Only fished it twice but found kastys worked well.Also thomas bouyants.I fished from the the parking area west of the dam towards the inlet.T he lake is full so it could be tougher walking.Good luck-

I fished it early april when the water was still freezing and didn't have any luck. I was going to go last sunday but didn't feel like getting up at 4:00a.m. and going by myself so I went nightfishing the previous night instead. I think that I will go next week for sure. Some advice: wear comfortable shoes and prepare to hike, so pack light. Don't forget to post a report even if it's bad!!! That place had some monster fish I have heard. It has bows, macs, kokes, and muskie. The next state record muskie IMO but don't catch it unless you're gonna release it so I can catch it. :D Also, just in case you didn't know, you can now take hand launched boats excluding bellyboats and rubber rafts. No wading either. Good Luck!!!!

On previous posts, someone said it is about a two hour hike to the inlet. You can rent a boat though which will save you a lot of time. Does anyone know if Gross has a nice population of Kokanee?

Burn-n-Daylight..

Boy what a trip I had a while ago. The fish well i dont know I only caught a small little rainbow. Ive heard about the huge MUSKIES that are in there but didnt manage any on my trip awhile ago. The inlet .. A WALK .. If you like to hike.. You can bring only hand propelled crafts out. Ive tried shiners, power bait- Green/orange/rainbow. Night crawlers. Buzz baits . Rapalas . tube jigs . bubble and flies . castmasters . spoons ratltraps name it .. all that i brought i used... And nothing. Guys out on crafts were using tubes and little flies and was just twitching it from their crafts and seem to be getting more action then from shore. Its very deep..! I think it was the south side that i parked at and then walked westward towards the inlet. Its a walk though man and the RES.. very pretty and deep..!
