Went to go fishing but at the gate, I was told to park and fish would be 10.00. "No problem". He then looked at our CANOE and said, "it's going to be another 10.00 for your boat using the boat launch". Ummmmm, we have a canoe. Don't need to use a boat launch. No thanks.

Took the family out yesterday. Sad to say, winter kill is in progress. Water in the shallows is stinky. The only place we found any perch was right under the ice. Turned out being a beautiful day, and a day on the lake beats a day in the city any day.

I know there's no keepers on this lake, however it's still very fun for my small kids. Just curious if the gates are open for vehicle access?

ice is good easy 10"+ , but gates are closed , there is a few ways to get on to the lake still ,just use google sateillite, best time to go is now before the gates open and all the perch that are of any size are gone. last year over 30 trucks each time. leave them closed

BrentH , still just little guys eh? getting worse every year

by BrentH on Nov. 25, 2017

Gates are locked up tight. No truck access on the ice this year. Walked in and tried different depths, and just tiny 3" perch.

by NorthernYaker on May. 29, 2017

Are they still charging people $$$ to enter the gates??

Went out fri-sat. All small fish. 900 people on the ice and prob close to the same in holes drilled. Fishing pressure is very high here and I doubt any fish left of decent size. Slower than usuall too.

Found the boat launch, nice little launch and campsites. Lake is really shallow and extremely weedy. The only thing caught from anyone out there off a boat last Sunday was weeds. 2 people on the dock were pulling up wee tiny perch all day long. ( honestly don't know why they didn't put them back! There aren't any size restrictions for this lake, but they were barely pan fries!)

by Angel on Jun. 1, 2016

Where is the boat launch and how is the water level and weeds? We've never been out here.

Aight thanks man

by NorthernYaker on May. 11, 2016

$10 dollars just to get past the gate last year. The only shore.fishing would be from the boat dock and judging from the number of boats that rip around that little lake I think very little.fishing would happen from the dock with boats loading and unloading all day.

I understand the lake opens up may 15 but can you shore fish here with spoons or small jigs? If so where?

Great weekend at the moon. Got into some real nice perch 8-10 inchers with alot of little ones. All u gotta do it bigger hook and bait to keep the littlw ones away and you can get some nice dinner makers. Took my limit. What a great meal

Lol remembers fishing 25 years ago .there was no restrictions on size . Seems no matter how you size it up is human error ,climate change, poor management. Our fish stocking program is a joke . Govt heads just don't care they rather fatten there own pockets an keep the outdoorsman confined to the concrete jungle .I'm just saying have a great season I'm going back north far north.

How do you define way too many people? The lake is overrun by three inch perch. Unless F&W introduces a few pike, its probably best that people do their part in culling. I like action as much as the next guy, but I prefer the lake to be healthy and for some of the perch to have a chance at growing a bit.

too bad everyone found out about this place this year, last few years i been going here there has been a decent amount of people but now there is way to many people here , 1 can really ruin it all

Agrees with Fishlips there's a practice in place catch release.Save some species for our children's children.Soceity is all Gung ho on keeping everything they catch. As a member of the conservation branch were on the lakes but there's only so many of us we can't be at every lake. But thank to technology we have caught lots of people with to many fish illegal fishing. It's you who helps just remember REPORT A POACHER.Its your lake as it is everyone's. Thank you Happy fishing

So you think the best thing to do would be to introduce a predatory species to keep the perch population at bay?

Fished on the 26th, and saw hundreds of 3 inch perch through the hole. I don't think a few busy weekends could fish the place out. The more serious risk as stated by Riverbear is stunting. It may seem counter-intuitive, but what this pond really needs is to have some pike introduced with a restriction on keeping pike under 50 cm.
