You don't see many people fishing there because it is full of carp. Unless you want to fish for those guys I suggest going somewhere else if your looking for trout.
Although I've heard that chasing carp on a fly rod can be fun (sight casting) but is difficult since carp are very clever fish.

I've wondered the same thing. There must also be Perch, Pike Minnow and other coarse fish in there for people to want to ice fish there unless carp are taken through the ice.

Could you actually see the carp, and were the in the shallows? I'm just wondering because I am considering going after them with my fly rod since it is close and all.

You actually saw trout in there? Rainbows or brookies? I know there is a small spawning creek (for Kokanee) in the area coming from Wood Lake and I think it might be connected to Duck Lake.

Did you land any of the trout? Just wondering because Pike minnows can look like trout from above and when hooked they can feel like small trout. I just never heard of trout in that Lake. It's not stocked either.

I'm still convinced this lake has only Carp, Pike Minnows, Perch and that's it. Someone prove to me Trout reside there.

Hi,
I just moved to Turtle Lodge which is right beside Duck lake and been asking people (who lived here for decades) about the fish species in the lake and everybody told me that there is lots of carp and whitefish but also trout and kokanee in there. Because the lake is connected through two rivers with all the lakes around it. I myself caught there a couple carp and pikeminnows. No luck on trout or kokanee yet.
One guy even told me there supposed to be walleye/pickerel in there.

Going out there this friday. If I catch something I'll post a picture.

Regards
HS

Thanks for offering to take a photo of any trout or Kokanee you catch in that lake. There are a few Rainbows in Wood Lake, that may wander down the creek to Duck for a look see, but doubt they stay there long. Wood used to have a lot more Rainbow but it isn't stocked most just try for Kokanee.

Speaking of catching trout in duck lake. I don't have much experience with trout and Kokanee can somebody give me some advice on bait and fishing technique.
I do have a 16' Gliding Eagle canoe with a MinnKota Traxxis 50 motor.

Thanks
Hs
