Went out on June 3rd for the whole day. Too windy to put the boat out so fished from shore. Not even a bite all day.

Parked at Peninsula picnic area off the Smith Dorien trail and walked on, good ice but lots of flood water. Tough hiking and got very wet. Fishing was slow, but can't beat the scenery.

Does anyone know a good spot to drive onto Lower Kananaskis Lake for ice fishing, such as from a boat launch?

Lake is wide open. Boat launch is accessible and the fish are hungry!

Water is low and fishing is slow. Half of the lake still is still frozen. Maybe in a week or two it will be iced out and the water should be up.

Depth is about 40 feet here. I can't find any depth charts for this lake so I thought I would share.

I have a bigger boat and I got it in there no problem. The water is low but the launch was good enough. And yes you can use a motor

by B10_bingo on Jul. 16, 2015

Luis I put my kayak in 2 weeks ago right off the boat ramp

by Luis B on Jun. 26, 2015

I was wondering how is the water level? Can you drop a small boat in or the water is too far from the launching area ?

Was there Monday. No ice anywhere but water level was low. Can launch small boats and canoes. Lots of shallow areas so have to be careful with power boats but you can get around. Caught 1 nice size trout and enjoyed the scenery

by mitchyd on May. 5, 2015

My buddy called a tackle shop in Canmore and they said the ice is off but there's still ice around the boat launch so you can't really launch a boat yet. Another week or two it should be good!

How's the water level? Is there still a lot of ice? Can you get a canoe out in the water? Thanks, B.

by mitchyd on May. 1, 2015

once again I am very angry at posts that include violations of the regulations , 4 times last year I approached and attempted to educate people on the rules that they where not following , not even to mention the mishandling of "Bulls"the officers are working hard out there but they do not have enough manpower to protect and police .

100 yards straight out from the boat launch.
