Hey does anyone know if Jack & Lydia's resort on Deep Lake is still open? I tried calling the past couple days to inquire about boat rentals and they have not answered.

Is there a place to launch a boat at Deep lake or is it private?

I am not sure, but I believe there is not a ramp. You have to rent one of their boats.

You can rent boats from Jack and Lydias', nowhere to launch your own boat. You can bring your own 9.9hp or smaller outboard, they will drive it down to the water for you in a cart, long steep walk. Great people, nice Polish restaurant run by the them as well right next door (Reflections), fun little bar to unwind after fishing there too.

Been going there since the 70's when Jack's mom and dad used to run the place. Jack, Lydia and their kids run the resort and restaurant now. Hard working family. Jack is a character full of jokes. Tell him Wasyl the ukie sent you He will take good care of you. Great fishing lake with bass, northern and nice pan fish. Well defined weed lines and clear water. His Lund boats are in great shape. You can also bring a trolling motor with battery and they will drive it to the boat. Enjoy.

Will definitely go back. 20 bucks to rent a rowboat for the whole day. Super clear water and very clean. Only saw two other boats out there. Got one nice size perch and let him go after I didn't get anything else. Saw a lot of fish jumping. It would be nice if we could rent boats before 6am during the hot months.

If you talk to Jack the night before, he may leave a boat unlocked for you to get out earlier. He did that for me and my old boss a few years ago. Bossman might have thrown Jack a few extra bucks.
