Very nice state park! Good fishing too. Not the best for walleyes, in general, but if you know what you're doing and work at it, they are in there. Park is one of the best in the system, IMO.

Yup, forgot that small change mad I checked Sibley and my other favorite state park. Sibley looks booked for the 4th. My annual June trip to Carlos looks like it may skip a year too. You could still get in if you're lucky enough to time it right and get one of the sites they don't reserve, but it's kind of a [PoorWordUsage] shoot. Back - up plan would be needed.

Always a chance there will be cancellations. Booking a year out?? That's a bit rediculous. Weddings, job changes, poor economy, ect. I'd keep checking back late. Come spring time I'd bet there'll be some openings here and there. Good luck.

Good Park and decent lake, but probably better for bass than walleyes right now. Also decent panfishing. A couple of main areas to fish that you can see on the lake map.

We will be tenting, w/no electricity. Still have to res. a year in advance? From what i seen on the web, they had plenty of tent sites open yet. (I hope).

I've [PoorWordUsage] about that year in advance booking too and the answer is "we hope that people will check out some of the other hidden gem state parks" if they can't get into the one they want.

mnhunter79,

I checked on camper / electricity, not a tent / no elec. You're probably okay if that's what the site says. Good luck.

      We had a 19-1/2” that only weighed 1.85#

      yea I keep thinking of getting a different motor but runs good. its a 40 Johnson. I am happy with the boat itself and don't plan on a different one either.

      There are good panfish, both above and below Pillager dam. in Lake Placid, As the water warms, look for the milfoil beds on the north side of the river to establish itself.  If the edges as well as the deeper water adjacent to the weeds.  I like to fan cast a split shot rig vs. a bobber set up. Below the dam, in summer panfish can be caught directly below the dam as well as near Cty 1 Bridge and along most of the inside turns of the river east of there. There are some nice sized panfish in the system, please let the bigger ones back.

      Anyone ever fish this lake before? Looks like it could be a good early season lake. Where exactly is the access? Is it a marked road? Pay box or do I have to go to the house and bother the guy? Appears the river might be too high to fish next weekend, so it’d be nice to find a little solitude on a nearby lake over the holiday weekend.

      I was the one with the 26-1/2" fish yesterday that weighed 5.15 #s. Was a skinny spawned out walleye!  Catch her again in 2/3 weeks and she will be 6/7 lbs for sure! 
    • JerkinLips
      I'm sure that the 5.15 pound walleye was a skinny 26" fish.  The regulations book lists a 20" at 2.7 pounds and a 26" at 6.2 pounds.

      Believe it or not it's a 1993 1660 ProV with a 2 stroke Pro 60 Yamaha. Still runs like a champ. I'm starting to get to the age that it doesn't pay to get a new one. It's always stored in the garage unless we're on a trip.

      Must have been a tough day of fishing with a couple hundred good fishermen catching only an handful of fish over 5#.   I'm puzzled by the fish weighing 5.15# and and 5.81#.  Seems too heavy for a 20" fish and too light for a 26" fish.  The chart I use suggests a 20" walleye weighs 3.12# and a 26" walleye weighs 7.18#.  Of course there is huge variation around this prediction chart.  Wonder if these were these long skinny fish or short chunky fish?   Thanks for posting the results bb and congrats on 10th place.
