I was wondering about this myself. I came across a site looking for the information and it said labor day through memorial day but im not sure how reliable that is. Id imagine the snow isnt a problem but they have to open the gate. Aside from the lake opening, does anyone know if there are lake trout in spaulding? i have come across a couple sources that say there are and some that say there arent... Anyone ever caught one there? Ive only landed rainbows and kings, and i know there are browns but id sure love to have a lake close by that i can get some mack fishing in and not have to drive very far. wishful thinking im sure...

I dont think you will find any Macks. Browns and Bows for sure, they are great early in the season there from what i have read. It is full of panfish like bluegill as well in the summer.

Now matter the weather it usually doen't open until the week before Memorial weekend. So its just a matter of waiting til then! Our tax dollars paid for that ramp but they act like it's theirs!!! :frakenstien:

Never got any of those, but the lake does have monster sqawfish! I've seen a few over 10#s come out there. I unfortunatly have been seeing a increase in smallies too. Both those fish put a dent on the trout fishery which isn't that great to begin with, because it does not get planted with trout. Some guys used to hold derbys there too, which I beleive hurt the trout fishery as well. :-(

Lots of bluegill that's for sure. I have been catching them since I was a cub scout haha

Still havent caught one of those in 23 years of fishing this area. I almost want to target them for awhile.
