Fished from 11:30_3:00 today. Didnt see any action (two others flyfishing, two using bait.) Ufortunately had to leave just as the day warmed up. Skiff of ice on the south (shady side) of the lake. Aerator in operation.

Out there today, nothing. Not a swirl, a rise (although there were small bugs hatching), or any hits. Dead calm

Looks like they are doing some upgrading at the lake. Fixed the road this summer, recently put up a sign and now they are aerating the lake. Only the east end and very far west end are accessible as the two aerators take up pretty much the middle section of the lake. Lots of open water. Be careful.

Nothing showed up on the ice flasher. Drilled servers holes around 20ft of water and didn't see a single fish. Long drive on bad roads for no catching. Must have winter killed ???

What a cute little lake. Had 30 nibbles and bites, caught 3, just small guys. Other people I was with caught one each. My first time here, what a beautiful little place. That road coming down in though was terrible. My poor car.

Seen a 15" trout caught from shore just west of boat launch

I'm sure any brother fisherman who frequents this lake will share my condolences to Bob Leblaw who's house overlooking the lake burnt to the ground. The house and all of its contents were completely destroyed by the fire. Fortunately everyone got out safely.

Fished there for 4 hours today. Not a sniff. The weather was great and I was the only one on the ice. Ice was 14 to 16 inches thick with 4-6 inches of snow on top.

Lots of action with light and dark brown halfback.

Did a few hours fishing here today. Very active but quite small nothin over 12cm. Fishing from 6ft to bottom and still nothin over 12cm. But weather was great and water was very calm. I will return but will be a second choice forsure.

Fun hooking into the litte rainbows. We gave up counting, they were 8" at best on choronomids at 6ft. All released so they get bigger and we can catch them again at twice the size.

by Jayjayjay on Jun. 25, 2014

Hey. What do people use for bait here?

by JamesF on Jun. 23, 2014

June 23 caught 15+ small rainbows 6-8" on damselfly nymph. All released to get bigger. Apparently stocked in early June. Didn't see anyone else catch anything of any size.

I'd rather be fishing
