With this lake being one of the few lake trout lakes in the Ducks, anglers visit here early spring and late fall with intentions of hooking onto a nice laker. All species can be temperamental, but with some time, testing strategies and a little bit of luck anglers can enjoying some great lake trout, pike and walleye fishing. Reaching out to the local cottage owners is a great way to gather some angling insight.
