What a shame......I watched in utter amazement as numerous white-bellied game fish again were falling over the spillway in record numbers......because of the flooded retention pool, all of our fish are being donated to Plum Creek and the lucky ones make it to the Mississippi.....either way, they are gone from Lake Carroll forever. With all of the money wasted on the golf course and the proposal for the ski lodge, one would think that the Association, with the pushing of the Lake Manager, would attempt to construct a barrier to keep OUR fish in OUR lake.. The most precious resource of Lake Carroll is it's fish population and its sad that they are allowed to be flushed out when the lake is over-pool. I'm not saying that there is an easy answer to the barrier issue, but nothing has even been attempted. Well, hopefully the fish that are still in the lake reproduce well enough to make up for the thousands that are being lost as we speak.

late report from 3/25, 3/28, 3/29. Fished channel by east marina. think we ended with about 12 largemouth and 1 walleye and several panfish over four hours fishing or so. Lot of fun for the kids. All the non panfish came on storm gt 360 searchbaits. Once we realized they were working, we just kept throwing them. It was getting chased all day by the largemouth.
Far as the bite goes, panfish bite is always solid. The kids and I find we catch the biggest ones when we throw on leaches (which are sold at the fast stop) and a bobber. As it get's warmer you will get lots of smallmouth on these as well and some big ones.... There is a good amount of structure, and maps available which can show you much of it... though I haven't got an updated map in several years. I am assuming they are available if you have the right connection.... Good luck!
Hello everyone , I am possibly looking at purchasing a lot and looking to fish lake carroll. I am a panfish and walleye fisherman as well as my wife and kids. Can anyone share info on how the panfish bite is and sizes? Also what is the lake like....cribs....weed beds...etc. please message me if u have any info. Thanks so much
