hi wondering if you have any info. is there access to the lake (we have a cartopper)besides the resort boat launch. the husband seems to think it is pretty brutal to get the boat in the water.

Yes there is a small launch on the first lake,just follow the road and turn off before you reach the lodge. There is a small channel leading to the main lake, not very deep but you can row through it. A car top is perfect for these lakes, with an electric motor and your laughing!

I have read in an outdoor magazine that despite the easy access and closeness to the road, the lakes contain some BIG fish that are willing to bite. There are rumors of 10 pound rainbows in there. Hmmmmmm

I thought I would revive this post instead of starting a new one. I think I have finally talked my husband into fishin this lake instead of going right on by to Tunkwa.I asked him ... "Did you hear that ???" he said "no" and I told him "it was the sound of me putting my foot down". Any info as far as what we should use ? I am partial to worms. Barring a torrential downpour I am fishing this lake on Saturday even if I have to load the boat myself lol.

hearing the sizes i may have to try some time to. same right by so many times...just scratch my head and keep going...we do murphy and gwen on the coq.
if you want a sure thing use ford fenders or similar trolling lures. wedding band on the end with the worm. the blue wedding band seems to do better for us at the other mentioned lakes so being close id assume it works there also.

last trip a couple weeks ago to gwen i had to let alot more line out than usual so not sure if that might go for there to. just something to keep in mind.

bring your camera...curious what it looks like

does anyone know when this lake typically freezes over for ice fishing?

Bunch of questions for the poster of this thread even that its years old --Please reply-- I went up there 3 years ago and caught white meat -Blackwater strain trout and --Tzenzaicut rainbow trouts,, --how is this lakes stocked(Fisheries?) and by who cant find on line how its stocked--also at the same time see massive schools of minnows -red shiners I think?What time does the ice off cause i go there in july but want to go as soon as it has open water-and Murpy Lakes too thx

check on May 1st.....might be off by then.

Hi thanks was hoping cream corn could help on this matter --really would like to know the stoking and everything I aske if possible please relpy cream Corn greatly appriciatted thx
