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.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
