Out ice fishing for the first time this year, caught 20 brookies, ice is not very good. Lots of top soft areas with water underfoot, the weir is still flowing, be very cautious

Straight out from the weir about 50 yards, some areas have a top layer of slush and water above the ice. Still ify

Using minnows had bites like crazy but, they kept biting part of minnow with no hook. Had one on the line. Was trout of a lifetime. And broke my line. If you catch a fish with a silver and red Williams lure. That's the guy.

Solid ice, depth taken by the spillway

Caught 4 very nice trout in about 5 minutes then not a bite till we left. We were fishing from shore and it's hard to find a place to cast. The water is quite low so the weeds are an issue.

I thing the main question here is what are people catching the Brook Trout on in this lake, which flies, what, bait, what hard lures? Would be nice if some people shared so others could catch some of these picky fish.

if you fish a lake for 8 hours in a canoe and use everythin in your tackle box you would think you would catch something. But i guess not

I've heard Michelle still has ice on it and that's just outside the park, so can't imagine spruce will be open water yet either... That being said, I haven't seen it with my own eyes yet so not sure.

was out ice fishing a month back. the water was crystal clear. ran into a guy that said if you go out past the first point on the right there are walleye. i fished for 4 hours and could see lots of brooks swimming past the hole, sitting infront of the hook and watching but none would take. all seemed to be a good size at least 16"

Ganderlake, I've never heard of anyone ever catching walleye in spruce. I'd be very surprised to hear that someone has. Also never heard of grayling being caught either. Perhaps they've all died.

You maybe looking to catch something, but from what i've seen and heard whatever you catch you'll just end up throwing it back ........

Great Lake to kayak. Spent a couple of nights in the campground caught lots of 20 to 25cm brook trout. Have caught larger early in May.

Awesome little lake to canoe around on. Been catching lots of brook trout. Apparently grayling here, but haven't seen or heard of anyone catching any.

Was out ice fishing on Mar 7, 2014. Ice was about 2 feet thick with about a foot of snow ontop. Fished in about 10 feet of water and landed 2 decent size Brook trout, the bigger one being 17.5 inches. Had plenty of bites and interest. Some small fish in the lake that appeared to be 6-8 inches along with plenty of massive fish swimming by comparable to the size you will find in Bullshead Rainbows. Caught mine on a grey jighead fly. Only downside was both fish had a "black spot" parasite under the skin which makes them unappealing to eat. Will be throwing them back from now on. Definitely going back after ice off to get some if those monsters on the fly.

Went camping there this past weekend and spent all day saturday casting from the dock and dam sides. not one bite but i still had fun, throughout the day about 18 other people came to try their luck, not ond person had a bite. there was a sign saying they dumped 4k arctic greyling in the lake too due to flooding. would try fishing there again cause it so nice.

been to spurce coulee a couple of times and some good luck, I caught about six brook trout with a average size of 3lbs with biggest one weighing in at 3lb10oz, all were caught in tight to the weed beds on flies. if your someone that wants big trout and aren't worried if you don't catch lots of fish this lake is a good spot for you
