Hi everyone, have never fished this lake but have heard various reports. As well as read on here. Lots on ice fishing. How is the fishing during August and September? Average fish (smaller pike and walleye) being caught? I am not looking for honey holes as I enjoy searching the lake to see what a person can find. Just curious what quality of fish a person can find. Thanks for any feedback or updates.

Too much snow to travel, with warm temperatures now the ice will start to honeycone, be very carefull. I wouldn't recommend driving on it

Hey Nicky6. I've had lots of luck with 1/2 oz jig heads with worms, minnows, or leaches. Usually in around 16 - 20 ft of water and jig about 2-6 inches off the bottom. This has caught both walleye and pike.

Consistent fishing in 6-12 fow, good size walleye and pike. Never disappointed here. Simple jig and pb minnow will produce.

Are you allowed motorized boats on this lake. ????

by Bemoredog on Mar. 5, 2017

Was out again March 3 from 4 til 10pm. Saw Walleye and Pike on camera before sundown. No burbot though. Fished all around islands and near southeast outlet. Nothing!!! Are the burbs gone??? Do they spawn in January? Might try up at north end one time and then I'm giving up.

by mapman_yyc on Mar. 4, 2017

Was out Thursday night over night after burbot. Fished north of campground, various spots by east islands and by campground. No bites all night. Didn't matter, beautiful -6 night with barbequed deer meat, no wind, ice booming, coyotes howling and northern lights.

Updates help. There's still a bunch of wrong regs at places afterwards though.

Mine is correct, you need to make sure you hit the check for updates on the more page

No walleye or pike can be kept. This app is TERRIBLE for regs. They'll have the same errors posted for years. Use albertaregulations.ca

by Piketaker89 on Jan. 27, 2017

So in the regs on here it states that you can keep pike but everyone is saying no keeping allowed ? Someone want to explain please..
