I didn't fish it last year, but the year before it was the same.
It's an absolutley beautiful lake, There MUST be some real nice fish in there. I think because of the launch situation it does't get much action. That camp ground has a pretty good thing going, being the only game in town it can pretty much regulate the fishing pressure. Hard to believe F&G manages it for salmon with limeted access like that!!!! Bet the property owners and the camp ground love it.
I've caught some beutiful salmon out of there, but many a day been skunked also.
Yes no access until the gate keepers at the campground wake up. So don't expect to get the early bite unless you camp there. Also very little parking near the launch and a hefty climb up the road to the upper parking area.
F&G manage it more for brookies. Stocking brookies in 2008 they put in 2,700 1yr, 200 2yr, and 30,000 fingerlings (probably to feed the lakers). They only put in 300 1 yr old salmon.
The water is absolutely clear and I've recorded 133' as the deepest.
Have you ever driven the road that loops around above, over looking the lake?
Is there a launch fee at
Big Dan Hole ?
that pond brings back bad memories my dad almost drowned there back in the late 60,s 4 of his buddies went trout fishing there in a square bottom alum boat next thing the boat was sinking and my dad could not swim his best friend saved him when i saw that post big dan hole it brought back memories it was great trout fishing back then
Dan hole can also get very rough in a hurry.
