    Default Seymore Lake

    I gave Seymor Lake a try today. We got skunked but it was still very fun.

    My 5 year old daughter is really getting the hang of using a spinning rod.

    I was looking for Visnaw lake but could not find it.

    I tried Seymour once years ago and got skunked too.
    But I know of others who have done very well.
    I have heard, but it is subject to verification, that it can winter kill.
    Did you see fish?

    I like slow trolling a tiny diving plug in the Valley lakes. It is not as much fun for the kids who like to cast, though.

    Had my wife and kids (age 3 and 4) out on Finger on Tues. and we caught a few small 'bows.

    Good cheap family fun, that canoe is. And uses no gasoline .

    There were 3 or 4 other boats out on the lake.

    I talked with a man who said that a friend of his had been catching fish there lately.

    I had my daughter casting rapalas and flatfish. They work well on large trout and dont get tangled up on the bottom since they float.

    Hmmm, must have been one of those days, those plugs should have worked great.

    Bait is the way to go. Shrimp or Power bait. Fish in 15 to 20 feet of water. That is where the fish are, and there are only a half dozen holes in the lake that deep. You can catch all you can deal with on bait.

    You couldn't find Visnaw? It is right across the road from where the access is to Seymore.

    I was frustrated that when I came up on Seymore I was saying "that I dont care what lake this is I am fishing here". So I was looking out the right side of the road. If I would have looked left I would have seen the road to Visnaw.

    The only sign I saw about Visnaw lake is the one right at the gas station from there on it is unmarked. Except for a single sign that said Seymore lake on it a couple turns from the first sign.

    Default Visnaw Lake

    Don't bother with Visnaw Lake, we live on Visnaw and last winter the trout all died off. ADF&G promised to stock this spring, but it will be a couple of years before it's worth fishing again. On the bright side, it took eagles and sea gulls a week to clean all of the dead fish out of the lake. What a ruckus!

    Hmm, I trolled Visnaw the other day and my fish finder saw quite a few fish..... but I didn't catch any.
