@CrappyAngler, I saw the camp gate was closed on Sunday. I tried to get to this lake from north side beside the railway in summer. There were a lot of small bushes here. How did you access this lake? Thanks.

Which farmers gate is the access point to the lake? I only have a 2WD 1 ton with a set of chains. I do have a whole lot of gear to drag out as well. I’m taking a bunch of kids out on the ice next weekend, I want to make sure it’s a positive experience. Thanks.

Any recent report of thickness of ice and fishing condition?

Lots of trucks out on the ice, but plenty of small perch to be caught. You most likely won't catch anything over 8", but you will catch a ton of fish. Lots of fun for kids or someone who is trying to get into ice fishing. Good luck!

Very quiet day on the ice. One bit. 12 inches of ice.

Took my daughter out yesterday. Drilled a hole so she could fish while I set up and she landed a small perch right away. We stayed on the lake for a few hours. Perch are small but it was a great time for my daughter. Overall great day. If you want to take your kids to a lake near Edmonton where they will definitely catch fish Mink is perfect.

Hi Rocksniper, where is the public access to this lake? I don't want to camping, I only want to fishing there. I guess the register center won't let me enter their campground. Thanks.

Caught and released 15 tiny perch. Had to move holes often once one went dry but usually always had nibbles.

So, is the farmers field option the only other access other than going though the campground? I hear you can't drive in from the campground. Is there any other access points to be able to drive on?

by iFish Guest on Jan. 8, 2018

When i went to try the lake today i saw no trespassing signs at the entrance to the farmers field so i showed some respect and didnt drive in there. Went to wab instead.
