Catch and release at the narrows, but once your out past the two white poles in the mouth than its fair game to keep pike and burbot all to the other end of the lake just the narrows is where you have to put them back

Star Star Star Star Star

by Albertafisherman on Mar. 25, 2017

I see some people saying they are keeping the pike but I just looked at the regs and it says this lake is catch and release only for both pike and burbot

Got out to Rochon sands twice in the last week, had great luck both times. Couldn't get our hooks down fast enough for the jack. Seen a few monsters stalking our holes but, there's a reason they're that big. 18" of good solid ice there.

Star Star Star Star Star

19" of ice at riders. Tip up fishing. Need skates. Pretty slick without any snow. Might be a mirage or an ice heave between here and scenic sands

Star Star Star Star Star

The pike are biting good. Having better luck in the murkier water from scenic to the west, using smelts, spoons, and lipless crankbaits. Iced 7 today and lost about as many, 2 keeper size. Ice varies from 14"-20", and is very solid.

What's the ice thickness like these days?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Emorrison014 on Jan. 27, 2016

I would say if you don't have a hut you should be 20 - 30 feet from the closest shack. I honestly don't really like people fishing any closer. You are compromising their fishing etc. Be courteous of the perment shacks etc. You have a whole lake to fish :)

Star Star Star Star Star

by Fishingmike on Jan. 26, 2016

Released 10 pike today.

Star Star Star Star Star

by BobtheBuilder on Jan. 26, 2016

Ask yourself if you were inside the hut, how close would you want someone fishing to you

Star Star Star Star Star

by Boudar on Jan. 26, 2016

Can anyone answers this question for me? I fish a lot and I go where the huts are ( I don't have a hut). What is the unwritten rule of how close to someone's hut I would be ok setting up?

Mud puppies would be harmless in that lake the pike would eat them up

Star Star Star Star Star

by Keela on Jan. 27, 2015

Mudpuppies spend their entire lives underwater and are distinguished as the only salamanders that make sound—a dog-like barking.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Keela on Jan. 27, 2015

No it is not a burbot. I seen a mudpuppy the other day from Buffalo Lake.

Star Star Star Star Star

by google on Jan. 26, 2015

if you're talking burbot, they're pretty big predators, but I don't think they can wipe out the mature pike. Mature burbot eat smaller fish, including young northerns.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Icefishnguy on Jan. 26, 2015

I just saw a picture of a big ol mud puppy caught in Buffalo last week. I've been told that they can decimate a lake - wipe out all the fish. Can anyone comment on that?

Fished from 10-2 on Sunday. Almost 30 fish between two of us. Most averaged around 4lbs, with 3 closer to 8. Nice and aggressive. Fished in about 4' of water. Minnow on a treble hook.

Anywhere near all the shacks. We separated ourselves from them and it seemed to work. I think we fished Northwest of the shacks...

Thanks MattyO for the info, what's a good location?

Star Star Star Star Star

by MattyO on Feb. 17, 2014

Yes you can drive on the lake and yes, large smelts on a triple hook worked well for us yesterday. We caught 15 pike and lost a lot throughout the day. Good luck.

I'm planing to go ice fishing next weekend with my sweet but need to know where's a good location, is the ice drive able, I'm guessing smelts are the bait of choice? If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated...Thanks. \\ Fish On //

We fish alot at Buffalo Lake we go out on the Lake at Scenic Sands and we catch primarily Pike and the odd Burbot we use spoons and jig them alot and we smelts for bait with tip ups. Somedays we catch some and some days we don't. Good luck.

Planning to bring out some beginner fisherman next week. What are you using for bait? There are just Pike and Burbot in Buffalo Lake, correct?

We were on the lake fishing yesterday and the ice was good. What part of the lake did you break thru? That is really too bad that happened to you.

Half way through the bay (heading onto the lake) on either side of the bay are two very clear white pillars, that's your mark for keeping fish.

Ive boated pretty much whole lake few sand hills over west side but are usually marked by some one. In the narrows there are some big rocks submerged so i dont go in there just a pain to fishers from shore anyway cuz so narrow hence the name. Found a few snags just north of boss hill area not sure what it was i was just crawling along. All in all lots lake no problems hope helps stay safe good boating to you!!!

I've heard many people speak of rock beds that are potential hazards on this lake. Anyone know where the trouble spots are?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Erin on Jun. 2, 2013

More to the point of if you are staying at the narrows can u prove you never caught them there.

Star Star Star Star Star

by iFish Guest on May. 27, 2013

Can anyone out there advise us on where you can keep the fish at the narrows. I know you cant keep the fish at the narrowrs but can you keep them in the bay as you leave the narrows. The regulations are not much help with this issue.

Went out to Rochon Sands last weekend. Caught a nice Pike on a tip-up. Fishing is really hot there as of late. Yet to see any burbot though. Ice is about 16 inches thick. Drive my full size truck out on it with ease
