I am going to be coming up there for Labor Day weekend. Will it still be deep enough to bring a fishing boat? Also, where is a safe spot (and deep enough) to drop the boat in?
That mat of weeds coming into the lake at the west end, was so thick 20 years ago, that there was barely a path leading through it into the lake. I think gaining some weeds or vegetation in the lake is a good thing. I can't imagine this lake being taken over by weeds anymore. I believe the weed or vegetation gains are certainly due to less carp in the lake.

Fished with "Critter"Curt-t-o.Fished weed lines, drifted lake & worked around river mouth vegetation (word:weeds have nasty connotation)Nice seeing crappie numbers(8 inch) in lake. Early Sun a.m. large mouth bass going crazy on 3-4 inch rubber minnow type tail on jighead. Caught much kept zero. Too many N. Pike in lake-opinion. Counted 3 flocks(approx. 150) of pelicans early am Sun. flying west to east over Lake P. DEPTH: Approx 5 to 5 1/2 feet of water. Temp low 70's. Loved hearing band " Visitors" music wafting from Good Old Days, across Lake P. Critter you should have danced!
I don't know if you realize this but those patches have been there the past four years and go back 12 years ago they were thicker. I wouldn't have much worry about current conditions it's Puckaway. More weeds mean clearer water, less wind turbulence. There are positive and negatives to each situation.
hey guys. i am going to be in the area in a couple weeks and it is only going to be for a short time. i am looking to kill some time by doing some shore fishing. any have any suggestions? don't care what i catch bc i can't keep anything. just want to wet a line and relax. thanks
