Hi All...has anyone fished Valens before. Heading up there in a few weeks and any info on where to start looking for crappies would be appreciated. I was told the max depth on the lake is around 14ft. Any info or insight would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks Jeff

Curious also, Licence-free family fishing is this weekend so I was thinking about possibly trying to talk the family into going there on Saturday during the Annual Ice Fishing Derby (Weather/Ice Conditions Permitting). It's been a Long Long Time Since I went ice Fishing (Sometime around 1999-2000 I guess, when I was about 10-11 Years Old), We Have no Gear for ice Fishing though I got a $20 Canadian Tire Gift Card for Christmas that I could use to get a Cheap Ice Fishing Rod/Reel Combo unless a normal Kids/Youth Rod would be OK, we might have 1 or 2 of those around that my Nieces could use if they decide to give it a try instead of skating.

I used to fish there as a kid (early 90's was last time I was there).  At the time, you could rent a row boat but there's also a bridge to fish off of.  I recall it being very weedy.  Never caught anything big there - mostly small pike, bass and pan fish.
