    Fish till ya drop.
    Then suck it up
    and fish the evening hatch.

    Forget it......fish Depression lake. Baker is a summer lake.

    I might be old,but I'm good

    Depression lake might be good but it needs to have water in it. Last time I was up there at this time of the year That lake didn't have any water in it except up by the dam. Jim

    On the way up to Baker you'll pass a small lake called Grandy lake, campsites and stuff, not to crowded but it's full of some real pretty cutts, also bass. Not a big lake shallow with weeds and trees and brush downed timber and the like. The campsites aren't well maintained so be prepared to pick up a lot of garbage left from crackheads. well it's not that bad. Nice thing about camping at Grandy is that it gets a lot less rain than the Baker lake sites.

    I'm not real sure, maybe 10-15 miles down the road. On the way to Baker you'll pass the turnoff to the lake and the campground. It's worth checking out. I think Baker would probably too cold for good fishing, but Grandy will be putting out some action. Try yelow spiders around the shoreline for cutts, and hang on for any bass that will hit too.
