We had our first group of guests in to Brown Bear lake this past week. They had a great time and caught a very nice 38″ lake trout, some 20″ smallmouth bass and various sizes of walleyes. The bass were up very shallow and we figure that they are staging before the spawn.
The ice on the lakes did go out very early this year and so they have warmed up quite a bit. Brown Bear lake was pretty high with some of the rain we’ve had but has since gone back almost to normal levels.
I’ll be posting pictures as soon as I can get them.
