Heading to Alpine and Ogishkemuncie-Any suggestions?

5 posts in this topic

I am heading up next weekend (22nd-24th) for some Trout and Walleye fishing on Ogishkemuncie and thought I would fish Alpine on our way home on Sunday. Any suggestions on what to use or where to find fish in either of the lakes?

Thanks,

Steve

Unfortunately I don't know these lakes for fishing, but will also be up there the same time. Maybe we'll cross paths on Ogish. We are gonna be there on the 24th I believe.

I'm sure you know but all of this area burned in the last 2 years so be ready for that.

I will be fishing my way out on the 24th. We will most likely be in a dead grass grumman double end. I will be the dark haired guy in the back of the canoe, and be with a balding red haired guy. If you see us, head over our way and hopefully we will be able to tell you where they are biting.

jasper has some trout as well...... just tool around in the middle and keep yer bait near the bottom..... best campsite in the area is on jasper (on the right as you come from alpine-- high up on a cliff there).... good cliff jumping and beautiful views off of site...... don't bother fishing bass/northern/walleye here.....

i haven't really fished ogish for trout, but have done very well for walleye and bass...... there's an island campsite towards the other end of the lake on the left side as you come from kingfisher..... an inflow comes in there down a channel..... good walleye spot up and down the channel and lots of decent smallies-- everyone in our group of 8 caught a smallie over 4 lbs. here...... at night just get out by the little falls there and pitch raps and cranks and plastics in the current for walleye...... during the day anchor by the flow and slip bobber or drift slowly and jig the channel.....

also, the whole area above the outflow to kingfisher is good for walleyes..... just get out of the shallow channel and into that bay a little ways and find a little bit of depth near the current..... kingfisher has 'em too, but i wouldn't keep 'em in there, cuz it's a pretty small lake...... fish the little bay by the inflow from ogish at night.....

i've never stopped at alpine-- looks like a nice lake, though.... if you really want trout, make the trip into kekekabec..... or little kek..... both are full of 'em.... good luck.... let us know how it goes.....

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
