Would like to take my boys for some shore fishing. Anywhere that's easy to get at? Less busy the better. Back road where I can park on the side of the road or something?

Use jig and Minnow. Single hook swim baits are good too. Gentle with our fish. See you soon

In this lake anything with a hook will easily catch stunted walleye and sickly pike with the greatest of ease.

Hi Powell, it is good for shore fishing. Last year around August, I saw some guys keep catching walleyes on the shore.

Considering it's closed to fishing April 1 - May 15 I'd hope your right.

One bite off the peak that is by the town boat ramp. Slow day. We know this lake is great in the summer. Just not biting today.

Ice was still 30" thick. Some water pooling from melting snow in some locations. 4x4 had no issues. Fishing was slow for us. Few small walleye and pike seemed more interested to bite early morning. But still really picky on presentation.

Was there Tuesday March 20th and fished 8 hours straight me n my buddy. Caught one small walley all day 😑. Hopefully better luck next time, but I've heard from others on the ice that it's been pretty slow there lately?

by Katfish on Mar. 16, 2018

Hey guys does anyone have an up to date ice thickness? Is it still safe for this weekend?

Does anybody know the ice thickness and is still safe to drive a light truck through the ice?

Was out this afternoon and smashed some walleye and pike. Saw a couple fat pike/whitefish on the camera. Driving with 4x4 is no problem.

Matty9729 sorry pal, I have pictures to prove it with fish on the scale, and with proper measurements. Harassment is not needed on this forum.

Another solid day. Took my nieces out for a couple hours steady action and a few nice walleye. Orange jighead and a minnow can't be beat.

Pretty good day when we went out, we caught 4 eyes and 2 decent pike. It was full hot action then the bite cooled down when an hour passed by.

Today out in front of main town was very slow, only one pike. No walleyes on the camera but seen a few whites. According to fishing calendar it should have been a productive day...lol. Fished in 12' depth.

Slow day yesterday (feb 9) Started off at point Alison and caught 1 walleye and didn't see much more, moved to the south east side and found active fish in 7fow, 4x4 is almost a must it'll be tough to get around in the snow without it.

anyone know how deep the snow is right now off town dock ? electronic not working right now so im 2 wheel this weekend

Not a lot of people out yesterday. But the fishing was good caught 4 nice walleye lost 2 at the hole and missed probably 10 or more bites. These walleye are really heathy looking and are a great eating size ( I realize this is a C&R lake) I don't see why they don't have atleast a few tags for this lake. Seems to be a strong walleye fishery. Anyways orange jig head the last 2 times out have been the money maker. Good luck out there stay safe.

If anyone is out here with slow fishing try an orange jig head with a minnow . Walleye seem to be loving them . Good luck

Went out yesterday in front of main dock and hauled in an average pike and Walleye. I missed a big walleye (approx. 5 pounds) and large pike. Only seen a few whites on camera in about 3.5 hours am.

Was out yesterday and today . Yesterday was 4 hours of nothing Today how ever I couldn't keep bait on my lines or any fish. Tons of aggressive bites but couldn't get it stuck. Tried different size jigs and hooks different hook placement on the bait. So for it being the only 2 times I've been to wab for ice fishing I'd say good lake but I have to learn the spots and techniques for this lake.

Fishy Fingers, I've been reading your comments for the last couple years on this lake. I fish this lake almost every weekend and it is hit and miss but if you put in the time you will be rewarded. We have caught walleye up to 8 pounds here and some really nice pike. Not to mention 8 plus pound burbot. There are still big girls in here you just have to find them but takes some time

There are big healthy whitefish in there.lots swimming around in there. Find the sand bars next to the weeds. Good lucj out there everyone!

Go out from Wabamun dock line yourself up with the peak of the trees and the power pole you should catch decent fish may I add please don’t overfish this the guy that showed this to me has been fishing there his whole life and I don’t think he’d enjoy it being ruined. I only caught like 2 fish but missed like 10 other fish flag went off twice both times bait was gone.

Geez, what's with all the dissing? Let's just get to the good stuff! What cares about all the bs some people are supposedly coming up with. I've had both great days and crappy days on the ice this year. I've caught a few big ones some days and not even a small walleye but on other days I've caught no pike and 30 small walleyes. Anyways, cut the bs, focus on the good things, like fishing!

Smellygunts...my wife and I own a lake front property on Wabamun. Prior to our purchase we researched many lakes in Alberta and found out through all the so called experts that Wabamun is one of if not the cleanest lakes in Alberta...just wanted to back your father inlaws statement.

Star Star Star Star Star

by smellygunts on Jan. 19, 2018

That's a 100% complete false statement FishyFinger! My father in law does water quality and control for Alberta lakes. It's actually quite the opposite. This lake is one of the cleanest in Alberta even after the spill. Gull/Pigeon and lac st Anne are a mess. He was saying they are years and years away from trying to get those lakes to recover.
