Pleasant Lake-Deerfield
« on: Jan 21, 2009, 08:52 AM »
Anyone have some general updates from Pleasant Lake in Deerfield.  Is the boat launch area parking lot plowed for access?

Thanks

The parking lot is typically plowed.  I don't know the ice conditions, but people have been fishing for rainbows out there for a while.  I hope this helps.


Sure does, thanks.

I just got in from fishing pleasant lake, and i have never seen the fishing better, the ice is over 12" thick and 12" of snow on top of that. If you go, fish as far from the ramp as you can, I don't know why everyone fishes there!

Thanks for the reply.  Since you mention getting as far away from the ramp as possible, A.) is there other access points, or B). are folks driving their vehicles on the lake (that is if it's legal here).

Thanks again.

 You can drive on the lake, but the snow is deep, plenty of ice it is 13 degrees out as i type, it's getting thick.

I also live by Pleasant, the reason he says this is because typically everyone and there brother crowds the ramp area (most likely because its close to the parking lot) but there are fish through-out the lake.

Fishing at the ramp is a good spot if you don't want to go far and the parking is good, your right. I live down the other end of the lake.

 Any more reports for Pleasant lake. I live four miles away and have never fished it. I was actually surprised when I found out the State F&G was stocking it with trout back a few years ago. I alway's thought it was a smallmouth body of water, guess I was wrong.
  I quess the old rumor is true the fishing is always better at somebody elses place!. Looks like I'm going to have a long walk, I was going to try over by the point near the cove at the east side of the pond. Anyother spot's that might hold promise?   ???

Any bait of chose you recommend, I live in Epsom and the closest place I can think for bait Friday morning is Alton Circle, the guy in Northwood doesn't open until 3 pm. I was also recommend to used salmon egg clusters. I'm pretty open mined so I thought I'd try them. Never caught anything with salmon eggs before though.
 Planning on walking across the lake to a feeder brook near the cove. The ride to Alton should give the morning time to warm up a degree or two, wishful thinking!

 I thought he closed up shop last summer? He must like keeping bait around for his own personnel use so they sell some also. I have to admit if he's open it's appreciated, not many places doing it any more.

The kayak shop on rte #4  across the street from Northwood Lake, also sell's bait but not much else. Oh he's got a couple of tipups and a little bit of gear but no eye candy. Still he's close. He opens on the weekends at 6am and during the week at 3 pm. He's keeping his bait cold so I recommend him if you needed any bait.

 I'd think all that snow would slow you down alot. Theres alot of snow mobile trails but not like a major trail. You'd have to pick way way for sure.

I hear you I fished Country Pond derby last week and it was a total slush out and the 4 wheeler did not like it. It was the first time I heard my cooling fan come on.
Real tough going.
Guess we will have to walk it out to the ice

 I haven't been able to get yet this weekend but first thing tomorrow morning I'll get it a go. We're finally getting a good window of weather. I'm not crazy about the cold, my bucket doesn't provide me much protection!
