(I'm 62) 2) How thick does the ice get in winter? 3) Is the fishing mostly for Lake Trout?
Thanks in advance
1) I think you answered your own question. No they are not easy to pull by hand, specifically if there is a lot of snow on the ground. It is very helpful to have a snowmobile or something with a motor to pull it for you. You can still make it work without a snowmobile, but you'll definitely break a sweat.
2) Ice verys per year. Usually by the end of March the ice is about 20" thinck.
3) The most targeted fish in granby is the lake trout, but the lake also has kokanee, rainbow trout and brown trout.
