I was out this morning main town boat launch and drove on to lake no problem. The road closed signs are for the construction and a section next to pier closed but you can still drive on. The ice is at least 30" thick 300 yards out south. Game wardens were out today and checking, lake is only catch and release.

Why is the Town site entrance to lake closed? Is there a lot of water? I was planing on going Sunday. Can a person still walk on ?

by Bhlehr on Mar. 23, 2017

Entrance onto the ice at the Town site has a sign saying Road closed.

Wabamun is catch and release only. If I remember correctly the purpose for this lake is to turn it into a "Trophy" lake ? not too sure when that will happen......lol

by Wiggly on Mar. 18, 2017

Can you keep fish from this lake? Everything I've read says no, just though I'd check with the professionals.

Burbot are decently easy to catch in this lake and you can find some with good size to them , if you were to fish through the night you catch a ton of them. Anyone been over by fallis recently ? Ice still good to drive a 1500 on?

by Old Bullrider on Feb. 14, 2017

I'm told the fish were given a clean bill of health and are safe to eat. I believe our government is not doing the lake or the tax paying fishermen,or mother nature any favours by the restrictions of only catch and release allowed. There needs to be policing to stop overfishing but the policy as it stands at this lake will only diminish the quality of the fish and it will ultimately reduce the weaker species to a point of extinction with only dominant species left in the lake.

Hello, was out yesterday in about 12' deep, Seen a few walleyes (4) and several whites, pulled one 2 lb. eye out. Pike came in aggressive but only a short period of time. Early am was pretty active but as soon as 11am came it slowed down right down, good thing I got a Marcum to make the slow time go by faster.

by Marty on Feb. 4, 2017

Fishing frank knows what's up! Fishy fingers keep your poor attitude to yourself. This is an informational site. Anyways been fishing lake all summer. Caught lots of big walleye. Biggest was 7.2 lbs on scale and 12 lb pike on scale. Been looking for the trophies like everyone else. Any suggestions on why lake is murky near fallis and clear near town? Fish gotta be sitting somewhere. I'm just not finding them.

Star Star Star Star Star

by fishing frank on Feb. 3, 2017

Hello Fishy fingers, there's no such thing as dumb questions but rather in-experience people who have never ice fished before asking about things. To you and I who ice fish a lot it might sound kind of silly but I was once a very in-experience and must have ask lots of silly questions. I believe there is Trophies lurking in the shallows, I caught one last year.

Star Star Star Star Star

by FISHY-FINGER on Jan. 31, 2017

Fished fallis area Tuesday,Wednesday an Thursday. Tuesday and Thursday were good. Wednesday was slow. We found ourselves some pike and walleyes but no whites. Thursday I pulled out a 16lb 3' mud shark. Caught it on a white jig with a minnow. 20 FOW fishing withing 5' from bottom.

MitoMan I was there today and can confirm everything you mentioned. In fact I can repeat it all again. 3 of us had 3 bites on tip up and got off. Were you one of the guys with 2 gals and a fire pit? We were close to shallow area with red Eskimo 6 man tent. I might have came by and talked to you.

Star Star Star Star Star

by MitoMan on Jan. 22, 2017

Such a slow day on Fallis today. 3 picky bites on the tip ups and all spitted up the bait!! 4 guys full day and no fish!! Ice is so weak at the boat launch. I could see 2 tracks for cars stuck on the snow all the way to the water. Even walking was scary on this brittle snow. Ice was more than 2 ft thick on the fall off though, just can't understand how it can be so weak by the shore. I guess that's it for Fallis beach this winter.

Star Star Star Star Star

by FISHY-FINGER on Jan. 3, 2017

Troy78, the fumes from that colan stive have takin affect on your judgement. The spill has definately had a huge impact , anyone who has fished this lake has caught deformed or very skinny fish with a large head, many with open sores on their body. As mentioned , drop a camera down, I had been doing this for yrs and am not seeing anywhere near the numbers of large pike as before. We have haf multiple trips to Wab where we were running most of the day for our tip ups. I remember one particular time it waa -20 or colder and the bite was on, we pulled our lines out so we had a cjance to warm up, multiple double and triple headers between the 2 of us. We iced a ton of pike in the upper teens and some in the 20's. This hasnt happened in many yrs. I discovered a technique and a bait that works very well and especially good on Wab, it doesnt seem to matter now because the big pike numbers are a fraction of yester. Year.

Fishy fingers your Arms must be broke from patting yourself on the back. A few problems with your story. First the spill on the lake happened in 2005 and in 2009 you iced 3 pike over 25 in 20 mins. Seems the spill took four years to take effect. Plus you yarded in 3 giant pike in 20 mins. I once caught a Coleman lantern and it was still lit. Not saying that there hasn't been a decline in the # of large fish being caught but I doubt the spill and the walleye are the only reason for you not catching a dozen large pike per trip. You also forget that the wab plant was decommissioned in 2010 an the current coming from the plant was a huge spawning ground for the whitefish. I have fished this lake for over 30 years that's 1987 and it used to have a good population of whites, perch, pike, an walleye. Yes that's right walleye and during that time I also caught pike over 20 lbs plus walleye in the 8 pound range. Wabamun is a large lake capable of supporting all these species. And for the rest of you wanting to know fishy fingers secret remember. He who tells the best lie is the best fisherman.

by shiphappens on Dec. 31, 2016

You must fish alone a lot, not that your not a good time to fish with .

Star Star Star Star Star

by FISHY-FINGER on Dec. 31, 2016

Gudluk sounds like u had dumluk, i have iced many 20 lb pike from wab over 10yrs . Infact in 2009 i iced 3 over 25 lbs in 20 minutes. I have seen a steady decline in large pike since then . If you spent some time reading F&W/biologists early studies on fish populations in the first few yrs after the spill you would understand whats happening right now. First it was the white fish who suffered huge nimbers of casualties and not spawning , as a result the big pike numbers declined slowly. An introduction of millions of walleye put an even bigger impact on bait numbers . It wasnt until 3-4 yrs ago that it seems like there are many hammer handle size pike and the big (20 lb plus) are very few in number. Drop a camera and look for yourself. I use to catch several pike in the teens every trip and 1-2 in the twenties every other. I have ice fished this lake and many others , I have out fished all my friends and have won a few ice fishing tournaments so theres no fluke or "mis understanding" the fish problem here! I go to a lake in the northern Alberta and can ice 12-25lb fish at any time. I read maps and study the lake depths and currents, these are key to finding the big fish. Also you must know the type of fish in the lake and understand why "big" pike prefer certain bait fish and where and why the bait fish hang out. Do some reading and understand all the above mentioned then tell me I'm me I'm wrong!

Zero reports of huge pike over 20 lbs for those who believe the spill of toxic poison had zero effect on trophy fish, I have fished this lake since 2007 so save your BS for someone else. This lake is/was doomed to sustain trophy pike. With 30 yrs of ice foshing exp I can honestly say our governments " walleye" experience has failed, the proof is in Wabamin, LLB and Pigeon lake. Their attempt to fulfill anglers dream of an exc walleye fishery has failed miserably. There is a zero chance of any balance in an ecosystem where they over populate 1 predator or another. Walleye are a very aggressive predator that school in large numbers and decimate "bait" fish populations with a huge appetite. To ever think that Wab will ever attain a nature balance is crazy, what do you think would happen if they stocked any lake with pike to match the same numbers as walleye in Wab? Common sense has eluded our biologists.

All good guys! He's right, 33" all terrains and a leveling kit did nothing haha. When you pull on to falling the the first like entrance, not the boat launch

by Steve77 on Dec. 25, 2016

Fenwick - Fallis is usually a great place for kids. 10-15' of water. There is almost always someone out there for you to see where to fish. Off the point there is usually less action, but if you go where the majority of people go, you should see some Walleye without waiting all day. Nothing big, but generally consistent action. The odd Pike will come through as well. Good luck and happy fishing! I hope the kids enjoy!

by Steve77 on Dec. 25, 2016

I have drilled over 20 holes at South Seba and Fallis over the last week. Nothing under 18". Don't take my word for it though. Drill test holes until you are confident! Two things to point out though. There is a huge pressure ridge off the point at Fallis. You might not want to drive too close to that without drilling some holes first. I was probably 200-400 yards from it at the closest. Also, make sure you check where you are driving on at Fallis. The wind has drifted snow close to shore, and you need 4wd and really good tires. The snow is quite a bit deeper in some spots compared to others off shore. Grab a shovel and dig a bit to check the depth before driving on. If you don't believe me, ask Pikebuster17.

Hey Pikebuster17. I should have pulled you out but I saw there were two trucks behind you and I thought you had help. Sorry man! I was the grey Dodge diesel that drove on after. I saw you got a tractor to help you though. Not sure you would have gotten out any other way by how hard he was yanking on you anyway! Not without a LOT of digging.

19"s of ice will easily hold a diesel truck, i unknowingly drove on 10" before without takin a dive. Of course everyone should know to stay away from any currents or weeds or beaver houses etc. Stick to the paths and ask around. Most insurance compaies void your insurance once you enter the ice.

Hey all! The bad news was, it was a slow day today. The good news is that the ice at South Seba was 18" - 19" in the 5 holes I drilled. All holes were drilled 150-200 meters off shore. By the way. Please make sure your ice reports are accurate if you post them here for the safety of other anglers. If you aren't actually measuring and are only estimating, it would be good to say so. Cheers. (FYI, the 18"-19" was measured. ;)

Brad04 The pike are starving, I've caught dozens that are severly sick and skinny. Their head belonged to a 6-7lb fish bit they weighed 2-3. The spill killed numerous whites, perch and other "bait" fish . The introduction of thousands of competeing walleye collapsed any hope of huge pike making it. They def are reproducing but the numbers of big fish is waaaaay down. The fav food of big pike are whites because their high oil content and the numbers are deminished.

Pike Eat Walleye, Lots of lakes with lots of walleye ( which Wabamun is not one of those lakes by any measure) tend to have large pike too ( look as Sask where you can catch tons Walleye and big ones and still hook up 27-30 lb pike consistently. The pike are not starving there they have more food with walleye in lake ( pike will eat anything ). 2 Factors that are leading to smaller pike is warm summers we have had which kill off bigger fish especially pike in shallower lakes due to lack of o2 and pike need cool water. Also the train spill will pollute water and the chemicals will be present in bait fish ect. These build up in Predator fish like pike, the bigger the fish the more they eat and absorb the chemicals which build up in them and make them sick. I also would not eat anything from Wab for years. That is why there is a 0 limit on everything there, the fish still Carry Chemicals from spill and will for years and years. Walleye are native to the lake but have been fished out many times. This is another attempt to restore this lake to its old glory ( wab was Wallleye Fishery to that fed Edmonton up to the 30's when they first fished it out ).

Star Star Star Star Star

by FISHY-FINGER on Dec. 20, 2016

Many of the big pike are starved out, too many walleye. Small pike are also starving and ill. The same thing with LLB lake. Zero perch left and very few pike

by "FishOn" on Dec. 20, 2016

Yeah I hear the fish isn't good to eat from here, is that from the mill or I hear something about a spill from a train like 10 years ago??I don't care about eating them anyway, I'd just like monster pike to play out.

I've been fishing this lake the last two years since moving here from Ontario. When I target Pike I use all my old Muskie lures, 7in+ sized lures, when doing this all I catch is Pike. If you are tossing out "smaller" sized lures, you will run into Walleye. Yes the Walleye population is getting bigger at Wabs but that just shows how great of a fishery it is. There are many other variables when that come into play but if you want to target Pike, size up your lures and you'll keep those small eyes away! Tight lines

Star Star Star Star Star

by Clave on Jun. 29, 2016

Yes Walleye eat white fish but only in the smaller sizes. This is why there are no small whitefish in Pigeon just very big ones as they are beyond prey size now. You might want to call the area biologist or the Provincial Minister in charge of ESRD (or what ever they call it today) if you would like to have input. Unfortunately unless they open walleye take limits in Wab it's probably already too late as the experiment has begun with the expected consequences.

Ok. Second trip to Wab. Used my favourite Wab lure. (Used to catch 20 pike in 2 hrs) In 4 hours Caught 2 super small pike, one good sized pike and 3 tiny walleye. Very different lake now. Part of all our WIN card and fishing fees pays to pump walleye into Wab. Just asking why? I know pike eat whitefish. Do walleye? Wab rapidly becoming Pigeon lake with tons of Whitefish and Walleyewith a few scared pike. How can we have input into this fishery. Left to their devices the government will turn a great local pike lake into Pigeon: Overfilled with Walleye you can't keep and Whitefish you can't catch.

The walleye are definitely taking over and the pike are suffering because of it. Unfortunately pike don't eat any appreciable amounts of walleye so the 11.7 million walleye they stocked in will just decimate the other species. Just like they have done in all the other lakes this has been tried.

Cpt Jack. Just a quick note you may want to consider. Large pike eat all sized walleye. Med Pike eat small to med sized walleye. Also Walleye are native to Wab. They have been fished of lake multiple times. They are putting them back to restore balance. Essentially putting walleye in a lake with pike will only provide More food for med to large sized pike not less.

Interesting few hours. Caught several small walleye and a few skinny pike. The walleye are taking over. June at Wab used to be 100% medium and large Pike. If they keep pumping walleye in from Lac Ste Anne I'm afraid the days of guaranteed big pike might be over. Wonder what Natural Resources are thinking putting healthy fish from a clean lake into an oil polluted lake where you can't keep anything.

The pike fishing is definitely changed. The competition for food will have an impact. But, this lake was pike and walleye before being fished out and it will come back to balance in time.

Went out for the first time on Wab with friends, fished on the southwest part of the lake with a jig head, minnow and slip bobber. Caught one fish after the other from 9-11am. Yippee!! 60% were walleye (3 of which were approx 5 lbs) and the rest pike. What a great way to spend a beautiful morning!

Awesome day as well. Water was choppy but slayed 12 pike and a few eyes. Seen a pike floating with the gill plates torn out. Remember that pike will most likely spit a hook in 24hrs so don't be worried about cutting lines. A lost lure is better than a lost fish.

Newscientist...my bad, I apologize. I meant. "Continue south...." And yes the launch/dock I mean is in the town on the N side. Growing up I had a 3 man Sevylor with a 4 HP Evinrude. That boat was stable. But regardless of the boat, get off the lake before a storm hits. Wabamun can get some severe weather. But then so can every lake in AB!

by newscientist on May. 11, 2016

LRD, which boat launch you meant by "town side". I assumed it would be at the southern side of the lake as I will make my way north with the boat, but all the boat launches listed in this app are at the north and west beaches of the lake.

newscientist You would be fine with your 3 man. Launch at the town site. Go out 500 yards from the dock and get some nice walleye. Continue North to the weed beds for some pike. Or launch at Fallis and work the drop off just before the point.

by CaptainJackSparrow on Mar. 28, 2016

I don't think Eskimo98 is saying the lake is dead I more think he's concerned that it will be dead with the walleye being the top predator in the lake, but theres enough variety of fish that they should keep the balance. perch love fish eggs so with a large perch count they should keep the numbers in check, I personally would like them to open up Genesee Lake again, if I remember right the restocking of wabamun was from Genesee. Besides it's 10 minutes for me instead of 40 minutes to wabamun

Star Star Star Star Star

by CGDufresne on Mar. 28, 2016

Clearly eskimo98 hs no clue what he is talking about. Says Perch and Pike are dead then proceeds to give the lake 5 stars. Me and my Bro caught 42 Pike in 2 days. If the lake were dead to Pike I would give my left nut to fish a lake that wasn't dead to Pike lol Eskimo98. Give that head a shake Pal!!!

Star Star Star Star Star

by CaptainJackSparrow on Mar. 28, 2016

I don't understand your statement Eskimo98 . If your saying the perch are dead or gone from this lake your sadly mistaken. My son caught 9 and I caught 4 from the lake the other day.perch are very abundant in this lake, only the young are at risk larger perch have the natural characteristic traits which make them quite unappealing to other fish (ctenoid scales and there spiny ray) I would say walleye are the least of there worries as I do not believe there count is large enough to be a concern, and as fish eggs are on the perch menu the balance will probably be fine. I'm more concerned about some of us using the lake being the problem the sight I saw at Lakeview the other day was bs. Garbage everywhere on the ice, is it to hard to bring a garbage bag, there cheaper than some of the equipment you use in your tackle box, only takes bout another 2 minutes to clean up at the end of the day. Sad.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Brad0420 on Mar. 27, 2016

@Eskimo98 Walleye were native to this lake but were fished out multiple times ( I think the first time was 1930's ) multiple attempts have been made to bring walleye back to the lake but people fished them out everytime ( commercial fishing, netting ect ). Now with 0 limits and no more commercial fishing they are attempting to bring the lake back to its original state. Which is right. The lake will find its balance. Lakes have always had perch and walleye. Just because a lake was fished out of walleye and become a " awesome perch lake " because the perch took over lake with less predators, does not mean the walleye should not be brought back to lake they were fished out of !!!.

Star Star Star Star Star

I think some of the people might be confused about the fish they are pulling from the lake, some one showed me a pic of one they took from wabamun and said it was a walleye, when in fact it was a yellow perch, something wabamun has an abundance of. (catch one you'll catch several, as they are a schooling fish). I'll post a chart if anyone is unsure. I've caught everything in this lake but a walleye, almost had one out of the hole but he slipped the hook.

Sorry Micheal I haven't been on in a couple of days so I didn't catch your text. I did go to seba it's not bad there but the day didn't help, the water was very cloudy and it got worse as the day went on. Went from seeing 10 ft down to 4 ft, as we all know fishing gets worse in merky water. Only 7 on the day lost a lot of the hook, would have been a 15 day. Got a great story though, caught a 33 inch fat pike and then my son got one right after, we were both realign in at the same time and my son was struggling with his catch as I got the pike to the hole we realized the pike had taken both hooks and my son was fighting against me. So to get him out I had my son let some line out as the fish was bobbing in my hole, but the bugger cut my line so I quickly got the spreaders in his mouth and pulled him out. Had my son lay down beside him and took a pic, counted that catch for both of us as it was a team effort. I fished at the spot north of the red marker posts in the lake, didn't know where else to fish as I have never fished seba before, wasn't much further of a drive.

For lures I've never had a problem with using a combo of neon yellow, orange and white jigs. Use a black head with yellow eyes. Jigs can be single or double tail, try to find the ones with a little pearl metallic flake in them to catch the light. Use them with or without minnows or cut up smelt. Always been able to catch pike and burbot on them

Star Star Star Star Star

by CaptainJackSparrow on Mar. 14, 2016

DICE Derby, if you take a straight hook put it in a minnow, or smelt and drop in on the sand or weed bed a white will suck it of the floor just like spaghetti. They are a bottom feeder and will usually ignore anything above the lake floor, I've had them push lure and line out of the way to get at bait on the floor. Well I think that we're going to go out to seba on Thursday my boy really wants a walleye before the end of season.

Well I read on here that liver works great and that there were a lot of catches with that bait. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and bought some pig liver. Fished all day with a pickerel rig on. Minnow on one and liver on the other. Not one bite on the liver at all. My lady and I had four hooks with liver. They always took the minnow every time. I even switched the liver to the bottom hook where they were biting on the minnow. Then they switched and took the top hook with the minnow. Goes to show that srories are plain bull****. So now I can officially say that the comments I read about liver are just crap. On the other hand, we caught 11 fish between the two of us. All pike. Biggest was about 6 lbs. no scale so I have to estimate. Ice lost about 2 inches melted yesterday. Turned out to be gorgeous despite the wind in the morning and early afternoon.

Star Star Star Star Star

by CaptainJackSparrow on Mar. 12, 2016

Ok Fishlips I did do research, it has very little to do with science and more to do with behavioral instinct of a fish. And anyone can learn basic bait and lure usage of fish with a little lougling (conterary to what companies say there is no super bait or lure) and really there is no technique to fishing. Maybe most of the flac your getting is with your "stuff it in your face" attitude towards other fishers and people posting try relaxing it's a friendly forum where people come to inquire and generally talk, if you have a problem with a poster, like most forums I'm sure they have a ticket submission section for forum abuse, or ultimately in the end does it really matter what others that you have never met think?

So to help Fishlips out a little with all the flac he is taking I did some research on the use of liver and it's history. Liver has been used for many years it's results vary from species to species. All forms of liver can be used but pork registers the best results. In fact they state that any meat from a pig will work good the more greasy the better as it is the oil that the fish are attracted to not the shape of the cut. There is a word of caution though check your local laws on the useage of bait for the lake you are fishing on, animal remains are not allowed on most lakes in Alberta and can result in a hefty fine if caught. As far as I know wabamun has no bait restrictions so fish on

The below post was the quickest depth chart I could find, unfortunately people want to get payed for these go figure. It looks like the deepest points are 10 - 12 metres and drop by 1-2 metres every ring you move inland with a few island high points. I've always found island points to be good fishing spots, hasse lake island was awesome for fish now it's a dead lake, another lake you can blame the province for killing once parkland county took over the reigns it died a slow poisonous algae death. It was the lake of my childhood R.I.P.

Most people won't give up there hot spots, get an app called micro qibla for your phone. It's a free GPS app that doesn't use data. When you find a spot you fish that's good to you write down the longitude and latitude so you can find it again. Most fishing is trial and error and fish do migrate around the lake but will instinctually return to good feeding spots, that's why you will see the same fish (scars, markings) from time to time. I keep seeing this monster with a white patch on him, wish he would take my hook, if I do ever catch him I will post. It's starting to become mine and my boys conquest

Heading out to seba or fallis tomorrow morning with a few buds, where have you guys been getting the most luck? I know the ice is still good at seba but haven't heard much about fallis. I haven't really tried fishing seba more than once , so if you don't mind throwing me a hotspot or two that would be much appreciated. I am looking to drive on again... hopefully. And FISHLIPS I wouldn't stress too much about all the comments, if its working for you then just keep going with it and let people hate. As far as I am concerned I just glad people are posting so I can try new things and you and Captain have helped me a lot. Thanks a bunch guys !

Don't be insulted lots of us have favorite spots we fish all the time, and I said I would try your theory and see if our fish count increases, I have read of it working on catfish. Im 40 yrs old and I have also Hurd many tall tale in my years of fishing, we caught 100 fish.......the fish I missed was 10 feet long, so on and so forth I question anomolies, not techniques as all sorts of things work. Don't be insulted people question lots of things, some things you will take more flack on than others, as I said your advise is welcome this is an open forum. How long were you fishing the other day?

Star Star Star Star Star

by CaptainJackSparrow on Mar. 11, 2016

Fish lips your advise is welcome like all others, pike are meat eaters, but they rely on smell in there olfactory sensors to pickup the bait and vibrations in the water, visual is usually the last sense used for a pike, but they say they can see color of some spectrum. But if you want to give your advise be truthful you say you caught 43 fish between 2 in how many hours? You must have got lucky and dropped into a fish pool. I'm no angler but my best day between me and my oldest boy has been 26 fish on this lake (various sizes) and that was a full day, this of course does not include all the disinterested fish that swam by. You must have struck on every fish in the pool you were in. I will try your liver theory next year and prove it's facts for myself, until then I say good job

Star Star Star Star Star

by Bearhunter52 on Mar. 11, 2016

I agree. Fishlips should be a professional guide with all the BS he posts. Where are the pics to back up what you say. I Was at Fallis last weekend along with another 40 fisherpersons and i guess yo are the only one who knows how to fish

by zasiejes on Mar. 11, 2016

Fishlips. Some of us enjoy your tips others are small minded. Liver has always been a good trick picked up from my great grandfather we used it to catch burbot in lac la none. Your hot dog tip worked great this year for the kids

Star Star Star Star Star

by FISHLIPS on Mar. 11, 2016

If you don't want my advice then don't try liver, this is the second time I gave a tip only to have been insulted. Pike and walleye are meat eating predators, I've already explained that I think the dark strips of liver look like leaches, Keep fishing tve way you are and pullong up minimal fish, I dont care.

Fallis is an excellent spot , atleast I found so for myself. You can go down range road 52 ( the exit to fallis and it will take you down a road that's and then it'll be a steep incline. Take your first right off that road and follow that until you hit a 4 way intersection ,take a left ( the right will be a dead end ) and then you'll go over the train tracks , hang a left at the fork and follow it around, there will be 2 main access point and both of them are easy to see. If you don't want your car on the lake at all then they'll be a small parking lot just before you see those access points, you'll have a few places you can unload and then go from there , you'll see people out there and then just jump in the line they are following on the lake, they usually are pretty close to the drop of spot

Star Star Star Star Star

by CaptainJackSparrow on Mar. 10, 2016

So if someone could please help me on other locations around wabamun say fallis, seba beach and lake view. Where I can park and pull a sled not to far I would be greatful. We usually end our season around this time as the geese return to the area and bed down, they make a heck of a racket and stur up the water which drives the fish away, that and the shore is already breaking 2 meters in. Map markers would be very helpful, thanks everyone, good season

Star Star Star Star Star

by CaptainJackSparrow on Mar. 10, 2016

Basically in 20 years I find it has less to do with bait and more on the lure you use and how you move it I've had fish disinterested in a lure and start to turn away, then you quick drop it in the sand bring it up to there height and bam they take it. I've had fish leaving while jigging so I move back and forth and they take it. I've had days when I forgot bait and they bit on a combo of yellow, orange and white jigs. I've even caught pike on spoons. Let's face it pike are gabate machines, but picky garbage machines. They like there food to move but not to hard to catch, colors, lengths, widths all very, but in the end all fish are different, but the same see food eat food. So if someone says they wrapped whatever on there lure I can't see it not working unless I tried. His catch count is what makes the story a little fishy but again I wasn't there.

Fished from 6:30am - 7:30pm! Fish were very active! The walleye come in hard around 5:30 pm. Non stop walleye action right till dark. Ice is still good to drive on at Seba. Measured it and it's 23" thick. You can park close to the boat launches. Very happy with the fishing today. I finally found a good drop off and found the perfect bait for that area.

Wish this site allowed multiple links in out comment, keep in mind this is for new ideal clear ice, the ice we are on now is already in deterioration. As a side project you should pick up or make some ice picks. To make use a 2 x 2 cut 4 inches long pre drill one end 2 inches down the size of a 3.5 inch deck screw head, then pre drill the other side to prevent splitting. Now screw the deck screw in, cover the handle in hockey tape or non slip grip tape and there you go ice picks, make 2 and carry them on you

Give me a minute and I will look for the ice chart and rules, you have to keep in mind ice thickness strength is minus the 3-4 inches of frost ice (the white ice on the top) solid clear ice is the only ice that can be counted for thickness, the ice is also weaker when it is full of bubbles. One sec I'll LOUGLE the ice rules

Thanks captain , I know as soon as your tires touch that ice there is no insurance,. Will be heading out tomorrow to fallis

Star Star Star Star Star

by CaptainJackSparrow on Mar. 4, 2016

The main issue with this time of year is that the ice is no longer freezing over night, even more now with these high temps. The holes you drilled the day before will still be open the next day. Right now with the ice being 17- 20 inch thick and cracking it's like a giant tight jigsaw puzzle but soon heat and oxygen will get into the cracks and and loosen the puzzle and it will start heaving, that and creating a wake from driving on to fast. A friend of mine drives the ice roads. Just be cautious, better to walk a little that the cost of getting pulled out, not sure if insurance covers a sunken vehicle

Star Star Star Star Star

by Lachmanator on Mar. 4, 2016

Thanks "jawjacker" o sorta figured that about driving on but there was just an uncomfortable amount of cracking for my liking, even when I was unscrewing one of my ice anchors from my tent that caused a massive Crack and cracked throughout all my holes; just was a little unsettling. I heard it's normal because ice contracts and expands and of course that makes sense but if the ice cracks every 10 seconds or so should I be worried ?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Jaw jacker on Mar. 4, 2016

Hey lachmanator. I am no ice expert, but my "safe to drive on" minimum thickness is 12-14 inches. After that I start parking on land and walk out with the sled.

Star Star Star Star Star

by CaptainJackSparrow on Mar. 3, 2016

I agree with jaw jacker if you bring it out take it back with you, the holes in the ice should be the only thing you leave behind. As for today was good, me and the boys caught 10 pike various size at our location, and one very hungry burbot 3ft. Took my son's hook (he almost got him out), then took mine and I got him out.

You should have to write an IQ test before you get your fishing license. It would prevent idiots from fishing. I picked up more garbage today than I throw out in a week. You idiots who litter, where do you think the garbage goes? Have some respect and pick up your garbage.

by Ride rank on Mar. 3, 2016

Went out the other day for pike, kept seeing them and some whites swim around but couldn't get them to bite so out of desperation my buddy put a piece of banana on to mix things up, it ended up falling off and a white took it immediately so we switched to small hooks and put some banana on it sunk it right to the bottom with a little slack in the line and it worked amazing for the whites I would have never guessed I'd catch a fish on banana. All the whites we caught were about 3 and a half pounds. 15' of water.

I have a doubt about the guys who are saying they talked to F&W are telling them Wab has a zero limit on the fish because they want to create a trophy lake for pike&walleye. If this was the case then why isn't perch, ling and whites open? Because the lake is still toxic i say! Theres no way that in just a few yrs its clean with that toxic crap dumped in there and the volume. Not to mention the toxic mercury pumping into the air right beside the lake . I have fished here for many yrs and the fish pop has declined 10 fold! There are big ones to be caught yet but less

Wasn't just you I h8 Weeds. I was out on Sunday at Fallis as well. Probably from 12-4ish. Used minnows and had probably 5-6 lines in the water at any given time with our group and 2 tip ups. Only got a couple of bites on the one tip up. Sat in the tent for probably 45min otherwise I was outside jigging. When I was in the tent I saw one small Jack and that was it. We were the farthest east of everyone though. Going to try more west tomorrow even though east seemed better for me last year. The guy beside us apparently got a couple big jacks from what he said.

The pike are they way they are because of the walleye. Given you can catch wimpy walleye in pretty much every lake in the area and province for that matter I wish they would have left Wab alone.__Who wants to catch wimpy walleye if you can' eat them anyway.

by Wally diver on Feb. 3, 2016

The pike are the way they are was because of the power plant and let me guess your still fishing the same spots when the plant was operating, now it's gone and so are the fish, they just follow the bait fish like a buck follows a doe so quit blameing every one else because u had a bad day of fishing ( it's still better than work)

In the summer time you can't keep either one off your hook, and the big jacks are in there they hide under you boat and latch on to you walleye as you bring them in, the lake is just fine, I think if your not catching pick up and move to a new spot the lake is big!!

Star Star Star Star Star

by FISHLIPS on Jan. 28, 2016

So basically everyone is saying thst because there was warm water running into wab the fish were bigger? Explain to me why pike are non existant in most of the USA where the water is warm all the time. Simple, big pike don't like warm water. All northern lakes have huge fish, first less anglers, second no over stocking lakes with walleye. F&W are trying to play god. 11.7 million walleye ? Really? Gee I don't know why wab is collapsing? Throw 11.7 million pike in there and see what happens to the rest of the fish. The only thing that has changed is the over stocking.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Clave on Jan. 28, 2016

WB Absolutely I will remember the warmer water theory if the walleye are ever extirpated from Wab and it remains closed. Unfortunately we will have to wait at least 20-30 years to find out the answer to that. Which is another reason I don't think the experiment should have been started in the first place.

Star Star Star Star Star

Oh I'm still catching big fish, I have a wicked spot and texhnique. If you read a few posts back I did a tour of the lake and fished by others to see what was being caught where. My general concensus is that there are alot less big fish. I managed a 16&18 last trip but overall this lake is doomed as a trophy lake. Last time I discussed my catch you all cried to the mod!

Star Star Star Star Star

by WhiskeyBreath on Jan. 27, 2016

When the walleye do not reproduce like they did in the 80/90's and fish size continues to decline, remember the warmer water. I have read reports where the zooplankton has steadily decreased since 2011,. It's not like the whitefish population which needs this as a food source has exploded. Colder water, less bugs, less whitefish, smaller predator fish. Pretty simple, we now have another Las Ste. Anne

Star Star Star Star Star

by Clave on Jan. 27, 2016

Lac St. Anne allways had walleye competing with the pike. So did Lake Isle, Lac la none, etc. Not to mention the others lakes are smaller than wab

Star Star Star Star Star

by WhiskeyBreath on Jan. 27, 2016

How do you explain fish size difference between the neighbouring lakes. There have been more big fish at wabamun for the last 30 years with the warmer water. The haven't stocked 11.7M walleye in Lac Ste. Anne and the fish size is no were near that of Wabamun.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Clave on Jan. 27, 2016

The power plant is a red herring. They did not stock Wab with 11.7 million walleye back in the 80's/90's. It was much fewer and they allowed harvest and retention of the walleye back then. Consequently they were soon gone and did not have nearly the effect the walleye are having now. If you look up the fall walleye index netting data you will see that in pretty much every case as they manage lake for walleye the pike, perch ,and in a number of cases, whitefish populations plummet.

Star Star Star Star Star

by ifish2016 on Jan. 27, 2016

Safe to drive truck out on lake today for fishing?

Star Star Star Star Star

by WhiskeyBreath on Jan. 27, 2016

I agree Bully. We should sign a petition to allow the powerplants to dump the hot water back into the lake. The big fish we are catching now are still from the Wabamun power plant era. At least with catch and release they are not being harvested, but in my opinion the size will continue to decline and it will become the same quality of fishery as the other lakes in the immediate area

Star Star Star Star Star

by Bully wahshanski on Jan. 27, 2016

Fishlips - I think we should ask them to fire up the power plant and use the lake as a cooling pond again. Monster pike and walleye came because of the warm water. They stocked this lake with walleye in the 80's and 90's and didn't affect the pike fishery. In the 90's we use to catch 20lb pike and 6lb walleye every trip to power plant outlet channel.

Star Star Star Star Star

Star Star Star Star Star

by FISHLIPS on Jan. 27, 2016

The fishing has been on a steady decline for the last 3 yrs atleast. Most people are reporting tiny fish that look to be starving. This is no longer a trophy lake! Most people that do report a bigger fish are not exceeding 15lbs and this weight was was use to be a norm to catch any where on the lake. Everyone needs to tell the fish cops the fish are skinny and starving. Sure glad they dumped over 11 million walleye in here! Might aswell throw some musky in here now to clean up the over population of walleye.

Whitefish are numerous and a lot of big ones...but also small ones which to me shows a healthy population. If anything is doing fine in that lake its the whitefish. No clue what the fish and game are talking about...they have kept it closed for all these years due to lawsuits against them if they opened it and someone got sick while eating one due to the train spill. That's all they care about. They don't care the pike are dying. Trophy fishery their trying for? Lol try opening up some walleye and pike then (under a certain size)...common sense tells you they won't get trophy size with that much competition for the food sources there. Fish and Game is just sad. And it's always different excuses their giving people, that's the funny part.

Spoke to the conservation officer of the area on the weekend. He said lake would not be opening to retention anytime soon . Yes a trophy lake is what they are working towards. The Whites are the ones who are having a hard time according to them. I fished the lake for last month or so Have not seen any sick fish.last two outings was just a perch away from a grand slam. We have caught some nice pike as well they are hitting big bait no problems. There is a report on the lake coming out in the spring.

Star Star Star Star Star

I moved to 8 locations , even amongst others to watch their catches. I think the over population of walleye has takin its toll. Drilled prob 40 holes in areas where everyone fishes. I didnt hit my hotspot but over all I think there is a big problem in wab!

I think this lake is doomed!! I decided to hit multiple areas to see if there was any better than the next. The answer is no, the fish are tiny and starving.

March is usually safe aslong as the first 2 weeks arent plus 10 or something crazy! It takes til may long usually for alot of lakes to open up. Stay away from any creeks or moving water. These areas can be the best place to fish prespawn but dont drive near them!!

Let's try that post again. Hey Hardwater Fans, There has been lots of chatter on here about fav spots, honey holes etc. One post said to use a topographic map to look for structure. It's a bathymetric map that you want. I use anglersatlas.com for my bathymetrics. These maps can be a great start to find structure, especially drop offs that just may be your next "honey hole". :-))) Hope this helps! Tight lines guys and gals.

So let me summarize this fishlips. Some random fisherman takes you to his honey hole for whites and helps you out greatly in your quest for fish and when someone asks you for a tip you reciprocate with a " figure it out like I did ". Hmmm. This forum is to help other fisherman not put them down. And remember he who tells the best lie is the best fisherman.

Hey FISHLIPS I do believe that you caught the fish you say you did. I got a 22 a couple years ago and we got several 14-16 this summer. I suspect your stories have some standard fisherman embellishment as most of my fish get bigger over time and grow a few pounds per glass of rye

by FISHLIPS on Dec. 27, 2015

Fishdoc, dont get mesmorized by the cam like most. I seen guys sit n stare at their camera all day and get nothin!! Use it as a tool to map structure and document behavior. Once i found my spot/tech. I watched n watched and documented times etc when the whites and pike showed up. Once you get a time frame focus on what they will attack.

by FISHLIPS on Dec. 27, 2015

Yes CaptainJack it is very helpful having a camera. U can look at structure and how they are reacting to your bait etc. When i found my spot i drew out a oattern of my holes with notes on structure and depths. Its not a fluke to find a sweet spot. After i compared my map/notes to a topo map to pinpoint a likely spot for fish to funnel to. Once i found the whites i began to study how they reacted to diff baits and techniques, time if yr etc. I have it down to an art and always pull over 20 fish each trip. My best day was 25ish fish but the smallest was 6lbs and biggest 25lb 4oz. 4 over 20lbs. I have yrs invested in my spot and watching the camera. Diff times of the day also have an effect on their willingness to bite. Cloudy or bright days too. If ya think u can just drop a smelt down n think walla they will bite you're fooling yourself. Good point on the water clarity, this is also a factor . Many people think that pike that aggressively bite over n over because they are starving are dead wrong. In actuality the aggressive fish are very well fed and instictively eat and eat to build mass and fat. A starving fish will lay low and reserve its energy, this is a trick that mature trophy pike learn . Pre and post spawn trophy pike will eat and eat and eat. Pre spawn more and this is what makes march so good for large hens.

by Fishdoc on Dec. 27, 2015

I've always wanted one, never seen one live before lol, just on videos and what not. One day soon I hope to have one

Get an underwater camera. Wab is fun because water is clear. You'll see perch, whitefish and the odd monster pike swim by. Last year one hog bit my camera! What a hoot. Nearly as much fun to watch as to catch. My nephews had a blast.

by Fishdoc on Dec. 27, 2015

Thanks fishlips, I completely understand not giving away tips and what not. Anything would help tho. This is my third year ice fishing so I don't have much experience. I usually go alone but can't get to many spots as I drive a car, too poor for a truck lol. And I'm not geared up like a lot of people. I don't have a fancy tent or gear, cameras or anything, I literally go out there with my 2 tip ups and hand auger and will sit all day hoping for the best, last year I got real lucky with a big one that I'm super proud of. I try and go out once a week. If you're willing to share I'm willing to learn, I'm not the kinda guy who is gonna bring the whole neighbour hood to a hot spot either lol.

by FISHLIPS on Dec. 27, 2015

How i mostly found my spot was when i was near the power plant and started bs with a guy, he was catching whites. He went on to say he knows a spot where he has caught 10lb whites. I said what!!! He said i will show u, we went there and sure as hll huge whites on the camera and big jack following groups of 6 or more. From there i drilled a ton of holes , after many visits i discovered a prime spot and soon after my technique. I have it gps marked/pin on my phone. I have seen as many as 50 whites pass by in 5-10 minutes. This is when i started using traditional smelt 6" off the bottom and my new technique in the other hole. Atleast 10-1 fish with the new technique. For some reason it works waaaay better in wab then other lakes.

by FISHLIPS on Dec. 27, 2015

Well if you would read his prior posts u would see that he revealed his spot , i can tell you I was no where near there

by Fishdoc on Dec. 27, 2015

Lol I'm just bugging ya, I wouldn't ever watch a fellow angler with binoculars, that's just weird. As far as technique goes, you don't need to be a wizard. Just set up tip ups and move around till you find a hot spot. You usually fish alone fishlips?

Off to my spot tomorrow for the 1st time this year will be my 2nd trip out this year. 2 weeks ago got plenty of fish but didnt have the quad out so couldnt get to the spot. Can wait for the big girls tomorrow!

by FISHLIPS on Dec. 25, 2015

Get your note pad out ralfmalf. Pike are territorial, especially when they are large. They will establish territory near food, imagine that they are near whites!! They will sit in deeper water and approach their feeding grounds from a spot where they can ambush their prey. Low light areas are there fav during the day. Whites like structure such as boulders. If your catching small fish all day then your not in the right spot. In the late summer trophy pike head for the deep as they don't like warm water. Often 30-40' of water in a zone called the thermalcline, this is a blanket of the coldest water in the lake and they lay in this zone. Trophy pike will not roam and roam in search of prey during this time, they will reserve their energy for an easy meal to pass by. They will venture into the shallows if need be. Any current from a creek or river is a prime spot as it acts like a conveyor belt of food coming right to them. Understand how pike detect food, first they pic up vibtrations from their lateral lines on the body, then scent and finally sight. As you can tell I havent studied pike much! Guess I'm dumb and ignorant because I didnt give all my tips away.

by FISHLIPS on Dec. 25, 2015

I also posted earlier... Find the whites.....is that not a tip? Anyone who has disected a large pike will tell you that whites are the fav food of large pike. They have softer scales/skin and are full of fatty oils . Guess thats not a tip?

by FISHLIPS on Dec. 25, 2015

Ok use herring or smelts on a hook. There i helped. You will catch fish but prob not big ones.

Here's a story about a guy who told everyone where he was catching 2lb perch. Within a week his single track on this local lake was a highway with 50+ vehicles and everyone took their 15 fish home daily. 10 yrs later and its dead still! I won't fish my spot ir there are others near when i arrive. I wont show them how i fish or tell them i am catching. I dont fish weekends and prefer poor weather conditions as many wont go out! 1000's of people read this site. There are 2-3 lakes within an hr of Edm where you can catch huge pike, I frequent another lake where I witnessed a 30+ lb pike come out. I have been here many times and have been the only angler all day. If I posted on here the name there would be 100 people there in 2 weeks. The perch are big too!! Alberta is waaaaay over fished and I plan on protecting my fishing spots and I release every fish I catch.

by FISHLIPS on Dec. 25, 2015

Well i'm not about to reveal my hot spot, i've kept it a secret for 5 yrs now. When someone comes up n asks how the fishing is I tell them not a nibble! After many trips , reading topo maps and trying diff baits, hooks and techniques I have dialed into what works best in Wab. This technique was by fluke and I have tried it on other lakes but for some reason it doesnt work aswell or at all! I have also built my own tip ups that can be used for my technique. I have watched the pike on camera for many hrs in Wab, they often ignore the baits or barely bite them. Many times they will take off when ya jig , The pike in Wab are definately less aggressive than in other lakes where I have watched pike, I think its partly because of all the fishing pressure on Wab, I believe the older and bigger fish have learned what not to bite! Call it crazy but I have spent many hrs watching on cam and comparing to other lakes. Just watch vids on youtube on Wab/pike, I have tried a simple jigging technique in 3 other lakes to compare, in the other lakes I have had violent strikes and in Wab the pike seem bored.

So the reason I got from a fish and wildlife officer and an alberta fish management employee and they are trying to turn wab into a trophy fishing lake that's why it is being stalked with waleye so much is because it is such a desirable sport fish. Wabamun chemical analysing has been completley clean for 3 years so it's not that the lake is dirty it is that the fisheries want to keep the water full of fish so my kids kids can have a place to fish

Star Star Star Star Star

by FISHLIPS on Dec. 8, 2015

Initially they said it would take 50 yrs to recover naturally (news). They also said that the fish couldnt reproduce, there are a ton of small fish now so i dont know if a bunch of small pike were netted with the walleye out of Lake Isle? A friends cousin was an environmentalist on site at the spill, CN was handed the max fine, because of the location of the spill equipment big enough to stand up the cars again wasnt possible, therefore the cars were opened up (without a containment) so smaller equipment could lift the cars. Do a little reading on the condition of Albertas fresh water rivers, the goldeye are the first to die and the numbers are extremely low near the mouth of the Athabasca entering Lake Atha This is do to multiple sources including the oilsands. Include run off from fields saturated with fertilizer, manure, pesticides, lumber/pulp mills and pipeline spills etc

Some interesting points FISHLIPS. But I would still like to see a scientific reading on the pollutant effects on the different species of fish in this lake. As I stated last year, the whitefish population should be sustainable. Why can't some of these along with perch be harvested and still keep the zero limit on pike and walleye if want them as trophy catchers only?

Star Star Star Star Star

Star Star Star Star Star

Would anyone really ever consider keeping a fish out of Wab? I could care less if this was 50 yrs after the spill, those power plants burning coal emit 1000's of tons of mercury during the burn. Who knows what other garbage is leaching into the water, how about the cabins all way around? Some with subpar septic systems and dumping fertilizer in their lawns? STILL WANNA KEEP ONE TO EAT?

I think I found my new favorite lake. Caught plenty of small walleye. My wife caught a 63cm walleye weighed 6lbs. Caught a 10lb pike. Had the pike of a life time got to see it jump out of the water. Then lost it at the boat when it tangled up in the motor. Such a rookie move.

Good morning fishing from shore on the end of the old inlet canal. 10 pike in 1 1/2 hrs. Nothing to brag about though. Used anything fire tiger coloured, spoons seemed best. Only thing though saw someone catch at least a 20 lb pike from a boat. He was so rough lifting it out of the water by its gill plate, it tore off. Hate when people don't respect the fish they catch. Be gentle people so someone else can enjoy catching such a big pike.

Nothing really big this time, they seemed to average 3-4 lbs for the puke and 1-2lbs for the walleye, still a ton of fun. Caught my first pike on the fly, tied the fly myself which made it even better. We were stopped by the CO which was awesome to see, super nice guy, we didn't get the hottie CO... bummer!

I don't typically get caught up in the type of uneducated drama that is happening below however a feel a few things need to be brought up regarding this lake. Tawill - The fishing regs are updated every season, there are multiple sources of information online stating that this lake is strictly catch and release! I have included a couple links for you to review, obviously you have issues finding this info... Surprising considering you have a "team of IT experts and lawyers" at hand... http://www.albertafishingguide.com/location/water/all/wabamun-lake http://www.albertaregulations.ca/pdfs/fishing-regs/Fish-Management-Zone2-Parkland-Prairie.pdf The contamination concern is NOT the only reason this lake is catch and release! Wabamun is being groomed to be a world class fishing and recreational area! I have fished a great deal of Alberta's lakes and can assure you that for pike and walleye fishing this lake stands out from the rest and needs to be protected for the resource it is. Your absurd and rediculuous comments, treats of legal action indicate the type of individual you are, as well as your intelligence level.... I believe everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy this amazing lake however in this one particular case I agree with the other posters comment, find another lake!

Next time try using what little intelligence you seem to have before you open your mouth on an open forum.. once again I simply asked a question cause I know that the reg's and other fishing guides tend to not update their issues all that often and I was simply trying to find out if this lake had been over looked!

Tawill 68__In your July 25 comment you say that you would like to keep some fish. Then you say that you know the regs state that the lake is catch and release. Now if that doesn't sound like a poacher I don't know. So on your next days off please go to a different lake. We won't miss you .Thank-you.

Star Star Star Star Star

by tawill69 on Jul. 26, 2015

WOW!!! Ask a simple question and you people get off like its a major crime!! Of course I know it's illegal to keep any if the reg's say so, Wow that oil spill was like 10 yrs ago and if the quality of the lake still has no limits on fish then forget even putting the boat in the water.. You guy's need a life, instead of belittling some one for asking a question you could have simply stated that no it's catch and release cause the quality is still not great! I'm the one that will throw a trophy walleye back in a lake that you can keep them just because I don't have a tag and despise people that do keep them! So next time please don't be so quick to judge and find out more facts on what people are asking before you fly off the deep end!!

i H8 Weeds, yes, red devils work great for Pike, so do the yellow/red diamonds. If you are trying for walley, give a jig a try. Cast and retrieve it slowly. Thanks for the tip on the location. 24-30 inches sounds great. And tawil69, keeping any fish from this lake is poaching and is a crime. Catch and release means you can't keep anything.

Sorry. I meant to say Mepps not Rapala in my last message Google map the lake and find point Alison. Then go straight south to the other side. There is a point. There will be a few nice weed beds over there. They are all good. Red Devils are best with a fast retrieve. The one weed bed with dead trees behind that has a huge nest at the top of it it my favourite. That's my go to spot for 24-30 inch Pike. With my boys and I (4 of us) every 5 minutes we are pulling in something. If you are only getting hammer handles go a bit deeper. Hope that is helpful.

I use good old red devil. I have the most success with that. Caught all my biggest on it. Large spinning rappala as well but just to change it up. Oh ya and some walleye soft bodies, the are fairly good. I just got some larger lures to try next time out. Going after some big beasts

Sorry, that didn't pay right. I H8 weeds, what are you using? I've had some luck with a simple yellow jig. This is a great Lake, I fish mostly in the east side 12 inch pike. Some walleye. But be nice to the fish, read how to properly handle them. I recommend single hooks to everyone I go with. This lake has enough action that you don't need a treble hook. Have fun

In Wabamun there is a nice launch. It costs $10. Way better than the "zoo" aka provincial park

by iYearn on Jul. 21, 2015

Looking to head to Wabamun later this week. Where is the best place to launch and park? Based on this thread, Seba is closed and the Prov Park can be "zoo". What about town? Any other launches?

Conservation officers, with all due respect. They have a base at Stony Plain and they are always on the move. I have seen is two CO boats on water at the opening of the season. They are at the lake a lot.

I h8 weeds - I catch lots of decent sized pike 5-10 lbs about 600 meters straight of from moonlight bay, past the bridge. If you have a fish finder look for the 10-14' of water and do a quicker troll from there back to the bridge. Red and white red devil and 6"-8" rappala's with a blue tone or perch colours have been working really well! Please punch your barbs or go single hook, lots of ripped out gill's, let's keep this fishery the amazing place that it is! Keep your lines tight! Cheers

I know that no one likes to give up there spots for catching nice sized fish. But since this is a catch and release lake would anyone care to share where some nice 10lb plus guys are.

Had a great time fishing Wabamun this past weekend. Fished Moonlight bay and the bay just on the other side of tressle bridge in Moonlight Bay. Constant fish all times of the day. I agree with pinching barbs to reduce stress on the fish. We caught 4 pike that were 5-8 lbs close to the tressle bridge. 100 fish through the course of the weekend.

by MuthaFunker on May. 29, 2015

Love fishing here, always catch a good number of pike and it's close to home (for me anyway). Unfortunately there are a lot people who can't handle fish and I often see dead ones floating around near the tracks by the Sundance plant. It's 100% catch and release in this lake and I'd highly recommend using single hooks here, even if you are a vet. You may loose a few more fish, but it's a lot easier on the fish and easier to release when those pesky jacks swallow your lure. Also, I see the odd poacher out there, I spoke to fish and game and the fine starts around $5000/fish and an automatic court date if your caught poaching from wabamun.

Star Star Star Star Star

by pikeguy420 on May. 26, 2015

IF YOU CANT PROPERLY HANDLE FISH, THERE ARE PLENTY OF YOUTUBE VIDEOS AND BOOKS TO SHOW YOU HOW. ITS A CATCH AND RELEASE LAKE SO LETS TAKE CARE OF THEM FISH. :):)

Star Star Star Star Star

by bulltroutman45 on May. 25, 2015

We caught fish good but it will not last for very long out of the 80 fish we caught throughout the day Saturday we counted 36 so almost half with the gills ripped apart on them pinch the barbs on your hooks so the hooks come out easier and be a little more gentle with em if you can't get the hook out easily put the fish back In the water and just let the fish wiggle it out it works almost every time we want this fishery to last please be conservative and respectfull of the fish and land

I think these reports are meant to share stories, advice, tips and above all create a sense of community around the sport of fishing, if one of our community members made a mistake and had the courage to admit to that mistake and takes step to remediate it he/she should be commended rather than chastised......I for one am glad that "Oldcanuk" had a great fishing day and I am pleased to see that something was learned about conservation and regulations so this sport can continue and improve..........

Seba beach had about 50 ft of open water along shore as of saturday, before the crazy wind came saturday and Sunday. Saw two kayakers paddling along and then they found an open seam and started paddling straight out. As I watched, the ice was flowing south, so the ice is already moving.

Bulltrout I would just recommend boots that are water proof. We had a few hrs off rain on mon so the water pooled in the lower dips. I personally won't take my 3/4 ton out anymore but as for walking??? I'd be on there today if I could. It's the entrance onto the lake that's starting to take a beating. I'm sure it's going to take a beating this week

by whereAretheFish on Mar. 10, 2015

Was out yesterday. Drove my dakota out. There was still a good 18 inches of ice. Water was bad at the entrance on to the ice, but other than that the water wasn't bad. Didn't get any fish. Still don't know where to fish on this lake

Lol, my full comment clearly did not post. Anyway,Bulltroutman I was wondering what part of the lake you are fishing? The lady and I drove up from Calgary on Friday to spend the weekend here because we heard the fishing was great and so far we caught two small pike between us in two days :(. Using a variety of jig heads tipped with minnows, smelts, etc.and fished around 12' of water at townsite yesterday and this afternoon and around 30' of water at Fallis this morning. We have to head back down to Calgary tomorrow afternoon so we only have one morning of fishing left,so far we are very let down and disappointed. Any advice would be much appreciated :).

Back in the day when the lake was used as a cooling pond for the power plants, There were some real monsters in the warm water. We use to nail huge walleye and pike in the hot water coming out the plant right by the townsite. The canal leaving the power plant was probably the best fishing in alberta years ago until transalta fenced the area off._8 to 10lbs walleye and upto 20lbs pike were the norm

as for the truck that went through .. it was off the point of sunshine bay (straight out from where they are building that new home).. over the last three weeks I have seen the ice thaw in that area and always avoid it when driving by (out about 150ft from shore ... the guy must have come from RR 55 and thought about joining others in the bay ... I would avoid that area for the rest of the year ... if you want to fish in the bay you have to access the lake from Seba ..

by Fishingjob on Feb. 15, 2015

I have been fishing this lake on average 1 times per week all year round. Winter fishing is the most productive time for bigger fish. C&r made this lake an amazing place to fish. There are days in summer where I can catch 20-30 in 90 min. In June after laying eggs females are super long and skinny. It's a cycle, hence why winter produces bigger catch! Good luck!

Star Star Star Star Star

by Fishingjob on Feb. 15, 2015

It was a great day. Full of tiny perch and very healthy females 21.5lbs 44" and 12lbs 37" with a few 9lbs. East side of the lake. I have been reading comments here and some people comment on skinny pike. Most of the bigger fish 10 lbs comes meaty and healthy with no body abnormalities like they used to. Pike feeds on tiny perch and there is huge abundance of it. Anyone catching big walleyes yet?

Star Star Star Star Star

by FISHLIPS on Feb. 15, 2015

The last 5 yrs i fished wab its been goin down hard!! Polution is to blame, over stalked walleye Bs regs. 2 power plants burning coal which emits mercury when burned,and like most prairie lakes pesticides and fertilizer. The fertilizer generates huge grow in weeds/algae that eats up oxygen in the water when it rots in winter...winter kill!! So now Wab has a zero limit, hook size reg and 2 tip ups only, if its a zero limit then we should be able to have 3-4 lines like before I asked f&g about sick lookin and small fish, suggested the walleye ate all the bait. Also said to him , i thought the fish were suppose to be sterile ? Early teports suggested this.

Fair enough. I just don't agree that the time to bring attention to a problem is after it's too late. Just look at the cod fishery out east. That's what they did and we still have a major problem over 2 decades latter.

Star Star Star Star Star

by pikeslayer512 on Feb. 15, 2015

You know what? Few years from now when you fish in this lake and you don't catch anything, then you start complaining. Right now I believe this lake is healthy, fished here winter and summer and so far very, very productive. With catch and release regulation, I don't think the fish are going anywhere. That's just my opinion.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Clave on Feb. 15, 2015

Again a couple of years ago a typical day was 17 to 20 pike caught in one afternoon. 14 of those would be greater than 10 lbs and a number would be in the 17-18 lb range. While the east end of the lake might being spared for now it is just a matter of time before the walleye get over there. They are already over in the sallow area by town. Please look at Pigeon as an example. Similar depth ranges as Wab and you now catch walleye everywhere including in 2 feet of water during day light. You find them in the weeds etc etc. What you no longer catch there is perch and large pike.

Apparently lots of you guys have no idea how to fish. My friends and I have been out at Wab and have done extremely well every time this winter. Lots of healthy, fat fish every time. And yes, an increasing number of walleye caught too.

Star Star Star Star Star

by bulltroutman45 on Feb. 15, 2015

Guys it really depend on where you go the fishery is becoming more and more stable to the east of the lake the walleye have a pretty hard time in this lake because it is not overly deep I believe the pike have taken a hit I parts where the walleye have been able to hold on but the pike are getting quite a bit bigger was out yesterday to the right of town and cot an 83 cm pike that weighed in at 10 pounds a very healthy fish

Star Star Star Star Star

by Clave on Feb. 14, 2015

If you look up the stocking reports, SRD has stocked 11 million 717 thousand 468 walleye into Wab in the last 5 years. To think this would have no effect on such a special fishery that Wab was would be a bit of denial.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Clave on Feb. 14, 2015

I can also confirm what fishbantit said. I have caught many fish this year that were long but abnormally skinny and it appears this is accelerating. This makes some sense given that walleye and pike compete for the same forage. Hence, less food for the pike.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Clave on Feb. 14, 2015

Hi bulltroutman45 What you described was just one afternoon a couple of years ago (before the walleye stocking) not 3/4 of a season. So yes I would say there has been a big change on Wab the last couple of years, that's all

Star Star Star Star Star

by bulltroutman45 on Feb. 13, 2015

Don't know what you guys are catching or smoking but I've been here once a week at least this hard water and have landed more than 10 big healthy pike over 10 pounds biggest being 18 just fish around you will see the numbers

The ice will be fine. All reports in the area are 20" or over so thickness should not be a problem. The Cabela's Ice fishing tourney around the town site on Saturday however might be. Have a great weekend

Alberta lakes might be hurting but funny that walleye are not. There numbers are going up dramatically. It's the pike and perch numbers that are dropping precipitously. Appears SRD only Manage walleye and trout in this province.

Dear fishbantit the answer to your question lies in the fact that SRD in there great wisdom have started to transform Wab into a walleye lake. They started stalking it with large numbers of walleye 5 years ago and now we are seeing the pike population taking the hit.

by FISHLIPS on Feb. 12, 2015

Hey Coolfat, who said anything about keeping fish? Duhhhhhh its been closed for yrs!! Yes the pike are sick/starving and very few big ones.The spill might be finally killing them. Haven't heard of any recent testing on the fish/water. Guess if "they" dont talk about it we might forget?

How far out do you have to go to get to 15 to 17 feet? I tried straight out past halfway and it was only 11feet deep. I probably needs to go further out..

Star Star Star Star Star

by Captain Jack on Feb. 10, 2015

Access the lake via the Wabamun town dock. Fish at 15 to 17 ft depth. For Big pike put a 6 inch herring on a tip up. It's also really fun to drop in s camera and see the fish (spooky Whitefish) swim up and stare down your wire worm. Almost as much fun as catching them. Any tips on actually catching whitefish?

Out at Fallis last weekend for 3 hours. 7 pike. Largest 12.5 lbs on tip up. 12 yr old son decided to put a herring on his rod. Nearly had to pull him out of the hole! Pulled an 8 lber out on 6 lb test and rod he was using for whitefish. Great day. Pike snubbed the smelts...loved the herring.

I was out with Friend and his kid on Sunday. Ice was measured at 18 inches and lots of trucks on ice. We had a 350 GMC diesel out there with no problems. Caught lots of pike between 2 and 15 pounds and one walleye on smaller minnow and jig. Pike liked the herring and between 15 and 26 feet. 20 feet did the best. At Fallis.

People seem to catch at all different depths at townsite. Just move around until you find a spot you like. People are driving on the ice now but depth of ice ranges from 10 to 12 inches that I have seen. I wouldn't venture to far out or off other people's tracks for a couple weeks yet.
