Is there any whitefish left in this lake? Nobody has really answered this question. All I catch is walleye from deep water to shallow water.
by DawsonR on Mar. 20, 2017
Going out there this coming up Sunday, can anyone give me some ideas for lures I could use for whitefish and walleye.
by Richard silver beach on Mar. 20, 2017
Hay all fisherman and lady's just wondering if any one would have info on seeing anyone around the point just south of Mulhurst bay over the past week. Some people destroyed two fishing huts and would like to find out who it was or if there was any vehicles in area
by ATVGuy on Mar. 19, 2017
Clarification: a couple of days of plus 6 Celsius. Apparently this forum doesn't like showing the plus symbol.
Ice reports are 28 inches to 3 feet. A couple days of 6 isn't going to make that much difference.
by BeerBabesBurbot on Mar. 19, 2017
Wasn't fishing Mulhurst today but fished a few spots at different parts of the lake and there is still lots of ice with no signs of rotting yet. Can't imagine Mulhurst would be much different. Just watch for heaves one we ran into would be hard to see if you were being reckless.
by Brad.hynes82 on Mar. 18, 2017
Was thinking about going out in the morning. Anybody know How's the ice around mulhurst. Is it still good to go out on
by mapman_yyc on Mar. 18, 2017
Fished overnight Thursday just off the dropoff by the Provincial Park. C&R a good sized burbot just after midnight and a nice pike around 9 AM. Caught both on a glow gumball jig with a salted minnow.
by browning-gone-fishing on Mar. 17, 2017
Hey, if you are looking to do some good pike fishing I would suggest hitting wizard lake just up from pigeon you will have way more action with the pike on this lake rather than pigeon!! But if you are set on pigeon lake you can go left of the boat launch at mulhurst or head to the far side at the provincial park may get some luck over there!!!
by Lef1616 on Mar. 17, 2017
Hey everyone. Im new to the lake and really just want to do some catch and release for some pike. I have no idea how deep to fish or where to fish. Not looking for any crazy secrets just a helping hand is all. Thanks everyone
by C2tus on Mar. 12, 2017
Drive out on the boat launch at crystal springs, go right to Norris beach or left to Grandview.Fish either point where all the shacks are. I think there's only 2 shacks left at Norris.
by StephQ77 on Mar. 11, 2017
Looking to fill my tags any tips on where to hook up with some walleye any info would be greatly appreciated thanks

Ice Report: 3 ft
by mountainman11 on Mar. 10, 2017
Caught a nice pike in 2 fow. Yes it's in the lake still. It's windy and cold. Just missed 2 when we moved. Snow covered mabey 12 inches.
I didn't measure but ice is well over 25 inches
by mountainman11 on Mar. 9, 2017
Thank you gold fishwish I will be leaving in 5 hours. So not to late. Once I get my walleye I will hunt for whites and perch. Yes I've seen perch really shallow and we'll under 25 cm. Hopefully I catch pike. I know I can't keep them but I like catching
by Big FishWish on Mar. 9, 2017
I know I come late with this info but I caught a big 5 lb white 2 weeks ago. jigged a smaller plain gold spoon in 18 feet of water, 1 foot from bottom. Good Luck.
by C2tus on Mar. 8, 2017
The ice is well over 20" thick. Should be good with the week we just had, watch out around the stress cracks when it gets mild out. Follow everyone else tracks you should be fine.
by FlounderPounder on Mar. 8, 2017
Thanks for the tips guys. Just curious as to the ice conditions.... I'm sure it's plenty thick. Every where else I've gone has been 30+ inches. Just wondering if there are any trouble spots to look out for (springs, heaves, etc). Sunday will be first time to pigeon in quite a few years. Will post results. Thanks for any info
by mountainman11 on Mar. 8, 2017
For walleye I use a knuckle ball jig head. Stick a minnow through the eyes. Than pull head into head of jig head. Hook minnow again on body part now it should rest on bottom of lake at a 45°angle. Have it so the line has tension but still on bottom. Dead stick one like that or both. If rod is in hand do the same on the bottom . Every bit or so jig up a and down if you want.
Will somebody please tell me what to do for white fish in this lake
by C2tus on Mar. 7, 2017
Try a gold Mazuno lipless crank bait( you can buy them at the Petro-Canada on the south side of the lake at the village) . Fish off a point in about 8-10ft of water or 60-100ft from the shore, right before dark. Tie it directly to your line. Sit it 8" from the bottom and jig up hard 2-4 ft then pause, let it float back down and settle unil it is pulmb to your rod tip. If that doesn't work put some tunes on and make it dance to your music 8" above the bottom.I live on the lake and fish it a lot. I've tried almost every other crank bait, lures, shinners, etc. This seems to work the best for me. I took 4 walleye in 15 min, 7 in 2 hrs.last week. Good luck!!
by SnapBack02 on Mar. 7, 2017
I agree with the below post. This is a site for anglers to help fellow anglers. If you can't afford the technology like cameras and flashers this is all you have to assist you to find fish. Already at a disadvantage so help ppl out.
by mountainman11 on Mar. 6, 2017
I like this app it it's really frustrating that people don't post tips. Or answer questions. I'm going out Friday Saturday and Sunday. I will update got class b tags I'm going to fish shallow.
If I get whites I will tell you all. And tell you what I'm using. The ice is good this year. Please let's share more information.
by Tjp on Mar. 6, 2017

Been 1/2 mile west of provincial park. Access is good if u wanna drive on. Good luck.
Thanks. Where have you been fishing. Is access on the lake ok or is a person walking on.
Jigs and minnows are working well for me. On bottom and in 6-8 feet of water. Find weed bed and right depth and u should b ok. Hope this helps.
Heading to Pigeon tomorrow with Class b walleye tags. Never been and curious where i should go. Jigs and minnows? Any help would be awesome.

by LowellG on Feb. 20, 2017
Hey Nivhob if you go just of the south point just at the end of silver beach and in between burnt burch there are walleye there but I haven't seen any whites
What was the ice like ? Still drivable
by nivhob on Feb. 19, 2017
Brutal day again....no whitefish. Thought you could gain access to the lake just a little bit south of Mulhurst Bay by Burnt Birch but all locked up...oh well...that's where I really wanted to get to today. Saw one Walleye that I wasn't going for...that's it.Wait again til next year I guess to take daughter ice fishing...unless someone can tell me where a good spot is.
There is some water on the lake....was there today at Mulhurst Bay.
by Seven Pillars on Feb. 19, 2017
Anyone aware of flood waters on lake?
Thanks in advance.
by Chico 29 on Feb. 19, 2017
Had a good day Friday. 7 walleye and a decent pike. Filled last tag. Shallow water is the key.
by Tjp on Feb. 18, 2017
Same here! Skunked again....1 lost hook on a decent jack and one pickerel that sniffed the hook on camera in 6 hours!
by nivhob on Feb. 18, 2017
Brutal fishing day today. Saw 1 Pike all day....not that I wanted to see it. All the whitefish must be on vacation.
by mapman_yyc on Feb. 18, 2017
First time at Pigeon. No snow but ice was almost thick enough to reach the motor on my auger. Caught & released a 53cm walleye (my first in AB). Bummer because my tags are for 43-50cm.
by RichieC on Feb. 17, 2017
Anyone been on pigeon today..any flood water...I'm assuming it's still good to drive on.
Thanks in advance

by mfisher on Feb. 16, 2017
Thinking of going this weekend and maybe a day or two next week how is the ice? It should still be good next week I would think?
by nivhob on Feb. 15, 2017
Thinking of taking daughter to Pigeon on Saturday.....no issues with driving onto the lake?__Going for white's...so hopefully fish will be biting and around. Will be in a red Rav4 by Mulhurst if someone would like to show me where the Perch are just in case so daughter doesn't get bored out of her mind.

Some good days, some bad, it's hit or miss, it's called fishing not catching haha. If I knew where the fish were, I would have a different job that's for sure! But whoever says it's a crap lake must not have a line in the water

Hey Daryl so mulhurst or on the pp side?

by Tack Man on Feb. 12, 2017
Strikeout Lake is what it should be called. 5 trips to this lake and not even 1 bite. I think people lie about catching fish here.

Any white fish being caught?
by Chico 29 on Feb. 4, 2017
I have been having lots of luck by Mameo in 5-7 feet of water. Walleye don't need deep water in winter. They move to shallow water to feed on the bait fish. I've been jigging with spoons and had excellent results.
by River_rat on Feb. 3, 2017
Very slow day around the provincial park, fished in 12-22 feet of water, saw only a small handful of fish on the camera in all the spots I moved to, all were pretty lathargic and weren't interested in anything I had to offer.
by Tikka Hunter on Jan. 29, 2017
Fished Mulhurst this am for a couple hours. On the ice at 7:30 am. Picked up one B class, only 2 bites in 2.5 hours. They have definitely moved. The bike races were starting so I packed up and headed home. Beautiful morning.
by google on Jan. 29, 2017
Any suggestions as to where to find whitefish in this lake? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks
by Carpet_Surfer on Jan. 28, 2017
Drove up today with my dad. We were the first ones on the lake before sunrise. Tried fishing mulhurst bay. Went 8, 15, 18, and finally 22 ft througout the day moving around. Didnt see much on the camera and no bites on the jaw jackers or rod. About 26 inches of ice. 15 or so trucks on the ice but nobody seemed to be catching anything today. Hit those deep drifts with some speed and you'll be good! Not sure where all the walleye went from a few weeks back when they couldn't keep em off the hook?
Went here today. Mulhurst bay. We got here first thing in the morning to fill our walleye tags. Started at 10 ft then 15, 18, 20, and finally 22 ft. Had the aquaview and the flasher going and only saw 3 fish all day and no bites. Dissapointing day. Not sure where all the walleye went. There were about 15 other truck in the bay and didnt seem like anyone was catching. Maybe just a bad day but it was strange not seeing any fish
by LowellG on Jan. 23, 2017
Was out at Mulhurst today straight out from the boat launch never seen A fish was there three hours

by Catch,N' fun on Jan. 18, 2017
Well @northernpike we moved all around the lake moving every 30 minutes or so. That's what I would suggest.
by oggie on Jan. 16, 2017
_Got to where I was going at 8:45 AM. Went through a tub of minnows by 12:30 PM The wife and I filled our over 50cm tags very quickly. Could have filled any size limit. But mostly 50cm to 60cm walleye. Be careful driving on the lake for the deep hard drifts are hard to see, till it's to late. Tight lines.

Very hard to fill C Class Tags from My Understanding ( my neighbor has C and all we get are 47 to 50 cm ) . I have Class A tags I still need to fill. Tried PP but fishing there was very poor. No one catching seems to catching there. Any suggestions on where else to try ? Any been to Grandview this year ?

I never gone ice fishing at Pigeon Lake. Can anyone pinpoint where in Pigeon lake I can ice fish?
by Troy78 on Jan. 12, 2017
Walleye are fine to eat. Not sure why they haven't been bought up. To many tags maybe ? Been like that for a few years now. You would think they would just reopen the lake for 1 walleye. Like Slave or Buck. Maybe they like the cash they get for the tags.
by Perchslayer on Jan. 11, 2017
Just curious why people aren't eating up the walleye tags? Is the fish not good to eat out of the lake or something? I also heard it was a dirty lake? Just looking for some clarification. Wife and I have tags and we are going to fish it next week for the first time. :)

I had some Walleye action yesterday in the Crystal Spring part of the Lake. The first Tank came in and really taken its time checking out my bright green minnow lure, finally bit it, got him near the Hole when my line snapped :( had a few more come by after that, finally got one tagged. Was in 10 feet of water below Ice.

by Big FishWish on Dec. 27, 2016
Just to answer some previous questions... I drove on Lake as many others, few inchs of snow and drifts. I got access on to lake, right in front of Mulhurst restaurant.a low frost heave there too, one van got stuck trying to get over, truck or suv would have no problem.
I went in the afternoon to fish on this Lake at Mulhurst bay. Ice is 2 feet thick, and was at a depth of 8 feet of water._I did not see even 1 fish in the two hours I tried, the good news is the water was fairly clear._Talked with another guy leaving and they had luck catching Walleye south of me at the next point...

Ice is about 14"
Fishing is slow
Anyone catching perch??
by Dan83 on Dec. 23, 2016
I fished at Mulhurst for a few hours on Thursday. I wasn't sure of the ice thickness so I walked on. 12-14" of ice about 200 m from shore. Be careful though, lots of bare ice and lots of frozen waves make the lake dangerous without a pair of cleats. The fishing was slow, saw nothing of size on the radar or down the hole, just lots of minnows.
by Billchucktaylor on Dec. 23, 2016
Anyone driving on the lake?
by oggie on Dec. 23, 2016
_The fish out of Pigeon Lake are very tasty in the winter. This is my own opinion. Walleye are great eating. The white fish are very good as well, if you can catch them. In winter 60 years ago, fish from Pigeon Lake were shipped by rail car to New York. On the menu at their restaurant stated Pigeon Lake white fish. So the story goes from the elders that live in this region.__
by LordOfTheFish on Dec. 23, 2016
I've never been to this lake...how does the fish taste??? :)
by oggie on Dec. 22, 2016
Hard to get on the lake due to 6-8 ft ice heaves. The heaves are all over the lake. Many coming close to shore. Hard to find a place to drive on with a truck. The best way would be with ATV. ski-do or quad. Merry Christmas, good luck and good fishing. P.S. Very clear ice (no snow)

Took a look at Golden Days area on the weekend. Lake is frozen over. Kids were playing on the ice near shore. Looked to be about 3" thick. This cold spell should help thicken it up pretty fast.

We're on the southwest shore by Norris Beach. Algae is there but just looks like a light skim of sand in the water. Nothing like last year. Fish are still biting. Not sure if I'd wanna eat anything outta this lake, but lots of fun catching just 75ft from shore. Shallow enough I went out tonight in my waders and got about 75ft out.

brad420 .... you will have no problem filling your tags (a) .... between now and October ... one day ...you should have two fish between 3 to 6 pounds .... 57cm to 62 cm .... at least that we have experienced every year .... have fun ...
by Brad0420 on Aug. 6, 2016
How's the size for walleye this year. Got my Class A tags for pigeon this year. Just want an idea of what my chances are for filling tags ( prefer 60 cm range if possible ) in one trip or should I plan for a few trips. Obviously if 50 - 55 cm is best I can hope for I will take those.

Had a good evening on pigeon, not a lot of action, but caught 3 decent walleye in the 4-5lb range and 2 little 2lb walleyed that had a ton of fight for their size! Used 5 of diamonds and Red Devils in about 20ft of water.

Great day on the water Saturday. 30 eyes for me, 3 others in the boat all did well too! Beautiful fish very healthy. Was tough to tag out on my class 3 as everything I was catching seemed to be 45 cm.... Lol, great fishery!

by Riderprider on Jul. 9, 2016
Was out at the PP last night. Wind came up for a while and blew us into 10-12 fow. Still caught walleye although not as many. Actually caught quite a few on leeches. Usually a jig and minnow is king. All in all a great night.

Great walleye fishing in 20 ft deep from provincial park.
by Clave on Jul. 1, 2016
Pigeon is very shallow for a long way out so does not have much for good shore fishing spots. That said you can catch walleye just about any where in that lake and I have certainly seen a number caught from shore.
by barrykoy on Jun. 30, 2016
Does anyone know some good spots for shore fishing in this lake? We are heading there tomorrow!
by Ian pencoff on Jun. 19, 2016
*Wanted* someon with a boat to take me and my dad out on pigeon lake. Will pay $30 or $50 if we can fill our three tags for walleye less then 43 cm. My dad is finally recovered from his knee operation and I really want to take him fishing. went out today shore fishing,to windy no luck. My names ian you can call or text me 7807101970

Does anybody know a good shore fishing spot ??
by Giby on May. 26, 2016
Went out Friday of May long. Put the boat in at Mulhurst bay. It was pretty rough so we just went to the north west tip of Argentina Beach and drifted back to the launch. caught the most at 12 feet with a jig and minnow.
by Fireman on May. 25, 2016
Do the update and then you get the current regs
by Summit18 on May. 25, 2016
Went out on Saturday in front of the PP and caught 22 walleye in 2 hours. Windy and tough to stay anchored
by Whitefish18 on May. 24, 2016
How's the fishing?
by oggie on May. 17, 2016
Make sure that you are reading the 2016 regs Northernpike.
by Northernpike on May. 17, 2016
So I see in the regs there is a 0 limit for pike but on here it's 100cm they better fix this. Or I read it wrong but I am sure it's 0 limit now
by Sledneck11 on May. 16, 2016
Went out today caught 22 walleye an one jack in about 2 hours from 6-8pm great fishing
by Babyfish on May. 16, 2016
What's the fishing like at this lake?
by Tbot on May. 10, 2016
Mulhurst boat launch is fine. No one had any issues this past weekend.
by wouldee on May. 10, 2016
Have an 18 ft. boat. Where is the best launch i.e. depth, ramp conditions, parking on pigeon lake?
by Pike/hunter on Apr. 10, 2016
Is all the ice gone ...any boats on the lake
Bought a boat and would like to go try it
by Clave on Apr. 5, 2016
where are you guys getting on now. __I got on at Crystal springs last Saturday but would not recommend it any more without hip waders/

Most were over 50 cm. got two over 56cm
by doylejhansen on Apr. 2, 2016
rebel burt ... when you say big wallys .... how big is big cheers doyle
by Rebel burt on Mar. 31, 2016
Fished by the island yesterday 23' FOW. filled my tags. Lots of big Wallys.
by Addictedtofishing2258 on Mar. 28, 2016
Ice is no longer drivable at Mulhurst .... 10 yards out the ice is 22 inches but the shore line has melted and you can't make it to the stronger ice without risking getting stuck . And when I say risk I mean you will get stuck . Provincial park side you can still get on as the launch is shaded a bit by the trees .
by Addictedtofishing2258 on Mar. 27, 2016
To add to yesterday - landed a monster walleye by provincial park at about 12 pm ! On a tip up being used to target pike . Had a split rig with two large trebles and a jumbo hearing on it and couldn't beleive me eyes to see giant walleye eyes staring at up at it got to the hole . 2 firsts - landed a pike and a wire worm and walleye on a jumbo hearing .
by Addictedtofishing2258 on Mar. 26, 2016
Fishing provincial park this am in about 12 -18 ft . Landed a 6 lb pike on a copper wire worm with nothing on it - wasn't jogging it either . So,that was a first landing a pike on 4 lb test with no metal leader . Extreamly slow . I think I'm the only one who's landed anything and it was an accident
by Snowbear on Mar. 26, 2016
Going out tomorrow with snow bear .They say the monsters are by the island .will be interesting .if there is 2 feet of ice that's tons .any one herd this story
by ATVGuy on Mar. 26, 2016
PP launch was fine this evening. Its just a bit of a bump getting out, but not bad. Lots of trucks on the ice.__Thanks mountainman for the tip about the weeds north of PP. I finally found wally. 3 right around dusk. 2 of them were too big for my tags though. No bites before or after dusk.
by Addictedtofishing2258 on Mar. 25, 2016
Can anyone point me in the direction of the whites this year ? Last year at this time you could limit out at Mulhurst bay in 5 ft of water . I went out this morning and was the only person on the bay ! Wtf is going on . I fished sun up till about 9:30 and then left frustrated . I figure when it's a holiday and still no one is on the lake something is up with the lake . I've tried the 12-18 in Mulhurst bay as well still no luck . As long as I can remember the burbot come in to Mulhurst to spawn and the whites are right behind them eating the eggs . Apprently not this year - or they are late and considering the weather I thought the whites would be in the bay 2 weeks ago . Any help on finding them - please let me know - also what your catching them on (colour)
by Riderfan on Mar. 23, 2016
I still have b class to fill. I'm going on sat or Monday.. I would like to drive on at PP launch if it's still safe. I drove on last week over the ice heave but had no luck. Going to try one more time, does anyone know if it's still safe. I'll walk if need be
by Whitefish18 on Mar. 21, 2016
how are people catching the whites? how deep? Thanks in advance
by TheRook on Mar. 21, 2016
2 feet of ice out on the provincial park Saturday night. Started a bit slow but then started slammin the wallys throughout the evening.
by Backwoods Billy on Mar. 18, 2016
What is the fishing for whites like at Mulhurst Bay?
by Soiler on Mar. 17, 2016
Drove my 1/2 ton on, on tues...
by Zaner on Mar. 16, 2016
Hey Soiler, is the ice still drivable?
by Catchall63 on Mar. 15, 2016
Sunday we filled our walleye tags between7 pm and8 pm - from55 -60 cm
by Sledneck11 on Mar. 15, 2016
Where are people catching the whites? Depth an what are you using for lures, help would be greatly appreciated
by Soiler on Mar. 15, 2016
The whites have started to bite. They're still out in deeper water....
by Rolly P on Mar. 14, 2016

5 walleye & 1 burbot about 15 ft of water. South of Golden Days
by Whitefish18 on Mar. 13, 2016
Anybody catching any whites?
by Brad0420 on Mar. 13, 2016
Search alberta fall walleye netting index. This report will show you how the population of each fish species is doing in your lake. Walleye are native to most lakes in alberta including this one bUT we're fished out most lakes including this one. This made good perch lakes as no walleye to eat perch. Now the lakes need to get readjusted to walleye. Pike limits are good as everyone keeps pike which are easy to catch since they can't keep walleye. Alberta lakes are s% (t because too many people keep too many fish. No respect for the fisheries
by mountainman11 on Mar. 12, 2016
@truck guy off provincial park go left following the shore you can't miss it. There is a part of the lake that is closed off for ever so don't go to far. I was before the houses closer to the dams
by Truckguy36 on Mar. 11, 2016
Where are the weeds. I have been in 4fow last Monday and was at the mouth by the coutages. The walleye always go there to spawn. I just think it's a couple weeks early still. Once the ice starts melting they will head to there spawning area.
by Clave on Mar. 11, 2016
It's the Walleye that are eating everything in sight and throwing the whole lake out of balance. There were plenty of perch in Pigeon (for decades) when there was just pike, whitefish and Burbot. As soon as the walleye were introduced and allowed to run rampant all other species declined.
by DC168 on Mar. 11, 2016
With the rise in walleye population, white fish is difficult to find. I understand they are trying to promote walleye fishing here. However, a balanced population is vital to the future recreation fishing of this lake. When it run out of white and perch, there is nothing to eat.
by mountainman11 on Mar. 11, 2016
Biologist are wrong. I caught 6 walleye all over 50. Tagged 2.
Caught 10 pike.
This lake should be 3 over 50 without tags. For walleye and 2 pike between 50 to 70 cm. If that was the case I could of kept 1 out of 10. How do they even test the lake???????????
@ truck guy fish in 3-5 fow along weeds.
by oggie on Mar. 11, 2016
I have to agree with ATVGuy. I also have caught a lot of pike this year. Lost plenty of hooks to them as well. The reason my be that commercial fishing has been stopped for the third year. With all the pike and walleye in this lake, there will never be a healthy perch fishery here. I`m sure that our so called biologist`s don`t even own a fishing rod.
by ATVGuy on Mar. 10, 2016
I'm surprised by the reaction regarding pike population. My experience has not been a lack of pike in Pigeon lake. Rather the opposite. I see more pike in Pigeon than anything else. And I haven't seen a single perch in 6 years! Coincidence? I still don't understand - why protect all those monster pike when they eat everything in sight?
by Truckguy36 on Mar. 10, 2016
Have fished pigeon the past 3 Monday's in a row. Well over 24 inches of ice still. But can't seam to find the walleye to fill my tags. Started out from provincial park boat launch. 16fow. And have went west from there. Can't even see any on camera. 8 hrs each day. And nothing.
by newscientist on Mar. 10, 2016
I read their report about pike population in pigeon lake and it seems still declining despite their restrictive catch limits. I guess the increasing number of walleyes don't let small pikes to grow. I personally think they should ease their restriction on catching walleyes, and pike population will have a better chance to rebound.
by Clave on Mar. 10, 2016
Thank god they finally got around to protecting the pike in that lake. This used to be a very good mixed species lake before it was managed solely for walleye. It would be nice to also see the perch come back as well. Oggie I agree Fisheries has wrecked this lake by their mono species walleye management. But at least we can see they are now trying to restore the natural balance.
Zaner you might try "Battery World" for your 12 V camera battery.
by oggie on Mar. 10, 2016
Google My wild Alberta .com Click on My Wild Alberta fishing. The biologist`s have wrecked this lake completely.
by ATVGuy on Mar. 9, 2016
0 limit on pike? Why!? You can catch pike in any slough in Alberta, so I don't see a reason to protect them so aggressively. My understanding is pike are used to keep the perch at bay. Well, I don't see a problem with too many perch in Pigeon Lake. If there is any logic behind this decision, would it be too much to ask for a write-up in the fishing guide?
by oggie on Mar. 9, 2016
New regs for Pigeon Lake state that there is a zero limit for pike as of April 1 2016. That limit will also be for 2017. For 2017 fishing will be closed from April 1- May 14 2017 At Pigeon Lake. Personally I think that these biologist's have their head in their ass.__

Well said Soiler. I picked up a few empty beer cans.

by Soiler on Mar. 7, 2016
To the A@$hats that keep leaving their Timmy's garbage on the ice off Sandholm point...... Clean up after yourselves!!! I've cleaned up your cups,newspapers & sandwich wrappers the last few weekends! If you can't be bothered to clean up your garbage & take it with you!!! Stay the F$@k
Anyone know where I can get a 12v battery for my camera? Out on the lake and the battery died. On the whites
by mountainman11 on Mar. 5, 2016
Great day off of provincial park. Many walleye out. Kept my 2 over 50. 8 hammer handles . Great day. Fishing in 4fow
Ice Report: 28 in
by SteveYM66 on Mar. 5, 2016
Fished PP last night from 330-630pm. Fishing was slow with only one walleye between 3 of us. Tried 4-15' FOW. Lots of ice almost needed an extension
by Zaner on Mar. 5, 2016
Saw 7 whites this morning 16fow. Anyone know if it's safe to drive to the middle of the lake? F150
by typeter on Mar. 4, 2016
Was in deeper water when we saw the big walleye then moved in to 8 fow caught one eye.
by Romanchuk8 on Mar. 4, 2016
Try deeper water. I've had a lot of success this year at Pigeon in 12-19 FOW.
Not seeing to much on the other side of the lake either. Seen one big walleye today but wouldn't take the bait
by Addictedtofishing2258 on Mar. 4, 2016
Just out fishing on pigion as I type this - been out for 2 hours and haven't seen a fish - I'm fishing straight out from the boatlaunch at Mulhurst bay in about 6 ft of water,trying minnows on jig head for walleye and wireworms with maggots for whites .... I'm taking a friend fishing tomorrow who has never caught a fish through the ice ... Can anyone point me to where I can land any fish on pigion ? I know the lake fairly well . But summer spots are not the same as winter spots and I've fished pigion 3 times in the winter and never once have had a bite .
by Sledneck11 on Mar. 4, 2016
Caught one walleye in about 6 hours around 5 pm... Good luck
by LowellG on Mar. 4, 2016
How is the fishing over at the provincial park ? Is the ice thick enough to drive on still
by Soiler on Mar. 3, 2016
Managed to catch a few whites this week but haven't seen any burbs yet this year..... Had a few jacks that had to check & be sure if my camera was edible tho.... Moved it around for 15 min... Lol
by AdamM on Mar. 3, 2016
Seen a couple burbot, but they weren't interested in my jig head and minnows. Caught 2 30" jack in about a 6 hour period. Seen a couple eyes but they didn't seem interested either. Still some tough fishing for me anyway. Good luck!
by redneckfishnalbertan on Mar. 3, 2016
Are the burbot biting n if so where heading out to your area on Saturday. Any help greatly appreciated
by Clave on Mar. 1, 2016

Another hard day today,fished 8- 25 ' saw some no takers,I got mad then said we are leaving,my two partners said fine,lets go drink beers and watch Conner Mcdavid play hockey,as he was one of my partners ,good luck everyone Conner is my new BFF
by oggie on Feb. 27, 2016
Was out Feb. 26. Ice is between 24-26 inches. Lots of trucks on the ice. Filled my tags with 59 and 62cm eyes. Lots of good pike fishing as well Fished in 20 ft of water. Great day out there.
by Sledneck11 on Feb. 26, 2016
Ice is about 14-16 inches
I've gone about 7-8 times and have pulled in 2 walleyes..I suggest going to wizard always catch fish there lol
by piclicker on Feb. 26, 2016
Clave did you boys drive on
by Clave on Feb. 26, 2016
Flipflop you need to move around. If your not seeing fish then move. I friend and I caught 30 last weekend in one day. Not supper fast action but I am certainly not complaining for deep winter ice fishing. The ice was 19 inches solid black with 3-4 inches of white on top where we were.
by Flipflop on Feb. 25, 2016
26" over the past weekend at the Provincial Park
Terrible fishing...one 2 lb Pike over two days between 5 guys

Anyone know what the ice is like ? How thick is it
by kelster on Feb. 23, 2016
I stand corrected Clave
by Clave on Feb. 22, 2016
kelster why would you not eat the fish from Pigeon in the winter? First there is no toxin's in the flesh even in the summer and right now the water is crystal clear.
by Soiler on Feb. 20, 2016
I've been fishing in 23-26 FOW.... Of course they humbled me the next day..... Seeing 12-15 each morning but not taking anything I put in front of em..... Picky buggers! Lol
by Like shooting fish in a barrel on Feb. 19, 2016
How deep and what side of lake for those big whites? Been on them at gull pretty consistently, looking to smash some monsters at pigeon...
by kelster on Feb. 19, 2016
Do you eat the fish from that algea ridden lake ??
by Soiler on Feb. 19, 2016
Finally landed 1 of those hog whitefish & hopefully broke the years long jinx. Hooked & lost a few but finally landed 1! Deep water boys & girls!
by redneckfishnalbertan on Feb. 17, 2016
I meant lac la biche
Finding alot of eggs in the big pike at this lake an some others in the niche area. Is it early spawn do to the freakish weather or is it always like this every year
by Romanchuk8 on Feb. 17, 2016
Fishing has been excellent for me. Caught many fish from 50-64cm in the last week-10 days. 22 FOW.
by AdamM on Feb. 15, 2016
Fishing has been tough this weekend. Just caught a small walleye and that's about it. 1 other bite. Seeing a few fish on camera but they are very picky. Good luck!

Depending on how you are going out on the ice if you are using a truck or vehicle you need to use the boat launch at mulhust across from the restaurant if you are going by you UTV or skidoo you can go through by the park
by Tbot on Feb. 11, 2016
Richard silver beach, I fish that point all summer but rarely get out for ice fishing. That's where I want to go but what's best access to there? Do I need to drive from mulhurst? Access from silver beach park? Or can I access near burnt burch? Thanks

Did you mark a hot spot at the 13 ft area big trout ?
by BIG TROUT ALBERTA on Feb. 11, 2016

We were still south east of silver beach. But that point there is a good starting point. Had good luck there in the past.
by Romanchuk8 on Feb. 10, 2016
Near Silver Beach summit?
South east of Mulhurst. Should find walleye all through there. Jig head and a minnow.

Hay summit where about were you fishing?? I live on mulhurst bay side and haven't seen to much over here
Hey fellow anglers. A few of us are coming out and wanting to fish the point at the edge of poplar bay and the bay near the camps. What's the best way to get on there???
by Summit18 on Feb. 9, 2016
Crushed the walleye today. 2 of us had 26 on the ice and seen at least that many again. Majority over 52cm, 7- over 55cm. Fished from 2-6pm
by oggie on Feb. 8, 2016

by slayer76 on Feb. 2, 2016
Thanks .07 i;m gonna head back to try and fill my tags some time soon and hopefully it works i would hate to see them got to waste have a good one and thanks again!!
by Romanchuk8 on Feb. 1, 2016
Caught a 53 and a 54 today. Lost a nice one at the hole...very frustrating. Slow day though. Use all your tricks to make them strike! They are there, just need to entice them to bite.
by Soiler on Jan. 30, 2016
I think it's just the mid-winter lull. Jan. is always tough on this lake... Was out yesterday & got a couple 'Eyes & Jack in a few hours... Had to bounce around a bunch to find em tho....
by Bearhunter52 on Jan. 30, 2016
4 guys fished for 3 hours at Sundance Beach today. 10-12 feet of water. One walleye hooked and four others seen but were not interested. Very Slow. Seems like the bad algae bloom last summer and fall may have depleted the oxygen making the fish very lethargic and not willing to bite. Been the same story all winter in an area which used to product good numbers
by .07 on Jan. 29, 2016

You don't have to go where everyone else is on a lake to catch fish. Pike are everyone all the time. Walleye like structure and its easy to predict what depth they will be at with a little research off the web given the time of year. This lake has a lot of fishing pressure but the walleye seem to be in abundance and of great size. If your coming from Edmonton and looking to catch and release walleye only but have fun doing it this is the lake for you. Try the north west side of the lake just south of the creek beside the large houses that have there own marina back from the lake, you'll see what I mean on google maps. Early july in about 10' - 12' of water. Had great success there but everyone clumps infront of the PP instead. Hope this helps folks. Keep your rod tips up and tip ups down! :)
by Soiler on Jan. 28, 2016

We tried near the White shacks but moved east tirades the point where we catch them in June. Used jawjacker with minnows tried jigs with minnows, rapala minnow, deer hair jigs. They usually work..... Any suggestions?
by Richard silver beach on Jan. 15, 2016
What kind of tackle are you using Tjp and outdoornut????
Out on the lake near mall Hurst Silver Beach Road been out for 3 hours no bites no sight of any fish. tip where are you fishing at in one of the white hots outside the boat launch
Very slow day near mulhurst. Tried all the usual spots only 2 bites in 4 hours! Will try pp side next time.
by Outdoornut72 on Jan. 15, 2016
Fished off the point at the provincial park in 18 to 28ft, caught 2 pike, 77 & 82cm, 3 walleye and a burbot in 4 hrs, not to bad of a day

by lwoods on Jan. 10, 2016
Fished from 11am-4pm at provincial park straight out from the beach in 12ft of water. Saw 3 pike, 1 walleye, and 1 burbot, but no bites. Tried everything in the box along with worms and smelts, but couldn't get the fish to take it.

by firstname.lastname@example.org on Jan. 8, 2016
Was out at Mulhurst Bay on January 03,2016. Lots of guys driving out. Only about 11 inches of ice with lots of cracking. Very slow day. Did not see one fish of any kind on camera in 8'-13'. Not one bite. Fished from 11:00 AM till dark.
by browning-gone-fishing on Jan. 8, 2016
Lake would be good to drive on with a smaller truck. Ice is 17 inches thick at pp. not seeing much today
by moeandeva on Jan. 7, 2016
are ppl driving on the lake? is it safe to do so??
by Deanleclair on Jan. 7, 2016
Was out at pp yesterday. Lots light bites 3 feet from bottom. Whites??? Finally. Around 6 my body caught a 54 cm walleye. He tagged it. One walleye feast or two a year is great tks for the whitefish tips

by Brad0420 on Dec. 31, 2015
Headed out there sat and Sunday for first time. Plan on doing the evening walleye bite. But also want to try my hand at whites. Never fished whites ever. Any suggestions. Also willing to hunt the perch. Any info appreciated.
by mountainman11 on Dec. 30, 2015
Thanks for the update nn I will be heading out in 3 week's.
To those who leave their trash in the lake, please stop. There are garbage cans at shore use them!
I hope you reported this to fish and game
by nn on Dec. 30, 2015
18 inches provincial park fair amount of walleye. To those of you that think it's ok to sink your empty beer cans to the bottom along with red solo cups .
They show up real nice in a camera are lakes suffer enough with out the extra trash.
Take you crap off the ice when you leave no real sportsman would ever do leave garbage on the lake or in the lake .. Show some class
by nn on Dec. 28, 2015
18 inches ice at Grandview large ice ridge along shore couldn't drive out no way around ridge. Fair amount of walleye on camera 10 to 12 feet water. clear and good visibility. Caught 3 about 24 inches long back in like they are suppose to go . Great day had a blast with family.
by moeandeva on Dec. 27, 2015
is there any fishing derbys in alberta
by mountainman11 on Dec. 26, 2015
On Dec 21 ice was 12 inches at provincial park. If it's clear ice that's good enough for half tons.
Your life your truck. You're call.
I was driving my titan on ghost lake on December 23 only 11 inches of ice clear and loud firm cracking
by The Pep on Dec. 26, 2015
Are people driving on at provincial park
1 pike over 100 cm
10 white fish if you can catch them. There are lot's usually suspended.
Walleye 0 unless you have tags. Or Indian with a net permit. Commercial fishing is no longer in Alberta. But Indians and metis can harvest with net still.
I've seen it in march 2015 and numbers are up.
Burbot is 1 February March burbot is 0
Perch is 5 over 25 cm.
I hope this helps. I wish people were more helpful on this site. A few are very helpful and I appreciate that. But alway look at you're regulations.
Happy fishing on the hard water and good luck
@pikeguy17 just look at the regs.
But I've caught pike. But you can't keep them unless they're over 100. Cm.
I've only seen 1 burbot my buddy got last year. Tons of walleye but you must get tags. Go to a licencing place and see if there is any undersubscribed tags left.
The white fish are there but go early morning and shallow.
I've seen perch in 4fow or less but nothing of size. You're aloud 5 over 25 cm for perch. Go to provincial park. About 400 yard's out is the drop off.
I fish there for walleye.
If you're fishing just to catch and release target the walleyes
by Pikeguy17 on Dec. 25, 2015
Hey guys I might be going to the lake for the first time in a few days. And good areas to check out? What are you catching out there?
by Randair on Dec. 22, 2015
Fished Provincial Park for 3 hours today in about 12-14' of water. Was pretty slow but caught 2 and had 3 bites. Was good to be out for the first time this year. And ever better not to get skunked.
by ArchAngel on Dec. 21, 2015
12 inch of ice just off the boat launch at the provincial park.
Caught nothing, could see right to the bottom, didn't see any movement .was at about 20 feet of water. The son had fun all that matters. Will be back
by Hookset on Dec. 20, 2015
10" of ice at Mulhurst and some guys driving on(I didn't). Fishing very slow.....
by moeandeva on Dec. 19, 2015
hey is the ice good enough for a truck to drive on it yet?
by Ineptflux on Dec. 19, 2015
There are literally accesses at almost every small village along the lake, Archangel. A lot people use the provincial park one on the south/southwest side of the lake.
by ArchAngel on Dec. 19, 2015
Hello everyone, just wondering where to access the lake? I have never fished here and don't know the area well. Heading there Monday. Thanks for the help
by Houston1 on Dec. 19, 2015
Hey browning - shoot me an email, email@example.com, might be going up there soon.
by browning-gone-fishing on Dec. 18, 2015
All the fish I saw were walleye, there were 5 that swam right by the cameras but we're not interested in anything that I had on my line!! Will be back in the lake in the new year! Hope to see you out there!
by Houston1 on Dec. 16, 2015
Bummer! Did you see any walleye?
by browning-gone-fishing on Dec. 16, 2015
Was out from provincial park in 20 ft of water saw about 7 fish all day not one out of the water. The fish were very slow moving and not interested in any of our presentations!
Good luck! Let us know how you make out
On the lake today. No fish yet but will for sure be getting some on the ice!!!
Ice Report: 10 in10 inchs of ice all the way out to 250-300 meters . Good solid Ice
by Houston1 on Dec. 15, 2015
Good question -has anyone been out there lately?
by Madfisherman 88 on Dec. 9, 2015
What the ice thickness there?
by MitchTheFisher on Dec. 8, 2015
Not very good, odd one and very picky. @wonderY
by WonderY on Dec. 3, 2015
Hi pikestalker. How's the white fishing there?
by Pikestalker on Nov. 26, 2015
Great action all year round at PP can't figure out why guys can't catch fish ? Landed 40 in a couple hours and the night bite is incredible . Anyone who wants to go just hit me up 👌 hopefully see u guys on the hard water
by MitchTheFisher on Nov. 26, 2015
Ice is 2-3"s on average as of November 25th

Just wondering where to fish Pigeon for walleye during the ice fishing season, fished mulhurst in the summer and done well but is another area better for the ice season
by edsontri2015 on Nov. 8, 2015
Anyone fishe here in rhe fall. Early November?
by dcameron999 on Oct. 11, 2015
Thanks. I ended up going yesterday and fished from the shore at the boat launch next to the PP. No fish on 4 rods in about 2 1/2 hours.
by Alumacomp on Oct. 10, 2015
Algae is gone. Fished off PP, very slow.
by dcameron999 on Oct. 9, 2015
Has anyone been there recently? How is the algea now?
by TheRook on Sep. 29, 2015
Went out Sunday in a 12ft Aluminum. Thought we were goin under for sure. Huge swells. Hard to fish, just trying to hold on. Finally went a bit shallower. Buddy caught a big 10lb burbot. Both filled a tag then got the !@#$ out of there!
by 4reel2day on Sep. 19, 2015
How's the lake today? Would like to go fishing but keep seeing the algae is bad, how bad is it?
by Alumacomp on Sep. 13, 2015
Algae is thick.
by Santos on Sep. 3, 2015
How bad is the algae
by Rawkindawg on Aug. 27, 2015
Polar Bay has a decent boat launch it was the one i used. It was not windy though. I was told to use mullhurt bay if it was windy to launch.

Heading to Pigeon this weekend. Where is the best boat launch for a 20' trailered boat?
by Rawkindawg on Aug. 26, 2015
Fished August 25th with my best fishing buddy! (he is 7) We caught walleye solid for 6 hrs from 1pm - 7pm in the middle of the algae. We landed about 90 fish with countless others releasing themselves.
by Coolcat on Aug. 16, 2015
Ya this lake is crazy! In 4 hours I've caught 105 walleye.
by Uncle Walter on Aug. 15, 2015
Great day at pigeon. Between 3 of us 40 walleye landed in 3.5 hours. Friend for Sask. totally impressed with the lake.
by Alumacomp on Aug. 12, 2015
Fished 10:00 am -12:00 pm off PP. Not a bite. Very few boats out.
by SlickWilly on Aug. 5, 2015
Windy. Lake was really choppy. A bit difficult in a canoe for fishing. Saw a lot a people catching fish. Beautiful location.
by Me1969 on Aug. 2, 2015
The fish are only edible if you have tags to keep some
by SlickWilly on Aug. 2, 2015
The boy and I are heading up tomorrow with the Canoe and the waders. Looking forward to a great Holiday Monday in the sun. Will update when we get back
by Houston1 on Aug. 1, 2015
Google pigeon Lake and blue green algae. The government says the filets are okay to eat. Personally, I don't always trust what the government says. Anyway, if you wait a few months it will clear up in the fall. That is when I head out there.
by DIABLO on Jul. 31, 2015
Can anyone please tell me is the fish edible at pidgeon lake? I'm newcomer to Canada, and i'm surpised how many lakes are spoiled with mercury. I am planing to take my family to the pidgeon for a weekend, Camping etc, and would like to barbecue some fish if i catch anything, but, i've been reading all kinds of comments, one say it's ok to eat, other aying it's not. So please help me solve the puzzle.
by carman.doan on Jul. 30, 2015
Troll at 12'-13'just outside the buoys and catch 20 wallley in an hour. Good for newbies as long as someone experienced removes the hook t View on Map
by Tjp on Jul. 29, 2015
We filled our tags yesterday near mulhurst. Minnows and trolling jigs in 12-14' of water. Caught over 40 in a few hours. Lake is starting to green up and smell. Will be back to fill the rest when the water turns hard. Enjoy.
by gloveman on Jul. 19, 2015
Fished on July 18 and between the 2 of us we caught over 100 walleye in 5 hours. A large percentage of those were over 50 cm/
by Dan and tammy on Jul. 19, 2015
If anyone knows I live in crystal springs and have a big cabin cruiser , if you can show me how to catch whites in the summer let me know
Anyone know how to get whites in the summer
by syncronized77 on Jul. 19, 2015
Was there a few weeks ago....unable to boat as many as the other reviewers but in the short time at the provincial park launch at 8 feet depth boated dirty dozen wallies 7-8 in the class A size. A few on crankbaits but mostly on frozen minnows and floater rig setup. Camped at zeiner not knowing anything out there and everyone in the boat was landing walleyes no matter which way you flung your lure...towards shore or away. Not sure how it would be now as the other lakes with walleye are starting to slow down.
by Hoagie on Jul. 13, 2015
Had a great weekend in the water. Saturday, the boat caught over 60 eyes. Sunday another 60 eyes and a couple big jacks. Most of the eyes were over 52cm. They are getting bigger! Caught a couple 4lbers
by tP on Jul. 7, 2015
This is an odd question. Where is the best burbot fishing? Best times are early morning or close to sunset, right?
The blue green algae was really bad on Thursday near sunset harbour. Over by mulhurst by Saturday, it was fine!
by FlounderPounder on Jul. 5, 2015
Hello all. Can anyone give me an update on the water conditions ? Any blue green algae this year?
by doylejhansen on Jul. 4, 2015
gloveman, you will have your chances to put your walleyes where your mouth is LOL
by Coolcat on Jul. 3, 2015
Ya but apperently they banned nets this year (except aboriginal)
by Fishingjob on Jul. 3, 2015
Interesting fact, 2014 was a record number of fish cought by netting.
by catchingallday on Jul. 1, 2015
The only thing worst than meat hunters are aboriginal net fisherman.... leave them in the lake for everyone to enjoy
MOney Grab,__You guys are nuts, the only reason there are fish there is the tag system. Freaking meat hunters!! Do you not understand that Alberta is not a population of 1 million any more. If all anglers take one fish it would be a desert out there. The only reason lakes within an hour of Edmonton have these fish are these regulations... what would you prefer, a night on the lake catching 60 fish and eating none, or a night on the lake with two fish and getting to eat it. I'd rather put them back and let'm grow, let the tag system work to thin out the herd and wait for the trophies.
by gloveman on Jun. 30, 2015
Your reasoning is partially correct Mr. Hansen.... but one of the biggest reasons you only caught a handful is because you didn't have the Captain with you!
by doylejhansen on Jun. 29, 2015
Yes we were out on Sunday the 28th, and all the spots that usually produce 80 to 100 fish, we caught only 6 fish?! My quess with the north wind, moving all things living to the south part of the lake and full moon coming, numbers were down? One thing is for sure they didn't jump out of the lake and went on holidays!! lol
by Ksmitty on Jun. 29, 2015
Anybody else experiencing slow fishing off the provincial park?
by Ksmitty on Jun. 28, 2015
Just the standard Alberta gross algae bloom. It's gross but shouldn't hurt you
by Pikeguy17 on Jun. 27, 2015
Is there any of the blue green algae? Want to be able to swim as well as fish
by kelster on Jun. 26, 2015
Right off the pier walleye like crazy
by Ksmitty on Jun. 26, 2015
Camping at the provincial park. How are they biting? Depth?
by Zhunter on Jun. 21, 2015
Fished last week. Launched at mulhurst didn't have to head out too far before we hit the walleye. 80 fish in a couple hours all between 45-55cm had two tags for over 50 cm sure tasted not bad over the fire. Not sure why they don't allow 1 per person. Also spotted the biggest whitefish I have ever seen floating on top of the water with the gulls at him.
by oggie on Jun. 21, 2015
Didn't print my first comments. Every thing we do today is a money grab. I got a draw for pigeon lake this year. Each of two fish that I keep costs me $7.50. What a joke. Wecaught some disfigured fish this year. Their could a disease in the fish already because of the amount of fish in the lake. The biologist's seem to think that they know best on harvesting the fish. Instead of giving an angler a fish or two to eat they would sooner leave go bad. They screwed up the white fish already. It's all a money grab.
by Rhino101 on Jun. 20, 2015
Fishing was great today....why you can't keep any fish here is beyond me....caught 50 to 60 walleye this morning and was off the lake by 11:30 ???
by oggie on Jun. 17, 2015
Water was quite clear at the PP yesterday. Could see the eyes coming up under the boat. Fishing is great for young children who have a good muscles. They fight very hard. My grand daughters had a ball. Very cool was their explanation.
by C2tus on Jun. 17, 2015
Water has been dirty and murky for the past few days.
by Bearhunter52 on Jun. 12, 2015
Caught over 100 Walleye in 4 hours on West side between 4 of us. Minnows and scented baits worked best
by gloveman on Jun. 9, 2015
Fished with a Buddy on June7-caught 70 Walleye-a good day!
by Maxum on May. 31, 2015
Minnows was the answer. My daughter about 40 to 50 pickerel on Saturday. Right at shore beside the boat launch. It was a great day. Use a pickerel rig with minnows.
by Maxum on May. 28, 2015
Has anyone been fishing from shore at the provincial campground? Have they been biting? What are they going after?
by DM Outdoor Adventures on May. 27, 2015
Fished here the morning of 5/22/15 for Walleye. Slower than normal. 20 fish caught over a couple hours amongst 2 people. 43cm-53cm in size.
by enf303 on May. 24, 2015
Would love to catch a burbot. Where's the best place?
by Captain Jack on May. 23, 2015
Do yourself a favour and go shore fishing for rainbow (keep 5 per person no size issues) at Carson Pegasis. Near white court. Use marshmallows or worms. Buy bait at the store. It's set up for shore fishing with a huge wooden dock.
Even better. Rent s small boat and troll a willow leaf and small spinner. Bang bang bamg%uD83D%uDE0A
by Pikecrazy on May. 22, 2015
What's the story with this lake Any shore fishing?
by Captain Jack on May. 19, 2015

by Houston1 on Mar. 30, 2015
Thanks for the info!
by mountainman11 on Mar. 30, 2015
Great weekend fishing. I'm not attempting to go to the lake for the April 1-15 . A guy fell in through the ice yesterday. He's ok. Stay off pressure cracks that's how he broke through.
by mountainman11 on Mar. 28, 2015
The gate to the campground is closed. But provincial park is open
You can walk on with caution and kick out holes. There is no open water. But the ice is starting to get chunky as you drill. So if you mean casting from shore than I would say no.
BTW I got skunked today. But there is always tomorrow
Auto correct. Try your best to read what I posted
On the lake right now. Quad helped ice is good for sleds and quads. The approach has a tiny pressure ridge. Use caution. For fishing I will update latter. I'm at the provincial park. About approaches dozen people out her March 28
by koobiedog on Mar. 28, 2015
Was on the ice till 930 last night. You can walk on from provincial boatlaunch but bring waterproof boots as there is an inch or so surface melt. About 500m to NE you will see holes around the drop off area. No hits till 5pm, then 4 pike in 30 min, all around 70 -80 cm.all back to live another day! 1 over 50 cm walleye around 7pm released, 2 more pike in the 70cm range, then 745 till 9 pm managed to fill my 43-50cm tags. Wisibility about 12ft down. The highlight, 930pm, 4 ft water hooked into a 68 cm wallie figured bout 6-8lbs on tip up.sent her back to spawn. If weather stays like this, getting on and off over the pressure ridge by the boat launch may be tricky. Good way to end my 2014 season!
by Houston1 on Mar. 27, 2015
Is the gate open to the provincial Park? Can you fish from shore ?
by mountainman11 on Mar. 27, 2015
I'm fishing tomorrow March 28 and Sunday. Hopefully by the provincial park.
So if there's any questions about the condition ask me I will answer.
Thanks for the heads up. Yes it will be me and 2 buddies. 1 quad. Hopefully I will land some perch or whites in 2-3 fow. Any tips for them? Has anyone been getting on by the beach?
by Tjp on Mar. 26, 2015
I wouldn't risk it with a truck. The ice jam is too deep for a truck. I winched myself out. Especially if it warms up. Bring a skidoo or quad and bring a buddy with you to help you if you get stuck. Good luck!
by mountainman11 on Mar. 24, 2015
Just wondering if a truck would make it on at the provincial park. I'm heading out Saturday. I would appreciate your feedback.
I will still walk on but would like your thoughts on the boat launch conditions please
by Tjp on Mar. 24, 2015
Got my tags filled out yesterday! Good day out front of the provincial park boat launch in 20' of water. Jaw jacker caught a few jack and a nice pickerel and the rapala airplane jig w minnow head caught the other keeper. Watch out for the ice jam in front of boat launch...made for an interesting quad ride back to parking lot!
by Bbarber on Mar. 23, 2015
Is there open water along shore? Can one still access by foot?
by MitchTheFisher on Mar. 10, 2015
Went to grandview for a few hours to try my old spot for whites but saw nothing, not if the white population is down or if they are in another area of the Lake now.
by oggie on Mar. 10, 2015
High pressure ridge at provincial park.Getting on is a little iffy. Water is building up. Went on at Grandview today. Pressure ridge is about 3 feet high. Water is starting to gather as well.Seen some trucks across the lake towards Mulhurst, so they are getting on there. The eyes and jacks were biting for about an hour from 11:00 to 12:00 Then they just turned off. Was fun while it lasted.
by SteveC on Mar. 10, 2015
has anyone been on the ice, hows it doing with all the warm weather?
by Interestededmontonian on Mar. 7, 2015
Thanks Jimmy wilson
by Jimmy wilson on Mar. 6, 2015
Provincial park on the south side or mulhurst bay on the north both have great access
by Interestededmontonian on Mar. 6, 2015
Sorry new to this site. Where is the best access.
by Clave on Mar. 6, 2015
Filled my tags no problem. Had to move a few times to find them/correct size. Could drive anywhere. Ice was very good all over.
by BiggieB on Mar. 6, 2015
Any luck catch walleye? Still got tags I need to fill!!! Ahhh
by Soiler on Feb. 23, 2015
Was out on Sat. Much easier getting around on the west side of the lake... A lot more snow & surface water on the east sides.
by Mikejulien12 on Feb. 23, 2015
Thanks Bearhunter! I will try that out!
by Soiler on Feb. 21, 2015
Was out yesterday with the 1/2 ton. The warm weather softened up the drifts but could still get around. Some water on the ice now but sat's colder weather should stiffen it all up again.
by Bearhunter52 on Feb. 20, 2015
Hey Mike julian--go to north end of lake in 9-11 ft of water and you will fill your tags in short order. Lots biting. North west of Mulhurst
by Clave on Feb. 20, 2015
As of Monday afternoon a half ton 4X4 was fine. I don't think a 2 wheel drive would be able to go every where but in the normal "ice road" even that would have been fine. The problem was the sun/ice crust that had formed on the top of the snow took some pushing to get through. Other than that you could go any where except up creeks etc. Not sure if much has changed since Monday though. Good luck to you
by WU J on Feb. 20, 2015
You can access at the Provincial Park.
by HookedOnHalo on Feb. 19, 2015
Is there good access around the lake with a 1/2 ton? Any water on the lake or drifts that will keep you limited to the trails? I was wondering if I need to take my quad along.
by Clave on Feb. 19, 2015
I was there on Monday and it was great ice. 20 to 24 inches. As long as you do not drive up a creek etc. you should be fine
by Mikejulien12 on Feb. 18, 2015
How will all of this warm weather affect the ice?? Will it still be safe for a 1/2 ton?
by foothillzman on Feb. 17, 2015
out at the prov park 8:30 til dark on the 14th and got a pike, missed one, but didn't see a single walleye, whitie or perch on the fish cam all day

Does anyone know anything about that Bloomfield Lake SW of Battle
by Soiler on Feb. 15, 2015
If you're looking to fill your walleye tags, the evening bite has been pretty good lately. Find a spot with some structure nearby & you should be good to go....

Anyone know if any whites are biting out by mulhurst?
by Mikejulien12 on Feb. 13, 2015
I spent the day on Thursday fishing the drop off in front of the Provincial Park. Early in the day I pulled a nice jack out and then nothing for the next 4 hours! I have been struggling to fill my Walleye tags, has anyone else had success? After my third unsuccessful trip I am ready to give up!

by Jumboperch13 on Feb. 11, 2015
Thanks for the help captain jack very much appreciated
by DC168 on Feb. 11, 2015
As the walleye and pike population rises, the white fish and perch is hard to find. The tag program for walleye and no keeper for less than 1 metre pike will illiminate white fish and perch here. As the food chain broken, eventually, walleye and pike will run out of food and end up eating themself.
by Franky on Feb. 11, 2015
Anyone seeing any whites at Pigeon, if so where and what depth
by Little Guy on Feb. 11, 2015
Comment: I love ice fishing and I live on Pigeon Lake. Please, please don't put poles or logs down holes to mark fishing spots and don't leave anything behind on the ice! We already had one death on the lake we don't need another one because someone on a snow sled run into something you left behind! Thanks
by Captain Jack on Feb. 10, 2015
Drive in off of the Prov Park. Drill hole at the drop off where it goes to 18 ft. (Or where the other trucks are) 😃
Use Minnows on a small jig head. Tie direct to line. You can also use a hook and just a minnow. Let it hit the bottom and small wiggle.
You'll catch mostly walleye and The odd pike.
by Jumboperch13 on Feb. 10, 2015
Hi I have never been to this lake before and I was wondering where is the best place to get on I have a couple of walleye tags that need to be filled and I was also wondering is there a good perch bite?

Crystal springs is on the SW side of the last..... We went out yesterday, did well on tip ups for 'eyes & jacks but weren't able to hook up on the few whites we saw. The few we did have hits from were the most interested in red wire worms....
by ABHIP on Jan. 29, 2015
jerry372... haven't fished pigeon this year ,i was hoping also to get some feed back to the whitefish population. in the past i've fished at mulhurst bay and heard that crystal springs is a good place tho i have not fished there, i believe it is the NE corner of the lake,maybe someone can confirm that.Good luck and let us know how you make out....
by jerry372 on Jan. 29, 2015
Coming out from Edmonton, and have no idea which part of the lake to go to catch some whites. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any info.
by Coolcat on Jan. 29, 2015
Well then where do u catch them and with what hook? I've never caught whites or burbs.
by Soiler on Jan. 28, 2015
I grew up fishing this lake. The only thing I can't seem to find anymore are the perch. The Burb's seem to still do well as well as the whites. The whites have just changed what they do I think. With all the walleye now, they've had to change their feeding habits, just what I believe..... Not saying I have lots of luck with catching em but I do seem em down the hole still.
by Bear3113 on Jan. 27, 2015
January 27/15 sat here all morning and afternoon. Not even a fricken Minnow showed up. Tried a few areas around mulhurst bay. This lake is brutal for ice fishing. Been here twice this month caught two like last round.
by Coolcat on Jan. 25, 2015
The only thing I've ever caught out of here is a 30" pike and loads of walleye. Never even heard of anything else in this lake.
by ABHIP on Jan. 25, 2015
After many questions about whitefish ...everybody either can't read or just not saying they haven't seen any .IFISH is a great place to get some info, not like the whole AB fisherman are going to show up.How about bourbot anyone caught any? just askin.....

Thx cool cat. How far out from the launch? Left or right? Talked to some buddies they said straight out about 75 yards. Any info?
Ya perch pirate that's ur safest bet. Go to the drop off usually they'll be there.
by Perch pirate on Jan. 22, 2015
Any info on the walleye?? Want to head out on Saturday and fill my tags. Been at slave all winter pulling them in. Looking forward to an hour drive not 3. Any help would be nice. Only fished there in the summer a couple years ago. Heard the provincial park may be a good start?? Thoughts?

by Duramax01 on Jan. 21, 2015
Fin Finder...walleye are on a draw system. This means that you have to apply for a "tag" to catch this species in most of the lakes in Alberta. If you've been keeping them in Pigeon Lake without a tag...tsk tsk tsk.

Lots of walleye around. 22' we got about 20 of them. Green smelt or natural on a single hook 2" - 2' off the bottom. Go with a few people so you can set up over a range of depths to find them. Good luck!
by Riderprider on Dec. 18, 2014
Oh ice was great. 11-13" everywhere.
Fished all day yesterday at the PP. It would have had to pick up a fair amount to be slow. Not sure where all the walleye go that infest that place in open water but they ain't there now.
by fearnofish on Dec. 16, 2014
Fished pigeon all weekend. Got 3 pike, and about 20 walleye. Walleye were hitting mostly at night or just before dark. Pike mostly on the drop off 5-10ft, walleye out at 22' Fished out from the provincial park. Ice is safe, Cracking all day and night, if your going out farther than about 200 yards do some spot checks.. We set up the hut on 8" of ice but 20 feet further out we found a spot only 2" thick. All in all a good weekend out! Medium smelts just off the bottom, natural or green worked best.

Good like on finding any decent perch. I've fished it for several years now and only have only found wee ones. Whites, not that commercial fishing is dead, hooray! They should start to make a comeback. Maybe a couple years yet though. I'll try it out next week and report back.

by gloveman on Nov. 7, 2014
Thank you for your interest D.Hansen as to where Parkers Point is.Go directly south-east of the boat launch at the Provincial Park [I suggest trolling as you will more than likely catch a few along the way].The trick is to find the drop off directly off of the point but by reading your previous blogs you will find it and catch plenty! Good luck yo you!
by doylejhansen on Nov. 6, 2014
hey Gloveman, where's Pakers Point on the lake? What did the eight pound walleye hit on, and what technique? cheers doyle
by gloveman on Nov. 6, 2014
As DHansen wrote on Oct 21/14 open water fishing is not done yet! My buddy and myself caught over 70 Walleye today Nov6 off the infamous drop-off' We also caught 2-8 pounders just off of Parkers Point.Shorter days though but still great fishing in a shorter day!
by Dan83 on Oct. 24, 2014
What is the verdict on whitefish and perch on this lake the last few years. I haven't been on Pigeon for quite some time but I was gonna try and come up this year.
by doylejhansen on Oct. 21, 2014
Open water fishing isn't quite finished yet! Myself and a buddy went out to Pigeon Lake on Monday the 20th of October. Of course the weather was off the charts. Fished from 9 to 4 and boated over 100 walleye. My buddy filled his "a" tags" no problem, with a four pounder and a three and 3/4 pound walleye. The three other boats around were catching nothing, so I gave them the magic jigs and the technique, and soon their two boats filled their tags. Interesting story next ... at around three o'clock, a sea doo coming at full speed towards the group of the four boats, including us! I thought what stupid kid at the end of October is out here and in shorts!!?? It is when I saw the shirt/vest and a uniform, some badges and a gun. That's right a game warden. This warden came at full speed and went directly to the boat in the middle of our group. To make a long story short .. the older guy in the boat was charged with failing to tag his walleye(s) as soon as caught (it's the rules) that I know. So when it came to our turn he said do you have any fish to declare ... we said, "we might be over our limit" .... looking at the big cooler, he said let's see ... Dwight then opened the cooler and proudly presented our last tub of minnows, and proudly showed them off ... anyways we had one tagged at the time and everything was cool ... yes he also laughed ..here's the ending ..... asked, "how would you know to come here and right to the boat in the middle of all of us?" He said simple we received a phone call, his off duty buddy, the fourth boat phoned it in! As soon as the game cop showed up the fourth boat (with three people) left and went straight across the lake! If it would of been me, I would of told the other fisherman hey tag that fish, or I will call my off duty buddy!? But that is just me .... cheers ... doyle _

Went out Sunday, August 31st fished between 12-3pm. Caught 25 walleye all between 2-3lbs. Used minnows as bait. Really fun afternoon of fishing!
by doylejhansen on Aug. 31, 2014
Fished the lake on both the 30th and the 31st, over 100 fish caught. I would like to start this thread and see what type of positive input comments can be made!?__I believe the tag system should be as follows: class a 55 to 60 cm (1 tag), 50 to 54 cm (1 tag), 45 to 49 cm (2 tags), 40 to 44 cm (2 tags) __That way I think the lake can than start producing 4 - 5 -6 -7 pound walleye, this size would be catch and release, and in 5 years could very be a world wide fishing destination?__I have flown into Saskatchewan resorts, and we caught more and bigger walleye in the last two days at pigeon than those camps on the Church Hill river system!

by Riderprider on Aug. 27, 2014
Went out last night (August 26) and absolutely nailed them. Didn't matter what you had on as long as there was a minnow on it. All 5 of us had a fish on at the same time and 4 of us did more than once. Lake was a little green but nothing crazy. Awesome night.
by Wall eyes on Aug. 17, 2014
Great afternoon fishing. Between three of us caught at least 40 walley and a pike. Minnows beat the crawlers big time. Thanks riderpride. Go riders.
by Riderprider on Aug. 15, 2014
Minnows are the key. I've tried leeches and been out fished 2-1. Haven't tried crawlers but I can't imagine it's any different.

What are you guys and gals using for bait to catch walleyes? I'm taking the kids up in mid-September camping at Pigeon Lake Provincial Park. Thanks for the GPS coordinates Jaged1980 and Birdog. It looks like good schools 100-200m offshore from the campgrounds.

Anyone know what the launch on the South end of the lake is like at Ma-Me-O?

We have been here for over a week camping at the provincial campground and have fished most days. We have brought in over 100 Walleye. We had Class A tags and have brought in too many to count that would have worked. Blue Green hasn't been an issue at all no signs of large mats and we've been in and out of the water without issue.

I am so impressed with how Pigeon has rebounded, I hope they keep slot size limits. Anyone have any tips on perch?

Undersubscribed licences are different than draws. That's where you'll find the walleye licences now that the draw for them is over. They're first-come-first-served. I haven't had to do it since they changed the system but you can check the albertarelm or mywildalberta websites for a list of available licences and directions on how to reserve the licence so you can buy it. Good luck!

if nothing show up mostlikely its too late
by Atkinss on Jun. 18, 2014
When I click draws nothing comes up. I read the draw is over for walleye?
by bruno27 on Jun. 17, 2014
they taste really good had a few last week and to get tag go to albertarelm and they should have some left class a is 50 cm and bigger class b is 43 to 50 cm and class c 43 cm and smaller class a is 2 walleyes and class b and c are 3 each
by Atkinss on Jun. 17, 2014
How's the walleye taste from here? I'm looking at getting a walleye tag ( need to figure out how still ) and cook one up when the wife and I come camping.

Went out yesterday to the drop off and got skunked. Had a couple bites but really soft.
by iFish Guest on Mar. 31, 2014
Fishing was pretty good for walleye after 8:30 PM Saturday night, most were over 50cm but managed to fill 5/6 class b tags.
by JNB_On_Ice on Mar. 30, 2014
It was a successful day. Both brother and I filled our tags! On to focusing on whites and perch. One meter pike is difficult to land. Best of luck everyone and be safe.
by Typical John on Mar. 30, 2014
Went out for the evening Mar. 24 and got a few soft bites on a Cicada with a full minnow on, so changed to a small jig with just the head of the minnow. That triggered the bite, caught my slot size b all three tags filled in 10 minutes. Nice after being skunked a couple of times.
by Linemanpete on Mar. 28, 2014
Saw a whitey, ling and pike on camera today managed to get the ling and pike to bite. Was chasing walleye for class b tags and saw none at the provincial park. Must walk on huge heave at the launch.
by JNB_On_Ice on Mar. 23, 2014
Ok Rapa. My brother and I are going to head out early in the morning. Hope to be on ice for 7am. Fill tags and Than head to Gull for whitefish and perch. We normally enter through Mulhurst... Only place we know. Lol.

Anyone have a ice report?
by JNB_On_Ice on Mar. 20, 2014
I would love a hand... I would like to try and head out the last Sunday of March. Is this too late? If I can go, I will message you Saturday. Will this work for you and if so how early you want to head out. I plan on heading out to Mulhurst about 8am. If I can't fill them by noon, I head to (Brownlow) Gull and try for white and perch.
by Rapalaroland on Mar. 19, 2014
I was gonna see if you wanted a hand filling them last weekend JNB. I have have had some good success on this lake in the winter
by JNB_On_Ice on Mar. 19, 2014
Sorry Rapa...I just saw your message now. Been very busy. I have two tags....hoping to try before season is up!
by Albertwild17 on Mar. 18, 2014
I am hoping to get on the ice this sunday looking for walleye for tags does anyone know some good suggestions for spots and what to use would greatly apreciate it. Tight lines everybody
by PLH on Mar. 16, 2014
Snap...yeah I guess the fish might be moving in and out. I saw more fish in the Grandview area the last couple times out ( compared the the provincial park). I fished the Prov. Park yesterday...very slow. Moved around...very slow. Only saw 4 whites, 1 burbut, and a small perch from 11am-7pm. 23-10 FOW. I have walleye tags so targeting that fish. Maybe the Park is getting over fished now?No one else was catching...only the odd pike. I will probably move around the lake a bit until the seasons over. I wouldn't mind catching a few nice whites as well as filling my walleye tags. The whites should start moving into shallow water and biting better as the shoreline ice starts melting. Happy fishing...
by Fishingfarmer on Mar. 16, 2014
We went out for 2 hours and punched 10 holes. We didn't see a single fish all day. Worst ice fishing trip we've every had!

Was on the ice today .... Fishing was great .... Walleye are amazing size and shape !!!!
by Linemanpete on Mar. 15, 2014
Jnb I'm heading out tomorrow bright and early still have 3 to fill 43-50 we could divide the lake up?
by Rapalaroland on Mar. 15, 2014
JNB how many tags u got?
by JNB_On_Ice on Mar. 15, 2014
At mulhurst bay in the morning and saw nothing. Had a couple of bites with tip up and was able to land one pike 73cm! Put him back cause he was 27cm too short. Biggest pike I have ever landed! It was a slow day...might not fill tags again this year! Oh well...try a few more times at Gull and it's a rap.
by Wazz on Mar. 15, 2014
Was out at jonsonia sandholm on NE side this morning, easy to get on and around, ice a full auger deep, saw a couple whites on camera, but all we caught and released were walleye walleye walleye! Back to gull we go:) good luck to all
by iFish Guest on Mar. 14, 2014
Does anybody know if lake is still ok to drive on.
by Wazz on Mar. 14, 2014
Was thinking of trying an adventure fishing for the "huge whites" at Pigeon this Saturday with elderly parents, but the lake reports this year havent indicated one whitefish being caught all winter at Pigeon. Is it worth the drive, is anyone catching any, if so where abouts, depth, tackle? Whats the ice like, can you get on in the north, east, south, west? Any feedback appreciated, thank you, and great fishing:)
by SNAP on Mar. 13, 2014
That is interesting PLH. Are you basing this on recent experience? I used to fish around Grandview a lot but stopped after the fish seemed to disappear. Have you had good action at Crystal this year?
by PLH on Mar. 11, 2014
Fishing for whites at Pigeon... This time of the year fish in 6-10 feet of water. I was out at crystal springs last week. Saw numerous whites in about 10-12 feet.They are moving into swallow water now (warmer water). You could also try the provincial park (just north of crystal springs/poplar Bay Area). I have always had good luck with a copper wire worm (small)...with a maggot. Make sure to attach your hook to the line so the hook is horizontal. Use line size 6-8 lb...use fluorocarbon leader at least 3ft long. Whites are very nervous and notice anything unnatural in the water. Fluorocarbon line is virtually invisible in the water. When a white is coming to your hook hold it still (don't jig) but turn the hook so the maggot is facing the whites mouth. He should grab it at that point ... Than set the hook gently. You could also try a small brass coloured wetaskwin hook. If using a camera set it at least 8ft away or point it down the hole. Better yet if you spot the whites on camera remove it. Use camera sparingly when fishing whites. Cameras don't seem to both othe fish species... Good luck and have fun with the family. Weather should be very nice.

Slow fishing today at the provincial park. Caught three jack and a burbut (15-20 ft). Didn't see any walleye or whites. A group next to me caught a couple eyes... (all day). One 56cm. No one else caught much for walleyes. Fished until 6pm. Still no walleyes? The ice was 27" ... About 24" of hard good ice. Fishing at pigeon can be challenging at times.

Ice is decent. Lots of trucks and a few cars on the lake today. Slow day fishing, only caught a jack and a couple of walleye. Walleye were quite skiddish or non interested for the most part. A few schools of perch went by but they were pretty tiny. No sign of whitefish or burbot.

How is the algae bloom on pigeon lake?
by PlatinumBarMan on Aug. 21, 2013
Was out last Sunday from late morning to mid afternoon (yes, probably not the best time for fishing) but still ended up with around 50 nice sized walleye. Caught em mostly on slip bobbers but also a few jigging and trolling. Tried to stay out of the water as much as possible with the blue-green algae warnings.
by iFish Guest on Aug. 18, 2013
got back from pigeon and it wasn't one of those days we are used of having, me and a buddy arrived a 8:30 am and fished to 4 pm, went to the provincial park and tried all methods and I mean all methods we got around 30 fish, my buddy caught 20 and I caught 10, a great day but picked off a fish here there and everywhere .... bloom was in full splendor and did not effect fishing and we are not in the hospital lol ... here's a huge tackle tip for all pike and walleye fisherpersons .... THIS LURE WILL OUT FISH ANYTHING THAT YOU HAVE IN YOU BOX, WHILE ON THE TROLL, WE HAVE RUN INDEPENDANT TESTS OURSELVES .... THIS LURE OUT FISHES OTHER LURES 5 TO 1 .... IT IS MADE BY RAPALA AND IS THE MINNOW RAP PATTERN IN THE MR11 OR MR 9 SIZES, THIS IS THE THE COLOR, AND THIS IS WHAT MAKES THIS LURE SPECTACULAR, , THIS COLOR IS HARD AS HEC TO FIND .... BUT IF YOU CAN FIND THE COLOR BUY AS MANY AS YOU CAN, AROUND TEN DOLLARS ... RAPALA LISTS THIS COLOR AS 'BLEEDING ORIGINAL SHAD' [BOSD] ..... cheers doyle .... ps the lake isn't closed just the warning is out for the bloom ....

by iFish Guest on Aug. 10, 2013
your advise was the best ever, went back to the provincial park, and followed the advise that was given by this website, fished from 9 to 5, caught about 30 on the troll, and with jigs/minnows with double tails, in white or yellow, that was another 35 fish, and with the minnows, the biggest walleye of the day, 50 to 58 cms, around 4,5 pounds, had to stop weighing the fish, since the scale is in the bottom of the lake, going to roll the dice and fill the tags (50 cm) in the fall maybe they will have 2 months to grow another pound or so .... again thank you for the advise ..... cheers .... doyle ....

Was out at pigeon today. The place is a mess. Lots of dead fish washed up on the shore. The public launch was closed due to flooding. Stay away! Best of luck to all te anglers out there

@Jimmy I launched off the Prov Park boat launch and there are no fees there. Great spot to launch and good fishing.
by cjrm99 on Jun. 4, 2013
@jimmy. Never had to pay at Mulhurst or prov park in years past. Have not been out this year. I assume it's the same
by Jimmy wilson on Jun. 3, 2013
Do you have to pay to launch a boat at pigeon lake??
by Trevor Puhalskie on May. 27, 2013
Caught approx 30 Sunday east of provincial park drifting in 20-12 ft of water. Dragging bottom with jigs, mid afternoon. Nothing over 5 lbs.
by Jonnyboy869 on May. 27, 2013
The boat launch in mulhurst bay is good and lots of parking just up the road. North east side.

What is the best boat launch location for this lake
by Toadwillie on May. 26, 2013
Can anyone tell me if this lake is suitable for float tube fishing?
by iFish Guest on May. 26, 2013

Just spoke with someone from Pigeon Lake, and there is still some ice on the lake going in to the long weekend, whatever you do; do it safely!!
by Quade on May. 12, 2013
Any idea when Ice will be off pigeon??
by iFish Guest on May. 11, 2013
Can anyone post ice off? Thanks
by iFish Guest on May. 7, 2013
is there still ice on these lakes, anyone know when we can take a boat out. We are very new to this and have absolutely no idea where to go boating before May long weekend, if anywhere. Any thoughts?
by Wally1 on May. 7, 2013
Any watching lake for ice out. Gull dark colored but slow going
by Rapalaroland on Apr. 17, 2013
Hey Sdoring if you read the regulations yourself there is a portion of the lake that is open from April 1st to April 16th. April 17th till May 14th is when the lake is totally closed to angling.
by Sdoering on Apr. 16, 2013
I guess some people don't follow reg's , season is don't until may 15th everywhere guys, June 1st in some places, grab a reg's book people.
by Martin on Apr. 13, 2013
Has anyone been out today? Can a guy still walk on?
by iFish Guest on Apr. 8, 2013
Was out there sunday, weather was crappy, saw nothing, might try different spot
by AlbertaKT on Apr. 8, 2013
Can be good along the rocky drop offs. Watch out gets shallow fastView on Map
by Patrick on Apr. 7, 2013
Fished the provincial park on Saturday. Never started until 1pm. Very slow, no bits and never say a fish. A couple guys caught three eyes about 4pm and nothing after that. They caught them in about 12ft near a drop-off at the park. I think the weather was effecting the bit. I plan to head out this Friday or Saturday. I think with better weather the fishing should improve. Hoping to catch some whites. I saw some about a week ago in shallow water, about 6ft. One had to be 3-4lbs. This will be the last weekend before close. Good luck.
by iFish Guest on Apr. 6, 2013
It's closed now
by Martin on Apr. 6, 2013

by Jimmy Jigger on Mar. 17, 2013
Went out for a few hours last Monday and caught a fat Ling. Had another one try to eat my camera. Didn't see anything else. Always good to at least catch a fish, even when ya gotta let them go.
by iFish Guest on Mar. 17, 2013
Was out last Monday and caught a fat Ling Cod. Had another one attacking my camera. Catch and release but still a lot of fun!

by Eskimosis on Jan. 19, 2013
We fished from 11:am to 5:30pm. We fished by the provincial park and caught six fish. One walleye one burbot and four pike and a few bites and saw lots. And a good day.
by Fishing nut on Jan. 19, 2013
Well the pike r sure floating around and hitting !! But no walleye
by turkishtank on Jan. 19, 2013
how's the ice thickness?
by Funfishing on Jan. 13, 2013
Where are the perch at?
by Eskimosis on Jan. 12, 2013
Just to add, we fished straight of boat launch NE 18 ft deep. Might be better spots on the lake...
Fished from about 10am to 5pm...saw a few walleye and pike. Caught one pike...another got away. Pretty slow day.
by Soiler on Jan. 10, 2013
Anyone been out to the island lately?
by Fireman on Jan. 9, 2013
Hit a good spot today for walleye and jacks this afternoon just to the north of the prov. boat launch and if someone knows where the perch are that would help me too
by fishman on Jan. 9, 2013
Anyone catching perch? If so where is a good spot
by Black Panther on Jan. 7, 2013

Fished off Prov Park boat launch today and we were 1 of only 3 groups here all day. We were the first on at 11:00 and last off at 4:00. Was very strange to see so few people out. Anyway, Caught 2 jack, 2 walleye, and a burb. Didn't see any whites. Opted to walk on but others were driving on no prob in SUVs. Walleye are looking very healthy.
by Firevent on Dec. 28, 2012
Is anyone driving on at the provincial park?
by CanadianBadass on Dec. 28, 2012
Last year i was not able to drive on by mulhurst due too chunks of ice pushing up and blocking access, it may be different this year, Good Luck
by Fishingnut on Dec. 27, 2012
Has anyone been out ?? Can on get on ice by mulhurst
by RapalaRoland on Dec. 23, 2012
Yep the regs for this lake make no sense!!! Taking all the big breeder fish outta a lake!!!
by Kelvin on Dec. 23, 2012
The regs on this lake are very interesting. 25 cm perch only? 100 cm jack only? They might as well make this a catch & release fishery.
by Matty on Dec. 17, 2012
16 inches of nice ice, 4 inches of snow on top no bites yet
by Pikster on Dec. 16, 2012
Heard it is about 10 inches

by Big R on Jul. 6, 2012
Thank you, much appreciated!
by Fishn'dude on Jun. 27, 2012
Last time out we caught pike at the mulhurst boat launch before walleye fishing.
by BIG R on Jun. 26, 2012
Im going out to pigeon this weekend, fishing from shore since my boat recently got stolen. Does anyone know any good spots for pike from shore? Much appreciated.
by Angelfish on Jun. 12, 2012
Reserve.AlbertaParks.ca sent out a notice that Pigeon Lake campground is seeing some construction. August 7 it will close for season with exception of Loop A, boat launch, and day use area will be open all summer. Zeiner campground is open.

by RtRtRt on May. 12, 2012

Ice is 50% gone but not quite ready for boats yet. Maybe by the weekend. Wizard is melted.
by Fisherman on Apr. 30, 2012
Thanks keep me posted?
by Farrah on Apr. 29, 2012
Nope, still ice on the lake today.
by Fisherman on Apr. 28, 2012
Is the ice off of the lake yet?
by RapalaRoland on Apr. 11, 2012
Yep I see it 2 sorry. Says it in the synopsis but not on the app. Maybe I should b the one reading hahaha. I
by Cory on Apr. 10, 2012
My bad, I was going on the info on here. After checking the regs, there are portions of the lake open and I apologize for not knowing the proper regs! Cheers.
by Linemanpete on Apr. 10, 2012
It clearly states here http://albertaregulations.ca/fishingregs/pp2.html open April 1 to April 16.
by RapalaRoland on Apr. 10, 2012
Hmm then howcome on here it says may 15 till march 31 the season is open april 1st till may 14 closed
Lake is open april 1 to April 16 check the regs folks.
Catch and release or not u can't fish when the season is closed!! A magazine u should consider reading is the 2011 and 2012 fishing synopsis. It is loaded with tons of information like when the fishing seasons open and close. Or better yet use this great app and check it out. What u r doing isn't catch and release it is called illegal fishing.
Hey Zen, the lake is CLOSED to fishing after March 31 period. Follow the rules man!
by Zen on Apr. 10, 2012
It was catch and release
by RapalaRoland on Apr. 9, 2012
Hey Zen better check the regs bud!!!

Hey can anyone tell me Wich side of the lake is good for whites? I wanna go on Wednesday but I don't no where to
by RapalaRoland on Feb. 24, 2012
Lake was netted this year lotsa whites caught!!! Still can catch a few tho
by thirstyman on Feb. 23, 2012
wondering if any whites left in this lake used to be so good for whites fished it every winter for years till fish n wildlife screwd up the lake with their walleye program.
by RapalaRoland on Feb. 18, 2012
Was out 2 day was unreal walleye fishing caught over a dozen!!!! Smallest was 2.5 lbs and biggest around 8. My buddy had walleye tags and we filled them no problem.I agree with the walleye 2 b kept r under 43 cm but 2 take a 100 cm pike makes no sense as those r the big spawners in the lake.I'd way rather eat a 4 lb fish and not take 5000 fish outta the lake by keeping a big fish. Screwy regs on that lake. Other than that was a great day
by #4fisherman on Jan. 21, 2012
Nobody out near Mameo. Now I know why. No fish. Haven't seen any on either side of the island.

by Skeptikal on Jan. 1, 2012
Fished the drop off 400 meters from the provincial boat launch today, it's a great spot for walleye in the summer. The ice was 16 inches thick. Nobody out there has even seen a fish for the about a week.
by Ogre8684 on Jan. 1, 2012
Was out 29,30,1 saw lots of walleye,perch, whites and a burbot but none were interested in what I has to offer. Very slow
by Canadian Badass on Dec. 22, 2011
I was out at pigeon on sunday the 18th out at Mulhurst bay, The ice was 8-10 inches thick, I caught a 13 lb pike and never seen anything else, Mulhurst bay in the summer is a great spot for big pike, And Ma Me O beach 20 metres from the pier is the best spot for Walleye
by Jord on Dec. 3, 2011
How thicks the ice out there?

by Fishaholic on Sep. 8, 2011
Was just wondering if pigeon lake is actually fishable yet, from all the algea floating around. I have fished pigeon many times, pike can get up to 3.5 ft that i have seen and many walleye.
by Wayner on Sep. 3, 2011
Fished out from Provincial Park with jigs and minnows. Caught about 10 eyes in 4 hours, not the best day but enough to keep me interested!
by Newfie on Sep. 3, 2011
Caught 1 pike and 4 rally's.I've had better days but at least I didn't get skunked. Fishing seems to be slow everywhere this year.
by fish whisperer on Sep. 1, 2011
by Scodo on Jul. 8, 2011
Four hours on SW side in 10-15' caught 25 walleye n 1 pike between the two of us
by JR on Jun. 26, 2011
Caught 35+ in about 4 hours between two of us north of prov. Park launch in about 6-8 feet of water.
by Ilike2fish on Jun. 20, 2011
Went out Fathers day and caught about 16 between three of us in 3 hrs. Fished out at the drop directly out from the provincial park. It's startin to pick up.
by Dice on Jun. 18, 2011
Two of us were out 4 hours on the lake trying all sorts of different areas and used just about everything in the takle box and caught nothing!!! Not even a bite :(
by Ilike2fish on Jun. 6, 2011
Fishing is slow, only 5 in 3 hours, fishing out from the provincial park.
by Spew master on Jun. 1, 2011
They destroyed this fishery back catering to walleye regs. Good pike left in lake but not much else. Great place to take kids. Easiest place to catch walleye.
by D on May. 17, 2011
No last year we fished it. I'm assuming this year will be much the same though.
by Cory on May. 15, 2011
Please say you weren't out there today! It is illegal to fish pigeon before may 20!
by Do on May. 15, 2011
Impossible to keep waleye off your hook with a jig and minnow. Lake is way over populated.
by tmak on Mar. 16, 2011

by DAFISH on Feb. 13, 2011
Fished for 3 hours, saw nothing, caught nothing.
