Went out for a couple hours but no luck. Fish weren't jumping or biting. Tried multiple worms, and spoons with power bait but didn't work. Ever since the lake was stocked a couple weeks ago it's been really hot so I'm guessing their all at the bottom some where

The gate to the lake is still locked so you will need to walk all your gear from the small parking lot off the West side. I was out yesterday and no luck. Saw some small ones on the camera but nothing good. I know this lake was fished hard last winter so not sure how many mature fish are left.

Are you still able to drive in from the West off the road up to the lake edge or do you have to walk in from the road?

Was hoping to be first lol. Good enough to walk on. Only parking is at the road. Blocked off from there. Gotta climb the gate and walk on from there.

I also saw several other catching. Happily tell people "my secrets"when they ask on the lake.

Not likely,or there will be no fish left for me to catch.

Perhaps you care to share your secret with us. As I said there were lots of people fishing and nobody cought even 1 fish. And I was using flies that never failed me on several other trout habitats.

Nailing both rainbows and tigers the last 2 night, decent fishing you just have to know when and where they are likely to be and what they want to eat.

Just got back yesterday. I have a Zebec (same as a Zodiac). Fished for 3 days with my son-inlaw. Both used various wet and dry flies. Floating line, sinking line (Fly fishing) and also several types of trout spinners and spoons on both fly and mono line. NOTHING. Several people were fishing both from shore and in boats. Nobody caught anything in the 3 days I was there. My GPS showed that there was several fish in the lake but they were not biting. Very poor, will not be back.

I didnt fish BMN at all last year. The year before they got mad and threatened to call the police if you were on their property. I wonder what changed.

by Donnie D on May. 7, 2017

A great evening at BNM. Water visibility was minimal but still landed a few. Attn to anyone going here, the main gates are closed you now much enter through the campground and sign in at the office. It is free but for some reason this is now how it is done.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Just so EVERYBODY knows, you cannot keep tiger trout in this lake. You're a poacher if you do
