To the guy in the gray boat hauled by a blue pickup I put your engine lift (transom saver?) in front of the cut down willow tree that has small new growth sprouts coming out of it. Stuck one end in the muck. 


Took the old lady out kayaking and swimming on both lakes today. Brought the fishing rod but pleasure boaters and general activity had the fish hunkered down IMO, no bites. Did see some small bass and bluegills on middle though. Water was nice anyway. This heat can move along now!

Most people today where very courteous, when I arrived and the launch was full had a guy wave me down to say he was leaving. Thanks to those people. However people need to learn how to park. Had one doofus park on the end not in a spot so everyone had to backup multiple times to get out cuz you couldn't make the loop.

Got off work early. Decided to give Middle a try. Hadnt fished out there yet this year. Found a decent gang of fish in 25' of water. Initially only getting potato chips. But in the last 15 mins of daylight managed 8 keepers gills. Overall caught about 30 gills. Fished from 1:30-5:00. Didn't find fish till about 2:45 and they were acting pretty fickle. Very lite bite from the bigger gills. All fish are still swimming. Damn its cold.....

Fished Jan 10th from 10 to 4.

I typically fish middle a few times in the summer so I decided to give it a try ice fishing.

I got 3 flags and caught 2 small northerns in 18 FOW. I was mainly targeting panfish and the only place I found them was 24 to 28 FOW. I found nothing shallower and nothing deeper. The fish were tight to the bottom and had to jig them off the bottom, and then let the jig sit until the bite. Caught only 10 bluegill 1 keeper. All were caught on white / pink jig tipped with a waxie.

Pretty slow day.

Gave Middle a shot as I usually do most years. Went to gps spots i have had success in the past, no fish on the locator. Drilled 115 holes looking for fish. Found about a dozen fish I saw on camera, and caught 4 gills, 3 were keeper size. Saw no bass or pike on camera. Thats just the way it is on this lake sometimes, its like fishing Beaver, with the roving schools of fish

Went out looking for schools of crappie, could not find large numbers, just 1-3 fish occasionally passing thru. Same thing with the gills. Moved constantly the first 4 hrs, finally tired of that and sat the last two hrs at a hole over a nice weed bed. Finally found a lure they would hit, hooking 4 Crappie and landing 2-11 inchers. Part of the problem was that there were huge schools of minnows moving thru constantly, so it may have been a case of too much forage for them to be interested in a lure, and I didnt have any minnows along. Pulled in 14 gills, 6 keepers, with the biggest being a hair under 9 inches. Also jigged up a fat 25 1/2 inch pike and a 12 inch bass. Left the tip ups home this time. Not a real bad day, but lots of fruitless searching.

Drove around to area lakes to take water temperatures this morning.

Middle Gen was 54 at the launch.

Just a note to everyone.....Please pick up your trash on the ice!!!! I fished Middle Gen on Sunday and picked up 3 water bottles and a plastic bag filled with dead minnows. I only fished a small area so I'm assuming that there is more garbage left on the ice at other areas of the lakes.

I am not an expert but I asked that same question to a lot of people too and I think most everyone agreed that trout stay too deep to make the move. I am sure a couple made it over but I don't think anything major. Those trout usually stay 15-40 feet deep and that road was only covered at maybe 2-3 feet at the most. The lakes are actually connected through a perminant culvert under the road. Middle is a clean lake so I am sure they would survive but lower has better depth and is a touch cleaner I think. Who knows though...

Just wondering if we can expect to see trout in Middle since the lakes were connected for a while. I'm thinking there were lots of stocked trout left in Lower since the access was restricted for so long. Wondering if the trout could have crossed over into Middle and whether they would survive there.
