Haven't fished Dixon personally...had a couple of guests who fished it over the past summer and did alright.

Anybody have some pointers for Justin32?

Dixon is closer to Squaw Lake. FYI, it's a township owned carry-in access on the northwest shore of the south basin. It is a poor access with no parking

there is a resort with a good access but they might not let you use it unless you are staying at the resort. but it dont hurt to ask.

I launched my boat at the resort maybe 10 years ago. We did not stay there and they charged us $5 I think. Didn't catch any fish but it was a late spring and we hoped Dixon had warmed up more than Winnie.

I have had a summer place on dixon for a few years. There is a 17-26 protected slot which has made catching and releasing very productive. The lake is relatively small and provides only a couple spots for structure- many fish the weedlines in summer.There is no public access- the only access is thru the resort. I have caught crappies to 14 inches and perch that were 13 with relative regularity during the prime times for them-not to say you could not find them at other times. Many of the resort people opt for winnie or other lakes. I have had success on winnie, but the access is in the 3rd river flowage and a 3 mile boat ride out to the lake and can be very weed choked in midsummer. So I usually stick to dixon and have good success. Fathead minnows seem to outperform everything else on this lake- shiners, leeches, nightcrawlers I have tried, but a fathead is the ticket usually.

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
