Rumour is they are opening walley here .1 no size limit . Nice they are opening it if it’s true but I don’t like the no size limit though sounds like they want to have them overfished again .hhmmm

North end around bay area. A few walleyes, very hard to see a white swim by. sometime have luck came as sudden and take the hook. Might get one or two.This year whites are slow. In the past few years Alberta fish and wildlife should limit the white fish size too with the limit you can keep.

North end from Rainy Creek Road onto lake east. Few whites and walleyes around but nothing aggressive. Far and few between.

Fished the north end of Sylvan on the 25th, only caught one small walleye but if anyone catches a large white with a red wire worm with a gold bead in its month its mine.

Fished north end of Sylvan lake today, on the ice by 9AM, Seen some whites but they were not interested. Caught one small walleye and seen more, Lots of flood water on ice and as little as 6.5 inches thick in one spot. 9 inches in most places, No trucks on ice.

Ice was about 8 inches at palm bay last Thursday. Walked out a couple 100ft and caught 3 Walleye in about 2 hours. Water was only a few feet deep. I was dragging a heavy homemade shack, I didn't get out too far.

Totally agree with the overly populated walleyes in Sylvan. A significant impact to other species. May be it's time to introduce walleye tags here. IMO.

Another year of fishing the summer at Sylvan. Too many small walleye dominate all areas of Marina bay and the light house area. People have to release them and many end up belly up along the shore line. Good for the birds but not good for much else. I began targeting pike this year and the lake still can produce some impressive sizes. A couple actually scared me a bit bringing them to the boat so next summer I plan on having a cradle to help me more then these monsters with their release. Not a lot of them around anymore so sorry you have to find the spots yourself. Ice fishing season is now upon us and Whitefish are waiting I have yet to spot perch and have not for years now. Good luck. Stay warm

Drilled a handful of holes out 400yds from shore and it showed 8%u201D of ice. Should be safe to walk out for opening day this upcoming week.

Does anyone know if the whitefish are still in the shallows in the morning right now

For Pozzo. Worthwhile for walleye fishing, but release only. Pike are around, but not thriving, so release only. Whitefish are around too and you can keep. You can fish off the pier and off the new dock area at the marina and guaranteed to catch walleye and the odd pike. Have fun!

I was there on Monday - RR23. Ruts and little slushy at the entrance to drive on but ice is still thick. Not far from bottoming out on my auger. Fishing was crazy slow.

More walleyes and less whites and perches this winter. This lake will soon become another Pigeon and Gull, which are dominated by walleyes.
