Spent 5 days, fishing very slow. Did manage to catch a few small ones and one about 2 lbs. This lake is much better in June and July

4 of us fished for 5 hrs yesterday and landed 5 missed a few more. Ice is 14-18" all over the lake. A bad day fishin is better than a good day a work.

Has anyone been out fishing at Fairfax in the last couple of weeks?

Trolled wet flies on Labour Day weekend. Slower fishing than in early summer but larger average size of about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds. Our biggest was 4 pounds on a leach pattern.

by Alco on Aug. 24, 2014

Trolled flies in both June and July this summer with good results. Size ranged from 1 to 3 lbs. Saw sime caught on a Willowleaf too. Beautiful little lake.

It doesn't winter kill. And as far as I'm concerned it is the best trout lake around this area for fishing piriod. Beautiful camp ground to. There not as plentiful as they were 40 years ago, but you can still catch the bigger fish there aswell.

I take a boat there regularly. Troll up and down or sit and cast both work well. Ramp is pretty basic (easy access but not paved). Shore is over grown and tough to cast from. I've seen some decent fishing from the dock. If you go tell us how you fared.

Is it big enough to take a boat in? How's the fishing from shore?

How hard is it to get into this lake? Can you drive a truck to it?

its a winter road in but a steep hill leaving so have 4*4 or you'll be paying an expensive tow bill, fishing is good lots of small ones though

I've never ice fished Fairfax, in fact I haven't fished it in years. My dad introduced us to this lake over 40 years ago, at that time both Rainbow and Brooke trout were both large and abundant.

Has anyone fished Fairfax this year? Heard it had winter kill in 2011...thinking of heading there next week or so. My wife caught a 5 pounder there in 2010.
