This is another poorly managed cook county forest preserve lake. Only good for the twice a year trout stockings. Otherwise just a ton of stunted bluegills and small largemouth bass. This small lake is basically a smaller version of its close neighbor Axehead Lake. Some proper fish management is needed. Deep enough in spots to survive a bad winter, maybe some monitored stockings would help?

Hey people, Trout opener's 2 days from now. Does anybody know if they have Rainbow trout and/or brown trout? Is there any bait shops around here? Isn't this in Deer Park?

What is the biggest trout anybody ever caught here? I heard of a 10 pounder.

And if you catch andRelease your trout, are you allowed to catch more than 5?

I wish there were more Brook trout around here... Sad

Theres a gas station on the corner of river road and toughy ave. I believe its a mobile. They usually have crawlers and waxworms. No minnows.

I've fished it a few times and have only caught some small bass and maybe a dozen or so dink gills. Your better bet would be beck lake. Theres more cover and food for the fish. Still, most of the lakes around here are tough to catch anything decent, next to the lake front.
