i noticed they stocked it in sept instead of october, I am curious if that means not as many fish left for the ice season. with october stockings i notice icefishing is great dec-jan amd then slows down

Was there Dec.1, 2019. Ice was slushy and wet. Manage to catch one on a wire worm. I saw a couple of fish on my flasher. Not much activity. Starting to doubt that stocking was done.

True, but they are all 5.1 cm. That's barely two inches, won't be any size til the spring.

Was out last Sunday September 8th. Caught two about 12 inches on shrimp. There were a couple of other guys there who caught a 3 or 4 on shrimp as well. They are there but sometimes they just stop taking anything.

Was out with my daughter for a few hours today. We never caught any fish, and neither did the other 10 folks we saw. I think it needs another stocking, none since May/June according to the reports...

Got out for an hour Saturday with my daughter shore fishing and we caught a nice 13%u201D rainbow We caught the only one we saw in the hour. About 30 other people on the shore fishing. People next to our campsite caught one from their boat too.

Would anyone know if the water has turned dirty from run off yet? Or is it still relatively clear. Want to take a short drive to fish Saturday. Wondering if it's worth it or go elsewhere

Went out there 2 days ago. Caught 10 rainbows. Kept 5. I have fished from shore 3 times last year got nothing. This time from a boat and got my limit. Think this is a lake that you need a boat..

Went out to Chain on Thursday March 21st. It was a beautiful almost no wind day! Ice was still 24 inches thick but with the sunshine the shoreline area was starting to melt with the first few inches really mushy and wet. We started at 11:00 and the fishing was steady until we left at 16:00 but mostly Suckers on the line. We managed to hook 4 trout, two of which were an okay size; all released.

Hi Bert, Last Sunday I was at Chain Lakes fishing with a rod holder & tip-up by Black Fox Fishing. The wind gusts were exceeding 100 km. I landed many fish using the Trigger. I was totally impressed. You can buy them at the Canadian Tire store in Cochrane, AB Check it out: www.blackfoxfishing.com
