Anyone catching here? I'm wanting to take my son to catch some jacks. Any info would be appreciated.
by BigTiny on Jan. 25, 2017
I have major success with an orange 1/2 ounce or 3/8 jig head and a white rubber worm with a flat tail. Not sure what they are called. But regardless they seem to hammer it every time.
by Tack Man on Jan. 22, 2017
Try smelts on a leader/treble hook. 6-12 ft of water. I recently started trying frozen anchovies. The pike are fatter than last winter so I'm using bigger bait.
by Goforgillie on Jan. 21, 2017
Can I ask what everyone is using for bait? I have been there a few times and I have fish on the flasher but can't get them to bite. Any help would be great. I have used jigs, jig spoon and rotating power minnow with maggots

Went out last night. Didnt go too far down the lake,caught two small pike,had fun. Certainly some weeds,would like some tips on catching perch there.

Went out for a few hours last night. Caught 5 in total nothing big enough to brag about but still nice to get out. Weeds are bad at the shore but if you have a bout fishing can be good!
by Donnie D on Jul. 17, 2016
unless you go out in a boat then dont bother going fishing here..fishing from the shore was a night mare..to much weeds and no bites...weed,s are out of control here

Casted from shore for a few hours, tried 6 or so spots, no hits. Weeds are out of control
by CrazyPhD on Jun. 23, 2016
Was there last Saturday. The lake smelt bad and it was unpleasant fishing there. Also the weed was prohibitively a lot. But two weeks ago it was another story. Landed six pike of about 50 cm in two hours with my friend where the culvert was.
by Whsman on Jun. 22, 2016
Disgusting weeds and algae ... Launched my kayak from the north end, it way disgusting and even smelled bad. Dirt bags at the boat launch! Dont go!!

by harveyhvac on Jun. 5, 2016
Also make sure you have your whistle, bailing bucket, flash light etc... in your boat. There was a ranger on a jet ski checking everyone.
Didn't see your tackle there, had a great day out yesterday though. Me and buddies spent 12 hours on the water and caught between 80 and 90 pike. The entire lake was a hot spot. Best day ever. Most of them were around 20"
by Tack Man on May. 29, 2016
Left behind 2 tackle boxes on the North Shore on Friday. One brown/beige Plano about a hundred years old with some spoons and some buzz bombs and some Len Thompson lures. Also had a airplane lure that's vintage. Other tackle box is a blue organizer with a clear lid. But if JB Weld where it cracked. Had my leaders and some lures in it. Plano also had a small organizer with several spinners including Panther Martins. If ya found em I hope they bring you lots of fish.

I think the fish has migrated to the south part of the lake. I spent the whole morning last Tuesday and 2 hours of the evening last Friday and had only 1 bite. I am hesitant to go again. What do you guys think? Do the fish leave the north side at this time of the year
by Rusty1 on Sep. 2, 2015
I fish west side of lake mainly,catch quite a few but to small to keep. I use Len. Thompson spoons mainly light color. On this lake most weekends,enjoyable . Happy fishing!!

by Haitham on Aug. 31, 2015
There was some action but we could not catch a fish. I guess the fishes in this lake are not as many as they used to be. What do you think guys?

There are big ones, caught 2 63's, and 1 70cm off north shore two weeks ago, kept and enjoyed on the bbq
by Alco on May. 31, 2015
Fished for about 3.5 hours today from the boat and got 16 pike. I don't keep them but 4 were likely keeper size. Launched at the north end. Stuck to the east side as there was less algae. Great day!
by Johnny K on May. 28, 2015
Caught 5 pike today right by the boat launch, had to release all because they were under size, biggest around 50 cm I think... Are there bigger ones in the lake at all? And what about perch?
by Tshort1421 on May. 16, 2015
North side shore fishing, excellent for beginners and kids, tons of action. Small pike, under size but a bite on every second or third cast, caught 9 in 2 hours
by Mk107 on May. 16, 2015
haven't been to coal in a few years, since kid was born. Water level ok?, how's shore casting conditions? He's 3.5 yrs, don't trust him in the boat yet, even with a life jacket. He's pretty good though, 15-20' casts. Lol
by dylanbmx on May. 16, 2015
I clip barbs on every hook I own. I thought it was law to clip them? either way it gives the little guys (releases) a better chance without ripping their mouths and gills to pieces.
by Clazel1 on May. 14, 2015
And it can be more of a challenge to land the fish too!
by Trapper on May. 14, 2015
If you are into catch and release barbless is the only way to go
by Riverbear on May. 14, 2015
There is no "barbless" rule currently. Not saying it's doesn't help the fish but still.
by Mk107 on May. 12, 2015
I find more and more people not clipping barbs
by oggie on May. 3, 2015

by Kevin788 on Apr. 3, 2015
Checked out coal last weekend, river on south side was open, so we decided to do some open water fishing, went to bridge in gwynn, there wad chicken wire on both sides of bridge, right across shore to shore not sure how deep but from what i could see it went all the way down, was wondering if anybody knows why its there? Seems to me it would be cutting off a spawning run!
by WildCats on Mar. 11, 2015
Thunderstorm, that was in the 90's. The pike population exploded for a few years and perch have been all but non existent since.
by nmfp on Mar. 1, 2015
My wife and I are out on east side of the lake out bye the point. 4 fish on the ice and lots of bites! Just got a bite while typing this!
by Thunderstorm on Feb. 21, 2015
my understanding is there is perch in coal lake. I talked to dozens of people who have caught plenty of perch in coal. They are what everybody calls jumbo. One of the guys that lives by the lake told me he's caught lots of 9-10" perch. Alberta fishing guide says it has perch and pike. Now I haven't caught any my self but I know in the summer time my fish finder Is loaded with groups of fish all the time.
by kelster on Feb. 19, 2015
There is NO perch in coal lake
by Thunderstorm on Feb. 19, 2015
I fish at the north side of the lake anywhere from once a week up to 3-4 times a week. I have only caught pike but others have gotten perch. I usually get 2-4 each time. Nothing big YET lol. As for north side of the highway it's my favorite spot in the summer lol
by FlounderPounder on Feb. 17, 2015
We were out on the north end 3 weeks ago and talked to a conservation officer who was out checking licences. He said that people fish north of the highway in the summer and catch pike. I've never seen anyone there, but apparently there are fish!
by Brett_irwin on Feb. 16, 2015
Hey guys, just wondering how the fishing is at this lake? And also where to fish? And if anyone was able to find the perch. Also if anyone knows if there are any fish in the little pond across the highway? Thanks any Info would be greatly appreciated

by DMuns on Aug. 10, 2014
Those carp like fish you saw were just suckers. Most lakes have them but they do not have a game fish status so there is no limit on them (I wouldn't eat them) but they also don't ever report on them
by Alco on Jul. 27, 2014
Got 3 pike in 2 hours of mid-morning fishing. Largest about 3 pounds. Algae bloom is very heavy. We trolled the north end quite a ways off shore.
by KodiG on Jul. 12, 2014
This might sound a bit bizarre but just fished past the dam on the camping area and we were seeing a carp like sucker fish 3 and 4 schooling together in the shallower water and we didn't recognize the fish, they were at least 4 pounds a piece. I was just wondering why these fish were not listed on the lakes fish habitants
by Pikster on Jun. 15, 2014
Fishinng along shore is a bit slow, but a nice area regardless. I don't hear much about good perch fishing in this lake. I noticed a limit of five.

There have been times when this lake is on fire with the pike biting good- usually early may. But the last 3 times I've gone out, we threw everything but the kitchen sink out there and would only come up with one, maybe two if we were lucky. Won't be returning until spring.

We went out for 4 hrs today just a ways off the north boat launch I pulled out three just under 24 inches and one about 38 inches it's was a good day. Lots of people out but that wind was cold.
by iFish Guest on Feb. 18, 2013
Fished for about 5-6 hours, used minnows for bait. Saw lots of pike in the 18" and up range, stalking my bait but no bites.
by iFish Guest on Feb. 12, 2013

No bites on the east side at the very north end. Ice thickness was 13" to 20" depending on where you were. No flood water, hard packed snow. Easy access with a truck. Someone even drove on with a Honda accord
by Pat on Jan. 9, 2013

by Loops loop on Dec. 30, 2012
The ice is decent in spots ! I was on sled yesterday and there are open spots where I was thankful for sled! Don't want to lose truck or pay recovery bill!
by Nelzy69 on Dec. 29, 2012
Anyone know how thick ice is on coal lake?
by RSEN on Dec. 28, 2012
Went out for a few hours today, 2 small pike and a few bites. Want to get on the perch but they are sure far and few between.
by Pikemaster on Dec. 15, 2012

by Jay on Dec. 13, 2012

Ice 8 inches 3 fish out of the hole 8 ft water can see to bottom awesome
by Dirtydross on Nov. 15, 2012
Somebody should just blow this lake up. It's garbage don't waste your time.
by Diksmack on Sep. 17, 2012
Major algae bloom over the Sept 15th weekend. Still caught a few pike. Threw them all back so I could catch them next time
by St.Albert Tom on Sep. 14, 2012
Was out there on Sept. 9 around the south end and what a disappointment. Nothing but weeds and smelt like a compost dump/sewer.
by MiloFHead on Sep. 3, 2012
Nice little lake. Saw plenty of action from shore fishers at the north boat launch. Will be checking it out again.
by Greenbastard on Aug. 21, 2012
Carefull with the boat launch on the north end of the lake. I wasn't able to launch my boat because of large rocks & low water level. A 12ft aluminum should have no problems but a large fishing boat like mine...probably not. 👎
by Ed on Aug. 19, 2012
Pulled 18 little pike out in 3 hours today. None worth keeping but it made for a nice day out with the kids
by Derekc89 on Aug. 12, 2012

by Jonalf on Jul. 27, 2012
You need a boat to fish here. Lots of vegetation near the shore no luck on south or north side of lake.
by Blackwatch on Jul. 14, 2012
Large fish jumping, looked like 6 pound trout, no idea what they were but they wouldn't take spinners before they all leftView on Map
by Seamax Ed on Jul. 8, 2012
Algee bloom so bad 4 hrs not even a nibble still better than work

by Dice on Jul. 1, 2012

by Birddog on Jun. 27, 2012

by Klpockett on Jun. 18, 2012

Wow Welder78 this happened to our dog last year but at Alix lake...hope you get some leads..and hope your dog makes it...our dog barely made it
by Welder78 on Jun. 3, 2012
This morning my dog was attacked while we were fishing with my kids on the north shore. The woman whos dogs attacked ran off and wouldn't give me her name. Any info would be extremely helpful. She is a brunette who jogs with her dogs frequently. The dogs r husky cross and there was four of them. I will pay for any info that leads me to the location of this woman and her dogs. My kids r very upset and I am at the vet hospital getting my dogs neck stitched up. Thank u for your help.
by Spitpimp on Jun. 2, 2012
Ya the boaters were found one of them was my friends little brother it's a sad story RIP EJ, On a happier note I found the best times for pike are I the evening around 6 and I've never much had luck on the perch In the summer they are good catchin in the winter though.
by Seamax Eddie on May. 28, 2012

by Jd on May. 27, 2012
I caught 9 and my buddy caught 3 in 6 hour all but two were to small to keep but at least we caught a few all on the north side. Any one know if there was any sign of the missing boaters yet??
by Ann on May. 26, 2012
Great day 5 hours 10 fish caught. No keepers, but great action!
by Rico on May. 26, 2012
I fished the north east area for 3 hours today and did not catch anything. Used spoons, jigs and rapala and nothing. Very nice lake tho
by David on May. 26, 2012
Caught one small one in 3 hours. Kind of slow for this time of year.
by Nick on May. 21, 2012
Canoed the north east edge for 2 hours and caught 5 jack. No keepers though, I've never been able to pull one out of that lake.
Neither boater has been found yet.
by Nick on May. 20, 2012

by Jeff on Jan. 30, 2012
Fishing is really slow this year, last year they where hitting everything and this year not much happening. Fished a few different spots but not much luck.
Well still hoping they will start biting.
Thanks, best of luck to all
by JohnnyD on Jan. 29, 2012
Four of us fishing for three hours, no bites. Used 8" smelt for bait, no sign of pike. I also fished a second line for perch with PowerBait maggots, no luck.
by Transonicwolf on Jan. 10, 2012
Big jack. A lot of perch. Prime spotView on Map
by Stalin on Jan. 3, 2012
Well coal is getting better. If you are going to go its best between 9 and 1. I was out at 5am and didn't get a hit until 8:30 ish. After that I had 6 more and then at like 12-12:30 they shut off again and I didn't get a hit for the rest of the afternoon. Fished in about 10 feet of water closer to shore
by Slayer on Dec. 24, 2011
Yeah Coal was dissapointing to say the least. Ice is plenty thick enough though roughly 12 inches give or take a inch. The fishing was slowwwww however. No one else was catching anything either. I know last year it was wicked so maybe the afternoon is the wrong time. Morning or evening might be better
by MookyMcMookerson on Dec. 23, 2011
Ice is 13" think. Drove across entire lake in 4 door wrangler. Seen a f350 on here also. Slow fishing still this early. Better odds right at sunrise.
by Trapper on Dec. 10, 2011
Fishing was a bit slow, only got a few bites for the whole day. 10-12" of ice. Don't suggest driving a car just yet, quads or sleds ok
by Tylerf150 on Oct. 23, 2011
Went out today only cought one.one of the biggest I ever seen come out of there 18lbs
by Papirus on Oct. 17, 2011

by Jack tripper on Aug. 12, 2011

by Tex on Aug. 1, 2011
Wow what a day at the dame good fishing I haven't been there yet and not caught a fish
by DMoney on Jul. 6, 2011
I go out to coal a few times a week from the shore on the east side of the lake and always have great luck as long as you can get them through the weeds... I laugh at ppl on the Alberta outdoorsmen site who say shore fishing is over there... Hahahaha
by Stupid jonboat on Jun. 27, 2011
3 boats out for 3 hours in the evening. Only 2 fish caught between all of us. Lake is full of algae (even more than usual). Some speed boats around in the evenings.
