it used to be a great lake, haven't fished on it in years. they had a dam failure that was fixed about 2 years ago (i'm old so and thats what i remember anyway. probably 5-600 acres. it was restocked with panfish and largemouth bass about this time last year, so should be some good fish by now.

The wind every damn weekend is getting ridiculous. I won't be fishing this trip, just a test run to see if my seat is too high and/or the boat is too heavy. I have potential to look like a douchebag with the wind blowing me all over the place if this doesn't work as planned.

Didn't realize it was full again. It's got a little park there where you can launch. It's a tiny thing but should be nice. And I doubt it's got many people on it. Like they've said already most folks don't know about it.
I understand you may still be catching fish out there, hell, I caught the one picture below in February.
I'm referring to the native grasses that have been poisoned. You know? The base of the ecological food pyramid in the lake? Now that they've crashed that, the rest will fall into place... it's science.
