    I've never fished it, but I know several guys who have over the years. I haven't heard anything about it lately, but it was supposedly a good catfish lake in past years.

    thank you for your response :D

    Yeah, back when me and my uncle fished it it was really good. My wife, kids, my best friend and his wife and I, are going camping there next month. Free camping. And I'm just trying to find any reports. :D

    Think I'll look up Jasper DNR and see if I can find something that way...
