    Has anyone fished Toronto lake? It's only 35 miles from the house and I thought I would try fishing it this year. Any information would help.

    Their are some hog channel cat in shallows and on the backside of that island out in the lake. I don't know if you are familiar with the lake. I use to camp down their when I was a kid and caught fish from shore and now I fish if from a boat but the lake is about 60 miles and I've got some pretty good spots in my area. I can't remember the creek that runs in to it but on a raise I have a buddy that does real well. There's quite a bit of timber to fish around too.

    What are the roads around the lake like? I thought about heading down there Saturday to scout around and didn't want to get stuck. This ice is supposed to melt tomorrow.

    Have not personally ben there but guys I work with have and there are some monster crappie in there at least. my good friend caught a 16 1/4 inch crappie last fall out there. I heard it's got a little of everything timber, rock, deep, shallow. I heard it's perfect. They've also got some cabins you can rent now on the lake. could be worth checkin out.

    It has been a long time since i have been there back when i was about 15. Altough i do remember there are some nice flats in that lake and alot of nice channels. The biggist we caught was a 30lber up in the river. I remember getting to the river off of 54 highway. Sorry i can tell you for sure what road it was on though. I do remember catching alot of fish. We mainly were running trot lines but we did get a few on poles. I havent been to the lake part at all. We were mainly on the river or very n end of the lake.Like it was mentioned before there are cabins you can rent on the lake. A friend of mine had a family get together at the lake and they rented cabins. Hope this helps you out. I do know that it is pretty close to fall river also.

    I haven't done any catfishing at Toronto yet. But if your into crappie fishing Mann's Cove is one of the best, caught crappie over the 3 lb. mark in Mann's. And where the crappie are feeding you will find big channels feeding on the crappie in the early spring time.

    When I was a kid, probably like 25 years ago, my dad used to take me to Toronto to fish for flats and channel cats. We mostly fished behind he damn and seem to always catch fish. I know this may not help much, but it was a nice memory fishing with my dad! Good Luck :big_smile:
