Not much happening out there.

No problem getting on. If the gate is open in the "winter" you can go on. If the gate is closed in the "winter" you can't go on But, do not leave trash at the access or on the lake.

There is no access to the lake in summer.

Was out there 4 times this year with NO luck and my buddy fishes it hard every year. this is the first time in at least 4 years that he pulled his permanent off of Scott. Moved it to Pearl and had MUCH better luck. The few times I was out, it was the dead sea. And I agree with Robbo. The land owner is gracious enough to open the gate in the winter for us to enjoy. If the word gets out too much on this lake and the weekenders go there and leave [PoorWordUsage] all over, he'll close the gate off for everyone. So enjoy that lake, and all lakes for that matter, repsonsibly! Good luck!

Prechlerker, I hope your getting permission to go out there in the summer. I was over at the owners house the other night, there keeping an eye on it, because someone let the cows out one time, during the summer, thats why they don't want people in there during summer, when the cows are pastured there.

You can get to Scott by portaging from another lake, but I believe since the land owner owns all of the land around the lake, you still need permission in the summer. And just out of curtiousy, I would ask.

Nope- as long as accessing by the river you don't need permission.

I did ask them about that, they can't control any going up or down the river.

Good Luck if you go there.

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
