As far as the depth of Fountain goes the lake is pretty much a bowl with the deepest water just south of the narrows. Max depth 10'. I don't know much about the fishing besides that there are plenty of bullheads, its a safe bet there are better lakes lakes close to Montrose. One that comes to mind would be Crawford Lake. It has special fishing regs for walleye (2 fish daily) largemouth bass (catch and release only) sunfish and crappie (5 each daily) and perch (10 fish daily. Crawford was also stocked with channel cattfish to help control the bullhead population. Otherwise there is always Buffalo Lake for walleyes and crappie, just be prepared for the crowds. Good Luck

Follow 25 north, 1.95 miles to 40th street( its the road going east just north of the crow river bridge), go east( right turn) about 1/2 mile. You should see a sign for public access on the road.

You turn left the road will go straight to the lake. Good luck

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
