Rosch, Ive fished it only 3 times now once in summer and twice in winter. Caught some nice smallies in summer but not much else. Winter unfortunetly has been slow for me there. Only small perch. I do like the lake and it looks promising. Good luck.

 I haven't fished it for a couple of winters now but the last time I was there I managed to pick up several perch,  a couple northern pike,  and a couple walleyes.  I like it there, it's not very big and usually not a lot of people on it.

Went to butternut on from 20th to the 27th of August ,fished hard using slip bobbers and a crawler,then switched to bottom fishing with crawler,then trolling Chuck's worms ,no luck on any of them .only luck we had was baby perch and crayfish.You definitely need a depth finder in this lake to find the rock bars ,also a sturdy boat as it is a very windy lake ,locals say it's been a tough year for them too ,we had a nice vacation but disappointed in the fishing ,lot of hours in the boat with nothing to show for it??

How's the smallmouth bite been? Looking to hit Butternut again before summer is over.

Went on Saturday (7/20/13), slow fishing for the time I was out (10am-3pm). Used Drop-shot with crawler and caught around 6 smallies, all 7-10 inches. Saw hundreds of yearling smallies and some rock bass and gills. The man working at the boat landing said that the lake had been slow for a week or two.

I hope the bite picks up soon! Feel free to let me know if it does!
