****IMPORTANT READ WHOLE MESSAGE****Walked out of ridge run today on the normal path. They have 3 no trespassing signs up and have put a chain across the road now. Still went out fishing and caught 5 nice gills and threw back a ton. However, was approached by the superintendents husband, who took my picture, and was told this was my warning and anyone from now on caught accessing the lake from ridge run marsh and not legally portaging the dam will have the sheriff called on them by his wife. Apparently they have had vandals breaking in to cabins and wrecking stuff.

A small amount of trespassing is required, the end of the walk is not public. Be careful of the flowing water near the dam, might be unsafe right now.

It's a bit of a walk, but you can get to it from ridge run park.

Is there any public access for this lake? My kids and I see it from the Glacier Ice Age Trail but there does not seem to be a way to get to the lake... any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks -D

"Yah I probably shouldn't bottle it all up BigPike1 "

That is very good young man, you have grown. There was a time when you bottled it all up and stuffed a cork in it. Continue to let it flow and everything will be OK.

As far as Lucas goes, haven't fished it 20 years or so. It was pounded back then like I am sure it gets pounded on now. Maybe all the little pikey's have much feed this year and don't need to eat your shiners and suckers.

Hey dinner, if you're trolling for a reply here it is: You have absolutely no concept of fisheries management, and since you are getting your primary information from "websites you Googled" rather than peer reviewed journal articles you obviously have no background in science or natural resources and thus are in no position to be telling people how they should be harvesting fish from a body of water. Although the concept of "fewer fish more food per fish" is partially correct, you'd would literally have to be harvesting TENS of THOUSANDS of bluegills in the 1-4" range and THOUSANDS of pike in the 1-10" range each year to make the alterations you think you're making by exploiting the lake for everything it has. The competition that causes stunting occurs early in a fish's life when they are still feeding primarily on plankton well before they're able to be caught with hook and line.

Many of our lakes in WI have an over abundance of spawning habitat which produces too many fry and high competition early in each fish's life, limiting their growth rates. (common for perch and pike that both use aquatic vegetation as spawning substrate) Stunted bluegill populations are also usually naturally occurring, but over harvest of large parental male bluegills also leads to significant decrease in size structure. The North American Journal of Fisheries Management has published numerous articles and studies addressing the mechanisms that cause stunting in many different fish species. I suggest you read up on them before you tell people what they should keep and why they should keep it.

It's no wonder the average size of gamefish in Lucas has noticeably declined over the last 6 years with anglers like you thinking they need to keep everything in order to improve the size structure.

And if you weren't trolling, I'm sorry.... that the DNR allows you to purchase a fishing license every year

You guys are completely wrong. Keeping every fish in this particular lake , "lucas" is the right thing to do. Keep all the small blue gills and pike , within regulations, you can. 90% of the fish in there are stunted. It's because there isn't enough food or forage in the lake to feed all the fish. Which in turn makes the fish adapt to a less of eating life.

BOTTOM LINE IS: the more fish you keep out of lucas "smaller fish" the bigger the fish will get. More food!

These aren't my 2 cents this is my whole $1.00. Because it's the truth.

type in google " why do fish get stunted" and every web site will tell you the same thing.

For other lakes catch and release on big fish is the right thing to do. I'm guilty of keeping nice fish and so is everyone else but you gotta put them back if you want a big fish population.
