Jeanette Lake is a 612 acre lake located eleven miles east of Buyck with its access' off the north side of the Echo Trail. There are two public landings on the south side of the lake. The main public landing has a concrete ramp with parking for approximately ten trucks and trailers. The other is located in the US Forest Service managed Jeanette Lake Campground. Jeanette has a maximum depth of 15 feet and the water is dark brown. Jeanette Lake is generally quite rocky and surrounded entirely by public land. Aquatic plants are sparse and grow to a depth of 6 feet. Navigational hazards exist throughout the lake from shallow reefs to rogue boulders. These hazards may not always be marked, use caution. The overall gillnet catch rate for all fish combined was 28.8 fish/net; a fair amount lower than the historic average. Fish species sampled in gill nets were yellow perch, walleye, white sucker, and northern pike. The overall trapnet catch rate for all fish combined was 7.9 fish/net which was close to average for the lake. Fish species sampled in trap nets were the same four as sampled in gill nets indicating a relatively simple fish community. The 2014 walleye gillnet catch rate was 6.3 fish/net which was a little below normal compared to similar lakes throughout the state. Walleye lengths ranged from 7 to 30 inches with an average of 14 inches (1.4 pounds). Growth is just below average compared to other lakes in the area. Ages ranged from 1 to 18 years old. The bulk of the catch was made up of 1 to 6 year old fish. Jeanette lake is not scheduled to be stocked because of strong evidence of good natural reproduction, however it has been used in recent years as a lake that can receive surplus walleye fry from the Pike River Hatchery when an excess of fry are available. The northern pike gillnet catch was 2.4 fish/net which was slightly better than 25% of other similar lakes throughout the state. Sizes ranged from 17 to 34 inches with an average of 22 inches. Average weight was 2.7 pounds which was above 75% of other similar lakes. The yellow perch catch rate (14.3/gill net) was quite high compared to other similar lakes throughout the state. Perch sizes in 2014 were similar to past investigations, averaging 8 inches. The largest perch was 11.5 inches.
