Lake George

9 posts in this topic

I have never fished Lake George before and was wondering how the shore fishing is. My brother has also been wondering if you could put a canoe in the lake and fish. We tried calling city hall and they told us to call the police department. Then the police department told us to call City hall.

If any of you guys have any information about the lake it would be appreciated.

I wouldn't waste your time. Unless you have a real tasty way to cook up bullheads. That is all I have ever caught. If you are looking for a close fishery....head to the beaver islands on the mississippi river. You will have a lot of fun down there. Good luck

I know a bunch of channel cats were dumped in there the past few years to help thin out the stunted fish, but I haven't fished that lake in 15+ years.

There is a variety of fish species in the lake. If you use the search function there was a thread on it about a year ago with info you are looking for.

Thanks for the help you guys. The other link from last year helped a little.

don't think they allow boats in there of any kind (with the exception of the paddle boats, which I think they are bringing back this summer)...

I have fond memories of fishing lake george back in the day...always caught plenty of sunnies and bullheads to keep us busy. My bro even managed a solid 1 pound GOLDFISH outta there one year.

I say give it a go!

GOLDFISH indeed!

I was walking around the lake with my kids last year and saw 3 in the shallows that I would describe as very fancy koi.

I haven't fished it for years but I bet you could find something to bite.
