Ice Access to Lake Caroline

Recommended Posts

Is there any public land around Lake Caroline by Fairhaven? Looking to walk onto this lake this winter.

unless things have changed recently, the only way in is thru the clearwater river from Augusta and clearwater or if you can get permission from a land owner.

There is no public land, the closest thing to it is the mill dam. You might have a hard time getting permission from a land owner on this lake. The best luck with land owners I've found is when someone owns a house on one side of the road, and happens to own the land on the other side bordering the lake. It doesn't look like this is the case with Caroline. Not to many people will let you walk through their yard when they don't know you. I would think your very best bet would be to look for a snowmobile trail. I have no idea if one goes across the lake in the winter, but if it does, just follow it out.

Are you suggesting to trespass across someone's land just because there were already snowmobile tracks?

I'm suggesting to look for a snowmobile trail. It looks like one comes off the west end of clearwater, and might go right over Caroline.

That only works if you have a snowmobile. Crossing private land on a GIA trail is only legal on snowmobiles.

Thanks for the input. I figured it was all private. At least this keeps me from spending the gas money to drive 45 miles for a few crappies.

Hey workin' you think you can get me up to speed on the local bites from this year, being that I've been gone all summer and fall? Curious as to what lakes got hot.

Go buy 2-3 $20 gift cards to local gas station or restaurant. STop by a few houses that are close to where you want to fish and ask politely if they would care if you (Specify only you) could access the lake through their property, if they say no, say thanks and sorry to bother you. If they say yes, give them a gift card as thanks. Always make sure they feel appreciated and never leave a mess.

IN HS we did this for river fishing spots in Monticello. An elderly lady let us fish the river behind her house. (there was a nice eddy there) 2 falls in a row we raked the leaves for her, she did not ask us... we just helped her out. WE never left a single pop can or anything on the property and she would come down to check on our fishing progress sometimes. There are good people out there but they should be treated well as they do not have to let you have access. If you ask politely and represent yourself up front and honest you have a chance. IMO
