    How thick was the ice? I have that park as an Adopt-a-Park and like to get over there when the ice starts breaking away to clean up in the shallow water. Unreal what people throw in there!

    Yup,,those are our slob fisherman.Outta sight outta mind.Why carry it out when you can just drop in lake and watch it sink. Ive seen my share of beer bottles on the lake bottom while staring down thru my ice hole.

    I put my drift boat in every spring and can fill several garbage bags with stuff I can get to with a 3 foot "grabber" while leaning over the side. I can imagine what is in the rest of the lake we can't see or get to without diving gear. What is just as bad, is the people that bring their dogs down there just to poop around the lake and leave. I once had a lady let her dog out of the car to "do it's thing" and I asked her to be sure she cleaned it up. I had a shovel and hoe in my hand as I was picking up lot's of other piles, and she told me "that's what you get paid for"! Of course I let her know there is a leash law and I am a volunteer. She left in a huff without picking it up. Too RUDE!

    Default No luck for me there today

    I fished Sand lake for 3 hours this morning, then campbell for another two. Never got one fish. Used all kinds of bait and spoons. I have never been skunked on these lakes in 5 years of fishing them.

    How on earth can someone confuse Char with Landlocked salmon? Char have light spots, salmon have black ones...
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    I cought one of those big chars last thursday on a pixie. The ice was 4/5 gone then and should be gone now.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    I still knew to the area even though I've been here almost 2 years. Where exactly is Campbell Point Lake. Is it Campbell Lake on the map? I haven't fished any lakes around town yet. Which ones are the best for fishing from the shore? All help is appreciated, thanks.

    Default another lake to try

    Is delong lake. It is right by the airport on Jewel lake road. I like to go there early in the am and fish off the docks. I just soak and egg on the bottom with my ultra light gear. I have had much success doing that early in the season before the weeds get so thick on the bottom. I have caught char a bows there up to from 6" to 22". If the dock is occupied just sit on the shore to the right of the dock as your looking at the lake and cast about 15 feet to the right of the dock.
