Frenchman Lake

Weather has been excellent for fishing. Fishermen are catching their limits near Lunker’s Point and across the lake at Turkey and Crystal Point. Also, the dam area is picking up. Most fishermen are still using nightcrawlers and various lures to catch their limits and floating them off the bottom.
