A couple of weeks ago, my kids and I caught 15 fish on bobbers and power bait. Been back 3 or 4 times since and had no luck with bobbers. I think the lake has been fished out pretty good. Last night I had some luck with spinner flies. 5-9pm

People have had lots of luck fly fishing with dry flies, using mini colored marshmallows, worms, corn. sometimes even spinners. I think because it has been cold and it did snow after they stocked it maybe we have to wait acouple weeks before going back. i went on the 24th and didnt see 1 fish jump.

I went the other weekend to and didnt see anything jumping at all and it was stocked with around 3600 fish in the middle of april. I think it was because it was kind of cold and it did rain alot so the water was pretty dirty

March 10 2015: Ice fishing at McLean Pond was not productive on the intake end. By the dam (outlet end) the water was clearer. Corn niblets and worms had no bites at all. A small silver Swedish Jig was the most productive although there were a few bites on a small brass jig.

Canoe might be good, pond is pretty small, I have not been back. Had no bite when we went. Nice spot, just been going west of Calgary instead of south lately. Have fun and good luck.

Has anyone been to McLean Pond lately? Does the pond still exist in some form or another? Would it be advantageous to fish from a canoe? Are the fish biting and what bait/lures are working? Any advice would be much appreciated.

I wrote that one about Dewitt's Pond. We only spoke to the conservation officers at McLean Pond. They did say it was stocked. We didn't get any bites. Nice day with some rain just as we left.

Fished McLean pond for 3 hours today and caught on small trout. There were about 15 others either fly fishing or bait fishing and only witnessed on other catching a very small fish. Water is still murky and fish are very small.

Probably 20" of ice. Water was pretty dirty, like clay colour. Never caught anything, doubtful that trout live in that water! Must take McLean Creek turnoff to get to McLean Pond.
