Tried to get out this morning at 9ish but launch was full. :( So had to head elsewhere with the boat. Came back at around 3ish and fished from shore at the launch for 30 mins. Got a couple little gills and a bass and walleye.
The Denoon Launch can be deceiving.
For those trying to get on at the public launch that river flowing into the lake doesn't help but if you decide to walk to the right (I think there's a no trespassing sign there now) beware that at the shoreline it's 3-4 feet deep.
I know because a few years back I went on in the morning with good ice and came off feeling the ice bend under my feet. I though I could get off safer exiting there and I was one step from safety and I fell straight down through the ice. I walked right out and was very lucky that somehow only the cuffs of my bibs got wet.
I don't trust rivers or springs. Good luck and stay safe.
To those "doubting Thomases" who don't believe the unsafe ice reports just given here then there's not much anyone can say to you to change your minds. I was here last week, and also at Denoon, and I couldn't get out from the public launches. Someone is just trying to have you not waste your time rather than "having the lake to themselves." Both of these lakes are big enough for lots of people but even when the ice is good not many fish them because they are both tough bites. But go see for yourself if you must. It doesn't matter to me or those others that posted. Just trying to save you time and maybe a dunking.
