Been fishing all summer long. Had the best experience first time out caught a super fat 19 inch rainbow. Beautiful fish. Getting that one mounted. Fish have been hit or miss. If you know how to fish them. Good luck! Big Smile

I have been fishing on sunset lake for a little while each day while I have been staying at Cwes for class. I have been catching a bunch of small bass out of the lake. I would like to take a canoe out to see if I can catch any trout.

I agree, This is a bowl shaped lake with nothing to brag about, little rainbows for the kids, but other than that, I wouldn't waste a trip.

Went on here two days ago with a group of guys. Out of eight guys fishing only four fish were caught. All bass on a red buckshot and small minnow in about 15 feet. We saw and marked quite a few fish on sonar but they were pretty tight lipped.

Fished this afternoon for 3 hours or so. Marked a lot of fish but were very finicky. Moved around a lot to catch a lot of small gills and one perch. A few nice gills mixed in.

Fished sunset for about an hour this afternoon. Moved around with the vex until we found the fish, Most of the gills were holding around 22ft. Caught quite a few decent fish, but no real nice fish. My buddy also managed a 16" rainbow in 15ft on a waxie. Beautiful fish.
