There isn't any public access. It's the only public lake that is basically private. There are multi million dollar houses and properties surrounding the whole resivoir. There is a boat launch in the community of emerald bay but it is locked and for residence only. I have spent some time driving around looking for access but I just keep running into private property. When I was a kid we used to park below the dam where the river is and walk up but that access has since been blocked. I did however find public access to the river above the resivoir. It is clearly marked. You could possibly carry a small boat in and access the resivoir that way. I worked in house for 3 weeks in the fall that was on the resivoir and I only saw 1 boat fishing. The point is that people are not wanted there! it's for the filthy rich and there making sure that it stays that way.

How do you access this reservoir? it's a shame that there is no real public access for it, and if there is, no one shares it on this forum. I drove there today but kept running into private properties. Can someone please put a marker for public access if? thank you in advance

I asked once and was also told where it doesn't look like it's flowing anymore is where the reservoir begins. Use common sense. If you wouldn't fish in a spot if the fish cop was watching then you shouldn't be doing it any time.

by Cph on Jan. 16, 2017

Can anyone tell me where the bow wives ends and bearspaw reservoir begins? I would really appreciate feedback. Fish cop says the river begins where it's obvious. Sounds like a trap

Went here on the weekend. Really hard spot to get to because the main road is blocked. Have to climb down a hill and cross a train track just to get to a decent spot near the dam. Fished for a few hours and didnt catch anything. A couple of bites. Not much action out there. Would rather fish in the Glenmore or Bowness park.

Went there today with the boat and landed 8 rainbows, 1 bull and missed a couple others. All small though. Didn't even know there were bulls here. Biggest bow was 14" and the bull was around 17". Lost my boat launch connection though. Long story lol

Is there a boat launch or some where to bring in my canoe

by mitchyd on Apr. 21, 2015

I brought my boat here on Sunday. Landed two small rainbows. Had a bunch of hits but couldn't hook them. My battery died in my boat so we had to paddle back from the dam lol. Wish we could've stayed longer cause we were getting a bit of action trolling spinners

Star Star Star Star Star

by fearnofish on Apr. 15, 2015

Ice is all gone. Fished from shore a few times this year. Only a couple small rainbows. I agree though, if I could get my 14' aluminum in there I think I could find the big ones

by mitchyd on Apr. 14, 2015

Anyone know if the ice is off of here yet?? ... I got 3 rainbows there one day all in my boat. Nothing big just a couple of pounds but I swear there's gotta be big ones in there. I've seen big lakers at Ghost Dam (on the river side). Never caught them. That's attached to Bearspaw and I bet they go in the reservoir during the spring as soon as the ice is off!

by airnold88 on Apr. 6, 2015

A buddy and I went there a few times back in September. Each time we went, we actually saw pikes right at the shoreline within arms reach! But they NEVER touched our baits (and we tried everything). There were also a lot of jumps in the water, but not a single bit. That place is cursed!!! But of course we'll go there again as soon as it gets warm enough...

by Miked on Mar. 18, 2015

What about coming off woodland Rd for hw 1a, and then passing the railroad tracks and going down the dirt road? You would be on the north side?

Took my son out there 930 this morning till 1230 and parked where Jakinator said. Walked across a field to the water. Private access on both sides so not a lot of room to move around but nice spot. Saw lots jump but no bites.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Flank on Aug. 30, 2014

Went today with a buddy and parked where Jakinator on May. 23, 201 suggested. The place is beautifull! We fished from the shore and though we saw very very many fish surface (some big ones as well), we didn't catch anything. We used a little spoon with an orange stripe, brown jig, some fly draggers, live bait and nothing. Creeping suspicion that fly rod with the right flys would have worked great. We got there around 8:30 and left around 11 ish.

There is a fellow with nothing better to do with his time walking his dog and patrolling for vehicles on the west entrance. He packs a camera and gets off on taking pics of your license plate for by-law. Parking on the road and trekking in is the only option here.

Star Star Star Star Star

by iFish Guest on Apr. 15, 2014

There are no motorized vehicles permitted at the west access. This includes where people think it is ok to park. By-law loves to give out expensive tickets there on weekends. Save your pennies or park on the road. It's not fair, but it's the law.

Access is west end technically the river, park there legal and walk down river to lake to avoid likes of Tron and others that would like to keep it their private lake. It is long walk or could canoe in summer but it can be done, we didn't get more than one bite but don't know the lake well. Beautiful day on the lake Feb 2nd, and no parking tickets! About 2' ice. Have fun people and remember you can fish and park here legal if you don't mind some effort! -boots

by iFish Guest on Nov. 25, 2013

Ice Report: 1 in
Very dangerous place to icefish. Water levels fluctuate several times a day creating hazardous and inconsistent ice conditions and there is a strong current from the river. Wear a pfd, it'll save your life when you fall through so long as the current doesn't suck you under. Not worth the risk IMO.

I am done with this place until there is safe legal foot access. Smelt on bottom off dam for an hour and then fished all along dam with whip tail and not a bite. You have to cross cp property or go up the river or dangerous sw side to get in, cp cops patrolling looking to fine for trespassing and parking is really far away. Not worth the risk. -boots

The Rez is open to the public although some,not all of the residence would like to see it private.WE access from bearspaw rd on the east side.A bit of a walk but worth it as the place is beautiful? A boat is no different than a car or truck.if it is being operated in a way that is dangerous to the general public there are serious consequencies.Please report. Good to hear there has been some success.Enjoy and know there are better people out there to help make your day.

How do you get into the bearspaw reservoir? It seems like it is locked with privately owned ground.

Fished here are couple weekends in a row and caught only a couple mountain whitefish. Not even a sucker. Saw a couple small trout jump. Won't be back. There's way better fishing at ghost res.

There is no longer any access to this lake unless u live there. Somebody at srd should intervene.

Spent 2 weekends fishing clear water and saw only a couple mountain whitefish. Got skunked. You need private access to fish here. Big waste of time ugh.

Fast running water means there are a few fish here. Large rock about 10' from shore is a good spot.

The only problem with this lake are the people that live there they are not very friendly to anyone outside their community
