Spent most of the day just to catch two jacks. Nice quiet lake but rough boat launch. Looks like they are working on it.

Local people - aboriginals drive antic snowmobiles close to fisherman's and scare you and all fish! Bad people up there and no fish bait anyways - of course!

Out today. Lots of ice about 7". Frustrating because I had lots of marks on finder in 14 feet of water but couldn't get them to bite. Beautiful day though

Note. Check your regulations. Jackfish Lake is closed due to the severe winter kill last year there is a zero catch limit.

It would be great if they were forced to leave the trees...there would be no problem. Their plan according to their Carvel Hall info session was to destroy about 40 metres deep of the land-side trees, leaving only 60 metres at the lake, and then allow the 30 new lots to cut down a swath of 10 metres or 10% of the width of each lot. Phoning the number is no good now, as they tell me to talk to the County. The mayor probably.

Won't affect them if the are FORCED to leave the trees and shrubbery lakeside otherwise all sorts of stuff will leech into the water without its buffer-zone. It's already happened at countless lakes province wide. Sure it's the likely cause of the massive winter kill here last winter as well as the partial kill 2 winters ago at Lac La Nonne.

Do you think the new proposed development will affect the fish? 75 lots (30 lakefront and 45 right behind) are proposed for our Jackfish Lake. The contact number to lodge an official government investigation is: 1-800-222-6514 if you care.

Just talked to Fish and Wildlife in Spruce and they have changed the regs if you didn't know. Due to the winter kill on this lake, it now has a keep limit on walleye, pike, berbot and perch of 0. Catch and release only for all levels species.

Was at Jackfish Friday, June 3, only fished for about an hour from 8:30pm-9:30pm. Caught 2 walleye over 2lbs from shore using a Rapala Rattletrap and a Reef Runner Cicada. Catch and release but good fun.

I accidentally posted to the wrong Jackfish Lake. I'm so dumb. My friend and I have been catching so many pike and walleye that we lose count every time we go. Please check out my postings on the other Jackfish Lake...sorry people.

Catch and release only for the lake this year. Low oxygen was cause of die off. Rough year last year it would seem. Low water everywhere. Now this.

It's a shame they let the residents do this . Specially during hot dry summers .

Star Star Star Star Star

by Remington4444 on Mar. 28, 2016

Water level is down because that let the residents pump water from it in the summer.

Hello Fisherman See the comments from the Alberta government, it sounds like more test will be done when ice is off. From: ESRD Info-Centre Date: Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at 4:04 PM To: Darcy Dupuis Subject: RE: Jackfish Lake Hello Mr. Dupuis, I have been in contact with the Seniors Fisheries Biologist for the area and the biologist are going to confirm this by hopefully coming out to do some testing within the next few days. It is the first occurrence that has been seen at this particular lake, in his experience. Unfortunately there has been a lot of development in this watershed which almost always leads to increased eutrophication and poorer water quality. However, it seems odd that it would occur in a mild winter like what we experienced this year. Hopefully with some testing they can determine what the cause may be. If you have further questions please feel free to contact: Stephen Spencer Senior Fisheries Biologist Environment and Parks Ph: (780) 960 8195; e-mail: Stephen.Spencer@gov.ab.ca Kind Regards, Dianne Gorday Information Officer Environment and Parks 9920-108 St Main Floor GWL Building Edmonton, AB T5K 2M4 Ph: 780-427-4795 Dianne.Gorday@gov.ab.ca
