Bad Medicine Lake

2 posts in this topic

Anyone ever fish this lake? We went down there last year because we heard of the great bite but we only got small 1 pound trout if that. Not many at that . We stayed at a very nice camp ground(not sure I can say the name here) but we loved the trip because of the great place we stayed.We want to go back. mostly because of the camp ground. Wouldn't mind an excuse to go back but we just couldn't get into the big trout that we were told about.What do they bite on down there? Fishing??????? for Info.LOL thanks

THAT'S why you didn't catch any large fish. that lake has been pounded hard over the last several years with word of a "hot bite". More harvest going on than fish coming in, with a lot of large fish going home in the cooler. Only one way to get big fish in a put and take fishery, and that's to leave some go.

The lake is beautiful and I can understand why anyone would want to fish it. I'd say to come back again, but not expect to catch any large trout. However, there are some great walleyes and large pike to be caught (fat from eating all the small trout). There is also a blossoming smallmouth fishery there.

It's hard to keep a good bite a secret anymore.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
