I got out there for a couple hours this afternoon, no bites, not much time spent though. Probably 5-6" of ice though, pretty solid!

Fish lake. Sits on the east side of Grand lake. If you are heading north out of Fall River , through Wellington and Grand lake station, you will come to the Oakfield Park Rd on the left - drive about 500 M and it is right there on the left.

I thought they left it there on the right...

Sorry - just coming off my Boxing Day snooze - yes the lake would be on the right when travelling along Oakfield Park Rd.

If anyone will be near Fish Lake in the next few days, could you give us a quick report on the ice conditions?  We had a lot of rain yesterday and high temps.  I am wondering if the ice will be good for Saturday.

I haven't fished this spot much. I do most of my pickerel fishing in Kinsac. The few times I have fished it was near the culvert that runs out of it about halfway up the lake on the grand lake side. I've caught fish there but I am looking to find other areas of the lake that produce fish. I may get out this weekend for some ice fishing. Can anyone out there point me in the right direction? If you don't want to publicly display it pm me. I'm willing to trade spots for Kinsac lol
