Square Lake

5 posts in this topic

Hey does anyone know if you can still buy a day pass for the park to go ice fish out there? Is there any weird "no parking" rules like at lake elmo?

Has anyone been ice fishing out there? Is it any good? Just thought it would be a fun place to go with my new AquaVu since the water is so clear.

Thanks

It's got trout in that lake and I think it has trout rule's applied. I haven't ever ice fished there or out of trout fishing season.

The park has mail in forms at the entrance, $25 for the year. They raised the daily fee to $5. All Washington county parks are the same. Permits are required year round.

I've fished square a few times in the winter for trout, never found much action. The water is super clear as mentioned. If your looking for a good lake to test your camera, Big Marine has is super clear too, also has a large pike and bass population.

No trout stamp is required to fish there, HOWEVER, if you catch a trout you need a stamp to keep it.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
