The lake will still be pretty cold. Go north, up the north arm, and into Little Trout is you are bringing a canoe. Try around the little island west of the mouth of the entrance to the north arm, and again up and down the north arm itself. The north shore of Soux Pine Island is good as well. With your permit you should be able to get a map of campsites. It will be hit your miss with the eyes but it's such a pretty lake you'll enjoy the search.

I'd love an update of how you did, water temp, etc. when you get back.

Good luck and have fun!

I'm going up myself with a group on June 10th. Water temp should not be much above 60 degrees right now. I was on Vermilion memorial day and the surface temp was 53 degrees according to my depth finder.

Speed trolling with crank baits up by Oriniack portage can produce this time of year. Area around Pine Creek with spinners and minnows can also be good. Walleyes on Trout will be hit and miss. Go deep after about 10 AM. North arm with crank baits can be a blast for pike and smallmouth.

I've been going up there since I was 12 and that is a long time ago. I'm from Virginia originally. Look for the campsite with kegs of summit and you will be offered a cold one.(cold plate and CO2 in camp)

Good luck!

Dang Fisher King, that sounds mighty fine! We go in the 19th, we'll have our customary 10 cases of plastic bottled beers and be fry'in up eyes all week. Please give an update when you come out.

We have a few cases of plastic bottles as backup for when the kegs run dry. Always can pack them out if they are not consumed and used for the next trip. Also easier to take out into the boat. Hopefully the eyes are biting and we have to wait until we get to camp. grin.gif

I'll be sure to log on and let you know how we do. I'm hoping others do so over the next week so we have the same info going into our trip. cool.gif

Ive always had luck with a blue/white/yellow silver willow leaf spinner bait, for smallmouth. Fish leeches no matter what anyone else says.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Any reports out of Trout Lake would be welcomed. Water temp, good bite, bad bite, locations, etc. We go in this Sunday for a week.

Thanks in advance!

Just got back from Trout Lake. We were up from Friday through Tuesday. Weather was not the best with rain every day and changing wind directions. Don't know what the water temp was but it was cold bathing!

Fished Big Trout and most of the luck we had was on the north end. Caught several nice sized fish around 20-30 feet of water using leeches and a bare hook/lindy rig. Minnows were not nearly as effective. Trolled with crankbaits as well and caught some nice pike.

Ran into some folks who fished Little trout and they told us they had some luck in there as well. Didn't catch much in shallow water at all.

Good luck. smile.gif

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
