Default Tribble Mill Park in Lawrenceville

How's the fishing at Tribble Mill Park in Lawrenceville? Per the Website, it's about 700 acres and electric only. Just wondering how the bass fishing is there.

The park is 700 acres. The big lake is a little over 100 acres. Not sure on the fishing now since they added grass carp. I haven't heard many good reports since the grass carp were added though. It was good summer fishing before the grass carp.

Fishing there is rough, the smaller lake has been a better bet if anything.

We spoke on the phone last night. Stopped by there today on the way home from work and got a pork BBQ sandwich and some Brunswick Stew. The stew is very good as you mentioned. The place is called Bolton's Market but, if you Google it, it shows up as Bolton Grocery.

I then went over to Tribble Mill Park (lake) by the boat ramp and saw plenty of minnows/baitfish right there in shallow water with a couple of fish thrashing at them. I drove around the park and saw the smaller lake as well and spoke to a young guy who had just finished fishing. He caught a 3 lb largemouth on a plastic worm fishing from the bank. I noticed what looked like a boat ramp of sorts on the opposite bank but, as I drove around, there didn't seem to be a way over there. Is there no way to launch a boat on the small lake?

You have to tote a boat to one of the ponds, The big one is the only one you can launch a trailered boat.... the one on the left driving in which goes under a bridge and goes over on your right, then if you keep driving you will run into another one, which has a park beside and all that... and its called something else, Like I was telling you, I don't have a small boat right now so I haven't been there to fish yet ,I was just going by what the woman told me, And the pics.... Did you see them..

5??? I think somebody gave you some bad info man. There are only 2 lakes in the park. Even aerial maps don't show any more ponds that could even be close enough to be mistaken as part of Tribble Mill. I have a spare kayak if you want to get out one day.

I went there yesterday and parked on chandler. I launched my kayak into the smaller lake and caught 2 LM. One right at a pound and the other a tad over...They were busting top water pretty good for a solid hour but I had my daughter on the back and i didnt make but 20-30 cast the whole time.

Myself and 'I Wish I Was Fishing' might head over there tomorrow around 6:30-7 if you want to meet up. We are bringing our kayaks.

No problem. Falling out won't be such a bad thing with these temps!

That's good to know and the fish looks healthy too.

I used to wear em out in the lower lake when they first opened the park. Been a few times this year, and haven't caught any. They drained the lower lake some years back, and I didn't start fishing it again til this year. Not sure why I can't catch one now....

Looks like a nice pond and I will definitely give it a whirl. I seem to have luck bumping the bottom with a weedless green pumpkinseed worm at Yargo. I assume it will work there as well.

Default the 4th a bust @ lower lake

I fished the bank around the entire 2nd lake yesterday @ "Trouble" Mill. Fished for 2-1/2 hours. Threw everything at 'em. Weedless worms & top water frogs thru the pads around the edges, big spinner baits, small spinner baits, cranks baits, you name it... And not a single bite. Came across 2 or 3 other guys fishing the banks in various places and they were all having no luck either. Wonder if the bass have all just gone down to the deepest parts of the lake to escape the blistering heat of the shallows after the last week of 100+ temps? What was really odd was the water was gin clear all the way around the lake, and there were areas where I could see the bottom of the lake 30 to 40 feet out from the bank, and I never so much as saw a fish? even with polarized glasses. Didn't even see many bait fish around the banks? Just an odd day?

I assume you're talking about the small lake with no boat ramp. I'm curious how often guys use boats/kayaks to fish that lake. If not often, I can imagine some good-sized bass out in the deeper parts.

I fished the smaller lake out of my kayak last week and managed a couple. One a tad over a pound..lost of top water action though... I dont have any electronics on the kayak so I dont know the contour out in the middle or depth.

Anyone here had a depth finder out in the smaller lake?
