APRIL 22, lots of anglers, on the shores and on boats, no fish caught at all

by BigTomAce on Apr. 22, 2017

Not much for hazards in lake. The few bays can get shallow quick. I don't think there is too much to worry about. A lot of people have their ski boats out there in the summer so probably pretty safe. Lots of weeds mid summer though.

by soulfly on Apr. 19, 2017

Have never fished here before. I was wondering if anyone can tell me of any hazards in the water. I wrecked my last prop at crawling valley. Thanks!

I was out first thing this morning. Lots of fish on radar! But no bites, nibbles, nothing! No matter what I presented!

From our experience last summer each time out we had over 100 fish on 5 plus occasions. Bucktail jigs, worm harness and smelt on pickerel rigs. You'll have to work for thr fish and get creative with presentations. The small bay is great for Pike end of April and early may. Good luck and go fishing

I cant conform "who's or what for" the netting was , it was set up along the North West area of the Bridge and about 50 Feet from shore, it was set up in a fair seize to collect the most of what ever they were collecting.

Likely netting to study the fish populations before the recent big regulation changes I would suspect.

Star Star Star Star Star

by MrShark on Apr. 11, 2017

Big netting? Sounds odd. Did it look like someone was simply trying to poach?

Star Star Star Star Star

by NorthernYaker on Apr. 11, 2017

The lake now has a 3 walleye any size and pike limit now so nobody's catching and releasing. Get your walleye now before it's only tiny rainbows...

Star Star Star Star Star

by FrenchFisherman on Apr. 11, 2017

Love Pine coulee Reservoir for walleye fishing , but I must agree in the decrease in the catch. me and my fishing buds used to pull up about 80 wallys in a day about 5 years ago, last year we pull up maybe 25. please release your walleyes..._CATCH AND RELEASE only....._we did notice tho last year there was a big netting set up North of the bridge, I'm curious to see how many Walleyes we'll catch this year...

Spawning plays a small role in the slow action, Water temps are the big factor. Go small and slow...

Star Star Star Star Star

by burge on Apr. 9, 2017

I was at Bass Pro Shop today everyone is out there but not many fish. Wardens out there but during the spawn walleye don't bite so it will be slow

Star Star Star Star Star

by skunk'd on Apr. 9, 2017

The good thing is that the lake is open, if you want to take the boat out and try your gear. Yes too early for good fishing and low water but the boat launch ramp is very long. Dock won't be out for a while. Enough water to go under the bridge and explore north.

Which proves -- once and for all -- that fishermen will never be grammarians.

by Luis B on Apr. 8, 2017

Everyone is saying that the lake is dead . What none of you know is that every other lake is close because is the spawning time for them (walleye). Give it another month and they will eat like crazy and read a bit about the species you fish for. Cheers

by skunk'd on Apr. 7, 2017

Fished for about 2 1/2 hours this morning, cold and wet. Very slow even around the bridge which is usually very productive. Had one huge take which actually broke my line so beware the fish with a wobbly lure in its mouth. Water levels are VERY low, no more that 30 feet in the middle.

are they still stocking it with walleye

Star Star Star Star Star

by MrShark on Apr. 7, 2017

There still are some walleye there, but they're small and unappealing. Also not many pike and no burbot (or maybe one or two...)

Star Star Star Star Star

by Nviro on Apr. 7, 2017

The survey they put out said that the walleye there were stocked and are a few years away from dying of old age and they don't reproduce much so they'll all be gone soon anyway so might as well catch them to eat them so they can stock it with one of the triploid trout species.

by CAR4Life on Apr. 4, 2017

Pine Coulee Walleyes have gone down significantly 10:1 in the last few years in size and in number hence the failure in stocking it with Walleyes. Hopefully the Pikes got fatter but from my experience so far just in numbers of Pike.

Star Star Star Star Star

by JigyJigy on Jan. 24, 2017

Well, tried Pine Coulee again on Saturday Jan 21. Skunked for the first time in AB (13 years). Finally went to the boat launch area instead of the bridge...driving on the ice was the excitement of the day...which is pretty sad.

by Jjolg on Jan. 17, 2017

I agree gave it another shot Sunday. One walleye landed in 5 hours. Only positive was ice is thick enough to drive on and pack up in a hurry.

by JigyJigy on Jan. 17, 2017

What's happened to this lake? Steady decline in walleye bite production over the past 3 years. Used to be nothing to land 30 fish through the ice in a few hours near the bridge. Was out Dec 31st 3 bites all day - only positive was that they were all landed.

Fished here yesterday Fromm 1100hr to 1300. Water was very low and turbid; too windy to put the canoe in, so fished from the dock. Ran through all the usual spoons and spinners. Landed one walleye and one pike with an orange kit-a-mat spoon by Gibbs. Had 1 nibble and half a doz trailers to the dock, but was otherwise slow. Boat launch is solid.

Fish finder ringing like crazy (everything at 20-25ft) but no action. Algae is bad making for some real poor visibility. Tried trolling, jigging, and boat casting but came up snake-eyes on all counts. Nobody else out there seemed to be doing any better. Couple of cranky old boys on the dock going on about low oxygen in water and lousy fishing lately. A nice lake otherwise.

by MethJohnson on Aug. 21, 2015

So I tried here a week or two ago with a friend. I trolled both sides of the lake from the boat launch to the bridge with not even 1 bite using husky jerks. Next time I try this lake it will for sure be with smelts jigging north of the bridge. Should have known mid summer the fish would be deep. Great launch and nice little power campground beside if your planning on doing a weekend trip. Nice lake, should have prepared a little better before I tried it out.

Been on the northern tip since 430 pm until 8 only one bite. Used smelt and salted minnows. 14" of ice

by fearnofish on Feb. 16, 2015

Lots of open water by the bridge. Tried fishing the boat launch instead about 10-12 inches of ice, fished between 16-20 feet, not even a bite. Tried pickeral rigs, jig heads, even just a single hook all with minnows or smelt. Stayed from 5pm til 830pm. Anyone been catching any burbot or walleye? Because we sure aren't! I want to do an over night trip in my hut, but not if the fishing is that slow! 4th time there this ice season and only managed 2 walleye in a burbot... Painful!

Thanks. I went today and tonight. I agree ice is very poor. I left the civic on the shore. Slow today until about 6pm . So far got 3 burbot and landed 3 eyes. The eyes are small and look stunted. Lots of little nibbles.

by fearnofish on Jan. 26, 2015

I was there yesterday, slew. The ice is getting pretty weak, lots of water on top where I was(south end) we broke through near shore and watched some huge pieces start sinking. Unless we get a cold snap it's only going to get worse. We were still able to find some areas with safe(ish) ice, but it made targeting tricky. I definitely would not drive on the ice. And to top it all off it was a brutally slow day. Didn't see a fish, didn't get any bites. I would say try by the bridge if you go, but be really careful, the ice around the bridge will be getting pretty bad.

Fished pcr yesterday from 2pm til about midnight. Only managed a couple walleye. No burbot. Tried just out from the bridge basically 20-30 feet of water. Using 3/8 Oz glow jig heads with smelt. Anyone have any advice for catching burbot here? I'm thinking next time I try down the south end by willow Creek anyone have much luck down there? I do pretty well for walleye and pike down there in open water, would love to get some burb though! Cheers!

This is always a great place to take kids or friends who just want to catch fish. It's easy to catch 30-50 walleye in a few hours jigging using jig heads and minnows. Anchored down by the bridge or in weed beds with 12-18ft of water. Also there are some BIG pike lurking in there feasting on the walleye ;)

This is what happens when the government stock a lake full of walleyes but don't let you keep any, they get stunted then die of starvation. They would rather let them die off than let you eat one !!! E- mail the the minister and let them know what a great job they are doing !!!!

Moved into deeper water again with no luck and then moved again across the lake to a small inlet and again with no luck there either. Thought we would have had more action.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Nviro on Jan. 8, 2014

Hi Grimace18. I've only caught small walleye in a hole south of 527 maybe only 25' deep but no matter how slow I pulled them up their eyes and swim bladders were rupturing so stopped. The burbot did well there though right before spawning last year so make sure your tackle is appropriate and you keep an eye down the hole so you don't get walleye by-catch. A lot of people fish shallower near 527 for burbs too. Right near the bridge I've seen open water even on the coldest days so be very careful. Haven't been there this year yet so let me know how it goes if you make the trip and good luck!

Daniel if you cannot catch fish in this lake then stay away from fishing. I fish from the shore there exclusively and am disappointed if I don't catch less than 30-40 fish in a few hours. You need to use a Pickerel rig and minnows from the east shore before the bridge.
