October 2nd, 2018 - Chilkoot Lake
Report By : Guest Fishing Rating : 1 Water Temperature : 20
I have lived in the area for 23 years and have been to the lake. To the best of my knowledge there are no fish in the lake. Chilkoot is very shallow and completely freezes during winter, not just the top few inches, but all the way to the bottom.

Great little lake for Laremouth Bass that produces all day. The lake is generally placid in the morning but afternoon breezes tend to kick up some waves. Water is fairly clear to about 5 ft. Lot's of structure in the lake i.e. fallen timber and submerged stumps. Great locations for fish but be prepared to lose some tackle. Also a good amount of reeds and top water vegetation provide holding spots for fish. The lake is dotted with coves that hold fish as well. There are a lot of Bass in this lake. Not uncommon to see juvenile Bass schooled up in the shallows or holding in structure. Plenty of good size fish as well. The 3 Lbs range has been pretty common lately but these fish put up a great fight and are a lot of fun. Noticed they were hit on plastics that were green. Prosenko's and Strike King Shimmie Sticks on drop shot worked very well. Downsides: The park doesn't open until 7:00 AM. Would be nice to get out an hour sooner. Also, you can't just show up with your own boat. Boats are required to be inspected and quarantined for a period of time before use on the lake. Only electric motors are allowed on the lake. Boats (with motors) are available for rent however it's first come first served . Boats can be reserved for an all day charge of $90. I would highly recommend fishing this lake. You have to seek out the fish but the catch is well worth it. Remember to fish responsibly and practice catch and release.

The lake is full and should be stocked with rainbow trout this week. Haven't gotten a chance to fish yet, though.

The lake was due for stocking in november, but the pump was being fixed. The pump is fixed and the water level is rising. The lake will be stocked when it is full of water. That will probably be by the end of February. Not really anything to catch at this time however.
