Hare lake

I see in sundays paper that they are going to kill off everything in the lake. Stock them kill them. I guess I am confused.gif

It's called rehabilitation:) too many unwanted species get into a stocked trout lake, kill it off and start over with a clean slate. It seems excessive, but catching 3 inch perch when you're angling for brookies isn't much fun...

Every Designated Trout lake we have have has been "Reclaimed" by killing off the unwanted fish. I has to be that way in order for the trout to have a chance. I don't think it kills the bug life though and I'll give you a tip. A few years after the new stocking the lakes are on fire. Trout grow fast when introduced into a lake full of insect life that up till then had a chance to multiply without predation from fish.

I'll have to read the article, sometimes before they reclaim a lake they open it up to promiscuous fishing.

fishing 9/1 to 9/23 you may use miltiple lines, but not seines or other nets. Fish maybe taken in any quanity and rough fish may be sold. You MUST have a licenses.The browns used to be good in there but faded down in population. Rainbows not bad.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
