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.

    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!
    • Did 20 qts of pickles last Monday, another 1/2 bushel tomorrow!!
    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.
    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!

    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
