That's a common question out here, so i'll put in my 2 cents. There really is no specific depth in my opinion. I've caught nice fish in 8 fow, and I've caught nice fish in 150 fow. in the deep water, Im catching them 40 feet down, and all the way up to the ice. I've had them swim up to my hole while bringing up my spoon. Generally ill start off 20 feet below the ice. I definetly wouldn't pass up water between 15 and 40 fow. I've got some dandies in those depths. If you want some more tips feel free to message me.

Can someone give me an idea of what depth to look for trout at I have personally never caught one through the ice and have heard good things about this lake and the trout population I just have no clue on where to even start looking for them.

Ice is great - was out yesterday for only 2 hours from 4 til sundown. Beautiful day! Started catching fish the minute after I dropped a jig down the hole. Great day out there to have a beer and relax and watch the sunset all while catching some trout! All were released...nothing really big, but still fun.

Headed out to Wazee this weekend and have never fished there through the ice. Any insight on where the fish are biting or what depth would helpful. Not looking for big ones necessarily, just looking to be able to catch a few. Thanks.

bite was a little slow yesterday. caught some fish, but they were all short browns. Talked to a couple guys and they've been having the same problem. Plenty of fish, just shorts where we were. time to move on somewhere else. Good luck guys.

The bite was so-so but still caught a number of rainbows. They are oddly close to the ice this yr. With-in 15ft. Rosie minnows, heads and whole were getting it done. White seemed to be the color of choice for a spoon.

No need for atv, I saw children ice skating across our this weekend. Didn't take them long. Plus there are several spots to get on the water,so the wall is not bad at all.

Yeah, for the most part, you barely have to walk far at all. Ice will be nice and thick now. It was 5" last weekend before this deep freeze. You can walk across the whole lake in about 5 mins. Not too big.

I am guessing at 146 acres, the walk isn't too terribly bad I guess. If I can catch 1 trout, it would remind me if my first ice outings with my brother in law who was murdered a few years ago. I am thankful he took the time to take me ice fishing when I was younger.

Not sure about the atv's/snowmobiles but I know the ice usually doesn't get real thick because of the water depth. It is a cool experience, make sure you bring a portable shack. Once you pull the shack over the holes you can literally see your bait 50'-60'down. Like looking into another world down there. Have fun and good luck!

Are atvs and or snowmobiles aloud to be driven on the ice?That's a great question CC.I would give the Jackson County Parks Dept. a call with that one. I know power augers are ok. Good luck out there, if you have the time scroll back to the very first post and read them all there's only 70 or so and they're pretty short and pithy and you might pick up some pointers on this lake. Like you this one is on my bucket list to. Big Smile

I don't think they allow anything with gas on the ice as this is a pristine water. I would call the dive shop in BRF to see what is allowed or the state forest office as I know you need a park permit to get in. This water is crystal clear and it goes from 0-330 ft pretty quickly as it is an old iron ore mine. Good luck and tight lines.
