hey frank how ya be? i haven't fished hamlin lake before but have
wanted to, so i have a bit of info about the lake thou. there are 7
boat launchess on the lake--3 are in the southern half of the lake and
4 are in the northern half. only have info about parking and what type
of launchess on 3 of them thou.
--the 1st. launch is on the west shore, in the state park , hard surface, parking for 15 vehicals, plus a fee.
--the 2nd ramp is along the north shore close to the inlet and is a
USFS runned and has parking only for 10 vehicals. also is a gravel ramp.
--the 3rd ramp is also a gravel ramp and parking for 10 vehicals. it to
is in the northend of the lake but on the south shore near victory park.
now to talk about the fish. since 2000 there has been alot of walleyes
and muskies planted, so there should be some good fishing from these
fish right now. one of my books that i have on this lake says the best
summer eye fishing is along the east shore near the narrows, just south
of the narrows. there is a wall like struture that goes from 13ft. down
to 75ft., with a shelf that forms in the 30ft. range. for the pannies
the book says to try the narrows that divides the lake from the upper
and the lower. also should try the breaks over near the state park boat
launch. for smallmouth bass ya should look around these same breaks too.
the book doesn't cover much for the summer fishing for pike, perch or
largemouth bass other than saying that they are in the lake.
