First time ice fishing for trout today and it was decent on this lake! The water was very murky. Tried with worms, shrimp, and orange power eggs. Seems that the fish were most interested in the latter. Was there all afternoon and caught a couple of smaller rainbows which were mostly released.

Was there this morning and it was non stop action all morning caught my limit plus my first tiger trout!! Dew worms on a simple hook with a couple split shot sinkers in 5 fow was what was getting it done!!

Garbage fishing today! A couple bites but nothing special.
by patd on Jan. 23, 2017
Good day on the hard water at Nugget! Landed 12 rainbows, and one 16" Tiger. Lost about 6 at the ice and missed just as many bites as we hooked. Fishing in about 6 feet of water using pink, or red and white wire worms tipped with shrimp

What depth are fish at? And what bait work out here? We are trying a foot off the bottom but no luck today. Seen people around us catching a few.

Was good but little ones 9-10" inches, one 11-12"
Caught my cut and was able to release a few in berween with quite a few misses also.

Was here two weeks ago. I caught 3 tiger trout and more than 20 rainbow between 10 and 14". Me and 3 buddies took our limit but combined caught over 40 fish! Ice was more than 16" that day. Small pink jigs and worms were the menu that day.

I noticed holes drilled 20 feet off shore right before the cold spell. should be safe by now
by southcookingguy on Dec. 10, 2016
Anyone tried to ice fish the lake yet?? Ice thickness?? Thx
by Donnie D on Aug. 28, 2016
granted taken a tiger tout is not cool..but it is not against the law if you do...i just like to catch and release ..but i have seen some folks taken a tiger every now and then.
by Brad0420 on Aug. 6, 2016
Actually not illegal to keep the tiger trout but your asked not to keep them as they were for research purposes to determine whether they continue with a tiger trout stocking program. I would assume since everyone fished them out instead of leaving them the program failed so no more tiger trout for alberta. Good job guys.
by Chichanator on Aug. 6, 2016
Just so EVERYBODY knows, you cannot keep tiger trout in this lake. You're a poacher if you do
by Pikster on Aug. 3, 2016
I was there in the spring, haven't returned since. Nice lake but useless if fished out. I recently went to another pond and couldn't keep them off the hook. Would love to share the site but we all know what would happen.
by Cujo3931 on Aug. 1, 2016
You could catch a fish almost every cast in the fall after it was stocked with tigers yet again a way to wreck a lake by taking more then you need hope the freezers are full guys
by Mikey69 on Aug. 1, 2016
was out today got one tiger may be 16 one bow about the same still fish here got to use proper presentasion and be willing to make a day of it
by Sat on Jul. 28, 2016
Very hard to find a fish ! Gave 5 hours and not a single bite!
by Pikster on Jun. 22, 2016
Good shore fishing pretty much anywhere.
by Fuzzygrubber on Jun. 15, 2016
Not to good tried everything no bites no fish
by Sumara on Jun. 11, 2016
Got skunked. Tried lots of different things and no luck. Talked to a few others who had the same luck. Seen tons of birds eating fish on the other side so that's probably why.
by danwood on Jun. 7, 2016
Can you fish from shore here and what do u use
by Donnie D on Jun. 5, 2016
got skunked ..no action what so ever..used several kinds of fly,s but no luck...
by Ko110 on Jun. 4, 2016
I went last weekend and I got 5 tiger trout about 15" big I was using orenge/gold spoon 1/4oz
changed to single hook
by Michael Gleaves on Jun. 4, 2016
2nd time fishing here at this lake. Fished for 6 hrs straight the first time and 10 hrs straight the second time. Used everything from gold, silver, black/fluorescent, and silver/blue spinners. Lady bug, and silver spoons. Then tried bottom fishing. Used worms, leaches, power marshmallow bait (all the colours) minnows, and power bait corn. Absolutely no luck! Tried a few different spots too. Seems like it's the same for everyone that we asked. They are not biting at all. We are all wondering if there is even any fish left in this lake. :(
by Hyperion on May. 24, 2016
Thinkin about heading out there soon. Anybody had any luck lately?
by Donnie D on May. 23, 2016
it clearly say,s in the regs that Tiger trout are reccomended that you release them back but rainbows you can keep (limit of 5 )..there is no confusion in the regs.
by SnapBack02 on May. 23, 2016
They also want to see how they survive over the years and how they adapt to see if they should stock other lakes with them. If ppl keep them all they can't do their research and cancel the program. Also if they stay in the lake they will get larger and more fun to fish for ;) wouldn't you want to pull out 20" tiger trout ????
by Drake870 on May. 23, 2016
The reason for releasing Tiger Trout is because of their rarity
by Alberta_flyfisher on May. 23, 2016
Not sure why the confusion with the regs. It says trout limit 5.... ??? Why are all of you confused? Isn't a Brook a trout? Isn't a brown a trout? So...why all of a sudden a tiger ( brook-brown cross) not a trout? If you see people keeping more than the daily limit, report the poacher.
by gazertin on May. 18, 2016
Algea blooms are bad lure get covered every cast left and washed my equipment don't want it to spead ppl. FYI
by fungirl on May. 3, 2016
so I agree with releasing the tiger trout but its ok to keep the rainbow and are there any of those that are decent size ?
by Drake870 on Apr. 29, 2016
Please release any tiger trout you catch
by CaptSumTingWong on Apr. 28, 2016
Tiger trout aren't considered a sportfish - yet. It mentions it in the regs Regs. also ask people to voluntarily release tiger trout. Unless you are from a communist country, then you keep everything you catch.
by Drake870 on Apr. 28, 2016
Was there today, and the wind was howling. Water was quite murky, but managed to catch a couple of tiger trout. My first ever.
Was there today
by Pikster on Apr. 27, 2016
JSNAT I hear your frustrations. Problem is if they stay within the regulation numbers nothing you can do. If they poach different story all together. I don't see any limits for tiger trout which could add to confusion. Catch and release is still my preference. Keeps the kids excited.
by JAG on Apr. 25, 2016
I was there two weeks ago and landed 13 tigers and 4 bows all in the 1.5 - 3 lbs range
by Lee H on Apr. 25, 2016
Yes stryker2 there is spot to launch a boat there and it's electric or hand power only
by Bhlehr on Apr. 22, 2016
Lots of places to fish from Shore. Or to put a small boat in. I was on there last year with my Float Tube. But you don't really need the boat, as you can cast from Shore pretty much anywhere.
by Fishininsteadofworkin on Apr. 22, 2016
I'm looking to bring my little girl fishing this coming week. Is this place any good to do a little shore fishing or is there anywhere (lake or river) someone can recommend bringing a 4 year old for their first time fishing. Thanks for your help.
by Stryker2 on Apr. 22, 2016
Is there somewhere I can launch a jon boat from on this lake? I have it on asmall trailer. Tx in advance... :))
by JSnat on Apr. 18, 2016
Some guys keeping every fish they catch, it's sickening. Gave them an earful, next time it'll be more if I see it again. Selfish losers ruining it for everyone.
by ChrisFisher on Apr. 16, 2016
Nice Spot! First Family fishing outing. Had a few bits but nothing landed. Probably cause we have never fished before:) spent half our time detangling our spinning reels...but we had an awesome time! Can't wait to go again.
by Cedomil on Apr. 10, 2016
The ice is off. I Was there 3 days ago
by Fisherman20 on Apr. 8, 2016
Hey anyone know if the ice is off yet
by Donnie D on Apr. 3, 2016
some stock lakes get shut down (close) for the winter ..like Muir lake..but most are open all year long..
by Fishing1012 on Apr. 2, 2016
You never know with the warm weather
by sedubius on Apr. 2, 2016
Is the 5 inch ice report accurate? I would think that there would be open water after today then.
Stocked lakes don't close but be cautious if you go on ice
by Droc01 on Apr. 1, 2016
Does this lake not close like the others cause stocked

I think they are running low but in the last 2 days we have caught about 15 fish, about 10 tiger and 5 rainbow
by Donnie D on Feb. 15, 2016
took the kids ice fishing here today but we got skunked..talked to a few other people but it seem,s no one is catching anything now..must be low oxygen
by firstname.lastname@example.org on Feb. 13, 2016
Fished Feb 6 off far end of island. Caught two nice sized tigers in 3 hours. fish sitting 2-3 feet below ice and very cloudy water below that. My guess is the oxygen is almost gone.
by Whsman on Jan. 25, 2016
Beautiful day! Zero fish! Had good intel and great lure and bait combos. Biologist told us the oxegen levels are very low. Im zero fish for 2 trips the last 2 weeks. Im going somewhere else

Is there any perch in this lake
by Auger827 on Jan. 14, 2016
Had a great day on the ice. Was out around 8 and off just after noon. In about 10 FOW. Tried lots of different hooks and baits but didn't get any bites until I started using little orange jig head and yellow power bait. Lots of bites after that. No tiger caught and only kept one rainbow.
by southcookingguy on Dec. 30, 2015
Had a great afternoon. Orange wire worm and yellow power bait. Drilled one hole and caught 4 nice tigers. Merky water and 8" of ice. Make sure to realese the fish to keep a good thing going. Bring your licenses

Took awhile to find this lake on ifish. But anyways went there and camped july 3-5. Took the canoe in the water for the first time. I noticed a lot of pockets around the lake so I started fishing there 5am and bingo. Caught 2 on first day then 1 the next. Took awhile to find where their hiding. I used orange Power bait eggs. Move it around dont bobber it.
by Spanky420 on Jun. 12, 2015
Was out camping/fishing may long and the lake had just been stocked with 8" to 14" bows. Caught and released my limit each day. Hoping more do the same to keep this fishery going for my grand kids to enjoy.
by ChrisB on May. 11, 2015
Anyone been out to black nugget this may yet? How's the fishing?
by Spanky420 on Feb. 16, 2015
Out again on Sunday and not sure what's up but water is murky and we were skunked again. Very surprised to not see any other ppl out here. Can't wait till summer to spend some weekends with the family out here,a great little fishery and golfin next door, the best of all worlds.

Yes it is open for ice fishing. I would get there soon. It usually starts to slow down January into February.

Not even a bite. Talk to the grounds keeper and said there running deep it would take dynamite to catch them. Lol. Beautiful day tho. Good day to drink some beers and chill I guess.
by Shabba on Jul. 5, 2013
No action . Talk to some people there not biting , no nibbles , nothing
by Madmak on May. 20, 2013
Spent four hours in a boat today and not a single bite. Lots of fish rising. I think there was a hatch on and they had enough to eat. Lots of weeds in this pond already. Too many for me. This pond is probably best fished from shore. Costs $2 per person to fish here or $4 a family. Not a big deal.
by iFish Guest on Mar. 31, 2013
Fished yesterday from 8am till 1:30pm, not a bite and no fish on camera. Strange because definitely was fish here end of summer. Anybody have any tips on where in particular they may be in this lake in the winter? -boots
by Big Hoff on Jan. 3, 2013
Fished 5 hrs today, not a single bite. Ice is 10-12 inches. Locals said fishing has been slow for past couple of weeks.
by Bob on Dec. 23, 2012
How thick is the ice out their? Anybody know? I was fishing off shore in the summer, caught one but that's about it. It was probably 2 pounds at least, but it would b nice 2 try her out on the ice only if a person knew how thick it was.
