Have a cabin here for 25 years. Perch and Walleye gone now. Overfished!! Only lake that produced and would see 100+ trucks keeping 6 inch perch. All done now. Another AB lake collapsed. No stocking since the 80's when the walleye caught on and were kept due to the tag system Way to go Ab government. Thanks for the great memories.

Went fishing on the east side where the marks are on the map. Used to be full of perch, but didn't catch one or even get a nibble today.

Didn't fish. Just punched a hole on the north west side and took a measurement so I can't say if anything is biting but it's 10" thick if good clear ice, no flood water and less than a foot of snow

Traditionally fish this lake every year for perch. Spent 2 weeks there at the end of July and couldn't keep the walleye off my hook. Caught at least 50. Also caught a couple of Jack but despite many hour of trying never caught a single perch. VERY CONCERED

Can anyone tell me why the water level on the north side of the lake keeps going down? It can rain out there for a wee straight! And have 3 feet of snow in the winter and the water level is still going down!!

The big perch aren't gone they will come back in cycles. Try moving to deeper water I still manage to catch a few big ones although they aren't the size they were about 3 years ago I have no doubt that they will bounce back.

So I went to my usual spot for perch drop the camera and all day tons of small spotted tail shiners were stealing my maggots! And seen very few perch! Is this a bad sign for a lake or what?

I'll be in a blue dodge. We're headed to the first point north of the boat launch on the west side. Haven't had much luck other than perch. Hopefully I can get my auger running.

We were out for about 5 hours and caught some fairly decent walleye and quite a few of them too. We were not set up for Pertch but looking in the clear water we had seen tons of 6 to 8 inch chasing our jigs to the boat. Always have a good time at the lake ,we are catch and release fisher family.

Not a bad couple hours, we fished for about 4 hours infront of the shallow bay on the northeast side, caught 6 walleye and two jacks. Nothing huge but always fun to catch

Good perch 3-9 inches, don't expect anything over 8-10 inches. Very light nibbles and slow fishing. Limit is 5 heard of poachers being caught by binocular. Check regs before you fish perch as there is a high fishing pressure.

Star Star Star Star Star

by D97 on Jul. 4, 2011

Not a bad couple of hours. I landed a pike ( about 20") and 3 walleye ( average size about 10") I released them all. I fished from shore at the provincial park. Walk out a bit and there is a drop off with weed bed. Good
