It's wonderful to finally be able to keep a walleye for a nice meal from time to time. Our new minister of Environment & Parks has been a breath of fresh air, but we need a slot size on Sylvan for walleye. The whitefish are being slaughtered by poachers and I feel sorry for our Fish and Game officers who are seriously understaffed. We need to respect our resources so our future generations can enjoy them.

Fished Saturday. Lake was packed. Sunbreaker cove was a zoo. Lots of small rafts and kayaks fishing white fish in front of Sunbreaker, they were obviously catching them because saw them loading the coolers. Went to sandy point the usual spot again lots of boats walleye were slow. Went to half moon even more boats, even slower. Went in front of sunny side and got a nice jack. Had little bit success north end everything small though. It was slow and couldn’t believe how many people fishing. Open up walleye and floodgates.

It's been 20 years since I have enjoyed a fresh caught walleye fry in beer batter! Delicious, finally a move has been made to do something about the walleye population in this lake. Anglers are allowed 1 fish ( no size limit) please toss back gently anything bigger then 1-2 pounds but the small guys are plentiful and easy to catch from just about everywhere. In a few years we can expect a more normal mix of walleye, perch, pike and whites with a good chance at some real big fish! Enjoy the fishing please clean up more things then you came with show respect for the many homeowners and visiters and Bon Appetit

I was at the lake on Sunday 22nd fishing was slow caught one Walleye and two whites. Almost unbelievable was that there was a Dodge Ram truck that had fallen through the ice. The cab was almost completely submersed. I do not know how this happened but was told that someone had drilled numerous 10" holes in a line and this truck had driven into this?????? I would submit a picture if I could.

I guess people haven't learned that size limits don't work need better management,

Hi There. I'm heading out with a few kids this Saturday. Does anyone have any recent ice reports? In the past I've gone onto the lake at RR23 and had decent luck there. I haven't been to Sylvan yet this year. Any suggestions? Thanks

I absolutely disagree about NO size limit. Even white fish . I want them to put some limit on size with walleye, jack and white. so that is not over fish

Star Star Star Star Star

by dothepuff on Feb. 23, 2020

18 inches plus of ice

by Catch-em on Feb. 22, 2020

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.

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
