Has anyone ever tried Swan Lake? Any reports?

The opera by Tchaikovsky is stunning, but I don't think he ice fished. Maybe we could come up with an ice fishing opera. The title could be "My Frozen Heart".

Yep, thats the one. Why did you quit fishing there? Did it get fished hard or is it just not a great lake? My girlfriends parents have a cabin on the lake so I figured I'd give it a try.

Fishing wasnt ever real great out there, you can get some baitfish but game fish are hard to find. I was down in Fergus the last couple of days and tried some different lakes. I didnt get time to get over there to take a look to see if an houses were up, but to be honest, I havnt heard anything real good about it in some time. the Perch

I haven't yet. I'm hoping to go this weekend. The kids schedule lightened up so now I might get a little extra fishing time.

Very nice, let me know how you do. I use to have a cabin out there back when I was going to HS in FF back in the early 90's. We were near the public access. I'd like to get back there sometime, if there's fish of course. the Perch

My girlfriend and her family all have cabins up there. It sure is a nice lake. Hope there are some fish in it.

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
