Saw 2 trout, caught nothing. Most people we talked to weren't catching anything either. One group got a couple small ones.

No motor boats allowed on Birch. The launch is gated off and it's a steep hike down to the lake.

Hi guys from Birch Lake last Monday. You are from Sylvan Lake. You had a white truck and fished by the island. You caught one nice rainbow, one little brookie and another little rainbow. We talked a few times. You had cameras, sonars and a blue tent. Also, you came in on the bad road. Anyway, I would like to make contact with you to go fish another lake this next week: WEDNESDAY? I will meet you in Sylvan, pay your gas and buy you A & W burgers. This lake is out by Nordegg. I know the spots to fish on it. Your brother caught a nice brown on Birch last summer. If you are interested please contact me at my on this website or phone Ron at 587-273-0234.You will enjoy this lake, but will need to have crampons.

Went out Grouse hunting around Birch Lake and the Fish and Game were setting up the orange thin ice snow fence and they said people are catching nice fish all types of Trout. Just thought I would do an update so people know what's up out there.

No longer able to drive down the hill to launch a boat. Hand launch only down a short, steep, muddy hill. Should keep some of the gas motors away.

Out there today Sept 4th. From 7 tell 1130am. Not a bite on spinners or spoons. And nothing on the bottom rig I tried for a little while. I'm an a mature fisherman so I might not have made the rig properly also. Two guys on a small boat with trolling motor seemed to have more success. I'll be back nice place.

Alright thank you very much for the info, what bait do you use if you don't mind sharing?

Fishing hit and miss, last time out landed a dozen rainbows and a few brookies. This lake looks more like the Walmart parking lot these days. Was out last week mid week and there was no lie over 30 trucks parked in the parking lot and probably a dozen on the lake which blows my mind considering it's a foot access lake only.

How's the fishing going? Anyone have any info? Been wanting to try this lake for a long time but it's a 3 hour drive for me any information would be greatly appreciated.
