Fishy-finger. I hear ya man, I do think warnings can be appropriate in situations and your right depending on the guys who are working, they can have real attitude problems! I'm the worst for paperwork and have been givin lots of tickets b/c of it. Just seems like the f.w officers get a lot of criticism from folks who are in the wrong

Hey guys how do you access this by Quad?

by iFish Guest on Jan. 4, 2018

Is the lake accessible with a truck? Heard rumours that the truck trail to helena had huge logs dropped on it?

Capper, call the owner of LLB Sporting goods He gets all the f&w stories

Not blaming anyone goody 2 shoes, a couple 3 guys had expired pink cards/registration since they dont use their quads much in the winter but as you might have noticed there hasn't been much snow so...... It was an impulse trip and everyone was excited to go. They didnt even get a hook in the water and boom there the f&w were . No breaks at all, just ticket writing idiots on a power trip. Do you really need 4 officers to check licenses etc as another writes all tickets non stop. Their attitude was horrible too, they seem to forget who pays them. Anyway double check everything and just because you're in a remote spot trying to enjoy the outdoors and get your kids away from their xbox don't think your safe from you're getting a break!!!

I've been stopped by the f.w out here over 20 times in the last 7 yrs. they are reasonable guys Who have jobs to do. Catch people breaking the law, protect the lakes and discourage those who break the law from doing it again. Over the years I have revived both warnings and tickets for things I didn't have but For your group to get $3000 in fines you were clearly doing a lot of things wrong. No ones fault but your own!! Wear your helmet, register your quad, purchase and carry your fishing licence, keep the amount of fish you are allowed. People who make an honest mistakes should catch a break once and a while. $3000 in fines is not one little mistake. Man up and take responsibility and stop blaming others.

%u201CStop breaking the law A hole%u201D I'm kidding lol. That's sucks especially way out there can't even have a beer or 2

by FISHY-FINGER on Jan. 2, 2018

F&W are more then willing to ruin your day/yr on these remote lakes. Make sure your atv’s are insured, prop licenses, no booze etc etc. They got a group of friends for multiple violations, they left with $3000 in fines. They all said they are done ice fishing for good. Most of the fines were improper paper work for atvs and a couple guys brought 4 beers. They were scoped out with binoculars, congrats F&W you just crushed a few peoples ice fishing experience and now they are done!!!! They won’t even come out locally now. No warnings or repeat offenders!!!!

Got on the lake from the staging area with my side by side no problem! Just went out on the coldest weekend of the year apparently haha. Caught a few nice perch but couldn't find the numbers I wanted! Anyone want to give a guy a couple of tips where to go and what to use

Star Star Star Star Star

by Fishslayer2 on Mar. 11, 2017

Because the trail is s&$t.... The trail leaving the staging area you are right it's ohv only. The trail that crosses Helena onto Blackett and over to kanard we drive it all the time....... Pretty sure if I am in there with my truck and the park wardens show up they would ticket you....... Call lac la biche parks and ask. There is no issue. I have called to find out

Star Star Star Star Star

by KRONZYFISHBATTER on Mar. 11, 2017

The trails leading into this lake are for OHV vehicles only. Just like it says at the beginning of the trails. If you can access it with the truck why do the DNR not come in with trucks then?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Fishslayer2 on Mar. 10, 2017

You can access the lake with a truck threw the trail that crosses Helena. We do it all the time. And so do others. Stopped all the time by the park wardens and there is no problem.

by Chevybass on Mar. 8, 2017

You can't access the lake with a truck you will get a ticket by fish an game it's only for sleds/arc/utv no trucks

How was the quad ride in? Just curious about the trail condition with all this rain we've been getting.

Love this lake! Quadded in and had a beauty day. Back and forth between here and Kinnaird but the action was great for perch , walleye and jack all day.

Let's just clear the air here, there is truck access and it's always been that way. However if your boat needs to be hauled behind a truck to get it into the lake you aren't going to get it in here and you would need to come in from Jackson with your boat if its a decent sized pull for the quad. We as fishermen need to get along and put our silly differences aside. Take what you need, and leave the big girls so we can leave our lakes in prime condition for the next generation

All u people with atvs it's not ur personal lake quite your big lie do u know why there is no more big walleye in the lake because when u atvers finish ur perch fishing u stop at a walleye spot and catch a bunch to eat and u think trucks r bad for the lake give ur heads a shake anyone want to go to Blackett next year give me a shout next year theirs 12 to 14 inch perch and I know how to catch them

Talk to g w he will tell everyone that whoever keeps locking that gate is a goof NOBODY has the right to look that gate I drove in 5 years in a row including last. Year was in their last year with a 2014 f 150 by4

Star Star Star Star Star

by Romanchuk8 on Mar. 24, 2016

Depends how you get there. The gate into the bush trail that takes you to Helena is now locked. I haven't been this year, but last year there was only room for quads or skidoos to go around the locked gate. I'm sure you could clear some bush with a chainsaw, but the trail has grown in a lot. Can probably get a truck in through the Jackson access point..

Who ever said this lake is atv or sled access only is a goof u have been able to get in with a 4x4 for 40 years and it hasn't changed people are just pigs only to think that or lye to other people about the access

That's pretty big I hear they can get up to 16" In there

by Jess918 on Jan. 24, 2016

@Whitefish18 - we've caught 10-12" perch out of there with the odd 13". We just use little jigs or most often tiny little spoons with fresh maggots on them, works great

by Jess918 on Jan. 24, 2016

Was out there on Friday, started out slow caught one 10-11" perch, few bites, as the afternoon came in caught some pike, nothing huge, and right at dark the walleye started biting, nothing big enough to take. Lots of snow out there, probably getting to be too much for quads snowmobiles only I'd say.

by Whitefish18 on Jan. 8, 2016

Been out there 3 times since Christmas. First day got about 15 perch all bigger, 2nd day threw back a small walleye and no perch, 3rd day (jan 18) got 5 perch and threw back a walleye and a pike. Some patches of overflow be careful! The perch are great and big if they are biting.

Quadded in today and fished a few spots! Very hard to find the big perch or any perch for that fact! Think it was just a bad day for fishing!
