I grew up fishing this lake, i have caught my personal best walleye (6lbs middle of summer), pike(11lbs in the winter) and sunfish(1 lb in the spring)on this lake. So yea it is a very good lake, just get there befire the weeds do in the middle of summer.

I'm hoping to go there the week after the opener. I've only fished it in winter, so it'll be pretty new to me too. I plan on launching in red barn bay...is the mouth of the sauk river big/deep enough to go up a ways in a small boat?

I would not, unless you have a flat bottom boat. There are rocks and other debris in the river. There are is plenty of structure in the lake so i would not worry about going up the river.

Bass, we stay on the lake , It is a great place to get the kids on some panfish.

The lake has a good population of crappies,sunfish,bass and pike.

The walleye fishing has been best for us early in the year.

There are plenty of place's to fish as said before there is all kinds of structure in Sauk.

If you see a green 1850 sportfish give a wave.

As good as the fishing may be in the lake...and I hope it is, my curiousity will get the better of me and I'll try to get up the river. But yeah, ever since I looked sauk up on the DNR lakefinder I've wanted to make a trip up there. I did so so there in the winter.

i usually have pretty good luck when i fish sauk. early season and late season always seems to be the best for me when it comes to walleyes, and the rest of the time i catch big bass and northern. right now i have had a really good bite on crappies...its a fun lake so i hope you enjoy it when you get there

Sounds like there is alot of great fishing in this lake. Big bass and some monster pike.

I was looking at a map, looks like a interesting lake with alot of different structure. Its the lake hard to figure out?

no.. from that very bay I was talking about stay on that side of the lake and keep heading south.. There is what the locals call Hoopers pasture or the sheep pasture... slip bobber some redtails in about 12-17 feet of water for the eyes.. otherwise go back to sauk centre and fish em under the bridge in town where the dam is grin.gif

Actually, the panfish just moved into the shallows. I was out this weekend and almost every sunfish i caught was still full of eggs, so i would look to the shallow bays.
