The best place to fish is another lake. Glenmore is a hard place to catch with or without a kayak. The reward can be amazing if your lucky enough to hook into a big one but I've found it has not been the same since the flood. Go to the bow river once it clears up if you want to actually catch fish. I haven't been there this year but I've put a lot of time in on a kayak there in the last few years and I've only caught a few micro pike. Before the floods I could catch a big one everytime out. Let us know if you catch anything and good luck.

Fished the south shore last night. It was more of a mud hole than a scenic city spot. The water was incredibly low. I saw one whitefish jump, that was about it. I probably wont come back until the water is higher.

Yup, opens May 1 and due to the renovation on the dam they've dropped the water level by almost 12 feet. You can actually see the depression in the ice where it has settled on the bottom and dropped down into the old river channel. Should be an interesting year on Glenmore.

I fish there every weekend whole summer, mostly hit and run, caught a large size pike around 23 inch... its a nice relaxing spot, fishing just the bonus...

Went out on my kayak for a few hours this evening and C&R'd 5 pike ranging from 13"-17". Had quite a few larger pike following the small ones I caught but the bigger ones weren't biting.

I was out for about 3hrs yesterday on my kayak. C&R'd and took pics of the 9 pike I landed ranging in size from 12"-23", lost 3 beside my kayak. I think I found the old river bed, was about 30ft wide and covered with long grass not the cabbage weeds you see closer to the shore.

Shame on your race discrimination! You are not a Canadian!

This reservoir would be a good place to fish if people weren't keeping every tiny yearling pike they catch. Not much chance for fish to get big. Why oh why would anyone in their right mind feel the need to keep an eight inch pike?

Great morning on Glenmore! Big pike and a monster brown trout! Bigger than the blade on my kayak paddle!

Went out for a 2 day trip with a buddy and fished for about 13 hours combined and only caught one 15" pike. Had a big trout on my line but it got away. Fought for about 5 minutes with it. 1 pike in 2 days isn't great. Had fun though. Nice looking lake. Good scenery in south Calgary.

I've caught too many pike to keep count down at the reservoir. South shoreline. Average size has been around 20" and landed two over 30" 8lbs. Its a little merky in most places right now but the far west corner has been great fun. I've tried many different methods and a 3 1/2" rubber brook trout has brought me the most hits. Good luck fellow anglers.

Twice I went here, yesterday and today. Only got 2 tiny pikes. Not as good as it used to. I saw the biggest brown I've ever seen pulled from these waters. It doesn't look like it'll happen again.

Oh I'm only new to Alberta. Did not know it was closed for ice fishing. Is there good brown trotting here when the ice breaks?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Nviro on Dec. 9, 2015

Since it's closed all winter until May 1 I would hope not.

by Jayjayjay on Dec. 8, 2015

Hey everybody how's it going. Did anybody go out ice fishing yet and have any luck?
