    Thanks for the heads up. Knik lake is right down the road from me. Wife says we're going out there Thursday (ice fishing fanatic she is).

    Default Knik Lake Derby, is it well stocked?

    Is the lake well stocked? Any idea what sized fish, what species, how many? Just wondering if it's worth the drive for the lil'ones.
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    The lake has loads of little fish to keep the kids busy, but about a month ago my brother, friends and I fished out there and he pulled out a 23" trout and one of the little guys that was with us pulled out a 19" trout a few minutes later. those are by far the biggest fish I've ever seen there. you catch alot that are half that size. But they are in there. I have pictures somewhere. I'm sure preed would like me to post them.
    see ya out there!

    Today was not my day as the fish in Knik Lake gave me the slip today.
