Comments:

Fishing on this lake is limited by competition with recreational boaters. Runabout use and water skiing are very popular here. Ice anglers often gain access to this lake in the winter by driving across the beach. Winter anglers should use caution when traveling on this lake as it has a history of maintaining open water areas during much of the winter.
