Check down a few posts to Bass Abductors comment. He has fished this lake as hard as anyone the last 20 years. Don't disappoint your friend by bringing him here. Just let him have his good memories from the past

Does anyone know if there's still a good population of flathead here? It's been at least 10 plus years since I've fished here. A good friend that stopped fishing about 10 years ago wanted to go flathead fishing and asked about coming back here since we used to come here all the time. Last I remember about the last couple of times I was here, it was kind of hard to catch bluegills for bait and also we didn't have any luck catching anything else. If anything, we might go to wisconsin river somewhere or maybe fish the fox, but with the recent rain I'm fearing the water might be too high and rough.
I would pay the season pass for sure! I miss this lake so much!
I know this topic has been covered before, but what would it take for a group of us to pay to stock game fish here? DNR? Alliant Energy? Hybrid Stripers, Largemouth, Smallmouth. Also... crazy thought, but what would it take to find out if we could get red drum (aka Redfish) stocked? They're typically a coastal fish but are closely related to freshwater drum and can thrive in warm fresh water... just not successfully spawn.
This lake has SO much potential if the right people took an interest. Hell, I'd pay for a seasonal pass to fish it if that would get someone to properly manage it.
So what's up with this lake these days? It used to be a good place to catch bass during the winter. Just wondering if the LM and SM fishing is worth a visit?
Has anyone caught any flatheads lately? Im thinkin of making a trip. You can message if you want. Thanks
Yes I did they tasted ok to me when Ive eaten fish from there. They are a little stronger than normal channel cats or green sunfish though
