Been fishing this lake for the last 12 years and over the past 3 seasons noticed the pan-fish population has plummeted. It's to the point where you are lucky to catch a crappie. I have talked with a few guys and word is the spawning seasons have been affected by odd weather patterns in the spring. Over fishing also seems to be a problem. Small mouth and walleye seem to be as healthy as it always was. Still see the occasional muskie. When I first started fishing here you'd get tired of catching pan-fish every cast and start throwing larger lures to change things up. My advice is throw stuff back if its a pan-fish. The regulations for this lake should be changed to reflect the health of the current population for a few seasons to see if it will improve.
61° - 65° F
81° - 88° F
Was out Monday and did good on walleye. No keepers,all fish over slot at 21'' to 23''. Did not find the pan fish.
Anyone having luck? Worth bringing the kids?
Looking to maybe try some musky fishing out here this weekend. Haven't fished the lake before when does the algae bloom start to take over if it hasn't already?
71° - 75° F

any updates on the lake/ fishing and camping? Looking to head up soon. Thanks
Sam, your picture/link isn’t working. Curious as to what it was. Guessing a big fish was involved
This was devastating
15 inch sucker, let that sink in
Lake access has good parking. Lot of room for kids to run around and camp sites. Multiple species of fish for the kids to catch with a hook & bobber. Kentuck is known for its Muskie population. Can access from Route 70 and county road A.
Does anybody know if the ice is out of landing by the campground yet? I went up their last week and ice was still covering from the point straight up to the landing. Thanks in advance.
