Was at Calhoun Bay last week and almost had our boat stolen. The suspects were driving a Grey van (possibly a Toyota) with an Orange Zodiak on the roof, they flew through the campground then parked in front of where the boats were parked on shore. They untied the boat and pushed it away from shore possibly going to pick it up in the middle of the lake as apparently this is happening extremely often at Pigeon Lake right now. Be aware when camping anywhere in that area as there is losers around stealing stuff!

January 21, driving on lake is hard, lots of snow and flood water. If you are driving make sure you have a shovel, you will need it. 18”-22” of ice.

Just got back from Buck. About 16in of ice. A little flood water in places. Lots of vehicles on the ice. No fish in 4hrs though. Need to find a honey hole on that lake. Had good luck fishing in the summer.

If there was 11in on Dec.20 I would say there is probably 18in by now with this cold snap so you should be good to drive on there for sure.

Was out on the 26. Drove on at the provincial park, found ice to vary from 12-17 inches. Top 4-8 inches are white, the rest is solid.

Hello? Anyone know if trucks are driving on the lake?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Mach1 on Jan. 6, 2020

Was out yesterday. North end, west of Calhoun Bay. Ice is garbage. 3-4 inches of snow cover on 2 inches of white ice followed by 2-3 inches of water on 8-10 inches of hard black ice. Depending on where you walk, the 2 inches of white ice collapses under your foot.

Are people driving trucks on Buck Lake yet?

by TWestlin on Dec. 29, 2019

I would like to take my son out on a little camping / pike fishing lake. Is this a worthwhile lake ? Are there better options near by ?

by iFish Guest on Jun. 25, 2019

No not fished out, just poor management

by iFish Guest on Jun. 19, 2019

Has this lake been fished out?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Dslug on Mar. 15, 2019

I finally found out why nobody talks about fishing this lake it because nobody does...was out at buck the other day and could only drive out to where someone has a shack out 50 yds or so and that was it, no trails leading out to fishing hot spots or anywhere else
