anybody have some info on Sarah lake near Rockford? Wondering about the launch area, where it is, how many parking spaces, and do you need a park permit the park there. Also wondering how the bass and crappie fishing is on this lake. I heard that it can get real weedy. Also wondering if there are walleyes in the lake. If so, any good starting spots would be greatly appreciated.

No walleye but I always laugh when people ask if there are good crappies and bass on lakes around here beacause 95% of our lakes have excellent bass and crappie fishing. If you go to a lake within 60 miles of here and you don't catch fish it's not because the lake isn't any good.

Sorry about the smart a.. response. Sarah is a good bass lake, no fee, good access, sad parking, lots of weeds, which is a plus.
My advise is to fish the inside weed edge, and lilly pads with a jig and pig 1/4 oz and any other sloppy cover available. When it gets hot and the water levels go down, then back off the bank and fish the deeper milfoil weed line with a 1/2oz jig.
Good luck buddy!!!

Just fished it Tuesday night. Our league and another league. About 20 boats on a 250 acre lake makes for tough fishing. The other league managed quite a few bass. The colder temps had the bigger fish in deeper water. We picked up a 19" bass and a 30+" northern (which I managed to break off at the boat) and a 12" crappie. I ice fished this lake about a half dozen times and always did well on crappies. The lake is already weeded up pretty badly. It is chock full of milfoil. In a week or two when things warm up I would suggest fishing inside the milfoil but now the big ones are outside. The little ones are shallow so if you want action that is the place to hit. As was said the parking sucks and no fee to park. Let us know how you do if you go.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
