Which way are you going in and what are dragging your boat with? I have been there a few times with quad but only at the end of March or early April when things are still frozen, and I could follow the packed down snowmobile paths. Margaret Lake does not winter kill. I would recommend the norh end of the lake, where I believe it is the Ponton River that flows in. Great spot for Grayling and pike. Try around the lodge for lakers. If you get there when the ice is just coming off the lake the trout will be shallow and you can catch them from shore. If you go in on the Foggy Tower road consider fishing Semo lake for lake trout. I have caught many of them there but mostly in December/January as I have never fished there in the summer. Good luck.
