    Default Summit Lake

    You need to be more specific as to which Summit Lake you are referring too. We are assuming you mean the Summit Lake near Paxon?

    Sorry guys, I definitely meant Summit Lake near Paxson. I guess I should throw in Fielding Lake down there as well. Suggestions for either one? They are just so darn big its a bit difficult to figure out where to start....

    Summit is an OK lake......very high and cold but lots of feed. Don't expect anything big.

    For ice fishing, I prefer Paxon over Summit, but I don't have a snow machine. Fishing the points just off the Rich on the north end of the lake have always produced fish for us.

    summit is just like a lot of high an cold lakes takes a long time for the fishto grow to a size to keep [ what I want to keep ] I think Paxton will produce better fish than Summit [ better food ] not that it is better it is just that I like it better [ personal ]

    it was good at that time when i rolled through in midaugust on a long haul, i jumped out for about a half hour with the spin rod and there were quite a few grayling congregating near the highway and i was able to pick up a few on small spinners. i was stoked cause in other places i have fished for grayling i have found that they do not like to bite anything
