Quam Lake

5 posts in this topic

Anyone over ALex way ever fish Quam Lake? It is just off the Barrett-Alex road? I fished it a lot as a kid and a college guy 25 years ago. We used to get big Northern and big Bass out of the lake.

Not sure if it fishable during hard water or what the skinny is...any thoughts?

MM...i'm guessing nobody's been on there lately, or regularly. no designated public access. can't give you much more info on the fishing there either. latest DNR survey was done in 1965...numbers back then showed lots of black bullhead. but at 178 acres and 14 ft deep, there's potential to hold a lunker or two. might have to launch the kayak out there this spring...

That lake freezes out quite often.

      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
