Checked out this lake for the first time last weekend (December 21st). Nice thick ice currently. Parking was a little tight but not unreasonable, about 5-6 cars there already by 9:30 a.m. Most people were fishing the bay to the left of the boat landing but we headed out across the lake. Found a little action on panfish, but nothing as far as tip ups go. It really cleared out as the day went on, seemed like a morning bite for sure as a lot of people left before lunch. All in all a nice little lake for beginners and not overly crowded, although there were certainly a fair amount of people.

I like paddling around Rinehart lake in the summer tossing for bass, but I have never really caught anything through the ice, and it isn't for lack of trying. It's the only place I have been skunked so far this year. I don't see myself going there again.

One interesting thing I noticed is when I went there early in the season, I had gone to two other area lakes of similar size and found barely a couple inches of ice, but Rinehart had almost 6". I also noticed a spring bubbling through the ice where the weeds end on the east side of the boat landing, and another deeper in the weeds to the west.

Good luck to anyone that tries this lake. Nice place, but not very fishy.

I wouldn't even waste your time out there. Have fished it a few times and caught nothing more than 4" gills. Same goes for most of those eastern portage county lakes.

Fished this lake hard for several days early December with a group of guys and never did anything besides a few small bass.

I was out there last weekend as a matter of fact. Nice little lake but didnt catch much. I did see some people who lived on the lake getting a fair amount of flags across the lake on the northeast side. Theres like a little bay that almost looks like a stream feeds into the lake. Goodluck.

Thinking of trying this lake tomorrow. Never fished it before. Anybody have any clues what I can expect or a general area to fish? More than likely will just put out 3 tip ups might may jig a little. Its either this lake or Skunk Lake up the road. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
