Nice day out. Caught some pike around 2-4 lbs. 4 perch that were 11 inches. There are still some nice perch in the lake. Just find the spot and use small jigs with minnows.

Terrible lake you barely catch anything and when you do they are all under 63cm guaranteed. When I went out we only caught 2 fish between 6 people and we were out their for 6hrs or longer.

I h8 weeds. Where the parking lot is go left about 200 yards Infront of the second cabin about 60 yards from the shore. Little minnows on a single hook works amazing I was also using tip ups with large smelts and those work good too. A lot of fish are small yes but you get the off big fish 8-10lbs

Honestly don't waste your time with this lake the water dirty, its small, and not many fish the ones you do catch look like goldfish.

by Albertafisherman on Dec. 23, 2016

Went out today and was incredible. Fished for 3 hours with my buddy and together we caught 27 pike. Everyone on the ice today was catching fish non stop,most under legal size but still limited out with 3 nice keepers for each of us. Very fun and exciting fishing at this lake. Very easy and constant fish action. There was a couple guys by us also who caught afew nice size perch

Star Star Star Star Star

by Erim_Nelson on Dec. 22, 2016

Brought three pike up to surface today, all under legal size (I don't keep them anyway). Lost count of how many I saw on the camera. A few that looked to be around 5lbs. Saw a couple little perch, too small to catch.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Anthonie on Dec. 20, 2016

I went out with 3 guys and we caught 16 fish total. We caught them not to far from the parking lot/ boat launch. The ice is at 14 inches so it is thick enough to drive on but don't disrespectful and speed pass people fishing because it makes waves in the water and scares the fish away!!!

Star Star Star Star Star

There is no dock at the boat launch. You can put any motor in the water there. I've used electric trolling motor on a Jon boat and my 120hp gas motor.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Craig W. on Nov. 1, 2016

Whoops - my comment didn't seem to post correctly. Meant to ask if there's a dock, and secondly if small electric trolling motors are allowed here?

Can anybody confirm:_1) Whether or not there is a dock by the boat launch people mentioned at the northeast part of the lake

I'll answer my own question :) Ice was 18" and getting soft, but still easily supported my truck. Fishing was slow till 1/2 hr before sunrise, then flags went up... Landed about 8 small pike (6 lines in with me and two kids). No keepers, but we didn't get skunked.

Star Star Star Star Star

by ATVGuy on Feb. 3, 2016

Tried for 4 hours on Jan 31. Not even a bite. Very strange for this lake. It usually produces at least a couple 50 cm pike. I tried anchovies and shiner minnows for bait. Dead-stick and jigging.

8 pound slough shark yesterday and a bunch of other pike about 4-5 lbs. Try again today for the bigger one. And fishlips should stay at home and quit complaining about this lake. Go fish elsewhere and quit whining.

by charliesgirl on Jan. 23, 2016

I'm a smoker & I never leave butts laying around, they get packed out with me. I too used to take a white shopping bag along but I've since kept a large green one in the truck because it is totally disrespectful of our environment when you see the amount of garbage. Sadly if these people have children, they set bad examples. People need to realize that fishing is a privilege, not a right! The majority of people I've met fishing are genuinely interested in preserving the resource for our children's children. Remember that we all teach by example :) With that said, I wish everyone awesome hard water fishing! and remember to take a kid fishing :)

Would sure be nice to have a lake to go fishing at that is clean no thanks to some of the Fisher guys that are going out there and leave ing their garbage in and all around there hole on the ice cigarette butts and just plain garbage all over the ice I cleaned up a Safeway bag full have a little bit of respect people lake is for our convenience not just for you

Nemo77. The one that got away was a nice sized pike. Around 28-30" mark and had some girth. I think my line got cut on the side of the hole. He yanked hard right near the hole. Poof! He was gone.

I went yesterday from 8 till 3, I cought 7 pike and one burbot. I catch and release ! I was on the south end of the lake just east of the fishing shacks. I have a strong feeling that there is an under current from some where in this lake, on my flasher I saw heavy activity at about 15' non-stop and total depth was about 18'.

Star Star Star Star Star

by I h8 weeds on Jan. 15, 2016

Out for 3 hours. Steady action for the first two hours. Struggled to hook a few. Landed some 20" -22" pike and had a larger one break my line and take my favourite lure. Thanks for the tip on a great spot Nemo77.

Star Star Star Star Star

by I h8 weeds on Jan. 14, 2016

Thanks Nemo77. I'm headed there this Friday or Sunday. My son and I got skunked last Sunday. Hopefully we'll have better luck this time.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Nemo77 on Jan. 13, 2016

I h8 weeds. Sorry forgot to mention, a guy has a semi permanent ice shack on the ice out that way, I was East of this shack and roughly the same distance out. There are pike galore there and the perch active too. :-) Throw a second line on the bottom and try for a burbot too. I will be doing this there from now on. Hopefully out there again next week fingers crossed.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Nemo77 on Jan. 13, 2016

I h8 weeds. I was on the South side of the lake toward the East end. I was not to far in from the bank. Lots of minnows so if your bobber is constantly going I found dropping the hook by about 6 to 8 inches worked well. I was roughly 12 to 20 inches off the bottom. I found bites were very active when the sun is on the lake so from roughly 10:15am to 3pm.

Star Star Star Star Star

by I h8 weeds on Jan. 9, 2016

Had lots of Jackfish in the last week. Had a descent size perch and unfortunately lost an okay fish on a rod that was baited on the bottom. I was hoping for a burbot. LOL. Cliche I know, the one that got away. Ha Ha

by DionRoy on May. 14, 2015

There isn't much in the way of shore fishing. The only spot that works is a small bridge on the north side of the lake. You'll know it when you see it (look for all the old fishing line hanging from the power lines) lol. The bridge gets pretty weeded over later in the season. The lake works best of you have a boat - the launch is on the Northeast part of the lake - just down from the bridge. God luck!

Between 2 of us we got 11 Pike. No keepers but two were close with one at 56cm. Tried to find the Perch but we could not. 8-12 inches of ice where we were but lots of flood water... about 6 inches. We were quite a way out. Moved between 20 feet and 10. Anyone find the Perch and if so any pointers or locations?

I'd say no more than 4" of solid clear ice just off the boat launch. The frozen slush doesn't count much for me. Especially how this lake freezes sometimes.

During the summer the fish finder shows all kinds of whites swimming just below surface. In late summer when oxygen levels are low, you see many dead whites on the surface, typical of many lakes. The whites are large though from what I've seen.

by Chris V on Dec. 30, 2012

Ice was 12-14 inches most driving on with no troubles. Tried lots of different holes with none landed. I was running 2 tip ups for pike and we were trying to jig for perch in the shack. Seemed pretty quiet all over the lake but worth another try some time.

Flood water and snow is frozen to a thickness of about 10 to 11".. Cut through that with the auger to get to about 20" of black ice. No problem driving on pike were picky going for green jigs only and no other species caught
