Has anyone ever fished Artist Lake? Is there good fishing there? What time of year is best? Are good fishing spots easy to get to from the Park there? Should I bring waders? What is the best fish to target? And what is the best part of the lake to start fishing at? Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I live close by and used to fish there quite a bit. You can fish the shore from most of the north & west side. There are some nice bass and pickerel as well as some crappies. You can wade anyplace on the west side of in lake. It's not too deep but there is a lot of mud and trash on the bottom. Most people cast from the shore. I have a small canoe.
The end of April and beginning of May seem to be most productive.

Just a reminder that during April and May… The Largemouth and Pickerel season is closed. Also… Caution: Wading from on the Western portion of the pond is very dangerous. The mud is incredibly soft and if you take two steps forward… expect to be sucked down to your waist (I should know because yours truly experienced the mishaps). However, the North side of the lake (parking area) is fishy and wadeable.

Also - If you are planning to fish the North side of the parking zone... Make sure you fish it early (first light) before the boaters! You will find that most of the fish will be within the 50 - 75ft. next to the drop-off and by the hydrelian weeds.

Good fishing!

Thanks, I was planning on going real early, maybe a week day. Hopefully I will have the oppurtunity to make it out there by mid month. I would like to check the lake out. Hopefully, get to know it so I can be somewhat dialed in as the lake becomes more productive and I have more free time. I am looking foward to fishing there, and all your info will be of a great help. Thanks again. THEO

PS. When I do go I will be sure to post a report either here or on the posted reports. Let you know how I did.
