Thanks heffe, I'll go on the weekend, glad you put the weight of your fish, it makes sense, i keep hearing about these 6-8lbs, i think their scales are broken. Thanks again

I've had a great winter on this lake! Was there yesterday, still over 2 feet of ice away from the aeration pool. Slower fishing yesterday but managed to get one rainbow at 3.8 pounds.

Fishing was okay. Too many people around and hard launch our boats. Algae starting already. Maybe two weeks left before it's done for the year

Well that one isn't open until June 16 if i read right, and is located in ES2, this one is located in ES4 and is open all year and located by ridgevalley, if you click on view map/directions it shows you on the map as well the app says this one is in ES4 when you clicked on it, and the top of your screen it tells you when the lake is open and this one says April 1-March 31....simple mistake, cheers

Star Star Star Star Star

by Lakechaser on May. 10, 2015

Hey Bucksman, you were the only one fishing because Swan Lake is closed for fishing until May 15th. We were going to go there today too, took a second look at the regulations only to discover this also.
