Nine days till the derby and fishing is still a little slow. I am not worried at all because that means the bite will be on for opening day of the 2016 Peter Cameron Morrison Memorial Derby!
Here are the lakes for this year’s derby:
Hook Lake, Kump Lake, Thalia Lake, Goose Lake, Rickey Lake, Clifford Lake, and Lodwick Lake.
All of these lakes are off the Pike Mountain Forest Service Road with the exception of Hook Lake. Most have good boat launch access with the exception of Hook which can be dicey unless you are able to carry your small launch to the water.
The winning fish caught by Ken Woodward last year did come out of Hook Lake though, which might change your mind. If you are looking for maps of the area, they can be found through the Backroads Mapbooks app or books.
This PDF map shows an overview of the general Pike Mountain area lakes:
