Couldn't get on the ice at the intake. Spud kept going thru as far out as I could reach. The other side of the bay is still good measured 19 inches. Looked around and found 223 feet of water- be safe!

Ice Report: 18 in
Right below the dam there was 18" of ice. We fished a few hundred feet from open water. The ice was shifting a lot though.

All good thank man ! No i dont have a sonar but thanks for the depth ! And let's hope the ice will still be safe by the dam !

by Jaylive on Feb. 15, 2017

There was a safe place at the dam. Hard to say with all the warm temps what has happened this week with the warmer temps I always bring a spud. Hope you have a sonar, butiv been out lots this year and hit the majority at 25' ish suspended over 60-90'. White 2.5" swimbait has been the ticket for us, spoons and rattletraps have also ice fish. If your scroll down in comments there's all the info you need. Good luck n enjoy!

Going to Abraham lake this weekend ! Any safe area to get on the ice near the dam !? Any tips/lure/depth for lakers?

Conservation we are lucky to have!?? This Province couldn't manage a single gold fish right, take 63cm pike which is all the breeder females but let's put back the small ones even if they are bleeding bad, now that's conservation at its finest!! Wow man they're doing a great job!!!

by Jaylive on Feb. 11, 2017

You have been assuming a lot of things yourself buddy. Honestly if outta three or four grown men one of them can't take the 5 mins it takes to skim over the regs, why would I stop fishing when I've spent the time and money to get there it's a 2 hour drive one way. To go over and notify some guys who know dam well that there's no bait allowed? If they don't know the regs then I hope the co's look in there bucket maybe they find a extra couple fish over the limit they don't know about or a protected bull or undersize brown or rainbow. It all goes toward the conservation of the lake we all love to fish and we are lucky to have. If you wanna use bait drive 4-5 hours to find lakers cuz that's the reality.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Weeman on Feb. 11, 2017

People like me you don't even know me so quit assuming, I fish legally and do read the regulations, but I also walk up to people and just give them a heads up if I see something wrong not take the easy way out and just call the fish cops on them in hopes they receive a fine, that's just ignorant

Star Star Star Star Star

by Cougar71 on Feb. 10, 2017

Hey Jaylive I agree with you, people need to follow the rules as they receive regulation's when getting their license, all they need to do is read. As for Spewy and Weeman I assume your using bait as you both attest Jaylive's comment. It's people like you that give the Y2Y supporters more reason to shut down the Bighorn backcountry.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Weeman on Feb. 10, 2017

Ya no kidding, I'm sure both of you do illegal things everyday no one reports you for it, people should mind their own selves, you know maybe walk up to them and say hey did you realize there's no bait allowed maybe it's their first time, instead of calling the game wardens on them, that's pretty low in my opinion, this is probably coming from same people who don't like garbage around the lakes and shores but they're yard looks like a junk dealer, Maybe walk over and just give them a heads up I do that to lots of people and they really appreciate it, instead of having a fine for something they didn't know

Star Star Star Star Star

So is speeding. Better report those people too

by Dragless on Feb. 10, 2017

A rule is a rule a law is a law don't listen to this anarchists good on ya jaylive,report em every single time. If the Fnw have better things to do than enforce a law well that's another issue,

Star Star Star Star Star

by Weeman on Feb. 9, 2017

You know jaylive people like you waste the game wardens time I'm sure they have bigger and better things to do than worry about bait, since when is using bait poaching!? Like really get a grip

Star Star Star Star Star

by Jaylive on Feb. 9, 2017

If your a good fisherman you have nothing to worry about. Just have to catch em like the rest of us.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Spewy on Feb. 9, 2017

A good fisherman doesnt worry what other people have to do to catch fish. Its like telling the kids not to taddle on one another If the person beside me wantsto fish with an extra line or bait i dont phone the cops.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Jaylive on Feb. 9, 2017

If that upset you spewy I'm sorry. If you can't catch em legally drink your coffee and baileys on another lake...just pick up your cup when your done.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Spewy on Feb. 8, 2017

Should report them for having a coffee an baileys on a cold day too! Get a grip

Star Star Star Star Star

by Jaylive on Feb. 7, 2017

Did well at the dam on the weekend. Your right tho only small ones...might be worth noting for the second time in a row I've caught guys using bait. Minnows left on the ice after they left. So I've notified the CO's and they said they will be keeping closer attention out there. So all you poachers you have been warned

Any ice reports near dam?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Cal64 on Jan. 19, 2017

I went thru the ice with 1 leg about a week ago. Drilling 22 inches all day, then go thru a few feet away. I'm the guy in the life jacket from now on. From nordegg, go to cline river bridge, then about 400 yards further. Road goes down to the lake, it can be slippery. The big bay at the bottom of this road is probably the safest ice on the dam. Still have to watch! Take ice picks at the very minimum.

Star Star Star Star Star

by WildernessExplorer500 on Jan. 19, 2017

I drove up to where the cline river flows in and just west of where the river flows in, there was a stretch of nearshore ice that didn't look too bad. The ice out from shore appears more sound as well. I would still use extreme caution as I spotted some nearshore open water spots along the highway all the way to cline. It seems the ice is worse where the shore is steeper or there are large near shore rocks. Due to the lake level dropping too, there is an icy slope that surrounds the lake so a good pair of cleats and handheld ice spikes I find helps a lot. There are also stories of gas bubbles on that lake that make the ice very thin in places too and have heard about people's legs going through the ice. Abraham lake has a reputation for having some pretty sketchy ice and it is mentioned in previous posts on here and on the Alberta Outdoorsman Forum. I avoid going onto that lake without a flotation suite. From what I understand, much of that lake is treacherous.

I am planning to visit Abraham Lake this weekend and want to skate. Is it safe? Any particular spots to recommend as safe zones?

Star Star Star Star Star

by WildernessExplorer500 on Jan. 19, 2017

With all the warm weather and wind recently, the ice at Abraham has been getting sketchy around the dam and the shoreline. Was out on Monday morning and the ice near shore was solid with a bit of melt water on it, by the next morning there were 2 to 3ft wide strips of open water along the shore!! I would use extreme caution at this lake or go to a different lake in the area until the weather cools off again.

by Jaylive on Jan. 15, 2017

Had a good day for the first time out there. 3 lakers, 3 bows 3hrs. I'll bring more ice screws next time couldn't even set up the tent. Thanks all for the tips and to the guy on the ice for trying to help out with the tent and pointing out the danger zone

by Darren 45 on Jan. 12, 2017

Ice Report: 15 in
By the dam, also, the area usually open at intake is covered. Could be very dangerous if you don't know area to avoid

Star Star Star Star Star

by Darren 45 on Jan. 7, 2017

By the dam, watch out for the thin ice near the open water. Small jigs or jigging spoons, about 15 to 18 feet below surface. No bait allowed. Good luck

by BeerBabesBurbot on Dec. 22, 2016

Anyone been up by the Cline and could share an ice report? Gave up my Abraham ice fishing virginity last March but I think I need to hit that area earlier before the lake drops to much.

by Klo on Dec. 22, 2016

Hi eksimo. I have not gone out there to check it out just yet. But as soon as I swing by I can let you know. I imagine that it probably hasnt frozen over just quite yet. I heard from a few friends that cold lake just froze over so there could be a chance. If not then maybe ill head to peppers lake for an ice fish.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Eskimo on Dec. 22, 2016

I have only ever walked on. And I have never fished right at the dam. Many people do tho. I just fish along highway 11. Is it froze right over now Klo?

by Klo on Dec. 20, 2016

Hello. Ever since i have moved out to the nordegg area I have always wanted to ice fish this lake. I have been trying to find out more about this lake because it intimidates the sh** out of me. What is so interesting to me is during the three years i have been asking about this lake from the people I have become friends with in the nordegg area, no one has a clue about this lake and its saftey during the ice fishing season. As a result I have never gone on. I was really hoping that maybe A seasoned vet could meet me out there one day over this christmas break Dec 26-dec 30. so that I could really get a good idea of the does and donts of this lake. Thank you.

by Boxbrown on Apr. 28, 2016

Just this past winter I seen three 20# lakers caught. I had 3 huge ones in one night. The last one was the biggest and the only one I actually saw. It was massive. Again it would have been a 20 pounder or so. There are huge lakers u just need to find them. Ice fishing is by far the best.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Darren 45 on Apr. 4, 2016

Hey Adam, I caught a pretty good one (18 lb) there two years ago, ice fishing by the dam. I've caught loads of small fish there, but only once anything bigger than a couple of pounds. I'm sure there are big ones around, but few and far between.

Star Star Star Star Star

by AdamM on Mar. 23, 2016

Just wondering if anyone can tell me if they've caught larger sized lakers on this lake? I've never fished it or fished for lakers but its definitely caught my interest the last couple of years. TIA

Star Star Star Star Star

Went on the 19th, ice by the dam was 14", clear and solid. Open water at dam intake as usual. Fishing was slow, no luck. Went again today, ice was still solid, +12" or more. Much better luck, lakers and 1 rainbow, nothin huge easy enough to get a limit of "keepers"

Star Star Star Star Star

by 09cabelas on Feb. 18, 2016

@darren45. Did you make it out there? I was by the dam a couple weeks ago and ice was what I would consider sketchy. With this warm weather casting off the rocks might be an option?? Anyone have any other updates.

Best place to camp is below the dam, along the river. You are protected from the winds there. There are a few places to access the lake along the highway, just make sure to walk down roads 1st as they can be very icy. However you camp along the lake, plan for 60 mph winds, you might get lucky, but big wind is common

by Cal64 on Feb. 9, 2016

Strong winds changed everything more open water at intake. Lots of open water along highway. Front end of truck fell thru at cline. Don't assume anything is safe just because you were there before. Once you get on it there is still 18 inches of good ice. Be safe

Sketchy ice, caught one tiny laker, waste of time.. This warm weather hasn't helped for ice fishing this winter at all.

by Boxbrown on Jan. 30, 2016

Fish the lake yesterday. The dam looks very unsafe. The open water is much bigger then last week when I fished it. Open water all around the shore also. Very black patchy ice. I wound not go out and do not recommend going on there now. Went to the Cline instead. Almost 2 feet of good ice there. Caught 1 little laker and couple more bites. One big hit but never hooked him. Good luck and be safe

Star Star Star Star Star

by Laker Hunter on Jan. 27, 2016

I totally agree with Cal64 this is a very dangerous body of water. I've seen families bring their small children out right at the damsite running around only 30 - 50 yards from open water. I just shake my head in disgust I've seen old holes wash out and the ice can be very thin near old holes due to the current. Not to mention it's over 100 feet deep I have heard of people falling through the ice just standing near old holes. Be safe everyone.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Cal64 on Jan. 26, 2016

Don't want to talk you out of ice fishing, but this is one of the most dangerous bodies of water in Alberta, especially by the dam. If you are a beginner and have nobody to show you around, try goldeye or shunda lake. Both are listed on this app. Be safe and good luck

It's not that dangerous if u use common sense !! Just keep good eay depth sounder watch for lots of sand bars and rocks sticking up . Also watch the wind it come up fast !! And can get nasty fast . Generally around 10 am .. but on anther not fishing in 80 of water this time of year can be great ...

I tried ice fishing near the cline River two years ago with no luck.

I'm sure others have had better luck but I don't think I'll go back to that end of the lake until summer

I'm going to try some downrigging in this lake in August, maybe up near the dam as it was good last winter. I'm wondering if anybody can tell me the best place to put a small boat in ?

by Duriebd on Jul. 20, 2014

It would be nice if some people would mark where they're at least getting a few bites. I'm not saying giving away your honey hole. Just where I get a few fish

Are there any places where you can catch lakers from shore?

by Cbright86 on Jun. 23, 2014

Heading out this weekend, seeking lakers. I hoping to try a small downrigger to fish the depths. Anyone have any luck fishing deep in this lake. I have no idea how deep it is, no depth chart provided...?

by Darren 45 on Jun. 14, 2014

I've only ice fished this lake but would like to try it this summer. Where is the best place to put a boat in ? I assume it is usually a west wind here, how bad is it on the water ?

by Higgy on May. 15, 2014

Thanks alot for the info . I will update after my trip and let you know how I did ?

Buzz bombs and run real deep work well for the big lakers here. If you are in the shallows a red and white spoon.

by Darren 45 on Apr. 11, 2014

May last day fishing there was March 26th, I have never fished off the rocks there, only through the ice. We were north of the open water at the dam intake, about 50' or so from the edge. We had about 18" of ice then, I doubt there is any ice at all there now. Caught a 15 lb laker that day, best one ever for me.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Rod Hawg on Apr. 11, 2014

Have better luck catching browns on the other side in the river and they're a lot bigger!!! Any body ever put a boat in here? Is there a place a little more protected by the wind to put a 12' aluminum in?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Rod Hawg on Apr. 11, 2014

Was out there last sunday by the dam water is way down and the ice as far as I could see has water all along the shoreline could be run off or melts lot faster cause the heat of the rocks. Wouldn't walk out on that particular spot. I was casting off the rocks with little cleos blue/silver and green/silver only caught 2 though pretty slow.

Star Star Star Star Star

by iFish Guest on Apr. 10, 2014

Darren would you care to share the area you were catching off the rocks? Looking to catch my first lake trout then I'm done catching the sport fish of alberta!

Star Star Star Star Star

by Rapalaroland on Apr. 10, 2014

If anyone is heading out there before Saturday could you please let me know on the ice conditions or if you are fishing off the rocks?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Darren 45 on Apr. 8, 2014

Rod, I've had some lakers there that are a little more silver. They still have the 'worm like' markings on their back a bit and also the tail has much more of a v-notch than a bull trout.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Rod Hawg on Apr. 7, 2014

Are the lakers more silver in color here? Caught a couple casting off the rocks not sure if they're bulls or what. Greenish silver in color no black markings on dorsal or tail fin not like any bull or laker I've ever caught. More like a rainbow but they have black markings. Also for a lake with a bait ban sure is a lot of empty minnow containers on the rocks.

Star Star Star Star Star

by 09cabelas on Apr. 6, 2014

I Call BS. I was there exactly one month ago and the only fishing would have been casting off the rocks.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Rod Hawg on Apr. 4, 2014

I've only been here once. I just walked down by the dam and fished without a shelter for a couple hrs. Caught lots on blue fox jigging spoon and maribu jigs. Every time dropped the hook had a fish on. No big ones though.

by Darren 45 on Mar. 14, 2014

I had some nice days fishing there on my last days off, fishing by the dam. Lots of fish, but nothing over 3 lbs. Are there other spots on the lake for winter Lakers ? Maybe access to drive out on a quad ?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Shutdownbypass on Sep. 29, 2012

Ice fishing may be death sentence. Water level drops in winter for hydro power generation leaving ice surface suspended over empty space. Walk or drive on that and you could be seriously injured or killed

Star Star Star Star Star

Slow and murky one 1 in 8 hrs with both flys and spincast gear

Star Star Star Star Star

by Nick on Jul. 3, 2012

We went camping / fishing there the last 5 days . We had 3 boats on the lake not even a touch ... Water is really murky probably from heavy rainfall in this area.. Great camping time not so much for fishing !

Sturgeon river-north Saskatchewan river joints. Easy acces, clean shore line for casting. Bring food and water nearest place kinda too far..
