It would be good if the fish would bite more. and they would clean it out so you wouldn't get snagged on a tree or something.

I agree 100%
My wife and I was there last night from 7:30 till 11:30 before we even got a bite,first fish was a 3lb blue cat and the second was a 16lb flathead and the 3rd was a 11lb flathead and just before we had left my wife hooked another flathead so we left.Idk why they put so many flatheads in there if their not gonna let you keep em.The guy sitting next to us caught a 11 1/2lb flat head not 5 minutes after i caught mine.

Also if you will notice,they come out and call for the tournament on saturday evenings at 6:30 which starts at 7pm,if you will notice before they call it you will see the owner dump 5 5gal buckets of stuff in the water,which i think is dog food to feed the fish so they can rack up on the 10.00 a person they charge to and keep their fish too.

I like Running bear,it needs to be cleaned up and so does the office and the restrooms,my wife sit there for 5 hours needing to go and wouldnt because they stunk so bad..

they do not feed their fish dog food, and they do not dump stuff in the water, also they try their best to keep it clean but its hard for one person to do it all by their self. and they can not help what kind of fish the truck brings and puts in the lake. but it is a good place to fish.

I always loved this lake. The last time I fished there was in 2006 and I caught plenty of fish.Of the ones I caught, at least 20-25 of them ranged from 20-54 POUNDS! Great place for big fish.

Uh yes they can help what kinda fish the truck puts in the lake,its what they call a *ORDER FORM* chk or call in what kind and how many and thats what they bring, and if they dont feed them why the hell is dog food floating around the lake like shit? and yes in the office there is dog food piled mile high,them loud mouth begals dont eat all that food if they did they wouldnt be any good to hunt unless he feeds the hell outta them to then rips pple off on em when he sells em.Homer use to own running bear and nvr caught any fish then either althought i like homer he now runs BIG BEAR out on 229

They charge 7 for 5 fish and 10 for the tournament which noone ever wins because they feed em just before they call it I KNOW I WAS THERE SATURDAY NIGHT but ill be damned they nvr got my 10 dollars and if my mind dont change they will nvr get another 7 either and if they dont clean it up like the bathrooms and the office where they fix burgers and stuff with the roaches crawling around someones gonna report them to the Health Dept and then they wont be gettin that fake tournament money anymore...HaHA!!!

its 7.00 to fish there and they do not feed the fish. if you will hang out there till they close you would see. so till you know facts dont run your mouth and if you think its so bad why go there. lots of other places to go . ken has 10 dogs and the dog food is for them so if your feeding the fish you need to stop dumping you trash there and blaming it on ken he will be pissed
oh no

Fact is: If you really know how to fish pay lakes, you will catch fish at any of them. Fishing these lakes requires unique tactics at each lake depending on different variables. Need some advice on a particular lake? Please ask and I will try to help.
