Used to be a great perch angling lake up to 2 lbs if you look at the derby trophy at the cow lake store.
Perch are weak. Pike fishing is ok at best. First few years got some nice gators but seems like entire lake is petering out.

Anyone catching perch recently?

camped out at cow for two days. great action. 25 fish at least. no i didn't keep a single one. most around 60 - 80 cm. they do have a no fishing from boat dock sign but they have also put in a new dock just for fishing beside the boat dock so can't blame them too much.

Seen lots of under size pile getting taken home this weekend make sure u check your regulations
by SpinnerMike on Jun. 7, 2015
Cow lake is a heavy action pike lake that can prove to be fruitful if you are able to quickly figure out what the northerns are biting on at the time. From May 15 till late June the fish bite over and over, then it slows down when the waters become too warm, till mid August. This is one of the last successful shore fishing lakes in the area, and even that much is dwindling, as the staff that run the campground on the lake have asked that people no longer fish off of their best dock, it is solely for the purpose of launching boats (brutal). In the fall the pike are fewer, but they are larger, which makes the trip just as exciting.

by Greg1985 on Aug. 1, 2014
Caught a small pike off the north dock, nice lake to go to if you want to catch some fish from shore and meet some good people. Looking forward to fishing there in the future.
by fishman67 on Jul. 23, 2014
So sad. Used to love catching perch in Cow Lake. Then fish and game decided to put pike in there. Why? They eat all the trout and perch and anything else that moves. Diseased pike with big sores that I caught last year. What`s with that? UGH!! Leave the pike in the big lakes. _

Who in their right mind would eat fish out of this slough? They drill all around the perimiter of this lake and the fish are covered in tumours. Let the fish go so others can enjoy them. This lake could be a trophy pike lake if greedy people kept their mitts of the fish.
by Davemega123 on May. 19, 2014
I like fishing here went fishing there lastnight never got a bite I was using a spoon
by Kaleh01 on May. 19, 2014

by mountainman11 on Jan. 5, 2014
No cow lake (near lac la biche) is 2 pike any size. This is cow lake near rockey
You must of read the one below cow lake.
No cow lake in ES2 is 1 pike of 100 cm still. You read it wrong. So that nice pike you put back was a good choice. I just checked the regulations.
by lalynn on Jan. 2, 2014
This page says size limit 100cm on pike. Regulations states you can keep 2 any size. Very sad. Just through a good one back because it was shy the 100cm
Ice Report: 10 inThis is the depth near shore. Be cautious of thin ice out further from shore.
by kingfisher01 on Dec. 31, 2013

by iFish Guest on Aug. 25, 2013
was on cow today for 4 hours and caught 12 pike between 1 and 6 lbs, great fishing but I keep hearing stories of big trout, hard to believe because the lake is only 9 feet deep, does anyone have any pics to prove it?
by Melvin56 on Aug. 17, 2013

Caught a wack of perch there on august to along north west shore but was fishing for trout the whole time. Didn't see a single trout. When the pike were introduced it really stressed the trout population.
by Mono40 on Aug. 27, 2011
Diseased fish. Turned me off from there forever!
by Fish on Jul. 8, 2011
Why does conservation introduce pike to a healthy trout lake to reduce perch population? They in turn reduce the trout poularion as pike will prey on fish as large as 1/3 of ita own size. Seems the opposite of a sensible conservation method. I can catch pike almost anywhere but trout and perch on the same water much more satisfying to angle.
by Riley on Jun. 19, 2011
I have been going to this lake for ten years plus and have been able to catch our limit in perch allmost exertions unti a few years ago they introduced pike and I haven't been able to catch a perch since but apparently that was the plan to reduce the perch population
