The lake is approximately 3 ½ – 4 miles long and up to 1 mile wide. There are a few small feeder streams entering the lake and one flowage leaving the lake. The smallmouth bass are abundant and can be found on the many rock reefs and boulder piles around the lake. There are lots of bass in the 2-3# range with some pushing over the 5# mark. The northern pike are plentiful and run in the 4-7# range with many going over the 40” mark. These aggressive fish can found in the many weed beds and on the deeper rock structure around the lake. The walleye will also be found on the rock reefs and cruising the weed lines around the lake. These fish will run in the 19-24“ range with trophies pushing up to the 32” mark. Many large walleyes are caught and released on these waters. Fishtrap is known for larger walleyes.

There are also a couple portage lakes that offer more great fishing for fast action walleye, smallmouth bass, and northern pike. These portages are where you can expect to catch numbers of eater size walleyes. The one portage is a short walk to a fast action walleye lake with boats and motors waiting. It also offers some fantastic smallmouth bass fishing. The other portage is a long hike to an un named walleye lake visited by only a few fishermen each year. There is also another fast action walleye lake that can be accessed by boating up a creek and over beaver damns depending on the water level and your ambition level.
