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

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
