    Default Seymour Lake

    I tried Ice Fishing this lake today with no success. TSS and I fished it for about 2 hours before he had to drive back to North Pole. We tried in several spots several hundred yards from the public access point. Anyone ever have any luck from this place? I've heard it is a hotspot in the spring from a float tube, but we didn't even see anything on the Aquaview.

    Thumbs up

    Normally it produces larger rainbows than the lakes around it. I have caught several over 25" out of there. There are few deep spots about 18' deep that I focused on. Try going out of the public access slot and fish center of the lake, slightly to the right. Deep hole right there.

    I've never had any real success out of Seymour, but I have seen pics of bows from that lake that would fool you for a silver.

    I'd fish small lures right now, fish are very finicky.

    There are only two time to fish this lake on ice. When it is so thin most wont walk on it and when it is so rotted no one will go. Cant say that I have fished it a lot but people that i know that do good only catch fish the end of April when most wont go out and first ice up. I was shown a photo of a bow that was darn close to 30 inches he said he caught it the end of April he said that he does just as good at ice up

    I agree w/ Dave. Hands down the best time for ice fishing rainbows is 1st ice when you really shouldn't be out there yet. Having fallen through ice before I personally don't like to venture out on it until it gets 6". Generally the rainbow fishing seems to take a nosedive in dec esp. after temps drop and lack of daylight. During february I try to concentrate on lakes that have deeper water and target other species that feed more actively during mid winter (char,landlocked salmon) If I do catch any bows I consider it a bonus. Seymour is known for big rainbows and as a result gets more pressure. There are other lakes in the area that can be just as good if a person is willing to do some exploration.

    Big problem with those Meadow lakes area lakes is there is alot of food in those lakes for the fish. So while they make get really big, they don't readily bite all the time.

    I couldn't agree more though, first of November with about 8" of ice is THE best time.

    Fished this lake again yesterday with no results. We tried towards the middle and along the shore in a few feet of water...NADA!

    We had the camera in tow and didn't even see one on it, I wonder where they all go?

    One other thing Seymour is famous for is winter kill, due to oxygen deprivation. This is the time of year when O2 is lowest, so the fish even if still alive are very lethargic. Keep on trying it though, keeps pressure off the other lakes.

    I do all my specific Rainbow fishing as early as the ice will allow me. There is no better time of winter to be fishing for them. They'll bite just about anything in any size. But after a few weeks the fishing really goes downhill.
