Planning on hitting it up for the first time this weekend, mostly chasing musky and probably smallies for a bit. Just wondering what the water level is like, which ramp to hit and any navigation hazards we may encounter. Also does it fish more like a lake or more like a river?

Are you aware of the all the habitat improvements they did during the drawdown? I have some detailed maps of present and future rock piles, brush, trees, etc. Its mostly long and fairly narrow like a river but with a dam it fishes more like a lake. I know some nice fish came out of there last fall, don't have any reports from this year yet. Good luck. I'd bet there will be maps at the landings.

I have a map in my fishing hotspots book, but with my fish finder on the fritz and not knowing the difference in water level between when the map in the book was made and the current water level it made me a bit worried. Guess we'll just travel slow in any water less than 10 feet. No I'm not aware of any structure they added, but I plan on covering water quickly until some fish are found.

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
