Was there late June. Netted 4 browns 12, 16, and 2 x 19”ers. I didn’t see a single bow, but the browns were very thick and took hard out of the weed line.

Lake was full of Weeds near dock and cleared up on the far east side of lake. Seen lots of jumpers and cought one 49 cm fish and it was cloudy and windy day but a nice one for fishing on a Tuesday.

Had my vehicle broken into and3 rods and two gear bags were stolen. I’m offering $1000 no questions asked for their return. The items are extremely sentimental. Any help would be greatly appreciated. camyallits@gmail.com

Pretty slow today, 6 or so boats out flyfishing and spin fishing and noone got anything. in the 2 1/2 hrs i was out, i was trying chironomids and leeches. Wildlife viewing was awesome tho with loons, pelicans, and geese families, made for a lotta fun despite lack of fish. One if the guys said its been a pretty slow year overall, but there are a few nice trout if ya put in the time.

No fish from anyone. It is still early in the season. I only saw a couple jump. May be better when stocked.

Cruised all around Muir Lake yesterday evening. Two of us tried various spinners and spoons of all shapes, sizes and colours. Not one bite, and weeds are beginning to take over. However, the fish are still jumping everywhere.

No bites at all. Weeds everywhere. Saw two pelicans nab one each though. That pretty much was the highlight.

I fished it last weekend and caught a few 14" rainbows. Even after the winter kill last spring I caught a few 20"

Iceandfire, the lake fished well last season with a 0 catch limit. It has recently been stocked again this year. This is a sportsmans lake. Gotta work a bit but the fishing is decent here. They stocked rainbows and browns in it this year.

by Iceandfire on May. 19, 2017

Came up to a sign saying that this lake has winter kill and there is no big ones whatsoever the limit is only one at 20 inches. Gone 3 times so far no fish, lots an lots of minnows by the dock. Lots of little fish jumping, but no bits. But overall it's nice to get out an toss the line in the water because you never know. But won't go back this year even tho it's nice an close to town.

Yes they talked about fishing on november 1 but notice how they said they were fishing the other day which means sometime late october.

Thanks Tips! : /

by NorthernYaker on May. 3, 2017

That's because the lake is closed Nov- May. By May you can't fish on what ice is remaining.

by Hardcor on May. 3, 2017

I looked back at this thread that started in 2011. There is no mention of ice fishing......just people wondering if the ice is off yet is all. Thanks for the updates!

Muir opens today, anyone heading out that can give an ice report? Going Friday.

by Madmak on Apr. 29, 2017

Some open water but not much. Open around the aeration and about 5m from shore. Hopefully this week will get the ice off.

by sedubius on Apr. 27, 2017

With the winter kill I figured it didn't need more pressure. On my hit list come ice off after may 1 though.

We must have crossed paths at Spring. The last day I fished there was November 13 and found some slabs on a Vampire leach pattern, Like you, never fished Muir at all last year.

Not Muir, Spring. I didnt fish Muir at all last year.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Mr Flyguy on Apr. 23, 2017

Well hopefully you were not on Muir in late November 'cause it's closed from November 1 to April 30!

Star Star Star Star Star

by sedubius on Apr. 18, 2017

That's wishful thinking, however I am wishing too... Gonna be a late start. Oh well I was still out on the lake late Nov. last year.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Mr Flyguy on Apr. 15, 2017

Only 2 weeks to opening day (May 1). Let's hope the ice is gone.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Goggin on Apr. 9, 2017

Still plenty of ice as of apr 9th nice to see aeration system going

by Alberta_flyfisher on Apr. 7, 2017

Has anyone been out recently? Is the ice off? Any reports of dead fish?

Fished for a few hours the other day, landed 4 on back swimmers about 10ft off the dock. Biggest was 20.5 inches! Good to see!

Star Star Star Star Star

by Mr Flyguy on Aug. 13, 2016

Some of us will likely go out in the fall for the backswimmer action but if others want to wait for next spring that's OK with me!

Weeds have fully taken over the lake, in a float tube it's unfishable. Don't bother even trying. Go to another lake. You won't have a good time. The weeds are getting close to the dock as well.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Craig W. on Aug. 9, 2016

Was out yesterday evening (Aug. 8). Weeds have grown almost to the surface (nearly everywhere). Not a sign of trout jumping/surfacing anywhere at all. Water's probably too warm at this stage in mid-summer. Don't waste your time until next spring folks.

Finally came back with my boat. Tried out 4 different flies before I found success with a green Willy bugger. Caught 3 within 30 minutes

First time here really nice lake. Didn't catch anything (dock was busy and could only find shallow water by shore) would love to come back with a canoe.

The fishing has been fun so far although mostly smaller ones , it's too bad about the whole arreation problem ... Hope to see some good size ones in the next year or two :)

Star Star Star Star Star

by SnapBack02 on May. 26, 2016

Fishing has been good this week surprised on the size range of these fish. Biggest was 16" smallest was 10". Still trying to find the Browns tho. Anyone have any luck with them?
