We have a cabin on the east bowl and the fishing can be awesome at times! Did really well on pannies with small leeches and slowly drifting across some of the shallower humps! The west bowl is typically better for eyes. I havent found the crappies but have seen some of the ones the neighbor had, and wow were the dandies! Get a good map and find the humps and your sure to find some of the nice sunnies! Also theres a old road bed that tops out around 15 ft that runs from the eastern island towards the sw shore, which is another great spot to start ur search!

I FISH THE LAKE A COUPLE TIMES A WEEK IN THE SUMMER. This last year there were lots of crappies in that 8-9 inch range. Should be some really good fishing for a few years. Plenty of sunnies but you have to sort though them.

Find where the road bed comes out from the old pit landing site and go out to where it turns west. Find some 15-17' of water and watch out for the underwater brush and rip some lips.

Another spot is the second island (from the new public access into the pit) go to the NE side near the point from shore and look for the same depths. There is an old underwater channel (runs 20-24') from the old days of mining that comes up there with a bunch of old brush that produces as well.

Wish I could send a picture with the spots marked for you.

I grew up fishing that old pit then they blew the dam and it got BETTER !

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
