Report: The OHV area has 13 waterfront sites and 3 at the back of those(16 Total). Outhouses-don't forget your toilet paper! The lake is crystal clear and loaded with crawdads-snack?
Conditions: Fishing was good, we had 2 dinners of lake trout and released some smaller rainbows. Weekday was quiet but the weekend got busy with jetskis, waterskiers, shreeking kids and took some time to adjust to the invasion. :)
