I caught the fish along the north side towards the inlet . The fish are cruising shallow. I was flyfishing but a bubble would work fine also. try around a size 14 halfback. good luck

I've had good luck there with a size 12-14 olive scud under a bobber...errrrrrrrr strike indicator...letting the waves do the work with a spinning rod...I wonder if the road into Long Draw Reservoir is open?

It is a good place...and you can usually have it all to yourself...some good cuts in there too...Grayling have soft mouths...so go easy on the hookset or you will just reel in a pair of lips without the fish attached!

We ice fished it this year and caught bo's,cutts,grayling and a small tiger muskie.Nothing over 13" except the tiger(16").Remember that the DOW stocked 50 brood lakers between 10 and 17 lbs. back in the fall!They've got to be still in there!

Not this past winter.I used to catch quite a few of them through the ice,it wasnt unusual to catch 5 or 6 hammer handles a day with prolly 3 or 4 @28 inches or better over the season.The last couple years it has really slowed down for pike for me anyway.
