Spent the day on the ice, no fish to report. Talked with a family who was camping there and they said no one has caught any since they got there on Thursday.

Catch big browns on flat fish trolling closer to shore with a little less weight.have to use heavy fluorocarbon line behind a swivel due to pike encounters. Don't use a steel leader

camped at the lake over 10 years ago, a guy nick named poindexter by the campers, caught massive brown trout between 6 to 9 pounds and I saw two of them on the dock on his 1st day, I looked at him, and asked what did you use and where, the answer was ..............................................silence ... the guy was weird he slept in the trees, no tent, and in a canoe .... anyways going back to the lake ,,, is it still 1 - 3 ounce inline weights with f-7 flat fish ...real slow? bruno27, you could text me at 403 358 9999 with the info (if you want)

Wow that's Great! Good for you! I've never landed any browns in Swan. I always stick to the lakers. Can't wait to get out this weekend. Thanks for the update ! Cheers bud

lots of rain but fishing was really good caught a 11.2 lb 10.4 lb 9.1lb and 7 other smaller lakers between 5am to 4pm . A wild life office will be spending the summer at the lake doing a survey on the lakers and brown trout to see if the population is still healthy and figure out if they should change the regulation for next year . What is the secret to catch those massive brown trout?

Nice place to camp and fish. Good boat launch but shallow. Great for small boats, canoes, kayaks, pontoons, etc. My friend caught a monster pike. Too big for us to handle from the pontoons. Trophy Lake.
