Decent lake but hard to fish in mid summer plus a huge forage of baitfish, bug hatch and more crawfish than ever. This is great for the fish and their health but tough to catch them.

Spent a week there, the weather was windy all week. We average a walleye a night, saw one dead musky about 40 inches floating along the shore. Saw dust littered the shoreline, apparently they use to dump saw dust in the lake during the logging days. If the weather and time of year were right i could see going back.
