I git 3 rainbow yesterday and one had 5 baby carp inside of it about 2 inches long so the trout are doing there job but this means that the carp are reproducing wich is not good

Thats right throw or burn the carp because they are garbage fish

Star Star Star Star Star

by Flyfisher54 on Jan. 28, 2017

Does everyone know the carp are throwbacks? Throwback in the bush as far as you can, not in the water!

How does the water look?

by Jayjayjay on Jan. 13, 2017

I go here and use a worm to fully cover a size 6 or 4 hook. I let it drop to the bottom and bring it up about 8-9 inches. Usually me and 2-3 friends will go and catch our limit in a few hours every time.

Anybody ice fishing here lately? Any luck?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Jayjayjay on Nov. 5, 2016

Yes. There are a lot of carp in there now and the Browns were meant to kill them off. I really hope they get the fish population up because I really enjoy bloow Indian.

it seems that the abundance of smaller fish (fingerling size) are keeping them all well fed. We kept a few bleeders rather than tossing them back to die, there were chock full bait fish? Weird, some we goldfish type dimensions, Persian Carp babies? Not sure, but slow for sure. Maybe the brown trout are eating all of the rainbows? Although I thought the reason for the browns was to eat the carp.

by CaptSumTingWong on Oct. 11, 2016

My father in law loves it there. Not this year. Not sure what the heck happened? They stock it to the hilt!

by Jayjayjay on Oct. 11, 2016

Very curious because I may do some ice fishing. Info would be very good!!

by strokerpin23 on Oct. 2, 2016

Just to let you know I just came from blood ondian reservoir this morning, I caught a persian carp around 7 am then I put it on a plastic bag without water or ice. We left blood indian reservoir around 10:30 am, going to calgary. When we arive to calgary we went to a mall to eat and got home by 3:30 pm. We I got home to clean the fish, I was surprise that it was still alive and if you put it into water it can still swim.

A newbie at fishing here and I'd like to bring my sons, 14 and 10 to experience it. Do we need fishing licenses? What kind of bait to use? Rod and reel good enough? What time of the day is the best time to go fishing?

Was out for the derby today and fishing was great! Had good luck both with Worms from shore and Trolling Mepps in the Boat. Anyone stick around to see what size took the Derby?

by littlegary on May. 21, 2016

HELP! Does anyone know if the annual fishing derby is on at blood the first Saturday of June?

by Brad2930 on May. 14, 2016

Trout do 90% of their feeding below the surface. Use nymphs and leech patterns suspended 2-6' below a strike indicator.

by Jayjayjay on May. 12, 2016

Nice. Right on man. I always just use a rod and reel but I bought a fly rod last week. If I go there you think I should use a sinking fly?!

Star Star Star Star Star

by Troutman on May. 10, 2016

Jayjayjay they where all rainbows except for 1 brookie that was around 10" I was use a black micro leech on a sinking tip fly line. It looks like the brookies and Browns where only stocked this year and our still quite small.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Jayjayjay on May. 9, 2016

Anybody out fishing lately?!

Star Star Star Star Star

by LRD V8R on Apr. 14, 2016

burge To target the carp I would suggest this recipe from a champion carp fisherman from the UK: Simple 1/4 Oz slip weight rig with small, thin diameter circle hook and for the bait equal parts course corn meal and flour, half of that amount sugar and warm water till it forms a thick dough

Star Star Star Star Star

by burge on Apr. 13, 2016

Was out yesterday nothing big kind of slow You can only keep 3 trout nothing big. How do you catch those carp?

Star Star Star Star Star

by Bemoredog on Apr. 13, 2016

There is a 3 Trout limit. However, you can only take either 1 Brown or one Brook Trout.The other two would have to be Rainbow. Also any Brook Trout under 35cm MUST BE RELEASED. There are Russian Carp in this reservoir so the trout are under pressure and catch limits have been restricted. Target the carp if you can.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Troutman on Apr. 3, 2016

Was out there Friday and the fishing was quite good also it is everybody's who fishes to read the regulations even if you don't need a license. The limits have changed with a size limit
