface there was 4-6 inches of soft snow on the ice. No water on the ice which was shocking. Both days were pretty slow but weFACEBOOK

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

by copperjacket on Jan. 15, 2019

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.

Lots of bits just past sparrowhawk landed 12 used a hole minnow on a jig hook
