Hi NC, We usually fish from shore. There are a couple of spots just south of the Boat Launch that are 20-30 feet deep. The end of the camp ground is good too but it is now closed.

Yes, I have been wondering as well, are the lakers biting lately? Would it be worth it to fish from shore?

by scordz on Oct. 13, 2014

Anyone have luck here lately?

Star Star Star Star Star

by scordz on Sep. 8, 2014

Same here gordachuk. It didn't matter what we were using, they were not biting at all.

Fished there all weekend. Tried spoons, lures and bait. don't even think I had a nibble. Tough.

by scordz on Aug. 26, 2014

Anyone have any luck this week at Spray? It seems to have slowed down the past couple of weeks.

by Jayjoe on Aug. 14, 2014

Buzz bomb for jigging, good idea for Lake trout never thought of that, have you ever tried down rigging at spray for Lake trout? Any luck, I tried there a few weeks ago and got skunked.

by Fishholic on Aug. 13, 2014

I was using yellow /green and yellow/ orange buzz bomb tipped with piece of smelt. I was on a boat running around and looking for fish. My fish finder saves lot of time to look for fish. As soon as i see school of fish I stop my boat and drop buzzbomb immediately. Lot of bites and misses.

Hi all, I was originally thinking of fresh water smelt - didn't mean to confuse anyone. Happy fishing.

Star Star Star Star Star

by NC on Jun. 13, 2014

Cajed1 smelt originated in salt water, any freshwater smelt in Canada were introduced into the lakes a long time ago

Star Star Star Star Star

by bruno27 on Jun. 13, 2014

nc you are right I just called the wild life office and they explain me why you are aloud to you smelt im spray lake because they are salt bait . the officer had a really good explanation and if anybody have any further concern just call this number and they will explain it to you 1 403 591 6309 .smelt and sardine are both aloud at spray lake good luck everybody

by bruno27 on Jun. 13, 2014

are you talking about lake champlain in quebec by chance

Star Star Star Star Star

by Cajed1 on Jun. 13, 2014

Since when are smelt salt water?? It's the main thing they ice fish for on Lake Champlain.

Star Star Star Star Star

by NC on Jun. 13, 2014

And I'm guessing Houston1 has never been to spray, as almost everyone uses smelt for bait

Star Star Star Star Star

by NC on Jun. 13, 2014

Houston1, smelts are actually not illegal as they are considered salt water fish, I was just checked by a conservation officer yesterday at the lake and he was saying this, it is illegal to use any type of freshwater bait fish, such as minnows, the conservation officer even looked at my bait and said it was good, you CAN use smelt, they are NOT illegal, but thanks a lot for misinforming everyone

by Houston1 on Jun. 13, 2014

Smelts are illegal as they are considered bait fish. Don't use them unless you want to pay a huge fine.

by iFish Guest on Jun. 13, 2014

Do not use any type of bait fish, including smells. It is illegal.

Star Star Star Star Star

by bruno27 on Jun. 12, 2014

okay thank a lot for the info and im going there monday to wednesday with my boat hopefully I do good to do you know any other good spot on the lake and hoe big they get in there 25 pound ich

Star Star Star Star Star

by NC on Jun. 12, 2014

Half smelt just means a smelt cut in half, a head and tail section of one, (make sure you don't use minnows, it's illegal) the frozen smelts that you can buy in a bag at superstore would be good, if you can't find them there go to Canadian tire they always have some frozen in there bait fridge as well, but Canadian tire is more expensive, by the way I was at spray today again and caught 3 decent sized lakers and lost a bunch in the same spot

by bruno27 on Jun. 12, 2014

might sound stupid but im going there next week and just wondering what you guys mean by half smelt or whatever it is help will be appreciated thank you

Star Star Star Star Star

by Flagada on Jun. 12, 2014

I was out yesterday caught 6 lakers in 3 hours. 2 big, 2 medium and 2 small. I went on the campground side where the little island is ( by the end of the campground) half a smelt is definitely your best bet. No need to be fancy, a hook and a weight is pretty much all you need. Cast as far as you can and reel slowly.

by bruno27 on Jun. 9, 2014

thank nc I will post if I do good next monday and tuesday

Star Star Star Star Star

by NC on Jun. 9, 2014

People were launching boats at driftwood, the lake is pretty low so you can't launch off the cement pads, you have to drive down further, but people were having no problems launching, you can use orange or white jigs with half a small smelt and you'll do good, you can also use a 3 way swivel and a plain hook on one side and then a sinker on the other side, same bait with this rig (half small smelt)

by bruno27 on Jun. 8, 2014

I will be going there for my first time next week and was wondering if the boat launch is made of cement or its a natural boat launch and just for help what good to use to catch lakers on the lake spoon jig thank for the info

Black/red or black/white flies tipped with maggots will work for mt. whites.

Star Star Star Star Star

by GS1 on Feb. 13, 2014

I'm also looking to find some areas with mountain whites... driftwood or sparrowhawk be a better bet? What color/flies would be best?

Star Star Star Star Star

by MattyO on Feb. 12, 2014

I figured that would be the way to check the depth, without a depth finder. Thanks for answering all of my questions!

Star Star Star Star Star

by Fishholic on Feb. 12, 2014

Hi MattyO The easiest and fastest way will be using depth/fish finder. If you don't have one, you can try this way. It will take longer than using electronics, but it will work. First you drop your line all the way to the bottom and walk away from the hole and count how many steps it take and you will get approximate depth.

Star Star Star Star Star

by MattyO on Feb. 12, 2014

Fishholic, I appreciate the reply back! We will definitely try out driftwood and post results upon returning. One other quick question, how do you know what depth you are at? I do not have any type of technology to help me out... thanks

Star Star Star Star Star

by Fishholic on Feb. 11, 2014

Hello iFish I was going to ask same question too.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Fishholic on Feb. 11, 2014

Hi MattyO Yes the direction you wrote is correct. Once you take the exit from hwy#1, follow the sign for 742. And yes there are signs for driftwood and sparrow hawk. No you can't drive any motorized vehicle. Only Walk on the ice. Driftwood has better/easier access with heavy sled. I also had better luck near drift wood. Just look for 70+ ft south west from the boat launch.

Star Star Star Star Star

by iFish Guest on Feb. 11, 2014

How long does the ice stay on at spary.

Star Star Star Star Star

by MattyO on Feb. 11, 2014

I am planning on going fishing next week at Spray Lakes. Driving from Calgary I take highway 1, take a left on Three Sisters Pkwy, and follow that all the way to Spray Lake, correct? Once I get to the lake are their signs along the road that inform me where Driftwood and SparrowHawk are? Can we drive on the ice or do we have to walk on? And if there is a better spot to fish, which one would it be? I am bringing out a few beginners and would like to land a few Lakers! Lots of questions, thanks in advance for the help! - MattyO

Hi Anna I usually fishin for Lakers since I can catch lots of mt. whites from bow river up stream. Try little shallower water right on the bottom with flies and maggots. Can't wait to go for fishin on tues day again.

Star Star Star Star Star

Star Star Star Star Star

by Fishholic on Feb. 5, 2014

Hi Anna I have full size pick up and Rav4. The road to the lake usually well groomed. I saw compact sedan (corolla) was running good. Your Rav4 will be more than enough. As long as you keep the speed 40-50km/h or slower, you will be fine.

Star Star Star Star Star

by anna_91 on Feb. 4, 2014

I've been to spray over the summer. The road to get there was very poor. I don't have a pickup. Just an SUV (Rav4). Is it possible to access this lake at this time now that there's ice and snow?

Saturday, January 25th from 8:00am till noon. No slush yet! Lake is covered with 6" of dry/packed snow which helps with traction. Beautiful clear, calm,sunny winter's day. Just before the sunlight hit the ice surface, the lake trout started biting at a good pace. Had two rods on the go. Could of caught more if I wasn't having to run back & forth. Caught & released twelve in total. Mostly small 9" to 12"s lakers. The biggest being 16 & 18"s.

Had a good day just off of Driftwood today, iced 3 nice lakers (one 17 inch) and lost one nice one as well, there was around 16 inches of ice with about an inch or 2 of slush (more so near shore) and then about 4-5 inches of snow, there was a rather large patch of open water close to the dam and what looked like very weak ice all around it, I wouldn't venture any closer to the dam than driftwood at this time.

Was out at Driftwood on Jan 12th from 10:00am till 1:30pm. Fished in 80 to 90ft of water. Beautiful day. Very windy at times with blowing snow. Had a dozen bites or so. Kept two 16"s for supper. There's a good 6" to a foot of snow that's covering the lake. If the warmer temps continue, lower layer of snow will turn into slush. Ice is still around a foot thick. If you don't have a shelter, bring along a snow shovel, as many people are doing and build yourself a snow wall. Might come in handy if you need to dig your or someone else's vehicle out of the snow bank. Smith-Dorrien Spray road crews continue to do a great job clearing and sanding the road. Heading back next Saturday.

Can u drive onto the lake?

Star Star Star Star Star

by iFish Guest on Jan. 2, 2014

Here's a little advice for those who are having a difficult time figuring out Spray lakes Reservoir. I admit, I am not a pro but I do get lucky most of the time. Every time I head out, I like to try a spot a little away from the crowds. Today, I fished at least 300M from where I was fishing two days ago near Sparrowhawk. Always fishing between 70 to 100ft of water. Used superstore smelt that I thawed on the drive up. Full or half cut piece of smelt rigged on a single white headed jig was working best for me. Tie a swivel a foot above your jig head to prevent your line from twisting. It will give it a better "life like" presentation as well. Let your line slowly drop to the bottom, pausing now & then as it descents. Once it reaches the bottom wait a couple of minutes. Don't let go of your rod as sometimes hits are rare and few. If you haven't had a hit in a couple of minutes, don't let your line sit there, jig, pause, reel it back up half way, drop it again slowly to the bottom. Repeat five times. Retrieve and check to see if you still have bait on. Haven't caught fish for 20 minutes or so? Try a new location at least 50ft away. Today, I had a dozen or so "hits & misses", including one on a 5" smelt as it was on it's way down. Caught & released 7 borderline keepers today. Hope you all had a great day like I did. Enjoy.

by iFish Guest on Dec. 31, 2013

I was out New Year's eve day between 9:30 am and 12:30 pm. Fished in 80 ft of water, just south of Sparrowhawk. One group of five or so was doing pretty well. I must of counted at least 20 times they cheered when they pulled on in. I caught & released 6 smaller lake trout. Weather was a tad better than it has been. Roads are in good winter driving condition.

by Mullen1989 on Dec. 29, 2013

Out on the lake today. First time in spray and landed two smaller lakers. Maybe 16". Caught on pink tube and buzz bomb. Maybe 70-80' at driftwood. Beautiful day if it wasn't for the wind.

Star Star Star Star Star

by NC on Dec. 28, 2013

Daix, i usually use a small smelt on a yellow jighead and fish in around 100FT of water, when you are heading up I would go just past the sparrowhawk sign and you will see guys parked at the side of the road, just go out to around the middle of the lake and that should put you at the right depth, good luck NC

Iced 3 small lakers this morning with the nephews, had a few more hits that we missed as well. Ice was 6" near the shore just south of sparrowhawk and 5" further out about 300m where we stopped and setup as I am nervous with any thinner ice so we didn't get quite far out as I would have liked and fished in 50' FOW instead. Ice is clear and hard, two other groups out near us, one braved it further out as well. -Boots

Ice fishing Is GREAT here, I would recommend going just past sparrowhawk and parking on the side of the road ( you will see people parked where I'm talking about ) I usually go out far enough to fish in 100 ft of water, use a yellow/orange jig or a white jig and drop it all the way to bottom and reel up a few, tip it with either a half or whole smelt doesn't really matter, you will almost definitely get some fish

by scordz on Sep. 17, 2013

Mid july through mid august was great. The past 2-3 weeks have slowed up big time. However we did catch a couple last weekend which makes me think this weekend will pick up.

by iFish Guest on Sep. 9, 2013

Tried fishing from shore by end if campground side on Sept. 7 used smelts and jigs from about 3-6:30pm and no bites. Next day tried over at the drop off location in the day use area end of the campground past the gates from 3:30-6:30pm used same stuff and only one bite but got away. A father and son leaving the spot where we set up were there for 2 hours caught one laker with smelt.

Alright, finally breaking down and giving away some of my secrets for one of the finest lake trout lakes on all of the Rockies! A boat is must for catching lots. Your not going to slay the lake from shore sorry. 60 ft of water is what your looking for when in ur boat. Glow in the dark jigs are the only thing me and my fellas use. Half smelt, full smelt doesn't really matter. However some days you'll find the tail works better than the head and vice a versa. You decide. If your fishing from sure than a pickerel rig is your best bet, or drag a glow in the dark jig across the bottom. Anywhere along the campground side is going to hold fish for those on shore. The further down the better. I park at the end and walk down. There's nice drop off's there! Enough said. Go fish!!!!

Star Star Star Star Star

by NC on May. 29, 2013

Try using half smelt on small plain hooks all the way on bottom, or yellow/orange jig head with half smelt on bottom, there is not very many big fish in spray but you will probably catch lots of 16 to 18 inches, Hope this helps NC

2 of us fished Friday out in the middle at Drfitwood. About 20 to 30' of water has been drained! Slooow day, 1 small hammer handle and about 10 soft bites. Saw a solo angler across from us close to the opposite shore. Ice is solid at Drfitwood and eastward, about 16 plus inches, not honeycombing yet. You can see the river channel near the dam. If your heading out, would do it soon. Tight lines, Buddhameister. P.S. beauuuutiful day out yesterday.

They are calling for 10 to 15cms of snow for Saturday, April 20th. That's just enough snow to hide those hazards such as thin ice near the shoreline. I would advise everyone else thinking of heading out to Spray lakes to take extreme caution before walking on the ice. My fishing buddies and I have pulled the plug on ice fishing Spray lakes reservoir till next year. Be safe.

Was up at Spray Lakes today (April 6th) just north of Sparrowhawk. Huge change since Easter Monday. Five days ago, ice was rock hard and 2 1/2 feet thick. Break-up is near. The ice today was saturated, soft, two feet thick and super easy to cut through with a manual auger. Roads are fair/good. Watch for small rocks,potholes and some washboard. Fishing was fair for lake trout(6) and RMW(9).

Just contacted F&W office to see if Wally1's comment was related to water depth that fish can be taken from. Fortunately for us, it is not. He does have a good point though about understanding & interpreting the regs. Thanks for the comment. I've asked F&W to post a comment on this topic in the app. Don't know if they will...

Star Star Star Star Star

by Wally1 on Feb. 26, 2013

Best to check with fish and wildlife. Everyone should read important changes in fishing regs every year almost 12 months since regs came out and no one seems to read the regs and UNDERSTAND them.

Star Star Star Star Star

by iFish Guest on Feb. 24, 2013

Wally1, you've got to be kidding me. That would basically kill all ice fishing for lakers (not only at Spray) but pretty much everywhere. Are you certain?

Star Star Star Star Star

by iFish Guest on Feb. 24, 2013

Wally1: Does that mean that we can only catch and keep a fish that was caught in 5 meters or less of water?

Star Star Star Star Star

Page 4 important changes under general -in order to reduce harm to fish, the distance that live fish can be taken from a water body has been reduced to 5 meters.

Was out today, we started fishing around 9am and caught 7 lake trout all over 15 inches. One I think around 20 inches. We kept 3 fish. All fish were caught on a yellow/orange or white Jighead a couple reels off bottom in 100ft of water, we were just past the Sparrowhawk sign, the bite really died down around 10am so we stayed a little longer till around 11am, and then we packed up and headed to lower kananaskis lake but didn't catch anything there.

jm_ram, try going just past sparrowhawk next time you are out, fish in 100ft of water with a white or yellow/orange jighead and half of a small smelt, I usually catch ALOT more there than I do near driftwood, make sure you get to the lake EARLY in the morning though around 8ish

Star Star Star Star Star

by jm_ram on Jan. 25, 2013

New to the Calgary area and found this lake and wanted to give it a try. Went out this morning and the biting was slow. But still managed to ice a couple lakers, each 16 inches. Fished south west of Driftwood. Wish this lake was closer for me. Good day of fishing

Hall&Oats: Try driftwood. 80-100 yds out from the shoreline. SW in direction. You should see previously drilled holes. Use a 1/4-1/8 white jig head, with just a smelt head. 1 foot off bottom. Sometimes they'll pick it up on the way down. Jig lightly. Pause between jigs. You should get a couple small ones, but it's better than nothing. Let us know how you do. Best of luck!

Star Star Star Star Star

by Hall&Oats on Jan. 20, 2013

Good to hear that some of you got fish. The guy next to us on Saturday caught a couple as well. According to his sonar there was plenty of fish below but they weren't biting. We fished in 80' of water. Going back in a few weeks to give it another try. If that doesn't work, we'll start going to fish counselling classes! :)

Star Star Star Star Star

Went out today caught 3 keepers on jigs and smelts, biggest was 16.5 inches, I caught 2 more and released them, visited a group of 3 other guys and they caught 9 keepers and were getting a lot more bites, i think they released some as well, almost all of there's were 16.5 inches and they were using the same setup as me

Went out yesterday and it was chilly for sure, fishing was slow. Between the six of us in six hours only landed three lakers the biggest being 14" but it was a great day regardless. We had a lot of bites but couldn't capitalize on them, smaller hooks next time maybe?

Star Star Star Star Star

Hey Chimba, what depth did you get the whites at? close to shore? My prettier half and I got two laker keepers out in the middle yesterday morning but it was fairly slow all morning with fewer on camera than last few weeks. Would love to catch some whites up there but don't know were in the lake to fish for them.

by Hall&Oats on Jan. 7, 2013

chimba, Good to hear you had better luck than us. Amazing to see all of those kite skiers at SparrowHawk. Sure entertaining to see them ripping by at 60kms/hr then getting a ton of air time. Witnessed some pretty nasty wipe-outs. Must of been thirty of them. Maybe that's why we weren't catching anything. We were too busy watching our backs! lol

Sparrow-hawk area: ice 60 cm thick, 4 of us, 8 to 3 pm, different baits, 3 white and 3 trout no more than 40 cm, 50" deep but the fish finder was saying a lot of fish in the area, anyway lots of fun

Four of us headed out Saturday to the Driftwood day area from 9:20am till 1:00pm. According to the CO that stopped in for a visit at noon, the area gets a lot of fishing pressure and nobody had been having any luck. Packed our gear and moved over to SparrowHawk. Eventhough we got skunked, we still had a great time. Planning to go back in a few weeks.

Star Star Star Star Star

by JohnnyD on Jan. 5, 2013

A few bites but only brought one to the hole in 3 hours on the ice, maybe someone will catch him again when he's bigger. A couple guys next to me caught three between them out of a full day, but another group of guys had no luck. Forgot to measure the ice but I'd guess it was a bit more than a foot thick, at the far north end by the dam. Look at the bottom of page 21 in the regs (and top of page 22) for a detailed definition of bait fish. Smelt and herring are specifically mentioned as OK (i.e., they are not considered to be bait fish by the regs). For the most part, bait fish are fresh water fish like suckers, minnows, etc. that game fish would normally prey on.

Star Star Star Star Star

by StoneFly on Jan. 5, 2013

I was reading the regs and bait is allowed but smelts is one of the only bait fish allowed. Heading out tomorrow and wondering if anyone has had luck using maggots or worms for whitefish?

Star Star Star Star Star

by chimba on Jan. 5, 2013

Thanks NC, maybe cause smelts are not fresh water fish

Star Star Star Star Star

I don't know why they aren't considered baitfish, everybody uses them in spray because they are one of the only baits that is allowed

Hey Boots - did have a couple of bites on jig tipped with shrimp, but only a few... Seem to have the most production when tipped with smelt. I dunno, I use shrimp in any other lake with Rainbows or Cutts. Maybe these guys are just too much like scavengers and are looking for the larger kill when they have a choice?

Tried out camera at spray yesterday, was able to watch probably 2 dozen fish chech out the jig but only landed 2 and lost 2. The ones flying by quickly were the biters but many more cruising around slowly checking out the jig but not taking a taste. Hey Buddhameister, did you actually get a bite on the shrimp? I Always wondered if they would take shrimp as most of them in spray are full of those tiny opossum shrimp when you chech their gut.

Fished about 400 meters from boat launch near dam, 'bout 65 feet of water. Bites were intermittent but when they came on was lots of action for short intervals of time.

Ice@driftwood is. about a foot. Boxing day fishing was slow for most. Whites were more active @ driftwood. C.O said lakers were being taken past sparrow hawk.

I fished for 1 hour. No bites, but I do not know the lake. A local had several fish, ways from me. Said he used smelt and a white hook.
