Decent weekend in Sylvan, from the boat launch in Norglenwold we go maybe a couple clicks toward Half Moon Bay. Went out sat afternoon, ice was about 22', caught 2 whitefish and didn't see much else in about less than 10' of water. Went out a bit deeper sunday morning and got a bit more action. Tons of small perch hanging around, caught 2 more whitefish and saw a few decent pike but no biters. All in all a good weekend !

Thieves on the lake, some low life stole my Ameristep 4 man pop up tent off the ice at RR23 / Kuusamo Kreest over Christmas break. According to the RCMP there is lots reports of theft on the ice, make sure you pack it off or lock it up and watch out for each other. These SOB,s aren,t fisherman, they are just low life thieves.

@big dog. Jig head and minnow work the best. Look for the drop just to the east of rr23 and find 17 - 20 feet of water and you should catch eyes all day long non stop

Heading out tommorow to RR 23. Did some ice fishing there but nothing in the summer. Taking 2 kids and would be great if anyone has any tips on where,depth and bait to try to get some walleye to catch and release with the kids. I usually have used a highway tipped with a minnow.

Hey Everyone. Anyone looking for an Ice Hut for Rent? My boys and I have built an 8'x16' beauty. Fully finished exterior and interior. More like a small cabin than an Ice Hut. Kitchen, Bathroom, Wood Stove, Beds and More. Comes fully stocked with Rods, TipUps, Tackle, Bait, Camp Stove, BBQ and even a Poker Table. Book it for a day trip or for an overnighter. We've done several already. This is a hobby gig for my Little Guys and I this winter to get them in the fresh air and save for their trip to Disney. If you'd like more info and pictures please drop us a line. sylvanlakeicefishing@gmail.com

Hey Everyone. Anyone looking for an Ice Hut for Rent? My boys and I have built an 8'x16' beauty. Fully finished exterior and interior. More like a small cabin than an Ice Hut. Kitchen, Bathroom, Wood Stove, Beds and More. Comes fully stocked with Rods, TipUps, Tackle, Bait, Camp Stove, BBQ and even a Poker Table. Book it for a day trip or for an overnighter. We've done several already. This is a hobby gig for my Little Guys this winter to get them in the fresh air and save for their trip to Disney. If you'd like more info and pictures please drop us a line. sylvanlakeicefishing@gmail.com

Bring some small jigs or just bare hooks, but small. Worms, shrimp again something small and you should be able to catch perch all day. Great fun for kids.... Have seen perch everywhere this year, nothing big though. The deeper the water the better. 200m NNW of Norglenwold would be good. 6" off the bottom.

@Wu J, We were out on Sylvan lake on the 28th of Feb and March 1st, we all caught limit in 2 hours. They will not bite wireworm at this time, you need to use bottom bouncers. You can buy them in the shop in Sylvan Town. We use our camera to track exactly where the whites are going, so that's always useful. Do 2 bouncers on the bottom, then hold it about mid water column. That's how we've been catching them!

Slow day at RR 2-3. Saw a few whites, landed just one small one. Saw one small pike not interested at all. Saw a few walleye but very skittish and not aggressive at all. Very few people out so I assume it has not been very good there lately. Anyone else have better success today?

Never saw anything on two cameras four to five hours. Ya we moved around still nothing. Saw one truck down towards lake view drive he must have been 1500 yards out. Lots of activity.

Star Star Star Star Star

by yogibear on Feb. 16, 2015

Rapalaroland I stand corrected and optimistic that at least some people read the regulations that are a guide. I'm waiting on a response from the F/W about targeting Zero Detainment fish species as part of C/R for enjoyment in winter ice fishing because of the elements of exposure that exist causing stress and injury to the fish. I personally witness over the weekend at one of the lakes several people catching lots of fish and not knowing how to handle the fish properly to release it. That becomes a major concern. Open water fishing at least you can keep the fish in the water and manage it better for the survival of the fish. I have seen and heard of people bragging how many fish they caught over the weekend and had retained. more that their total allowed for their maximum limit including the fish they have at home. Wow I have that saying Limit your catch. Not Catch Your Limit. The good thing if they consume these fish daily they are up on the Omega 3. Another thing I observed is people culling their fish especially the perch. So if they do it with the perch I pretty sure they do it with other fish. The regulations are just guidelines to follow and there are other laws that F/W can impose on you that are not in the guidelines for fishing and hunting privileges in Alberta.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Rapalaroland on Feb. 16, 2015

Hey yogi bear maybe you should read the regulations a little closer there bud!! Just says limit is zero on burbot it's not closed to angling!! And as for the walleye fishing(which is spectacular) do not need a lotto liscense to catch these fish just catch and release only!! When a limit is zero U may still catch but not keep!! When a lake or portion of a lake is closed to angling then u cannot fish there.

Star Star Star Star Star

by yogibear on Feb. 16, 2015

Found several people asking where to catch certain fish that are not in season or a draw fish like walleye. If U don't hold a lottery licence its illegal to target that fish. Burbot is out of season in some lakes now because are spawning. Need to keep up with the regulations they change through out the season to manage the fish resources.

Lake is plenty safe to drive on, lots of ice. Snow is wet and deep in some spots. 4wd recommended. Noticeable change in the aggressiveness of the whites yesterday. Checked the bellies as they are eating lots of little shrimps, and small minnows. Cheers

The five of Diamonds may work, but you are better off with a wireworm and small test line. Maggots can be used. Seen lots of whites in deeper water, waiting for the burbot to spawn as the whites will be more aggressive. Then try the five of diamonds.

by WCJames on Feb. 8, 2015

Slew; Is the five of diamonds black and yellow or red and yellow? Do you jig this or let it sit? Where do you fish on Sylvan? Sorry about so many questions, I am new to ice fishing. Thanks

It's because we have a government that can't seem to manage anything. There are many lakes that are similar in Walleye population causing a huge imbalance in population. I'm starting to thing they are trying to create Walleye trophy lakes. I'm so frustrated and dont even know where to start.

For all you sure fisherman Make sure that you really look at the regulations book and see where the closure is on Sylvan Lake for the walleye spawning. There are also signs posted at the marinas It is pretty much from the furthest tip out and nor Glenwall village all the way across to the pier that jumps out by the volleyball courts.

Spent 8hr day at sun breaker cover with my 5 yr old sun, he was a trooper even though we got skunked. He saw huge pike in hole but wouldn't bite. We saw whites,pike and walleye on camera and threw everything we had at them and they would check it out but no dice. Every hole I drilled today was 30" and we drove our f150 on the ice. Good luck to everyone fishing this weekend, final countdown has begun.

Spent the day at sun breaker cove, started 200yds off shore in deep water where I saw couple white fish swimming just under the ice but not interested in anything I put in front of them. I then moved to about 100yds off shore directly off boat launch where I came across some walleye got one to hole but he got off, then I saw several nice pike in about 10 ft water but they were not interested either. Barely busted through ice with hand auger, handle was pretty close to ice when it finally went through.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Rapalaroland on Mar. 3, 2014

I disagree with the overfishing of these lakes lots of people come out here and don't catch a thing. Yes the lakes do get heart hit hard but they are definitely not overfished. Just because there is a bunch of traffic on the lake doesn't mean everybody's catching fish and a lot of those people are just out there hanging out snowmobiling,ATVing. having a fire and a hotdog roast on the lake ect..... The conservation officers are doing everything that they can to help control the population like at Gull ake dropping the whitefish limit from 5 to 3 is one way. I do however agree with closing down the big pike population which are your spawning fish and only keeping the smaller ones.

Star Star Star Star Star

Hey not to familiar with the lake where would be a good spot for perch I Have never caught one before and everyone says its fun looking to come up next monday the 10th

Star Star Star Star Star

by BoBo on Mar. 2, 2014

Hello Eco yup I agree I think both Sylvan and Gull lake are way over fished and the amount of fish caught is WAY down. I still see lots of people post there catching lots of fish at Sylvan and Gull which is great but I am a seasoned fishermen and I go with 3 other gents al the time to Sylvan and Gull and we catch very few fish. It's not that we don't know what we're doing it's just these two lakes are extremely over fished. I also think Fish and Wildlife have it completely backwards we should release any Pike over 63CM and keep the smaller ones as the bigger ones are the ones that reproduce so were keeping the wrong ones. Also I think they should go to a zero limit for a few years at these two lakes to help the numbers. I have talked to many of the older fishermen and they all agree the numbers are way down from years past. Case in point 20 years ago when one went to Brownlows there would 20 trucks on the ice on a Saturday now there is 200 plus. Great to see fishing has become so popular however fish populations has suffered because of it. Some fishermen do still report great luck at these two lakes which is awesome I just wish they would send some luck my way hehehehe.

Sunbreaker cove is a honey hole when it comes to burbot... My biggest one was at RR 23 but the other side of the lake you see one almost every day... I've always had good luck with minnows.

Loved watching on the big screen the fish swim up to their hooks and take the bait!!! They both managed to catch 4 fish each. He then shut the camera off and showed them that u don't need a camera to catch fish!!i thought this was really a neat way to show my boys that technology isn't always the best thing when u have knowledge. His knowledge of what's going on in the lake is exceptional!!! Great experience and would recommend his rentals to all.thank you again Roland and we will see you again soon.

Star Star Star Star Star

by iFish Guest on Jan. 25, 2014

Hello fellow fishermen and I could use your opinion on something. I have been fishing whites for 35 years and have caught my fair share of whites over the years but last winter I bought a fishing camera and after a few trips out I am convinced white fish are scared of the camera. I drill two holes 3 feet apart in my tent and I have no issues with the Pike or perch but the whites come within a couple of feet of my hook then turn away. I have tried a bunch of different hooks but it don't work. I see a ton of whites on the camera but nothing comes within 2 feet of my hook so it has to be the camera. Has anyone else had the same problem?

Star Star Star Star Star

No I have not caught any jumbo whites in Sylvan just regular white fish. A big one out of Sylvan is 2 1/2 pounds The ones out of Sylvan Lake taste a lot better than the ones out of Gull ake I find. The meet is a lot firmer not so mushy.

Funny how that works, I was there last night and only managed 3 Walleye. The Pike bite however was ON! 6 over keeper size and 4 hammer handles (all released). The biggest surprise was a nice fat Burbot on a smelt under a slip float in only 3 FOW! He was delicious BTW...lol. Sounds like a great day Roland, Congrats!

Thx Schnidy for the info. Interesting that u used big lures the size of a small walley. I suppose that eliminated walley & u target only pike & possibly large pike.

I got the pike by the last set of weeds just after the last marina. I was In fairly deep water but could still just see those weeds that stretch up from the bottom! Used big lures tho! The ones we used were almost the size of the little walleyed we were catching

by Schnidy on Aug. 25, 2013

It was a great day on the water today! Seemed like anywhere you put a jig and minnow down the walleye were hitting, the pike where a lot harder to track down but was able to land a 13lb an 11lb and a 6lb. They were the only three we caught all day.

Doyle don't broadcast the free boat launch haha. I've caught quite a few decent walleye on Sylvan this summer but they're not as big on average as they are at Pigeon. Not many small pike lurking which is good for the walleye numbers, but most of the pike that are in the lake are huge. Friend just got a 20+ pounder the other day (he swears it was over 25 lbs but he didn't have a scale with him to verify). Pic was really nice though! Watching the flyboard folks on this lake is pretty cool too.

Oakman, there are only a few lakes in AB where that can even happen and I actually beleive the person. Sylvan is not one of them. I've only been lucky enough to see one 30lber, but many almost 30. They don't come from Sylvan. Like to see some pictures with a landmark in the background. Maybe all the perch will come back and the alberta record walleye will magically appear from Sylvan too!

Here's a document on Ice weight capacities produced by the government of Manitoba. Take into consideration the Ice texture and thickness compare with the chart. Here the site http://www.gowalleye.com/ice_test_info.pdf. This document clearly describes what ice properties you need to consider before entering a unknown sheet of ice!! Remember ice conditions can change by the day week and definitely by the month! Climate, snow pack, water temp and currents as well as fresh and hot water springs all have an effect on ice thickness and must be considered when determining ice safety!! Current ice conditions are displaying a rating of well over 10,000lbs!! Play safe everyone!

For the whites I go 2 rr24 off rainy creek rd and fish off the first point on the left. There is a nice grassbed there only about 6 ft deep. Use a pale green or black wireworm. As 4 the perch I will keep that a secret. All I can say is go deep and a ice sonar is a great helper. Happy fishing and best of luck 2 ya!!!

Fished west of sun breaker cove today. 8' deep. Walleye's very selective stepped it down to whitefish rigs and found what they needed. All sizes with a few nice size eyes. Couldn't cash in on the monster pike on patrol.

Burnstick lake has a 1.5 ft of water on top of the ice, just about broke through on the quad. Stay away from the east side of the under water island in the center of the lake look on satellite images on google you will see the island. Strait out from the cabin boat launch to the south east. 60 plus ft. Of water here, play safe!!!

I fished the west side of the lake and had good success. Mostly in the morning and evening. Through the day is on an off. I mostly use mr twisters and jig and reel about 60-100 ft out from shore. Mostly small walleye but the odd good sized pike. Around 11 am I caught a 100 cm, 17-20 pound jack fish. Awesome fish but had a wound on the back that looked like a boat prop or something. I released it and hopefully someone else catches it healthy and enjoys the fight =P Happy fishing! Cheers

Fished right off the beach just east of the waterpark & hotel right in town. We fished off the west corner, for about 1/2hour until 9pm. each caught a walleye, about 5lbs each. Lots if nibbles though. Few other people on the shore & in boats, seemed to be doing well. My first fishing experience & can't complain.
