Mill Lake

wmn luv me walleye fearme

I was thinking about going up there in mid september with a couple of my friends that are coming up from ohio and staying at mill lake resort. Was just looking to hear if its a pretty good lake and if that should be a good time to hit it as well? Also if anyone has stayed at Mill Lake Resort let me know if its decent. Was thinking about going to that lake because its only 650 acres and hopefully manageable with a couple days fishing. (last time I went to alexandria for a couple days I went to IDA which was to **** big for me to get a clue in a 3 day fishing trip.)
Thanks

fearme...Mill lake is a great lake. Easily learned in three days...(unlike your experience on Ida!)...scroll down and check some of the other Mill lake posts for some earlier reports.
There were a lot of boats out there on sunday...could be chasin' crappies....the Chain has got a fair crappie bite going right now, and area lakes have cooled off a bit after rains and cooler nights...

good luck and good fishing!

We stayed at Mill Lake Resort for the first time Early June. Fishing was good for crappies mainly. The resort is pretty decent. Cabins were nice/clean and roomy. Its nice having your own dock by cabin. There is about 2 dozen RVS parked there so I would imagine it get a little crowded during the middle of summer. Good Luck

My luck on Mill has always been with cranks, (#11 rapalas, blue and perch mainly) evenings slow front trolling long lining in 6-12 ft look for the weed edges. depending on the cloouds and wind it works during the day also. Mill is a great little lake, my wife would go troll with me and if she got tired of it, it wasn't too far back to camp. Best of Luck!

As far as a fishing report did pretty crappy on mill, caught lots of small pike and some bass but not a walleye in site, (caught a couple out on Mary on Monday but that was all) The guy that runs Sun Valley Resort was about the most cranky resort owner i've ever seen, his wife was extremely nice but maybe he was just having a bad week.

I second that. We stayed there in August 2001. Lori was fantastic. She took great care of the kids.
We hit a hot spell temps in the upper 90's. Water clarity about 1', green. I asked him for some tips. He said troll the weed edges. Couldnt tell where the edge was in the rental boat without a fish finder. Boat ran terrible, wouldnt plane out. He was of no use. I got a 84' Johnson 10hp that would run circles around the 15hp merc.
