Things were really falling into place! The wading dusk bite was good, and on Tuesday morning I had five walleyes, biggest 17", trolling Rapalas in deep water. They should really be on the bite, the first warm spell, be ready.:T

Ranger16, I would take 77N to 76E to 5N. Make sure you stay on 5! It takes you up to Cortland. Before you get to Cortland look for signs for Mosquito state park! Also watch your speed on 5. It's always being patrolled!!! Good Luck

Luredaddy, What size and color rapala do yu prefer this time of year? I have been casting rapalas at the dam a few times this year- #7 floating and also suspending husky jerks- with no luck.

Are there any BIG Walleye's in Mosquito? I always seem to catch alot of the 15 to 18 inch fish, never any big ones! I caught on to many stumps that felt huge though! lol

Ill mine come from trollin. Get half dozen or so a year over 24. Heaviest at 8-9lb. They are there! Problem is staying on them because of the clear water. ALOT of diff ways to troll on res and they all work.
Something else This brings to mind. Does the DNR trap on the north end of Skeeter?

Hi, here are the directions to Mosquito from Canton.

Take 77 north to 76 east. Get off at the Ravenna exit (rt 5/82). Stay on 5/82 until the Elm Rd exit (Rt 5) turn right toward Cortland. To launch at the State Park continue on Elm Rd for about 3 minutes turn left at Warren Meadville Rd then about a 1/8 of a mile left onto Durst Colebrook rd. It will dead end at the dam. Turn left and the State Park is on your right. If you need to hit the bait shop first continue on RT 5 until Rt 305. Turn left and Lakeside Bait Shop is on your right. Turn out of LBS and turn left at the light and then turn right on the dam to the State Park. Good luck.

There is a bait shop inside the State Park, Joe and his wife are great people to deal with, and it is very convenient.

jig the dnr doesnt go north of Dans Marina. There is not any good net sights up north of 88. There is deffently enough fish up there but the topography is for the nets is not there. At least thats what I herd.

it used to have alot of big walleye in there until everyone wanted to keep every fish they caught in there. The lake recieves way to much pressure to regularly catch respectable eyes. ex: at least 23 inches

I think what we need is the state to put a Size Limit on some of these lakes like we have on the Bass, on some lakes or a slot length, it will take a while but it will bring back the big fish we used to catch. I used to catch some big eye's at Mosq. we all have.This size limit works in other states why not ours.:C .
