Looks like a Pond Prowler destination!!!

I took a Small Boat out there one time. Got some very Big Bass.

Had a Woman Agent that was a Hoot, lay Sun Bathing. Write Tickets to people not releasing Bass fast enough.

My beaver story from Manito is way less interesting than yours.  

Was wading way back in that cove by the spill gate when a big mama came swimming towards me.  I never really considered beavers anything to be afraid of so I kept on fishing. She gets about 20 feet from me still headed straight in my direction, so me, thinking that maybe she just hadn't noticed me said "Hey buddy what's up".    Now about 15' from me she speeds up ALOT and goes underwater straight at me.  I suddenly get this vision of her attacking my balls and I leaped out of the water and up on the bank like Spiderman.  

I never saw her surface again so I was afraid to get back in the water there.  Headed to the old fence row at the other end of the pond to finish my day. 😅

I was fishing on the bank by the spill gate Woman Agent comes down there asking for my Fishing License? I told her they was up the bank in my Pickup, she was nice carried my fish up there.

They had a Big Meeting in Tipton said the Lake was over run with Crappie and was going to have to kill it and restock. Seems the Bass got to work, ate the Crappie, got fat and they open the lake.

Use to go Rabbit Hunting South of the Lake. Had to wait on the Dogs to quit messing with the hides in the Parking lot.

I've had a few beaver encounters with terriers.  Yeah they have big strong teeth and jaws.  But they are prey in the overall scheme of things and they know it.  All they ever want to do is get away.  Fear no beaver.

Yeah in spite of the flooded timber it has never been a good crappie lake.  When you catch one it will be small and paper thin.  Just nothing for them to eat I guess.  The gills get fat on insect larvae, lots of big burrower mayflys, damselflies, craneflys and giant midges.

I've always found the bass fishing to be less than decent. Same with the catfishing.  Good place to go froggin' though.   Bluegill and bullfrogs are all it's really good for IMO.

I'm pretty sure that sow had babies nearby.  Early March and she was kinda cranky.  I quickly became very uncomfortable being in the water with her.  😁

My buddy was puddle jumping teal and was down in a slough. Saw a beaver swimming towards him. Didn't think about it. Then the beaver bit the back of his leg. Cut through his waders but only just missed getting a chunk taking from his leg.
