I put a reply to your question on the other thread. Braidwood is not quite what it used to be. Your best bet if you like exploring a bit is to check out Mazonia Lakes which is right next to it.

FishinMatt,

a guy at bps told me muskie fishing is pretty good there
My first fish at Braidwood was actually a tiger musky in 1994. I have not heard of one caught there in quite some time though. Same with the walleyes, hybrids, etc. They just seemed to vanish many years ago.

It would be like looking for a needle in a haystack. With the boilng hot temps of that lake in the summer, I would say there are not any left. I'd love to proven wrong though.

The last few years have been dreadful. Most of the Braidwood reports this Spring have been positive though. There are still a small amount of 3 and 4lb fish and some of stocked fish are finally getting up to 14-15''s. As long as they don't have any major fish kills and get some kind of recruitment with spawning fish, the next few years should be good. Judging from what I have read this year I think I will actually put the boat on it next March. It used to be a ritual for me but it has been a few years now.
