Heard several people saying the fish are fairly consistent here. I tried it a couple weekends ago, the lovely Sunday with 50 mile an hour winds and didn't see anything/nor catch anything.

What part of the lake and what times have there been activity? Bait, etc.

Only been out there that one time.

I've done most of my fishing after dark, but places that have been good in the dark have also usually been good in the morning and evening.

City park in 12 feet has been solid, but don't expect a limit. Memorial point has been about as good, fish about 200 yards off the point. I've tried the Sandy Shore area and didn't catch anything. In the past, though I haven't fished it yet this winter, the area off of Kampeska Lodge has been good. Find the humps.

Bait: If you use regular minnows, you'll have little fish annoying you fairly regularly. Try shiners, chubs, or suckers on at least a few of your lines. Two minnows on one hook usually outfishes one minnow 4 to 1.

Good luck!

Thanks for the post. I'm not really familiar with the lake at all, so where are these places in relation to the HWY?

The one time I was out there, I took the access from the S/E side I believe, just up to the left off the HWY.

Kampeska has several places to access the lake. If you're going out of City Park, the access is just off Highway 20 as you're heading toward Wallace. If you head farther west, there is another access just off Highway 20. There are several other places to get on the lake. One is at Kampeska Lodge, if the there are no heaves there this year. Check with the Proud Angler bait shop (Highway 20) or River City on Highway 212 and they'll help you out. While you're there, check out Pelican on the west end and see if you can find those fish.

City Park is a good place to go on. There's a pretty bad snowdrift in front of the boatlanding, but look about 20 feet south of the ramp and you can drive right down the beach, its totally clear of snow.

The access areas on the north side of the lake are a no-go because of heaves. This includes Kampeska Lodge and the sailboat landing.

Memorial Park, on the west side of the lake, is ok to go on, but a little bumpy.

Sandy Shore, on the south end, is great to drive on.

Stay away from the major point on the east side and the rockpile, which is near there. There are springs in this area and people often go through. Get a map and ask someone at a baitsop to show you where not to go. You'll also find the access spots much easier with a map.

This info is from 1/27/07.

    • Luxury RV camping has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to enjoy the great outdoors while still enjoying the comforts of home. With the right equipment and preparation, luxury RV camping can be a truly unforgettable experience. In this essay, we will provide you with the ultimate guide to luxury RV camping, including tips on choosing the right RV, selecting the best campsite, and packing for your trip.   The first step to planning a luxury RV camping trip is to choose the right RV. There are a variety of different types of RVs available, ranging from small and compact trailers to large and luxurious motorhomes. The right RV for you will depend on your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   One popular option for luxury RV camping is a Class A motorhome. These motorhomes are typically the largest and most luxurious RVs available, with spacious interiors, full kitchens, and even multiple bathrooms. They often come equipped with high-end features such as leather upholstery, flat-screen televisions, and high-quality audio systems. Class A motorhomes are also the most expensive type of RV, but they offer the ultimate in comfort and luxury.   Another popular option for luxury RV camping is a fifth wheel trailer. These trailers are typically larger than travel trailers and are designed to be towed by a pickup truck. They offer many of the same amenities as Class A motorhomes, including full kitchens, multiple bathrooms, and high-end features such as surround sound systems and flat-screen televisions. Fifth wheel trailers are often less expensive than Class A motorhomes but still offer a high level of comfort and luxury.   Once you have chosen the right RV for your luxury camping trip, the next step is to select the perfect campsite. There are a variety of different types of campsites available, ranging from basic, no-frills campsites to high-end RV resorts with all the amenities. When selecting a campsite, it is important to consider your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   If you are looking for a truly luxurious camping experience, consider staying at an RV resort. These resorts often offer a wide range of amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and even golf courses. They also typically offer high-end services such as concierge service, valet parking, and room service. RV resorts can be expensive, but they offer the ultimate in luxury and comfort.   If you are looking for a more affordable camping experience, consider staying at a state or national park. These parks offer a variety of different campsites, ranging from basic tent sites to RV sites with electrical and water hookups. While state and national parks may not offer the same level of luxury as RV resorts, they do offer the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors.     Once you have chosen the perfect RV and campsite, the final step is to pack for your luxury camping trip. When packing for a luxury RV camping trip, it is important to focus on comfort and convenience. Pack clothing that is appropriate for the weather and activities you have planned, as well as comfortable shoes for hiking and exploring.   In addition to clothing, it is important to pack all the essentials you will need for your trip. This includes bedding, towels, toiletries, and any medications or other personal items you may need. It is also important to pack food and drinks, as well as any cooking supplies you will need for meals. If you are camping in the cold weather, bring the Ocoopa Union 5s rechargeable hand warmers are easy to use for camping. First, charge it, then turn it on, and finally, place it in your gloves or pockets. Additionally, the rechargeable hand warmer has 4 heat settings, allowing you to adjust the temperature to various weather conditions. With a large 10000mAh battery, it can provide up to 15 hours of heat and could use as a power bank, making it an ideal hand warmer for extended outdoor activities.   Finally, when packing for your luxury RV camping trip, don’t forget to pack entertainment options such as books, movies, and games. While luxury camping offers many opportunities for relaxation and outdoor activities, it is also important to have options for downtime and relaxation.
