Toohey Lake, Fourmile Lake , off the Sawbill trail

3 posts in this topic

Anyone know if these lakes are worth fishing opening day ? They look as if they would be nice little lakes to try. So if anyone knows how busy the lake(s) will be and if the landings are safe with the low water levels ?

Thanks and good fishing.

I've opened on those lakes. Toohey has a USFS campground semi private campground. Shallow water at the landing and entire shoreline. Take a pole with to push yourself out to deeper water. A few sites have lake access but again its shallow. Not a lot of structure but study a map and you can find some. Also keep your eyes peeled for emerging weeds.

Fourmile has a very small open campground.

The landing has a small dock with somewhat shallow water but you shouldn't have a problem getting a boat in. No sites have water access.

Theres a reef that that parallels the island and some other hidden treasures that will ruin your day. Its not a big lake and your there to fish so taking is slow and careful is the way to go.

Neither are really busy and both have fish in them. They we're both worth fishing.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
