There was a lot of slush on fish in a lot of areas before our big snow fall and now with all the snow it may make more. Snowmobile is the best way to travel now. Wheelers will get you to some spots but a sled would be better.

Walking a house out could be a lot of work now depending on where you want to go.

Frank and JR, and I went on our sleds for dinner and fish was all slush all over. It will take awhile for me to even try after tonight. Slush every where confused.gif. If you stay on the trails you should be ok but if you go off you are in for a work out. four wheelers are not recommended Sleds only.

If you can get on some old tracks and old fishing areas that slushed up and froze after out first big snow you might be OK.

Accessing from Hi Banks is your best bet, from there get onto the sled tracks that travel from the flowage to the Eagles Nest, then branch off to your fishing spots.

At any rate you'll get into slush at some point.

Plenty of ice on Fish lake its just that the top layer isn't thick enough to hold a person up. I walked off a snowmobile path out of the public landing and fell into about 6 inches of water! Plenty of snowmobiles going over it and some 4 wheelers just plowing through it. Hopefully it will get cold enough to freeze all of it.

Sounds like cold and then some rain. Wish it was rain then cold. This years weather really screwed up some good fishin we had going.

has anyone been out the last couple of days? hoping that the warm weather melted off some of the snow and make traveling across the lake better. hate to think the only fishing trip I will get to make was the one to LOW last weekend. did well up there, 5 of us took home 24 eyes and sauger, lost a few and threw back alot of small ones.

Fish Lake still has a lot of slush all over the place. Narrows is ok and stay on snowmobile trail or wheeler trails or you will surely be stuck in a wheeler. A snowmobile should be ok.

More snow talk now so it wont help any. Lets hope the weather guessers are wrong again and we get some below O weather.

Just wanted to give an update. Last Sunday I got out to Fish Lake at around 700am...it was pretty slow for most of the day, and then it happened. I finally got to really see how my new Marcum worked because it was flashing like crazy! It was a feeding frenzy...I caught my limit of crappies in the early evening. The lake was slushy in some places, but as long as you traveled on the tracks it wasn't that bad...worth the work after that night. Crappie minnows and orange color was the bait of lure of choice in about 10 FOW!! I'll be out again this weekend, it was a blast on a nice sunny day.

Hey guys I was just informed by my roomate that there was a thread about fish lake. I have been out there quite a bit recently. I was actually out tonight and took home 9 crappies. I have been fishing by the dam using glow jigs with crappie minnows with good outcomes. There have been a lot of full size vehicles driving out in this area. I only usually get out in the afternoon and just pound them between 4-545. If any of you see a big black frabil xl house out there don't be afraid to stop by and say hi, the name is Joel.

Thanks Joel for the response...we may go out to Fish tomorrow from 230-700. It's a toss up, we may go to Grand? We'll give an update regardless.

The Dam is located at the end of the black top on the Fish lake dam road. It is the public access to the lake. Look for the brown DNR Public Access signs. Do you know where the Fish lake dam road is located?
