Nockamixon Lake was recently surveyed by the PFBC and has a good population of tiger muskies. Curiously, purebreds were stocked in the past but failed. Personally, I'd rather see the PFBC focus more on pure rather than tiger muskies but, as this study shows, sometimes the hybrids seem to thrive where purebreds don't (I have no idea why) and, at least in the past, tigers were cheaper to raise in the hatcheries.

Anyway, a trip to Nockamixon might be worthwhile for some toothy critter success. Good numbers of big largemouths are present too.

I've only fished for musky in a lake a couple of times. Im outta my element I admitt. For me there a intirely different critter in a lake than in a river. At least for me.

fished there for years after the tigers. haycock run area is a good place to try, lots of cover for them to hang around.

A tiger musky is a hybrid from a female muskellunge and male northern pike.

Interesting that they did trap any fish above the 40" limit - those fish seem to be growing at very consistent rates across the population.
