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.

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.

      Even in the metro the little bit of snow pack is insulating the ice pretty well so far. I've been out 3 days in a row and haven't noticed any significant melting. The forecasted rain for the next few days will probably change things a little.
