Fished this morning 7am to 11 am. 10 to 15 ft of water just off the weeds. 7 decent perch snd about 10 nice gills between 2 of us. Park was extremely busy.
66° - 70° F

Got out during the rain today, and got my 3 trout in a couple hours. The fish were really biting and I had the whole lake to myself. Caught 11 fish but a lot of little ones and missed twice that many. Didn't see much for weeds or beds, so bass and bluegills are yet to come.
Yes there are boats out. Park opens at 6am and closes at 7pm. Its closed on wednesdays for cleaning.
are they letting boats on the lake or even letting you in the park?
There is a lot of pan fishing in the summer, but I think a lot of it is tourists. There are quite a few pan fish in there, but in most of the popular areas around the weeds on the North and south shallow, they run fairly small. I do hear they sometimes get into some good size ones along the rocks on east side of the lake.
Does anyone ever panfish this lake in winter, or is it more so a trout lake? Also, what would be a couple decent lakes/backwater to try for gills/crappies or perch?
Fished 10-4 today and it was kind of slow. Managed to ice 2 14” browns and lost a monster brown at the hole. 33 feet of water and all fish came on crappie minnows. Ice was good with just a little snow cover.
How’s the ice after the warm weekend/ start to the week?
The season is closed after this Sunday March 1.
