Between 4 of us all weekend we landed 3 and had 3 to the hole. Very slow. Tried anywhere from 6 to 14 feet of water. And yes, extremely murky

How's fishing here

Star Star Star Star Star

by google on May. 21, 2015

Fished by the bridge on Saturday and pulled out around 50 fish by my estimate, probably quite a bit less because I didn't count. On Monday, only caught one. Must have been the rain that made the fishing so good. The fish were hitting on anything I threw in the water, even an 8 inch long squid that I bought in Hawaii, but only on Saturday.

by Tmauthe on May. 16, 2015

Went fishing by the bridge and pulled out close to 30 small walleye and jack about 2-3 lbs.. Put them back of course.. Also catching some good size 8-10 lbs.. They are hitting on anything and everything..

I've never seen a Perch at this lake... Have been looking for them for years. Has anyone driven on the lake yet from the boat launch yet? Wondering if the ice is thick enough to drive on with a 3/4 ton?

by Luckwell on Jan. 9, 2015

The springs are located on the North West side of the lake where the battle river comes in. If your fishing Tillicum area your fine.

Went out here for Aug 1st and 2nd ..was great fishing we cought over 200 from about noon to dusk. They were under 63 cm so we put them back in for another year. What was amazing about this lake was the people we ment there were so friendly and outgoing, There is a small campsite just up the road that has 7 sites , I got to meet a lady and her husband who had children and that was great because I had my with me to. they all played togather as we traded stories about fishing . Made me feel right at home. .....I was told there are some nice size Pike in this lake and behold on the water I was about to find out...I used the " Storm Wildeye Live pike, red devel .5 of diamonds and many other spoons they all worked great ...I had my rod broke by a nice Pike and the best was the one that bent my rod and snaped the line after five min trying to get it in,,,, I never got to see the fish that was on but im sure guessing it was a nice one. So this lake will see me again. These fish fight good and make the trip even more fun._Having the boat on the lake I had a wonderful time fishing and as the night came to a close the sunset over the lake made a perfect end for another great fishing trip ...will post a few picks here.

This is my go to Lake for pike fishing. almost always seems to be at least a little action off the docks or the point next to the docks. They are usually not very big, but I always have fun.

We went out for 3 hours. We had a hit as soon as we the hooks hit the water. After that it slowed down and we didn't catch any more until the later part of our trip.

Went out for 3 hours with my dad and 5 year old. Good fun action! Caught 9 fish. All round that 2lb range. Did see one bigger closer to 5lb. Most were biting nice and aggressive. Jig tipped with minnow was most enticing bait we put down. Ice was about 14" of good clear ice. No flood water.
