Fished the shallows on the south and north end from kayaks. Had several blow ups on top water stuff, missed a couple too. One nice bass on a buzz bait. Couple of bluegills were targeted at the end and were an easy catch.

I looked for Forest but could not see the Forest through the trees.
yuk yuk yuk!
Forest Lake. Nice place to go to if you are from the city and want to be on a beautiful , secluded lake. As for the fishing, literally 10 lakes right nearby that are better. I fish Forest once every few years. Catch lots of small pike, gills and crappie. Very few keepers. The few perch actually in this lake are around 6 inches. There are a few big bass that feast on the multitudes of stunted panfish, can be caught mainly shallow in open water
Thank you 262 Fishing. Tightlines
On the south end, there's a gravel shoulder just west of the park and ride on Wisconsin Ave. The trail starts between the two wooden posts. If you Google map it and use satellite view, it should help you picture it.
Where do you access this lake? Parking? any Springs to look out for? Thank you in advance.
Fished a couple hours yesterday morning. We had a small pike on a hotdog and a few tiny gills jigging wax worms. I'll have a video in a week or so, for those interested in seeing how we did.
Ice was a solid 4 to 5" most of the way through. I'm surprised it wasn't thicker, but should be after this weekend.

Went out around 830 till 1230 had 1 flag go off with a 22" Northern, caught a handful of small crappie and other pan fish on spoons and wax worms.
I lost a bag with my jig poles in it on Saturday 12/15/18. If you found it please message me.
