crop e man, I have fished Fall River Lake as well as Toronto. Both these lakes have trophy crappies in them. Largest to date, in my boat(last Aug.) 17in and weighed 2.80lbs(certified). Have caught several over 2.5lbs. & 2lb fish very common. They are small lakes with just about 2500 acres surface. Both lakes feeder rivers are fishable with ramps. Fall River lake has no standing timber but plenty of man-made brush-piles. Toronto has standing timber in the coves. These lakes rose to over 30ft high last June. Did not get back to normal until Aug. Both lakes are shallow with more 6ft water than 20ft. Have found only 1 map of Toronto, none for Fall River. When to go??? Have done real well at Fall River last Jan. 07 fishing the piles. Have made 1 trip to Toronto this winter and it sucked. Found out later they open the dam gates which turned the bite off. Haven't been back as it froze over. Other than the spawn(April & May) times, I would suggest a late July trip to Toronto. Those bigguns move into the trees and you can really target them,,,,,shallow!!!! I am a guide and would love to take you out to show you how to slam these biguns. KDWP nettings has produced some crappies well over 3lbs. Can't wait to hit them again. Had some of the MO. crappie.com guys come over last Sept. They will return this year with a 'crappie camp'. Lots of fun even if the are from MO. Need more info??? <*)}}}><
