Trego Lake Fishing Reports

6 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. New to the forums (but long time lurker). I recently bought a travel trailer on a seasonal site at Trego Lake. I been out on the lake a few times now and had pretty good luck this last weekend (a few large largemouths and some of the biggest yellow perch I have ever seen). I was wondering if anyone has any insight on this lake? Walleyes? Smallies? Pike? Crappies?

Thanks!

Thanks for the information. Anyone have any ideas or actually fished this lake? I have been knocking back quite a few bass and pike, but don't really know even where to begin for walleyes because the lake is kind of unique.

Pontooner, Ive had my place on Trego lake for 25 years now. Walleyes are pretty few and far between. But you're right, it's pretty unique (as in no thermocline). Bass (large and small) Northern, panfish, etc.are good. More smallies the last few years which is fine by me. I'm in a log cabin on the shallow wide south end. Stop by if you see me and we'll go for a tour of the lake. I'd be glad to show you a few spots. I fish out of light blue 17 Ft. w/ a Merc 70. If you see me, flag me down. I'm up most weekends. Where are you on the lake?

Fazer,

THanks for the invite. Wish I would have checked this back sooner. You are down where the river enters into the "lake"? I have caught quite a few large smallies by the first bouy when you enter that part of the lake. Also was just raking some fairly large perch this weekend in that spot. Pike seemed to disappear though. I also usually do real well in the "bay" where the old farm silo is buried in the water.

When you have targeted walleyes do you usually work the deeper channel by the cement dock where it gets real deep towards the dam?

Pontooner, Was wondering where you got off to.........Pike have been real slow last few weeks. What's this about a sunken silo?????????? Never heard that- guess you learn somethin every day. Walleye I've caught have either been in weeds 3 to 5ft deep or on humps and weedy dropoffs down in the deep end. The buoy you talked about is a great spot in the spring for crappies and a few eyes. Never caught much down by the dam- but there's a couple weedy flats down there that always seem to produce. I could go on & on....Look me up when you can. we should talk. I'll probably be there this weekend and will be there next weekend for sure.

Pontooner, I'm on the north side of the big bay about the widest point. There's a guy two doors west with a trailer on a small hill, and my brother in laws pontoon is up on shore next door to me. My place is a log cabin with an open porch on the front. I may be fishing a small lake not too far away for crappies Saturday.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
