Well hopefully you were not on Muir in late November 'cause it's closed from November 1 to April 30!
by sedubius on Apr. 18, 2017
That's wishful thinking, however I am wishing too... Gonna be a late start. Oh well I was still out on the lake late Nov. last year.
by Mr Flyguy on Apr. 15, 2017
Only 2 weeks to opening day (May 1). Let's hope the ice is gone.
by Goggin on Apr. 9, 2017
Still plenty of ice as of apr 9th nice to see aeration system going
by Alberta_flyfisher on Apr. 7, 2017
Has anyone been out recently? Is the ice off? Any reports of dead fish?
by SnapBack02 on Nov. 1, 2016
Fished for a few hours the other day, landed 4 on back swimmers about 10ft off the dock. Biggest was 20.5 inches! Good to see!
by Mr Flyguy on Aug. 13, 2016
Some of us will likely go out in the fall for the backswimmer action but if others want to wait for next spring that's OK with me!
by Alberta_flyfisher on Aug. 11, 2016
Weeds have fully taken over the lake, in a float tube it's unfishable. Don't bother even trying. Go to another lake. You won't have a good time. The weeds are getting close to the dock as well.
by Craig W. on Aug. 9, 2016
Was out yesterday evening (Aug. 8). Weeds have grown almost to the surface (nearly everywhere). Not a sign of trout jumping/surfacing anywhere at all. Water's probably too warm at this stage in mid-summer. Don't waste your time until next spring folks.

Alberta flyfisher.........i caught a couple last June
by Alberta_flyfisher on Jul. 22, 2016
I haven't ever caught a brown at this lake. All rainbows, since someone asked. Been fishingit for 9 years.
by Patzaz on Jun. 21, 2016
How big are the fish these days guys.
by That_guy on Jun. 19, 2016
Finally came back with my boat. Tried out 4 different flies before I found success with a green Willy bugger. Caught 3 within 30 minutes
by That_guy on Jun. 1, 2016
First time here really nice lake. Didn't catch anything (dock was busy and could only find shallow water by shore) would love to come back with a canoe.
by iwilliamm on Jun. 1, 2016
The fishing has been fun so far although mostly smaller ones , it's too bad about the whole arreation problem ... Hope to see some good size ones in the next year or two :)
by SnapBack02 on May. 26, 2016
Fishing has been good this week surprised on the size range of these fish. Biggest was 16" smallest was 10". Still trying to find the Browns tho. Anyone have any luck with them?
by Barrybull on May. 26, 2016
Was out Wed 25th.........the fishing was good....28 fish all catch and release from belly boat.....was there a week ago and it seems they got a little bigger.....all caught again on the Gumphus........Hey Newfie69....care to go out sometime together
by Newfie69 on May. 18, 2016
The lake is fishing well right now. Unlikely to get a nice keeper but it's good fishing just the same.
by Barrybull on May. 18, 2016
At Muir today.......15 Rainbows....10" to 14"....all on green and brown Gumphus
by Barrybull on May. 16, 2016
Thats because they just stocked it.....I posted it
by Craig W. on May. 15, 2016
3 nice rainbows today!View on Map
Despite the winterkill, I caught three 12" rainbows mid-afternoon today on a small spinner (from a boat). Tons of them jumping today, and lots being caught by others too.

The government killed this amazing lakes just like they have done to Alberta. ..disgusting
by NorthernYaker on Apr. 9, 2016
Sad but true....along with several other quality fisheries
by pikeguy420 on Apr. 9, 2016
Cannon ask what makes you think that? I went and seen lots of minnows and no dead trout. Are you sure about this? I am not the most informed about the lake.
by jaytwizzy on Apr. 6, 2016
Lake is DEAD!!! Sooo mad right now
by Patzaz on Mar. 13, 2016
They did and the last ACA report is there will be partial, potentially full die off.
by sedubius on Mar. 6, 2016
Can anyone confirm that they have put the new revised aeration program in place on Muir?
by SLEMZWORLD on Oct. 14, 2015
Only got one this past weekend and the water temp was quite cold on the old legs out on the float tube but it was fun regardless! Fish is back swimming and my toes are back to normal haha
by Mr Flyguy on Sep. 25, 2015
Good fishing now on backswimmer/boatman patterns. Recent three trips have yielded a number of fish over 20 inches.
by Maztransit on Sep. 1, 2015
On and off quickly this past Weeeknd. Saw someone catch a 20.5" but didn't get anything ourselves.
by kstepney on Aug. 20, 2015
Was on the lake from 7:30 till Sun down. No fish, no bites. It was slow for everyone on the water. Did not see any fish caught. Some surface activity, but I couldn't match what was active.
by Isaac Haines on Jul. 13, 2015
Water temp is pushing 25° celsius. Please rain!
by albertan-yaker on Jun. 11, 2015
Kayak fishing, was using a spinning reel with a Arctic fox (pink and silver). Caught 5 rainbows smallest was 10', largest was 18' so close to a keeper..great day!!
by Bluenoser1971 on Jun. 8, 2015
Last night, lots of fish surfacing, but not much biting. A dozen craft on the water, only saw two fish reeled in. Did see a trout the size of my arm take a GIANT leap though. That made the night worth it.
by jason shaw on Jun. 3, 2015
Oh yeah I released them all last week . Went out tonight only got one about 17 "
Great hidden treasure. Fly fishing or spinners only. Was out last week and got three one 21 and 19 inches the rest were small. Oh and got one brown 14 inches
by spatchola on May. 30, 2015
Caught a nice healthy rainbow Friday 29 th May, a decent 2 + lbs, released it back for another day.

by London on May. 7, 2015
Any spots for some shore fishing??
by Soiler on May. 3, 2015
Awesome day! Bombers started coming up bout lunch time & the fish keyed in on em quick! Great day on the water!! 15 trout on Crom's
by Wingnutt37 on May. 2, 2015
Tested out the new kick boat today and with this weather it passed only wish my knot didn't fail me just as I was about to land the only fish I saw this morning. Redemption is mine little trout, I will be back!
by Soiler on May. 1, 2015
Ya, I caught a little 11" Brown today. They grew a bit over the winter. Hopefully they can grow a few more inches over this summer.
by SnapBack02 on Apr. 29, 2015
Has anyone hooked into a brown here? According to last years stocking report they had 450 put in.
by Riverbear on Apr. 29, 2015
The lake is closed for fishing till may 1. Careful friends.
by Meangene1933 on Apr. 28, 2015

Are u aloud a trolling motor on muir? Never been out there and wanna give the lake a whirl when it opens Cuz I just started fly fishing

by WildGunz on Apr. 24, 2015
Anyone been by lately? Im assuming ice will be clear for next Friday.

Come on May 1 can't wait
by Golfwriter on Sep. 22, 2014
Planning on going Wedn afternoon & since I'm new to this would appreciate any helpful advice for shore casting. Is the dock a good spot?
by bakercreek56 on Aug. 15, 2014
Would love any tips for what they are taking in the evenings. Early season I was catching loads but now can't seem to match the fly. Tried chroni, Caddis emerged, San Juan worm, mayfly emerged, boatman and back swimmers. Nada. Help a brother out!
by Cajed1 on Aug. 14, 2014
Spin casting has paid of for mr here this yr. nothing smaller than 14" so far plenty of 17-19" and a couple over 21". Not a lot each outing about 1 a hour. I find it's all about time of day. And I'm usually leaving as people show up.
by Dan83 on Aug. 14, 2014
I would say this lake is tailor made for the fly fisherman. Lots of trout jumping around today, however this lake is filled with thick grass weed. Not so good for spin casting.
by Marko_o8 on Aug. 13, 2014
Two hours on spinners no bite. Few rainbows jumping around, better for fly.
by Action fish on Aug. 5, 2014
Was out for three hours this evening and landed four
by Jersey on Aug. 4, 2014
Catching one or two an hour on the fly. Caught one three lbs. all fish caught are back in the lake for the next angler
by bakercreek56 on Aug. 2, 2014
I can't speak for spin fisherman but for Fly fishing this is a great lake. It offers a challenge every time and offers big trout. Fished it three times this year and caught fish every time and some real beauties!
by JDS on Jul. 24, 2014
14" rainbow caught off spinner. Only one though in about 3 hours. View on Map
by Jeffjohnstone on Jul. 14, 2014
What makes me sad is all the hard work put into muir. Going to be ruined by a handful of wannabe fishers

by l.simps on Jun. 15, 2014
Other than leeches what have you guys been using for flies?
by WildGunz on Jun. 7, 2014
Caught a beauty 24" today on a black leach.
Girth bigger than both my arms.
She now back swimming...
Thats all I caught. But had no problem leaving early after that show.
by Jeffjohnstone on Jun. 6, 2014
Grumpy why are you even eating them??
by Grumpy Gus on May. 13, 2014
Was out there opening day with no luck- wind was horrible. Some others caught a few on the fly- said they looked healthy.
And for those curious- they taste just like the black mud they live in.
by Dipperdan on May. 11, 2014
Fishing can tough off shore but not a lost cause. Try indicator with a balanced leach or chironomid . Have fun . please no bait and only over 20 inchs
by SnapBack02 on May. 8, 2014
I'm new to fly fishing and was wondering if anyone had advice on what flys to use here? Any help would be appreciated about fly fishing muir in general
by SnapBack02 on May. 5, 2014
Just off the dock View on Map
by Cajed1 on May. 5, 2014
Faux worms or plastics ok if they are unscented/unsalted. And yes plenty of shore fishing spots.
by Clark on May. 5, 2014
Are there places to shore fish?
by FishOn420 on May. 4, 2014
yes those are both "bait", maybe give your regulation book another read.
by stingray14 on May. 4, 2014
out there today for a few hours. no bites only guys catching anything were on a boat with fly rods. anybody know if powerbait and faux worms are considered bait?
by Yakfisher on May. 4, 2014
I was out tdy and caught one about 55cm let it go we were out there for hr half.. Slow
by Cajed1 on May. 4, 2014
Absolutely no Ice left for several days now. Plenty of little tinnies, kayaks, and float tubes. You'll be good to go.
by huska on May. 3, 2014
Hey cajed1, any boats out there today? I'd like to go out tomorrow if there isn't much ice left.
by iFish Guest on May. 3, 2014
Hey cajed1, were there any boats out today? Curious if there is any ice left. I'd like to go out tomorrow
by Clark on May. 3, 2014
Can you shore fish here?
Is Muir open to boat fishing? According to regulations it is. Still some ice in the middle?
by Jeffjohnstone on May. 1, 2014
They have to be over 50 cm. I don't know of anybody who actually keeps them. When they are that big. Too much respect for them.
by stingray14 on May. 1, 2014
Does anybody know if the fish here are good to eat? Had a friend tell me he heard the fish are no good but weve never cauggt them from muir
by DionRoy on Apr. 29, 2014
I went to the lake this morning. Open water near the dock and boat launch areas. Still a bit of ice mid lake and on the West side (looks pretty thin).. It's already fishable from shore. After today's heat wave May 1st looks like we'll be good to go! Can't wait.
by WildGunz on Apr. 28, 2014
I'll be there with bells on %uD83D%uDE0F
by Fish Hero on Apr. 28, 2014
Muir will be clear enough to fish by the first. I seen fish rising last night. :)
by WildGunz on Apr. 22, 2014
Anyone know if muir looks like it will be clear for the 1st?
by BigFish26 on Mar. 11, 2014
No ice fishing aloud at muir I think
by l.simps on Mar. 9, 2014
Do people ice fish here?
by Jeffjohnstone on Sep. 16, 2013
Quick question what flies are being used that fish here like?
by Tysonf on Aug. 31, 2013
Went out this morning for a couple hours and had a couple bites but my paddle holder broke off so I had to limp back to shore. Nice little lake though.
by iFish Guest on Aug. 23, 2013
Out almost everyday the last 2 weeks, hammered between 8-12 everyday mainly 18" in size, good fishin muir!
by Jeffjohnstone on Aug. 22, 2013
I agree with all the work they put into muir and what it used to be like. It would be nice if people released fish. That way they are allowed to get big and fishing would be more exciting. I don't mind if people keep some. Per month but watch a guy at east pit who I am sure goes everyday and keeps all he catches
by Cory10 on Aug. 16, 2013
by iFish Guest on Aug. 9, 2013
I agree it would be nice if it was only catch and release. Same with all the stocked ponds in the Edmonton area. Nice place to fish, but if people would leave them in there people would catch more fish...hence the term fishing.
by Jeffjohnstone on Aug. 1, 2013
If anybody found a wallet please email. email@example.com
by Cory10 on Jul. 8, 2013
Fished on Sunday. Caught one 16" Used leech pattern.
by Scotty123 on Jul. 7, 2013
Some very large fish in this lake, fished all day no bites, have to very precise on what flies or hookes to use.. Plus they took out the dock...

by Golddagda on Jun. 18, 2013
Nice little lake but NO Bait allowed so its a bust seen a couple jump but no bites
by Yukon77 on Jun. 15, 2013
Had a bunch of hits with a 5 of diamonds. Right off of shore by the dock. Had a good size on the line but my line slipped.. Rookie mistake and lost a lure! Oh well it was still good!
by iFish Guest on Jun. 8, 2013
it would be lovely if Muir was strictly catch and release.
by iFish Guest on Jun. 2, 2013
My brother and I were out on Muir Lake on Saturday .Got one at first light around the 14 inch ,then around 10 am i noticed some risers on the east side of the island .For a bit i watched and saw some Caddis fly's dropping and luckily i had brought some with me.
Got 3 on the surface within the hours all over 20 inch... :)
by iFish Guest on May. 19, 2013
caught 54 cm today after two hours only one I caught good eating
by JohnnyD on May. 12, 2013
Fished for 1.5 hours yesterday after. I only caught one little guy, newly stocked, but my brother landed a big one, just 4 cm short of the minimum... he was using a five of diamonds.
by sagewh0re on May. 12, 2013
was out yesterday for around 6 hours in the float tube, found all the first year stocked fish and caught around 40 of the 4-5 inch guys, couldn't hook into anything big it was pretty slow for everyone else.

by Cajed1 on May. 1, 2013
3/4 lake is ice for opener today. Not looking good folks. No rises, no nibbles for anybody in 3.5 hrs I was there.
by Sdoering on Apr. 29, 2013
Has anyone been out to muir ? Ice almost off the lake ?
by Troutman on Oct. 9, 2012
Fished there yesterday with buddy. He caught a little one, and I had a bite. Talk to some dude on shore, he said he caught lots. He had some big spoon on the end of his line. It was silver on the back of it, who knows what the front looked like.
by Fly guy on Sep. 13, 2012

First time fishing this lake. Only fished for 3 hrs but I caught 5 and the Gf caught 2. One of mine was pretty big but not big enough. 43cm.
by Sw08 on May. 26, 2012
Nice little lake, girlfriend and I caught 6 over 16" and she caught a 19 and 23" out of belly boat.
by JohnnyD on May. 19, 2012
Hooked two and had a couple more strikes in two hours, fishing from shore. They were just little guys, freshly stocked, but a monster jumped around 10 metres from shore.

Was just casting off shore on the SW side of the lake. My bf caught two little ones, but all i caught was weeds, weeds and more weeds.
by Fishman69er on May. 1, 2012
Isnt this lake fly fishing only ??
by Dean on Apr. 13, 2012
Does anyone know if the ice is off yet?
by New fly guy on Oct. 25, 2011
Went there today it was to windy for the fly so tried my spinning with a Rapala rainbow minnow and caught one good day all in all

Went last weekend early in the morning and caught 5 small ones and lost 4 . The action stopped at 9:30am. I fished from shore and out fished guys out on the lake.

by Jeffp on Sep. 5, 2011
Muir was great today. 3 fish all over 20". Perfect day, not to busy, hungry fish.
by SumYungGi on Sep. 3, 2011
I used to drive out to Muir many years ago (20+) from Edmonton to enjoy the lake and the fishing. Back then, some idiot dumped some Jackfish in the lake and they nearly ate all the trout. He thought it made for more entertaining fishing!! Moron. Glad to hear people are still fishing there and catching trout. Do people still swim there?
by Flyguy on Jul. 18, 2011
Love this lake. Best with boat and flyrod. Smart, big rainbows (3lb-20" & 6lb-26"), lots of weeds.
by Doc on Jul. 16, 2011
This is a quality enhanced fishery with regulations of no bait (flies or lures only), one trout over 50cm per day (all others must be released and the lake is closed from November 1 - April 30. Muir is aerated during the winter helping the trout survive and grow to a good size. Trout of up to 24 inches have been caught here.
by Mr.K on Jul. 9, 2011
Can get muddy and weedy. Best shore fishing is probably from the dock casting north west.
by Jaykul on Jul. 4, 2011
Fished all morning no hits until 10am and then had a fish strong enough to break my new 6.5lb tippet off. Frustrating or what?
by Ricecracka on Jun. 15, 2011
Fished 3 hrs in a boat and caught 2 with a spinrod and spoon And a little guy trolling a fly
by Boognish on May. 24, 2011
Great small lake. Air rated in winter huge rainbows and also stocked every year. There is a bait ban and a limit of one fish. The only down side is that there are alot of weeds.
by Agitated angler on May. 15, 2011
Fished all afternoon from shore. Didn't get a single bite. Would be a nice place to relax if the wind didn't keep blowing me off my chair though.
by xtreme_hunter09 on May. 10, 2011
fished for 4 hours in the belly boat, the only thing i got was almost frost bite and one actual bite. people were saying it might of winter killed, but i didnt see any dead fish. too early for fly fishing is my guess. we will just have to wait and see.
by ToeSpeed on May. 7, 2011
Fished right beside the dock for a hour and had 2 good fish. Looking forward to spending a whole day there now!
