Fished it for 3 days and not even a bite! Didn't see any breaching either! This was mid June 2020.

Was there June 12. Trolled for 3 hours with 4 different flies and 4 different lures through all depths and most of the lake. Not a bite and no sign of any fish. Dozens of shore fishermen and did not see any fish caught. Beautiful little lake otherwise!!

This trout pond is dead. Two hours on there with no rise rings, not bites, and marked what may have been two fish on the sonar. It's dead....don't waste your time.

Does this lake winter kill? Went out couple weeks ago and nothing but minnows in the hole. Then tried couple days ago, no minnows and no fish......?

Went out yesterday. Talked to someone who put a camera down to the bottom and said they saw 5-6 dead fish at the bottom. Tried for 45 minutes anyway but nothing. Not good if it winter killed. Let's hope there was some kind of survival rate.

Good 6-7%u201D of ice, caught a couple rainbows but super tiny. Anyone know which part of the lakes are best for keepers?

Spent three hours out here today, nothing was biting. Saw lots jumping and some birds grabbing some big ones so there are fish in here, just too hot I think. Try to find a spot with no weeds on the shore, otherwise you're cleaning your hook every single cast!

Went out there and spent most of the day there from 9:00 AM to about 2:30 PM. Saw nothing on my Marcum to indicate any fish at all. No nibbles, nothing! Used a variety of hooks with raw shrimp for bait, tungsten jigs, Wabler, tiny jigging Rapala. Went there last week also, nothing! Won't be going there again!

Tried for 3 hours fly rod no bites. Used dingy to troll with leach all around the lake without seeing a fish rise. Are there fish in this lake? Water is pretty murky.

Went out for a couple hours but no luck. Fish weren't jumping or biting. Tried multiple worms, and spoons with power bait but didn't work. Ever since the lake was stocked a couple weeks ago it's been really hot so I'm guessing their all at the bottom some where

Was out at Black Nugget Lake yesterday evening and is now free from ice for the most part.No luck on spin cast or fly rod, a few started rising about 8pm.Vehicle access through campground enterence only.

The gate to the lake is still locked so you will need to walk all your gear from the small parking lot off the West side. I was out yesterday and no luck. Saw some small ones on the camera but nothing good. I know this lake was fished hard last winter so not sure how many mature fish are left.

Are you still able to drive in from the West off the road up to the lake edge or do you have to walk in from the road?

I also saw several other catching. Happily tell people "my secrets"when they ask on the lake.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Cajed1 on Jul. 27, 2017

Not likely,or there will be no fish left for me to catch.

Perhaps you care to share your secret with us. As I said there were lots of people fishing and nobody cought even 1 fish. And I was using flies that never failed me on several other trout habitats.

Nailing both rainbows and tigers the last 2 night, decent fishing you just have to know when and where they are likely to be and what they want to eat.

Just got back yesterday. I have a Zebec (same as a Zodiac). Fished for 3 days with my son-inlaw. Both used various wet and dry flies. Floating line, sinking line (Fly fishing) and also several types of trout spinners and spoons on both fly and mono line. NOTHING. Several people were fishing both from shore and in boats. Nobody caught anything in the 3 days I was there. My GPS showed that there was several fish in the lake but they were not biting. Very poor, will not be back.

I didnt fish BMN at all last year. The year before they got mad and threatened to call the police if you were on their property. I wonder what changed.

by Donnie D on May. 7, 2017

A great evening at BNM. Water visibility was minimal but still landed a few. Attn to anyone going here, the main gates are closed you now much enter through the campground and sign in at the office. It is free but for some reason this is now how it is done.

Might drive from Edmonton this weekend. Anybody know if it is still ice-covered?

First time ice fishing for trout today and it was decent on this lake! The water was very murky. Tried with worms, shrimp, and orange power eggs. Seems that the fish were most interested in the latter. Was there all afternoon and caught a couple of smaller rainbows which were mostly released.
