The primitive sites at Comlara are mostly near the water, and there is a separate dock near a few of them. We had no issues hauling all our camp gear out to the site on the boat, and leaving the boat tied up to the dock overnight in the past, and plan to do that again soon. Look at satellite views of the area on google maps and you should see the dock to the east of the little peninsula where the sites are.

There is a little store at the boat ramp that usually has someone there. If you can locate the number for that store, you might want to give them a call. Maybe they know.

Lund50, I am a muskie guide so I can't help you. However, I have heard a lot of good things about Jim (the guy who responded to you) or there is a local guy down here by the name of Paul Center (angling adventures) who is also a top notch multi-species guide (for everything but muskie). Both of these gentlemen would be excellent choices for you.

Good luck sir.

please give me an email and we'll see if we can get together. I guide out of a pontoon boat so it's very comfortable and roomy to fish out of

2nd time getting down here this week. only had time to hit the middle part of the day with a high sky. decent little breeze at times. was searching for muskie in the NW part of the lake. electronics went out so it was a bit of a challenge trying to stay on the outside edge. nothing doing here. threw some hair, suicks, ss shads, and even worked some dawgs over the deeper holes to no avail. moved up to work the shoreline and upon removing a snag saw a nice size lunge with its nose on shore looked to be metabolizing a recent snack. fish was not spooky at all as we were able to watch her for quite some time before she bolted. local crappie guys said its been pretty tough for them too for the last couple weeks. still great to get out and its a beautiful lake
