Marked out a 'reasonable' route on Onx.  Looks like .9 mile scramble would do it.  If fishing is that good, and I could pickup a couple of fat tire/wheel combo to throw together a decent canoe cart, I'd be up to the challenge with a strong partner or two.  Canoe, Optimum gel cell battery, trolling motor, beverages, and fishing gear shouldn't go much over 350 pounds.  What's the closest camping?

Not sure if anyone can speak for the fishing since it has been non-accessable for over 8 years. But since the WDFW plants more Kokanee in this lake than the other lakes I suspect it would be good. The Bass should be stellar. (They used to be)

But it would maybe benefit you to instead of trying to get on this until they resolve it. Just over the hill from you is Curlew that also has Kokanee, Tiger Muskies, and Bass. If you like perch last year they were going just short of 13 inches thru the hard water. You also can drive to the lake and launch and there are places to camp. Another plus to Curlew is the time your going to be fishing it you won't be wandering around the sage brush looking for rattler snakes on your way in.

Might have to resurrect that option.  Got some good memories spending time on Curlew Lake years ago.  Had an old wooden runabout that I restored.  Mainly fished the south end.  Had to replace the shear pin one trip while navigating thru the narrow pass into the main lake.  Don't know that we ever targeted the kokes?
Economy failure = Too many people spending money they don't have on things they don't need to impress people they don't like.
