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 have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.
