Lake: Hawk Springs

Any Info on Hawk Springs?

I am just curious about the lake. A year and a half to two years ago Hawk Springs was fishing very well for warm water fish. The past few times I've been up there, including winter, it has been really, really slow (I mean ZERO bites) and I noticed fewer and fewer anglers. Last time there were no boats on it at all, except me. Does anyone know of any specific problem the lake has had? I've queried the WY F&W people by email, but have not yet had an answer and their regular newsletter doesn't mention anything.

ecar50 seems to fish the a bit.
hope he sees this.
I don't have a clue about this lake. And Google has little to offer also.

I did receive your email!

I have had the same luck when it comes to WGFD.
if you go into an office they will help right away but email never works for me.
Let me see if anyone on my Facebook knows about the lake.

Hawk Spring Reservoir is now full. The results from creel surveys from last weekend showed anglers catching walleye and black crappie. Walleye were in the 16 inch range and crappie 9 inches. Fifty nine anglers were interviewed. All but 14 had caught fish with most catching several fish of both species. Cool weather slowed the fishing but with warmer weather returning, angler catch is improving. March through June are the months with the fastest catch.
