Fish lake driving

6 posts in this topic

I was thinking of trying fish lake out this weekend and was just wondering what the best access on the lake is and the condition of roads. Is the majority of this lake safe to drive on?(any danger spot)

Thanks for the help!

You will get some good advice some time today on this. I myself have not been up there yet this year. I was also thinking of going on Sunday. From what I have read on this forum. staying on the main trails will be OK. Driving off to small bays with deep snow could be a problem.

Well there is HI-banks resort which could give you good info about driving out and will have decent roads. Then there is the public access which does have some paths from snowmobile/4wheeler traffic and whatever anybody plowed with vehicles. Stay away from the dam if you go over to the public access.

There on trucks all over the ice on fish lake, you can acess the lake by the dam, just keep the left, you will see all the cars and trucks out there

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
