I was visiting Drumheller with my family back at the start of June. And we wanted to see how the fishing was around, and we didn't want to try the river because it was high and was as clear as mud. So we walked into one shop and asked this one lady if there was any good fishing spots around and she told us what places to try out , she gave us about 6 locations and Carolside was the one we chose, she said it was a bit of a drive but it was worth it. And it absolutely was. Almost every cast I'd have one go for it. At one point I saw four of them launch at the lure as I pulled it out of the water. And by the end of the day we had caught over 70 pike. And our biggest being over 15 pounds. I had lost and few spoons because I wasn't using steel leader. But the spoons we were using were called the Mepps Syclops, We used Daredevil red and white, and red and yellow Five of Diamonds spoons but didn't produce near as much fish as the firetiger or orange Syclops, we even caught a few on the Rapala Husky Jerk. Now were making a trip to go out with the boat. Hopefully it goes just as well.

I went fishing by the boat launch this afternoon for a couple hours. I caught a dozen pike. Most of them were small, but two were a nice size. The fish have really nice color to them as well. Look very healthy.

Looks like water level too low for fish to survive winter can now get salvage permit for Carolside too bad fishery will take years to recover

If they don't get the dam gate closed in the next few days everything will be gone It will take years to get the fishing back to the caliber we have had

Carolside is a fantastic fishery. Always something, and sometimes its overwhelming. Carolside dam is leaking however, Saw it mysefl Sept 30 2012. Its loosing 4" per day. It doesnt look good. AB Envir should be doing something before the reservoir is empty. This will be hard on the fishery

Similar day to Pouch, caught 12 between 2 of us, all around the legal size limit, nothing big, biggest being 5 lbish, all released. lesson learned, when using braided fishing line on a rod and reel, just use the rod and reel to reel it in, dont do it by hand (like tip ups), you will cut yourself easily! haha, either way, fun day!

Very promising lake. Water level will bary due to irrigation. Never had great luck fishing. Caught lots of pike near old house on east side of resivoir. Shallow on north end. Lots of weeds in summer. Have netted perch fry out of creek when i was young. I always try this lake a few times a year searching for walleeye but have never caught any. I have witnessed sauger being caught in winter
