south end of the lake is the best place to launch. You can actually float your boat off there. Rocky? Well lets just say that you best take your time, trolling is a good tactic finding out where the fish are and the rocks. What size boat are you planning to use? As for secret spots they're all in the water.

just checked out the road into the south end boat launch (big oromocto lake near Harvey) and the beaver dam that was blocking the road this spring has been cleared and it's good driving in there with any kind of pick up or vehicle with a bit of ground clearance. A car might might not be that good as there are a few rocks and humps to clear, but hey if your driving an older model and don't mind picking your way along you might be OK who knows. Southend is the best place to launch as you can float a boat off there and it is in a protected cove where you won't get big waved rolling in off the main lake. Just take it easy getting out of the cove as there are lots of rocks to hit.

saw dust cove? never heard of it. For spring fishing any where in 4-6 feet of water (I'm serious). My fishing partner sits up front and warns of rocks or if it getting too shallow. We follow established gps tracks. The shoals run out a long way from shore so extreme caution is advised. A couple years back I ran my boat aground on that shoal at the south end of simms cove. Front of boat was in six inches of water and the back end was in 6 feet, never hit the motor and didn't do any damage as we were trolling. Can't wait for 01 May, however I'm not expecting a banner year because the ice will most likely let go any day now and with over a month to go the best fishing will be past by the time the season is open.

I am planning on fishing Oromocto lake this coming weekend. I was wondering if anyone knows how deep the lake is and where it is the deepest.

I am aware of the amount of danger areas and large rocks in the lake and you need to be careful. Just wondering in a general sense, where the deep points are or if it fairly uniform in depth.

Thanks in advance and GOOD LUCK OPENING DAY!!! Hammer some landlocks

pickerelmaster... check higher in the topic. There is a link to a map. That should give you everything you are asking about.

How did everyone make out on Big Oromocto this spring so far? We caught our limit of landlocks on opening day, haven't been out there fishing since.

I will be heading out opening day and may 2 as usual with my accountant from his cottage on the north end of the lake. I was thinking of heading out on the 3rd with another buddy in his new boat. I've heard of the public launch on the southern end of the lake but i've never been there. I have been on that dirt road before however. Can anyone let me know where this lauch is ? Maybe a googlemaps link location or coordinates?

Has anyone scouted the road there yet this spring? I'd be curious to know what shape it was in. Is it even driveable?

The link does not work for me anymore. If I can figure out how to post images/attachments then I will post the Oromocto Lake Bathymetrics Map.

If I'm not mistaken - they've fixed the road going in there but somehow think that they hauled wood out of it this winter?
So - I think its better than it was in years past - but could be tore up if they hauled wood out late?

I know I wasnt much help to you - but...
