Amen brother! I used to fish that lake a lot in the early 90s when you could drive to the regular pull out that put you an honest 1/4 mile from the lake. It was rare to have more than one other party there with you. Unfortunately, half the time that other party consisted of baiters that always said "Oh, we didn't know it was fly fishing only." I know some of them were lying because it was the second or third time I had told them! Man, I hit a spinner fall there one evening that I will never forget. Caught a bunch of red-hot 2 year rainbows. Now that I think about it, that was probably the last batch of rainbows planted as the next year the DNR gate went up. Also loved casting damsel dries in the stumps to the monster (a 20" cutt is a monster, I don't care where he's caught) cutts. I also recall losing some #6 caddis on 4X tippet in the dark. I'd love to know what did that!
:THUMBSUP I'm all for putting pressure on the DNR to get public access in there. I would prefer using one (I know there are some there) of the back roads and not the regular road. Those folks scared me before they were mad. I can just imagine what might happen if a bunch of us fly fisherman opened it up. I wouldn't drive my new vehicle up there, that's for sure.
