Info on Trowbridge Lake

5 posts in this topic

Has anybody fished this lake? Also, does anyone know if the access to Lake Olaf is open this year?

The access to Lake Olaf is flooded out due to high water on that lake. I have never fished Trowbridge.

Yeah, it's been closed for a few years, was hoping it would reopen. I have always fished the lake 3-4 times a year when we go to visit relatives in Barnesville. I would catch alot of nice bass and healthy northerns. Also was a make shift launch on East Olaf, is that still there?

I fish Trowbridge quite a bit. Realy shallow landing with no dock, gets intersting some timess. There are some nice bass in there as well as good amount of panfish and some eyes. This year has not been the best year for torwbridge so far, too much pressure when the bite was on early in the spring

My parents had a cabin on Trowbridge for a number of yeaqrs and it is a nice lake for pan fish and bass. Sometimes the crappies will have a really do class and they can be caught by the hundreds. The bass action can be great. I have one on my wall caught back in the late 80s.

Eyes are never the fish to cahse out there but can be found at times.

Good luck.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
