No one is gonna argue the lake needs more vegetation. 

But, water quality was great in 2016 best I've ever seen.  Weed Growth was good as well. The lake looked healthy.    No one has an explanation for the lack of algae blooms and clear water in 2016 except the levels were good and we had steady rain. 

Personally Im concerned on the lack of carp removal the last 2 years.  I think the last 2 years the lake was on a rebound due to the agressive carp removal in 2012, 2013 and 2014.   But with no carp being pulled out the last 2 years it could go down fast. 

Im not convinced on the draw down.  I think the lake's vegetation is most dictated by how much carp is in the mud pool.

A. Alex speaks the truth. The cure for Puckaway is here for us. Let's not pass on the treatment!  Take the medicine of a couple low water years and we will all enjoy the lake's good health!

What does Buffalo Lake offer that Puckaway doesn't ? Vegetation to hold bait fish & cover for  adult game species. We all know adult walleyes will run as far upstream until something impedes them. Well we know the door is open to Buffalo with the new fish ladder and the removal of  low head dam years ago on the Fox River above Puckaway. FISH THE BUFF! Hearings & Future Plans tell us The Puck needs vegetative cover & health of the system is poor.Recovery is long and medicine needed is unpleasant, but necessary. STRAP IT UP FISHERPEOPLE OF THE PUCK! Recovery is long , the problems didn't happen overnight. Drawdown is in the near future.

Here's a pic my cottage neighbor took a couple of days ago. This is the north shore and is open quite a ways out. I would expect it to open all the way up by next week, if not sooner.

The lake is not open I looked at my web cam at 11:00 am on Tuesday and it is still frozen. My house is near Arrowhead Camp grounds.

Hey guys, was hoping some of you might be able to help a fellow fisherman out. My buddy and I are making a trip down next weekend to fish in the Fox River surrounding Puckaway or fish Puckaway itself. I was hoping I could get some tips on where to find walleye or whitebass and what the best strategies are (verticals jigging in the river or casting shad raps or whatever). Feel free to pm me or post on here. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys! Tight lines!
