No ice on the lake for quite some time. Just out yesterday caught 7 between my dad and I with 3 of them being over the 50 cm mark. Released them all. Windy but some pretty good fishing.

Went 2 days in a row for a couple hours with only 1 to show but a dandy at that all of 60 cm.

getting close to that time again, has anyone seen if the ice is coming off?

Just curious if anyone would prefer a slot size in the lake rather than just 1 over 50cm. Something like keep 1 between 45 and 50cm, anything under/over would get thrown back. Would give the bigger ones a chance to see just how big they would get.

I kinda think u might mean a 57CM Trout not a 57" Inch. Because a 57 cm is a very nice trout regardless! Cuz 57" would be a 144.78 so 145cm, which im sure would shatter all prov trout records. Great fish either way

by Pete06 on Sep. 29, 2014

Two casts with a medium spoon caught me a 57"rainbow.... AWAOME!

If you're not into fly fishing we've ALWAYS had good lick with size #7 Helin Flatfish lures. Standby colors are frog, perch, black glitter. Will take brightly colored ones as well. No stores really stock them in Medicine Hat though, have to pick them up in Wholesale Sports Calgary.

Hundreds of fish going over the spillway this problem needs to be solved. Many over 50cm any ideas ?

Been 6 years since last there. Isn't the same fishery now...but still fun. Fish there now just need time to grow.

I can not say anything negative about this lake. Myself and a good friend went out on Sunday, He brang in over 20 plus fish, and my self over a dozen with nothing measuring under 16 inches. An amazing lake, from the boat dock across to the southeast corner we had the most action.

I agree, this lake should be catch and release. There are lots of lakes close by to catch trout for the bbq like Michelle, Cavan, Reesor and Spruce Coulee. I don't know why anyone would want to keep a big one to eat when they usually taste like mud anyways. It would be nice to be able to go and have a real chance at a true trophy rainbow but as soon as they are 50cm they are in the back of someones truck. Sad.

Has the potential to be a world class trout lake, but limit is set wrong...how do you grow a trophy fish when your allowed to keep the big ones. Lake should be catch and release only.

Lakes looking healthy this year, fish are biting consistently.

Caught 2 average sized rainbows in 45 mins of casting spinners. Water high and lots of growth around lake making access difficult.

I don't know what is happening I heard alot of the fish went over the spillway because of the high water.

Seems to have almost completely winter killed, fishing is very poor. Used to catch 20+ a day on a regular basis last year, been there twice this year and never even had a bite. I also talked to many other fisherman out there and they had the same result. Lots of dead trout around the edge of the lake.

Very hard fishing these trout by a dozen or so will swim around your bait and not touch been a trophy lake to long it's time to open it up to a bait lake with a limit of 1 over 50 they have seen the bait to many times

Fish seem to prefer flies here. No bait allowed anyways. Regular conservation officer visits.

Great little lake. Easy to get to and fun to fish. Can be very mossy though.
