Was there on the weekend. Lots of decent sized fish, and even more under sized fish. Fairly weedy in the far west corners. Big Browns and Rainbows. Pretty busy lake.

Spent whole day here today. Parked on shore first, walked out and drilled holes up to center of lake. Ice thickness is average 17 inches and solid. Drove on after I was safely convinced. Beautiful day, but didn't see anything or get anything. We fished 3 different depth zones about 3 hours each, using maggots, dew worms, and power baits. My boys used the shack and I fished outside perimeter. Still was better than being on the couch!

Was out today slow in the am. Caught two 12- 13 rainbow between 1-2 pm. Ice is soft and flooding. Please resist the urge to drive on the ice. If you don't have a good 4x4 park at the top and walk down.

Finally made it out here. Do not recommend for late season ice fishing with the aireatir the ice is deceiving. Thin ice signs everywhere. We never drilled a hole.

We were catching rainbows all evening from 4-9pm. We both limited out. Biggest fish was 3.5lbs. Trolling works best on this lake.

Mitchell lake is a beautiful radiated lake that is stocked every year with rainbows. It's a pontoon friendly lake with easy put in and take out. Large Browns in Mitchell but you have to be stealthy. Early morning is best before the shore fisher people get there. Each pattern works well.

Went for a few days. Caught a ton of tiny rainbows and a few fair sized rainbows. Seen a couple ppl pull out browns but they are much harder to catch. East shoreline seems to be the best place.

Healthy fishery well cared for so no winterkill. Fair sized rainbows and browns. The browns spook easy so use caution. N.E corner by beaver lodge has a lot of structure and holds fish well.
