There is an aerator in the small bay just left of the access. I heard they are going to turn it on soon.

We have caught some small crappies over by the dam.....nothing of size and no keepers. Haven't hit any eye's, but only been out a couple times for 4 or so hours.

Yes, people are driving out there. Don't drive next to the dam....thats about the only place to worry about on Martin that I am aware of. You will usually see a little bit of open water over there. We walk on from that location...but no full size vehicles. My parent live on the north side of the lake.

I wasn't aware of the aerator.....good to know. Although I don't fish that area much.

I don't think there's an aerator in that lake. There is moving water by the access though. I believe the little creek that hooks to Linwood and Island either leave there or comes in there.

I didn't think there was an aerator either....but I would have to call my parents to double check.

The public boat access is on the South end of the lake. You can park and walk on to the east side of the lake by the dam (little creek) that goes under the road. There is a dam there for the water leaving the lake.

Nope, there is moving water in the little bay by the access. Of course, it might not be moving much right now. But, I have seen a couple years where the creek coming in there makes it a little wet. Not anything that would prevent you from accessing the lake though.

      If there was a wind on Sunday there would have been waves in some areas.  We drove our trucks through 6" of water or more in some spots (many spots were dry) and had water gushing up out of some holes in some areas.  Fishing was OK for us but nothing to brag about.  We had a good fish fry and brought a meal or two home, depending on the side dishes.

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.
