Fished this lake lots over the years. Always lots of trout to catch. Fun for the kids. Fish straight out in front of the bend on the right. Wardens patrol it lots. Always have good chats with Officer Purpleluk.

Fishing from shore nearly impossible because of weed growth. Even at the north side of bay where the drop off is becoming too weedy the cast. Time to go buy a canoe

I am calling environment to check into this. There draining the lake.

by Fort Mac bear hunter on Jun. 21, 2015

Its way lower than the colvert pipe !! Maybe surmont is piped into a few of the springs that fill the lake !! Something is not right !!!

by Fort Mac bear hunter on Jun. 20, 2015

Was out today caught limit but cant belive how low water is !! Think they nee to plug that colvert again !! Didnt see near as many fish on the finder as last couple years !!

The lake was artificially high for the past 5 years. A overflow culvert was plugged

Lake is still down. Hard to launch a boat but it is do able. 20 plus fish in 4 hours

Level is improving but still muddy waters

Star Star Star Star Star

by Shutdownbypass on Apr. 18, 2015

Lake level has fallen several feet like nothing I have seen before. Right now it would be nearly impossible to launch a boat or fish because of shallow water and mud. If water level does not improve this spring, it might be the end of this rainbow fishery%uD83D%uDC4E%uD83C%uDFFD

Caught one 10" rainbow with a pickerel rig and earthworms while trolling. Early morning is probably a better time.

Went out for a few hours on June 26 and caught 7 small rainbows each about 10". Kind of a waste of time as it must have been recently stocked. Better to wait until later in the summer when they will have a chance to fatten up

Has anybody fished the lake when there is no ice??? How is it in June?

From my experience, Engstrom is really hot until about March then it get fished out. In December I would land 30-50 'bows each day and then it declines after the new year until it gets so slow I stop going by end of February.

Haven't had good fishing lately. Went out last week. Got the quad stuck in overflow. Lots of ice though. Wouldn't recommend vehicles on the ice with the amount of snow and overflow

Went out on Monday Feb 11. No fish caught. Spent half an hour getting truck unglued from the slush on the lake. There is heavy rutting and large areas of thick slush and water on the ice surface. Travel on ice not recommended unless you have a sled or Soviet T4 tank

Caught 8 rainbows plus 1 sucker in 2 hours then got sick so I had to run home early. Will be back soon to continue. Small neon yellow jigs or wire worms with the orange marshmallows seem to bring them in. It is very entertaining watching six rainbows all swiping at the hook down the hole

Finally, I found a use for those orange fake marshmallows I bought at Walmart three years ago. Caught 52 rainbows in four hours during holidays

Just wondering if anyone was on the lake this year yet? And how much ice?

Caught 8 in just a couple hours. Weather awful but lake calm and no crowds. I'm glad the government finally fixed up the boat launch with new garbage cans and gravelled the area to get rid of those truck-eating mud holes

by SuperJamie99 on Sep. 16, 2012

Caught 5 in this area in 1hour trolling with a fly. Largest was 14 inches, great fun for my son and I.

I was there for 3 days, only beetwen 10 to 14 inch. I dont think to many big one over 16 inch. I do fly fishing. Using semi sink line with damsel nymph color green. Wet fly on trolling quickly was good. Nice lake, with lots of stocks rainbow.
