Farm and Garden Lake at Moose Track Resort

4 posts in this topic

We are headed up to Moose Track Resort on Farm Lake. I am wondering what to expect and bring fishing. It sounds like Farm and Garden Lake are part of a chain up there. I will be with small kids, so I am looking for it all. Panfish for the kids and smallies and walleye for me. Getting a few larger pike would also be fun. I am wondering if others have fished the lakes and what to expect this time of year. Thanks for all replies!

We didn't get a chance for a week vac this year up there frown.gif

We use to spend a week in July at Timbertrail lodge.

There is a hump/reef on farm that is good for Walleyes and Smallies. Leeches used with tiny glow jigs under slip bobbers work in 6-12 ft early am and before dark.

Troll shad raps in this area also. Colors Perch, firetiger, clown, gold.

Post your results when you come back!!!

Thanks for the info rodmaker. I found the hump you were talking about. Fishing was slow for me. Overall leeches with a slip bobber did the best for me. Highlights were a 31" Northern, 15" smallie, and the kids and I got into some 8"-9" sunnies. Walleyes were few and far between and in the 10"-12" range for us. My buddy also did get a very nice crappie. A very mixed bag with low numbers of each, but we managed a few, and like I said the kids got theirs so that was good. FYI - Most all of our fish were off of the islands in 6' fow or less.

If you can next year , go up there in July, anytime after the 4th. The hump always produces out there. You will catch plenty of eyes and bigger smallies. last year trolling cranks , I caught and released a 22" Smallie. Graphite replica is going to get done on this. I'll probably send in the photo this Winter. Waiting to see if i can pull a 30" this Fall trolling cranks.

One last thought. If you get a chance, contact Bill at Timbertrail. They catch some of the biggest walleyes in Fall trolling cranks. They have a guide that works with their resort. grin.gif

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
