Fishing

Fish Trap Lake has always been known for its great fishing with walleye, crappie, and large mouth bass its most abundant species. Walleyes are stocked by the Department of Natural Resources yearly, average size being two pounds and five to six pounds being very common.

Bass in the four pound class are common with some six plus pounders caught each year. The Crappie population is very healthy on Fish Trap as well, with frequent catches of 1.5 to 2 pound fish found in a net with a full limit. Northern Pike are easily found by trolling or by casting with spoons; a successful slot limit on northerns has raised their overall size over the last three years.  If you want advice on where and how to fish for any species, we can point you in the right direction!  Fishing guide services are available in the area, as well
