Hausers Cove... lots of ice. Had the camera down, very clear. No eyes, but lots of pike. Good healthy fish. Not bad for a season end, t shirt weather. Surprisingly, not too many others around.

I re read my comment and apologize but meant to say South side of the bay towards the mouth. Not always a factor but worth looking out for. If it's active it will cause overflow should see it

There is a campground at calhoun bay. I know the boat launch is pretty much closed down but you should still be able to drive on the lake there. Use caution as the odd year there is a spring or two that can come into play on the north side of the bay towards the mouth.

Not a bad weekend on Buck, but seemed a little slower.
Ran into two other ifish users on the lake, I guess my dog is a giveaway!
I think it was itroutfish, not sure though, but the second time you passed me off the hausers cove point, I landed a 50cm Eye.
Best fish for me this weekend.
Sunday I was anchored right off the point, a buddy of mine in another boat landed a huge pike. Got it in the boat, chained it up. When lowering it into water, giant whale broke his chain! Was a monster!
Weeds seems to be getting less, algae should start thinning out a bit. Sept long tends to be a great weekend if the suns out. But that won't be the last weekend! Lol
How'd you guys do? (The guys I met up with)
by Headstrong on Aug. 16, 2016
Might have been me..
Just me and my big Yellow Lab in the boat... A 16' Princecraft.
I drifted for quite a while until I found a somewhat sweet spot.
Been dropping bait a lot more these days. Haven't been trolling much. The walleyes are quite the delicate nibblers last couple of weekends. Not near as agressive as earlier summer.
I think this upcoming weekend will be a little more trolling as well as dabbling with smaller minnows etc. Also very little action on worms or leeches.
If you're out again, see a grey Princecraft with a heavily tattooed bald guy and usually a big dog in the boat, come by!
by iTroutfish on Aug. 15, 2016
Hey headstrong, were you guys trolling or drifting? I think we were right beside you in a green Lund and you seemed to be moving really slowly. Nice 59, we didn't get quite that big.
Pretty good day on the lake. Landed 18 pike and 6 walleye. (1 walleye @ 55cm).All on 1.5 ounce bottom bouncers with Lindy rigs and Candle lake shiners in about 20 ft of water on the northwest side of the lake.

I was catching keeper walleyes just south of the North boat launch . I was jigging with a gray jighead and small minnows. Great day.
by Headstrong on Aug. 2, 2016
Fish Fry; Algae isn't bad at the moment, normal particle levels for this time of year. Weeds do seem to be a lot thicker this year. We are not fishing areas that were hot last year.
I don't venture down to the boat launch area as I find it gets crazy busy there.
There are great fishing areas all over the lake though, but our place is on the north end so we stick to the top half of the lake.
As for what to use; it varies, do you want to cast? Do you want to bait? Or jig?
Casting using a crankbait or spinner will get you more pike, or seems to for us.
Jigging with a jig head and leach tends to hit the walleye well.
Bait and wait with leeches, worms or minnows.
Nice thing about Buck is that you can change things up and until you find what works.
My 7 yr old daughter caught her very first fish yesterday, I only helped a bit to bring it in... 47cm walleye. Very nice fish for a first fish!
We hit quite a few all weekend, lots of pike and walleye. Three keeper walleye that went back in the drink for next weekend!
by email@example.com on Jul. 29, 2016
We where just there didn't catch much we where just out from the boat lunch right by the camp site first time there didn't really no what to use for bait or where to go any tips
by Fish fry on Jul. 28, 2016
Any algae this year ?
by Headstrong on Jul. 25, 2016
Had a great weekend at Buck.
Hot and sunny, so picked my fishing times wisely.
I have a place at Hausers Cove, so it's nice to fish early, have a big breakfast, fish again, go for a beer and fish the evening.
Saturday saw 23 walleye, two of which were 50 cm. both went back in the lake to be caught another time. Two pike that day.
Sunday was more active with 28 walleye and 6 pike. Only one keeper walleye though.
But a couple others I know were fishing the more north end by the weir and they had a hell of a weekend as well. Lots in the 46-49 range, nice fish.

Last season we fished this lake almost every weekend upon freeze up. on a fluke after loosing a minnow off a jig a Wally came by and picked it off bottom. Since then we've done standard jig and jerk method to call them in then when they just stare at it, drop it just touching bottom. Not sure why but they take it most times. Hope this helps with the frustrating stare and swim story's.

Nakamun is still dead
by Ashman on Dec. 5, 2015
The perch are far and few between in this lake. If ur looking for perch I think nakamun should be good this year as it died out 4-5 years ago. It runs a pretty consistent cycle. I will be trying next weekend, I also heard medicine lake has perch again also.

by Whitefish18 on Dec. 2, 2015
Is this lake fully covered with ice? Or theirs still water in the middle?
by FishFinder69 on Dec. 2, 2015
Where does a guy find whitefish this time of year?
Fished northwest side of lake. Good 7 inches of clear ice, would be good with skates. Southwest side has snow and flood water. One bite all day on tipup. Very slow are there any fish left in this lake?
by Whitefish18 on Nov. 28, 2015
Anybody know where to catch perch in this lake? Would really like to catch some perch out here.

Planning to go there on Sat, Oct. 17 just wondering if I can launch my boat and where is the best place to do so?
by JimJim on Oct. 13, 2015
We caught 15 jacks and 1 walleye between me and my fishing buddy in a canoe, 3 keepers that is jackfish. One of them was 75 cm long.
We loved the lake because there was no other boats at all-no power boats cus it is very shallow in boat launching area.
However, had trouble catching walleyes. Does anyone know a good spot for walleyes?

As of July 7 th the boat launch at Calhoun bay was chained off because of low water . The boat launch beside the boat dealer in the town site is good to launch boats. I was there fishing the 5 th 6th and 7th . The fishing was great even for the kids we caught a lot of fish jigging with minnows .
by Jacquard24 on Jul. 6, 2015
Fished five days last week. 105 fish between 4 guys some really slow days and some really good days. On and off. No perch couple pike mostly walleye. We had our best luck jigging off the point. A pretty good lake. Not a lot of keepers.

Lots of snow throughout and flood water in places, tough traveling. Ice 15-16" but found places with only 7-8". Vehicles getting stuck in Calhoun Bay yesterday. Tough bite all day, covered most of the east side. Few small pike and some 14-16" walleye.
by Newfiejay on Jan. 19, 2015
Had a great day of fishing. Caught 6 jack and 6 eyes. And lost a monster that emptied my reel.... fishing in 9ft of water using jigg head with minnow.
Hey Cappy where did you find 25 inches of ice? I was there yesterday and every place i drilled a hole it was only 15-16 inches. And that was with 2 inches of snow packed crappy ice which only has half the strenght of clear ice. Still safe to drive on but i would not be driving fast or you might cause a blow out.
by Thunderstorm on Jan. 19, 2015
Not a bad day of fishing. Lots of action. Caught 13 pike only 4 over 63cm. Was wondering what the trick is to catching something other then pike???

Was there for New Years on the northwest side. Was 15-17 inches in the bay and once I was out and around the point it was around 12". Did find a patch that was only about 7". That got me nervous in my truck lol. Should be another few inches thicker by now with this weather.

Biggest jack I have ever seen and had no idea buck Lake had fish that big. Only one other small jack caught and a small walleye so fishing was slow other than the Gator. I wish I co

Just off lake. Fishing very slow. AB Environment & Sustainable Resource Development collecting fishing info at boat launch. Asked to see data, many people had been skunked. Surface temp 78.5, way too warm. Lots of algae on lake. Apparently fishing was much better last week. Anyway, good luck to those venturing out.

Fished all day caught 100 walleye till the 3 of us each had a keeper. The lake even gave us each a big jack to take home for supper now if I could figure out the perch in the lake I'd be a happy fisherman. Got some tips and locations from a local gonna give it a shot next time out hopefully sooner then later

by Wingnutt37 on Jun. 2, 2014
Caught 15 pike and 8 walleye all under the regulation sizing. All of the fish we caught this weekend were caught on a fly rod on home made fly so that made it even sweeter! Late evening seemed to be the best time of day to fish.

Walleye were in full spawning mode and chasing everything you tossed at them! I was even able to catch a couple on my fly rod using a Zonker Steamer! Now that was fun! Only caught one fish over 50cm out of the 50 we caught this weekend and she was filled with eggs so I put her back to maintain the lake for another few years!

Fished Buck on the 16th. Caught 3 walleye and a pike. One walleye@49cm but no keepers...
by Just jig it on Apr. 18, 2014
I agree with Ashman, the only reason Buck attracts so many fisherman is due to the fact that you can keep a walleye(if you can find a keeper) open up another lake or 2 around the area and that should take the strain off this lake.
by iFish Guest on Apr. 15, 2014
Does anyone know of any decent trout streams near buck?
by Riderfan on Apr. 14, 2014
The one thing ESRD is doing wrong is to close lakes for retention, all this does is put to much pressure on lakes around them. If a lake has a collapsed population then stocking is the way to bring it back, not closing the lakes
Yes stocking is the way to go !
by Rapalaroland on Apr. 12, 2014
Haha starving walleye in gull and pigeon I think not. Great walleye in both lakes
by Ashman on Apr. 12, 2014
To mr. Jr. Are u kidding me? I know that sounds like a good plan but that is not what this lake needs. What it needs is for pigeon, gull and any other lake that is polluted with starving walleye to be open for at least 2 keepers to spread out the fishing. This lake is doing great. As a 20 year local I think the worst thing to do is to increase the walleye. Not sure if u know this but more walleye = less perch. Perfect examples are pigeon and gull. Keep the city people spread out.
by M.Jr on Mar. 23, 2014
To be homest like ive fishesd this lake many times and i really think they should close this lake for fishing for the populations to grow or atleast have a catch and release only for a couple of years it would really help the perch and u would catch am average of a keeper walleye in this lake.
by Duriebd on Mar. 22, 2014

by doylejhansen on Mar. 4, 2014
you are reading the regulations correctly, one walleye per person (in possession) over the 50 cm., now if you keep reading, you must eat that fish until you can legally keep another one ... we fish buck, battle and pigeon all open water long, need tags for battle and for pigeon ... cheers doyle .... this info is right till 03/31/14, have not read next regulations yet /
by Madfisherman 88 on Mar. 4, 2014
I might b reading the alberta fishing guide wrong for this lake but it's says a limit of 1 walleye over 50 cm without a tag? Is this right cuz I was told we need a tag for walleye anywhere in alberta? Cuz on any other laKe says 0 limit for walleye and pigeon need a tag? Info anybody?

by iFish Guest on Jan. 17, 2014
Is lake still safe for sleds with this warm weather??
by subway333 on Jan. 11, 2014
Ice Report: 6 inNorth east by shore. Walking and sleds only.
Fished north east. Only one bite started at 6am.
Surface is very slushy. Ice for a few inches and then water then ice for 6 inches then water.
Overall good lake will come back again
by iFish Guest on Jan. 6, 2014
Me and the wife were snow shoeing on the south east side of lake. There is a Ford f150 near shore with one wheel sunk away. Do not go on this lake with a vehicle. Very unsafe.

Is the lake good to quad on? Me and my dad might go and hit a scerte spot of ours for some jumbos

by iFish Guest on Dec. 23, 2013
Went fishing on Dec 20, on east side as well as south side, spent all day, and not a single bite. Ice is good for walking on or on sleds, probably couple inches, then slush and then 8-10" of ice. No problem walking on it.
by Metrontech on Dec. 23, 2013
Slow in the winter...we have a cabin here for the last 7 years. Never seen a perch on camera or caught one.
Hoping to get some this week as we are there for christmas...
Any ideas would be great
by FishBrains on Dec. 22, 2013
Has anyone been out at the North end in truck yet? Coming out tomorrow morning to try for a perch or two! Any hints or tricks would be greatly appreciated.
by KingFisherLuey on Dec. 22, 2013
Walked out on the west side, only about 5" of ice... No bites at 15 ft, might be too deep.
by iFish Guest on Dec. 22, 2013
Looking at going fishing here next week and would like some advice on the perch fishing as I've never been to this lake before. Thanks a lot.

One was 12 and the other 13" measured with a tape measure. Good ice consistent through out . The wind has blown the snow off -3-4 " of snow at max. No overflow out there but there is near the edge

by Fishy Finder on Dec. 4, 2013
I was there today to check out the ice, Had about 3-4 inches flood water. I only had a shovel with me but I chipped away the top layer if ice and it was approx. 3 inches of honeycomb ice. I walked on and it seemed solid, there were sled tracks out onto ice so someone has been fishing. I'll be heading out there on Sunday to slay some perch!!
by iFish Guest on Dec. 3, 2013

3 walleye over 8 hrsView on Map
Went out last weekend for 8 hrs Sat and 3 hrs Sunday. Caught 3 Walleye along the north Shore (1 keeper). Fish finder saw a lot of fish but overall activity was rather slow. Used a fireball jig + slip bobber combo with minnows as bait. Friend used some random rattler jig with bait and had 3 catches get away close to the boat. (Was actually rather funny) Good luck kids!

by Big perch on Aug. 23, 2013
Any good for burbot?
by Berger_98 on Aug. 21, 2013
Big perch I used a small bobber and jig head and have about 3-6 feet if line between you bobber and hook for bait we used worms and the 4 of us caught a limit in 1 hour but then a jack fish came and took my buddies hook and all and we didn't get a single bite after that.
by iFish Guest on Aug. 21, 2013
Out on the 19. Very slow for walleye, a lot of algae in the lake now. Saw a local catch and keep what appeared to be an undersized walleye then quickly head to shore. I wonder how often that happens?
by Big perch on Aug. 20, 2013
How do u catch perch in this lake
What do you use?
by iFish Guest on Aug. 9, 2013
(on 4th again) sorry.. missed second part.. jigging minnows on bottom with bright red jigs
(on4th) I tried mid lake (N/S) on the West side, caught couple fish slow so moved across lake to East side 18-20 ft of water, none stop, most too small but a school of nice walleye found us.
by iFish Guest on Aug. 8, 2013
Just wondering where on buck you were fishing and what are you using to attract the wallys
by iFish Guest on Aug. 5, 2013
Aug 4th, action all day, almost 50:50 Walleye:pike most too small, but got to take home a couple walleye, great day on the lake
by Alumacomp on Aug. 2, 2013
OK, I'll be the 200th poster. Just got off the lake. Fished all over and had decent action, but nothing over 19". So where to go for the big walleye?
by iFish Guest on Jul. 30, 2013
Hello Ridnik, I fished Buck from Calhun Bay yesterday caught a 11/2 lb perch on a bottom bouncer with floating jig tipped with a leach north of the bay. Heading to lake Wed. How far NW for that perch hole. I'm in a red LUND 14ft with Canada flag umbrella if not to windy. Wally 1 here forgot password so I'm a guest for now.
by Ridnik on Jul. 30, 2013
Been fishing this lake for many years. I don't agree with the gill nets! All the anglers have size restrictions but gill nets kill all species and sizes.I have heard they are going to put an end to it and so they should.
For perch I fish the northwest section of the lake. A longer rod helps keep the bait out away from the boat. Much better luck that way.also I use beef heart for bait on a bobber.they seem to love it.
For walleye. The east side of the lake about midway up. There is almost always someone there.
Black jig with chartreuse power bait and a leach has never failed me.it goes from 2.5 feet to 25 feet and I just keep going from deep to shallow and circle back.
Hope this helps!

Janet, The walleye fishing is usually excellent early in the spring.
Corsair, The ice is totally off the lake. I was out there yesterday to take a look.
by Janet on May. 14, 2013
How's the walleye fishing generally this early in the year? Thanks

I have had no problems at the town boat launch. If you go before Sunday please tell me if all the ice is off.

Hi all - what is the best place to launch from in buck lake, I heard it was shallow
by Summit18 on Apr. 7, 2013
by Ironeric on Mar. 29, 2013
All of them - they can only go so close to shore ( not sure if because of the nets or why) the bays east of the north road off the lake we're closed
by Big perch on Mar. 27, 2013
What bay do they net in?
by Ironeric on Mar. 26, 2013
Yeah thanks Big perch. They're here just hard to find -all winter on the fish cam and I only briefly saw 2
The net boys are getting them but tough to catch on a line

Got two fat perch, and 3 pike in 6 feet of water, no walleye tho.
by Mike on Jan. 25, 2013
Better get a underwater camera. After you drill a hole put down the camera. If you don't see any fish, move to another area till you find fish.

Nice try Bucky!!!
by Wilde1 on Jan. 20, 2013

If I had a Gps I'd gladly share my exact spots, sorry but the best I could do was use this hot spot marker tool, but my markers from yesterday are deffinately good starting points. Anybody else see arguing on this forum?? I saw 1 guy complain his fishing spots were being given away, so a couple people tried to share their good spots, that is the point of the app right???
by doyle j hansen on Oct. 18, 2012
to everyone that marked the spots for the perch in buck lake, i am stricty catch and release any species, maybe to late to try your tips this year, but thank you for all of this helpfull information, do you think you could supply me with gps coordinates, just kidding!!! .. thanks again, everyone have a great weekend

caught more pike (20+) than walleye, that is a first here.... normally none stop walleye, no keepers...
by Curt j on Jul. 31, 2012
Tough to keep even adults interested, or coming back!!
by Derf on Jul. 31, 2012
Fished it on weekend. Small walleye maybe 2/hr. 3 small pike all weekend. Couldn't find perch. Tough to keep kids interested.
by WalleyeSlayer on Jul. 30, 2012
Anyone know the perch are hanging out in Buck Lake
by Curt j on Jul. 22, 2012
Worst fishing of the season. Definitely not worth the drive.
& walleye queen you obviously haven't fished Calling if you think the walleye are skinny and sickly.
by walleye queen on Jul. 21, 2012
You got that right fish fear me.Been out a few times weve released over 200 fish no keepers.Lake is loaded ,soon buck will have skinney sick looking walleye like pigeon,sylvan and calling.Good management boys.
by Fish Fear Me on Jul. 2, 2012
Fished for 4 days, caught 57 fish between the girl and me (54 walleye, 3 jack) it's pretty sad when you catch that many walleyes and cannot keep 1!! I'm all for protecting the fish, but being able to have one or two for dinner would be nice!!
by Fts003 on Jul. 2, 2012
Fished all day caught 20 walleye, no keepers. Not biting that good yet.

What were you using????
by TS on Jun. 2, 2012
Went out for 3hrs today. 2 eyes and 4 jack. None were of size but a great time anyways!
by Trimmer on May. 28, 2012
I would lIke to take the kids to this lake to catch a few eyes, just wandering what end of the lake wood be the best, camped at the north end campsite last September and had next to no
by Walleye Queen on May. 27, 2012
Good job walleye king we caught over 65 eyes between two boats.Didnt manage to get one keeper never mind limits.Better check your 50 cm messurements.
by Fish Fear Me! on May. 27, 2012
Hey Walleye king, where did you find the perch? I caught one 12 incher last year and would like to get back on them....
by Corsair on May. 27, 2012
Three jack nice size View on Map
by WALLEYE KING on May. 27, 2012
Awsome day lots of action well over 30 eyes really had to work for are keepers.. Found the secret of the perch and come out with are limits.. Was nice to see that there's still fish in there after being netted
by Hez on May. 26, 2012
Just a note to all a reminder that the limit is still 1 walleye but the length is now over 50 cm this site has not been updated yet
by Pdo on May. 22, 2012
Was there on may 21....Only 2 small jack
by Corsair on May. 19, 2012
Good sized jackView on Map
6 walleyeView on Map
Went out today and caught 4 jack and 9 walleye
by IronEric on May. 6, 2012
Don't mean to be discouraging. But when these issues come up in conversation or forum having at least some of the facts and realities helps everyone shed light on a unsustainable practice( netting ) that needs to be banned from inland Alberta lakes. Lets not forget we still live in one of the best places in the world to fish but we will have to fight to keep it that way
by Pikster on Apr. 26, 2012
Pretty discouraging news from all you folks. Kind of disturbing news to me and my young sons. I really hope things change with commercial fishing restrictions cause it may cause my kids to lose interest and what a shame that would be!
by Me on Mar. 17, 2012
I am not a commercial fisherman and never agreed with it either. But if u do your research the people that do it legally have restrictions on depth and where on the lake they can net. In the end very few walleye actually get caught. I went out the last two years cause I live on the lake and during the pull, out of 300 whitefish caught there was maybe 2 walleye in 10-15 different nets. I go to northern sask every year fishing and the owner of the lodge encourages commercial fishing because the whitefish eat walleye eggs. He also said other lakes in the area were ruined when they stopped netting because of the whites. I think controlled netting is good for the lake but they've got to do something with the poachers

Nice pike here, used jerkbaitsView on Map
by Gnfishin on Mar. 11, 2012
What the heck are these guys thinking, there is more than enough work in this province and they are destroying these lakes for what!!!!! A few extra dollars , this is part of the reason the fish limits have gone down lately, I have young boys and I want them and future generations to enjoys these wonderful lake, just venting a bit because the fishing was terrible again this weekend
by IronEric on Mar. 11, 2012
So the Comercial guys netted/ poached / and sold a bunch of whitefish in pigeon ... Same thing going on here at buck I'm sure. 3.5 yrs to prosecute! Wow we will be out of fish in our lakes at that rate and my kids won't now what it's like to have a good day of fishing. I recently listened to a very experienced elderly gentleman who has been on buck for 60 yrs - he offered a dated 10 yr journal of every fish he caught with length/ time of day and species to Fish and wildlife at the buck lake meeting and was declined !!! Told it wasn't scientific enough- unreal. He also imparted to me a day in the spring where he collected two 5 gallon buckets ( in one hour)of lead net weights with his waders that had snapped off the nets from January- this has to change guys - weigh in here and comment
by Rylant on Mar. 10, 2012
Went for the day had 1 bite. Tried all kinds of bait. No luck disappointing day
by Billy on Feb. 15, 2012
Anyone catching burbot out there?
by Jeremy on Feb. 13, 2012
Fishing sucked was on the lake all day and nothing.....something has to be done about this commercial fishing a smaller lake like buck should never be aloud to commercial fish....way to delicate of an eco system
by Toss back Jim on Feb. 13, 2012
Caught 3 good size jacks in 2days nothing elseView on Map
by Gards21 on Feb. 13, 2012
Where are the hot spots for Perch on this lake? Caught one while fishing for Walleye but thats it
by Iron Eric on Feb. 9, 2012
Fishing sucks as usual after they net the he'll out of the lake in the beginning of jan !! Did well before and crappy after ...you do the math...
Somehow fish and wildlife in their infinite wisdom this year is going to put tags for recreational walleye fisherman who can measure every fish we catch, but are continuing to allow gill netting every year on this lake.- who's getting paid off and how much power does the gill netting lobby group have with the government.... Signed disgruntled resident.
by Doomtrooper on Feb. 6, 2012
Any good walleye action this year?
by Juh on Jan. 22, 2012
Ice was about 24" thick. Fished numerous spots in various depths, caught a few small pike. Didnt see any action on the camera! Pretty slow..

Any Ice thickness updates??
by superbgt on Sep. 11, 2011
Caught 35 fish over 2.5 days between 2 of us. 2 legal jacks and about 6 or 7 keeper walleyes (quit measuring once we had our limit) Tried for Perch but could not get them. Help?
by Tammy on Sep. 9, 2011
@ drew we have caught Perch this year and we used Buck Lake Shiners or worms. I have been fishing Buck for the past 20 years and this year by far has been the best! Best time of the day is early morning till noon then it shuts right down. Then again in the evening is best.
by DrewCarreyAB on Sep. 7, 2011
Went to give the kids a chance at catching some Perch and hopefully limit out on Walleye, got skunked on both counts........Saw alot of boats huddled together but did not want to rush in and try our luck, so we hung out about 30-50 yards away. Would like to know what type of bait to use there as to help the 3YO catch Perch and have fun like I did at his age. Am hoping to get up there again this weekend to try it out again.
by TheKeeper on Sep. 4, 2011
Limited out between 4 & 5 of us.
