Sylvan is a decent Crappie lake. It has a special regulated limit of 5 Crappies daily per person. Look in the channel between the two lakes for panfish and the upper lake for walleyes. Small northerns are plentiful in both lakes but there are larger ones as I personally caught a 13 pounder a couple years ago. Walleyes sometimes hang out on the sunken rock pile on the upper lake but you need to fish after dark as the lake is very clear. Too much boat traffic in the summer on weekends to fish during the day anyways. Hope this helps and good luck.

Also has a very good LMB population with VERY good size - pulled a 6.5 out of there the year before on upper end.

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
