Ice is now 19 ". Clean and clear, no fish to be found on the west side. Heck of a haul in with a sled for no fish.

Fished in the float tube for 3 hours, had 6 bites. Not much rising, the lake was dead tonight. The biggest fish I saw rise was 10". To say it was slow was an understatement. I fished a sink tip, tried probably 15 different types. Nothing seemed to work. They were rising, taking a caddis like fly size about 28. But with little rising, I didn't bother trying to dry fly. Shore anglers weren't doing any better.

by Headstrong on Jul. 17, 2016

Belly boats and fly rods today. Started early and fished whole morning. Lots of fish, nothing bigger than 14" though. But very good action. Fish were taking to black leech type flies or green dragon flies. A good day of fishing.

Got a very unexpected but very exciting 22 inch rainbow yesterday fishing from shore on south side of lake. Usually only pull the little 7-10in guys out of this lake. Power bait always works well.

I guess I should have said a small boat or inflatable. There isn't a boat launch there so don't take anything that you can't carry.

by Couldn't catch a cold fishguy on May. 29, 2016

Salters lake was just stocked with 7500 12" rainbows. The shore is a little soft though. So I would get there early to get a spot on the dock. Or take a boat. No gas motors. Lots of people are catching on flys and small spoons/spinners. I use a pickerel rig and white marshmallows.Star lake can be good too, lots of room off shore. The trout seem fussy there though. I've heard of 14/16" coming out of there. 13"was my biggest.

by Kefka on May. 29, 2016

All is well now and everything is understood. Been to the twice already after getting all the info in order. I landed a few nice rainbows and there's no doubt in my mind that there are some lunkers in the lake. Anyone have any recommendations for other lakes for trout fishing? East pit lake is is worth the time that's for sure.

I apologize NorthernYaker your right i am wrong on the tiger trout I miss recalled it for East Twin lake!

Star Star Star Star Star

by petetherocker on May. 27, 2016

as NorthernYaker has said: GET, READ AND UNDERSTAND THE REGS.. Some might be confused as to the stocking. RNBT is 'Rainbow' CLCL is the 'strain' of Rainbow, in this case it means Campbell Lake, as shown in the bottom of the stocking summary. Go to the mywildalberta.com website and you can download the stocking reports going back as far as 2009 and there is no other trout species stocked in East Pit apart from rainbows.

by NorthernYaker on May. 27, 2016

No tigers or cutthroats in East pit.... As we already said get, read, and understand the regs...

Star Star Star Star Star

by BiggieB on May. 27, 2016

I've never personally fished east pit and even i know they don't stock it with Cut throat, if you mean rainbows, and tiger trout then yes they do stock the lake with all of those two, any others are accidental and its a 5 trout limit... If people read the fancy regulations that come with your license when you purchase it this type of confusion/question wouldn't happen....JUST SAYING!

by Kefka on May. 26, 2016

It was just a question man. No need to get so sore about it lol. I'm new to the province and was just curious about size restrictions for trout. And by the way man there's cutthroats in the lake. By the sounds of it you're not havin much luck lol.

by NorthernYaker on May. 24, 2016

No cutthroats in the lake...I could answer bit the answer in IN THE REGS...and it's super easy to find, I suggest you getvu copy before you touch your fishing rod again...

Star Star Star Star Star

by Newfie69 on Aug. 16, 2015

Had a decent evening fishing last night. Myself and a buddy landed 1 each plus had lots of hits just as the sun was going down. First time evening fishing here and it was the most action I had seen also. Not big fish but was still fun if you are looking to catch and release.

Well it's summer fishing at East Pit so...... Very slow . Caught one that was rising after I cast a damsel fly nymph at it and that was it. Not many risers .Saw a school of about 8 in the shallows on the east end but spooked them. Saw one other person bring one in . I left around 10, it was already over 20 degrees outside .

Ice Report: 16 in
top 4-6 inches is very weak and rotten. The rest of the ice is starting to rot from the bottom. Doesn't take much effort to drill a hole. Do not recommend walking out on ice without propery safety gear, ice picks, rope and someone to help in case you break through.

Has anyone had much luck this winter ice fishing here? I have thrown the kitchen sink at these trout with not much to show. Shrimp, mealworms, power bait, u name it. 1 16"trout and a couple lost at the hole. I have been out 4x times this winter, fished mostly the east end. Any comments???

There is plenty of places to shore fish at East Pit. I've always had luck on the south east side. And yes it is a little way to walk and the hill going down to the lake is long. But there is plenty of places to rest when you go back up.

We're thinking of going to East Pit Lake but can you shore fish there and do you have to walk in quite a ways? Thanks

Let's all help and keep our lakes healthy. Report a poacher if you see someone keeping more than 5 fish. Don't want our lakes to dry up.
