Schilling lake

Recommended Posts

I was driving around yesterday and noticed about 10 houses out on Schilling lake by New Auburn. Anyone heard if they are getting anything out there or is it just a bunch of kids doing what kids do?

Any numbers to it or is it just an occasional fish or two. I've been looking for a place to set up a couple flags in the area. Is it worth my time?

Any kind of depth or structure out there? I'm assuming it's a bowl like most other lakes in the area. Not asking for a secret spot, just if the lake is worth exploring. I'm new to the area and trying to figure it all out.

not even close to a bowl more like 4ft all the way until you get to the houses thats maybe 6ft its basically a marsh that miraculously produces some fish

Probably migrants from Buffalo Creek is my guess.

I've got a friend who has been out there several times in the past week and I joined him this past Tuesday. We didn't see a fish Tues. and he has speared three fish in six trips out there. For whatever reason the pike don't seem to bite if you angle for them but they are coming in to spearing decoys and it is by no means fast and furious action. It certainly is strange seeing ice houses on this lake though.

I thought it looked funny too! I wonder if the lake has any springs to keep it from freezing out? With what I've heard about the size most of these fish have to be 4-5 years old or older. I wonder if they stay in the lake year round or if they just migrate there from the creek at certain times of the year.

Since I'm fairly new to the area can anyone tell me if the conecting creek from Buffalo Creek to the lake is open year round? If so I might try to venture there this Sunday.

The connecting creek is very tiny and it is usually dried up by the middle of June in a normal year. It is dry right now and it empties into one of the shallower areas of the lake.

Yup, the creek coming in is a ditch. I may have shot a few ducks on that lake, but never caught a fish out there yet.
