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!
by blue nose on Apr. 18, 2017
I was out first thing this morning. Lots of fish on radar! But no bites, nibbles, nothing! No matter what I presented!
by bucktail on Apr. 16, 2017
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

by Lanabeans on Apr. 14, 2017
What are the fishing hours at pine coul
by FrenchFisherman on Apr. 13, 2017
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.
by MrShark on Apr. 12, 2017
The ways of Fish and Wildlife are mysterious. Thanks.
by NorthernYaker on Apr. 11, 2017
Likely netting to study the fish populations before the recent big regulation changes I would suspect.
by MrShark on Apr. 11, 2017
Big netting? Sounds odd. Did it look like someone was simply trying to poach?
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...
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...
by NorthernYaker on Apr. 10, 2017
Spawning plays a small role in the slow action, Water temps are the big factor. Go small and slow...
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
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.
by walleye finder on Apr. 8, 2017
so may is the best fishing time for eyes
by Luis B on Apr. 8, 2017
Yout a smart guy...You should consider the idea and what's all about not the Gramma. Smarten up
by MrShark on Apr. 8, 2017
Which proves -- once and for all -- that fishermen will never be grammarians.
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.
by Houston1 on Apr. 7, 2017
All walleye are gone. My Asian buddies fished them up.
by walleye finder on Apr. 7, 2017
no ones the res is fished out they are stocking trout
by Nviro on Apr. 7, 2017
Nope, just trout.
are they still stocking it with walleye
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...)
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 Piken on Apr. 7, 2017
Anymore info then "lakes dead"???
by walleye finder on Apr. 6, 2017
I am confused people used to say they caught like over 50 eyes and in 2017 the lake seems to be dead?
please help me

by Piken on Apr. 6, 2017
Does anyone know what the water levels are like? I would love to launch a boat on Sunday!
by NorthernYaker on Apr. 5, 2017
No tags needed
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.
by GUNDOG on Apr. 4, 2017
Have you guys heard that they are opening this like up for a 3 walleye limit? There is some confusion as to whether a walleye tag is needed..can anyone clarify?

Ice Report: 14 inI highly recommend that no one drives on the ice. It is very soft, the auger went through the ice like a hot knife through butter.
by Seanzee on Feb. 14, 2017
Was out Sunday Feb 12, 2017 with 3 friends and got skunked. Not even a sign on the fish finder
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.
by Jjolg on Jan. 7, 2017
Been out twice and both times very slow and no fish landed. This waa by the boat launch

Quantity over quality. Caught 101 walleye, all in the 14-17" range, in 4.5 hrs this morning from my float tube. 15 fow using jig and 1/2 minnow. It was wild and monotonous.

by neilsbohr on Jun. 5, 2016
Fished near the bridge for about 2 hours today. Hooked up with about 7 using smelts but only managed to bring two small walleye to shore. I did get to jealously watch as a fellow about 50 yards from me brought up a decent looking Pike

Fished May 15th and got 12 pickeral. Hubby got 5 pickeral and 1 pike. Threw them all back. Lots of fun though.
by David_g on May. 20, 2016
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.
by Guchio on Apr. 15, 2016

by Driveby Fisher on Feb. 21, 2016
Was out on Saturday Feb. 20 fished from 09:00 to 1:00pm not a single bite. There were six of us out, max lines in. Saw a few fish on the vexilar but that was it. Super windy out. The ice measured 12 inches consistently but was spongy at the shore line edges. Didn't see anyone else out there other than our group.
by GUNDOG on Feb. 19, 2016
Anybody been here lately?? Ice thickness or pool depth??
by Fishmen on Feb. 6, 2016
Was at the boat launch today from 1000 - 1400 without a single bite! Wind gusts made it almost impossible to use a shelter. Guys who were fishing near the bridge said they had nothing all day either. Ice was 15"
by jason bugye on Feb. 4, 2016
Bites were slow but the ice is fine if your not near the bridge. There's open water there

Anybody getting any action at the bridge?

by Zebra Muscle on Sep. 3, 2015
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 Fishing on Credit on Aug. 29, 2015

by fearnofish on Aug. 22, 2015
Heading out today to troll for some pike. Fingers crossed!
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.
by 5RNA5 on Aug. 7, 2015
has anyone had success trolling for pike?
by Hoonigan on Jul. 20, 2015
Went fishing on a Sunday. Fished between 8am to 2pm. Was biting all day. Caught about 40 walleyes between me and my buddy. Caught alot for the first 4 hrs and slowed down once it got hotter. Great place. Lots of boats out, making waves pushing our tiny raft away lol

For those of you who have fished here last spring/summer, what bait works best? I am new to Alberta, have only been here about a year and a half, I haven't had near the luck fishing out here that I am accustomed to back in Nova Scotia. Now... I am also used to fishing Bass which I know isn't possible here %uD83D%uDE14. Any hints/tips that anyone could provide would be much appreciated as my 5 yr old girl is getting as antsy as myself at our lack of catches! Thanks!

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!

by slew on Jan. 27, 2015
Caught 3 more burbot. Going to go sleep in the civic. And pack up at daybreak.
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!

25-30 ft water. Jigs with small smelt. 29 Walleye View on Map
by iFish Guest on Aug. 17, 2014
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 ;)

Was here on Aug 5th, around the south end. Lots of nibbles but failed to haul in. Looked like the action was up by the bridge. Nice launch.

Caught 4 walleye today! From shore, near the middle bridge. The water was pretty dirty and shallow. Put together a little video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0sGtNYFXU8

@habfan lol are you aware of the mercury content in this lake? Even if they open it up, you can eat one, not me.
by Habfan on Mar. 23, 2014
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 !!!!

burbot is fished out. Too many people know about "the spot". and now all the walleye are dying of hunger
by iFish Guest on Mar. 11, 2014
Was out on march 6 and fished from 5-9 pm. Tried 4 different spots on south end of lake and nothing. Used white jigs with minnow and just wallet rugs with minnows .

does anyone know where is the boat launch is at cross coulee going to try it this spring
by iFish Guest on Feb. 18, 2014
Was out all day till 6:30pm Monday. Didn't mark but a few fish and only landed two. Seems pretty slow for a lake that's suppose to have a million walleye in it. Fished near the secondary highway half way up the res.
by Nviro on Feb. 2, 2014
Does anybody know if the burbot are moving yet? Any feedback would be appreciated!

Does anyone know where theres good perch fishing
Does anyone know if there is anywhere in Calgary that sharpens auger blades
by iFish Guest on Jan. 20, 2014
Was there Sunday. Managed 12. All walleye. Didn't look like anyone else was catching but me. I am ok with that. :p
by MedicFly on Jan. 17, 2014
Spent all day fishing at different depths. Started the day out at the boat launch and caught one small pike with no other bites. 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.
by BassSlayer on Jan. 17, 2014
Anyone pulling out decent size burbs? Looking for a good spot
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!

Ice Report: 13 inPunched holes at bridge on 527, all around 13". Slow fishing, 3 eyes in 2 hrs. Fished 34 to 21 feet, jig head and minnow. Fished south side of bridge closest to lookout point. Any suggestions for decent ice fishing on this lake? Please be aware of thinning ice as you near the bridge, noticeably less that 10" when I stopped

by iFish Guest on Jun. 1, 2013
great burbot fishing but not a lot of pike. Got one 8 pd and one 6 pd burbot fishing late and a lot of small walleye. Good to see conservation out checking for poachers
by iFish Guest on May. 26, 2013
Non stop walleye, got 25 too 30 from the campground side from the bridge. Too many people on dock

14 walleye here. Casting from rocksView on Map
Caught 14 walleye in a couple hours. All between 15-20 inches. Was using white silicone streamers on weighted bead head hooks.
by iFish Guest on May. 18, 2013
My friend and I caught a dozen fish each and everyone we saw was pulling in fish. Great lake for beginners. A small lead with a small smelt or medium smelt cut in two works wonders. Kids can cast 4 feet from the dock by the campground and catch fish all day.

Anyone know how thick the ice is now?
by iFish Guest on Feb. 20, 2013
Went fishing Feb. 17th and the Southeast side near the bridge had ice that was only 6 inches thick, and lots of open water around the bridge. But the fish were sure biting.
by Safhlhockey on Feb. 19, 2013
Feb 18. 18 inches ice. Numerous walleye on camera in day, but the bite was slow. No shortage of Ling after dark, but all very small.
by Safhlhockey on Feb. 12, 2013
Feb 11. 18 inches ice at launch. Fished 2 hrs. None on ice. Lots of walleye on camera.

Where are all the pike at? Catching walleye by the boat load, few burbs too but nil on the pike
by Tripx on Jan. 7, 2013
First time fishing this lake. Got a few pointers from another fisherman there and landed 6 walleye. Also seen one burbot on the cam.
by Big Blue on Jan. 6, 2013
Perfect, thank you!
by Boots on Jan. 6, 2013
Just look for the smelts with the small barely visible fin between dorsal and tail, those are only ones not considered bait fish and are salt water origin.
I went to superstore for smelts, they only have freshwater, regs say no freshwater smelt so where do I get the saltwater smelts for bait?
by Steve on Jan. 5, 2013
Are you allowed to have quads on pine coulee to ice fish
by Big Blue on Jan. 2, 2013
South side for a few hours, no hits, was slow. I suspect I had wrong bait.
by FishBlunts420 on Jan. 1, 2013
14-16 inches of ice. 3 walleye. great day of fishing, can't wait to head back.

by AznRiceMan on Dec. 9, 2012
Went out today with a couple buddies and fishing was pretty slow. Managed only a few burbs in 8 hours near the launch. Ice was 4-6" all around. Mild wind and a beautiful day.
by Chilly on Sep. 10, 2012
Went on Sept. 9th and was on the water from 9:30am to 2:30pm. We caught 50 - 60 Walleye. Nothing bigger than 1 pound but lots of action. Had my two kids with me and they had a blast.
by Al on Sep. 5, 2012
I went to pine coulee reservoir cause friend of mine told me it's a good place to fish. he is absolutely right. I caught 30 walleye in just more than an hour. I fish from the shore. It was fun.
by karpy on Aug. 31, 2012
I took our 6 year old grandson to Pine Coulee and he caught 20 walleye in 3 hours...I've fished there 7 or 8 times in the past couple of summers and have had tremendous fishing each time...this lake is fun for beginners and children...no boredom setting in here...!
by BIG_MIKE on Aug. 17, 2012
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.
by Daniel on Aug. 17, 2012
Fished pine coulee for the last 2 days terrible fishing stay away. Fished from the bridge not even a bite. Maybe a boat is the ticket to get nice and deep? Do not try from shore until it really cools off.
by Freeman on Aug. 11, 2012
North of bridge westside great fishView on Map
by Softhackle on Aug. 8, 2012
Tons of Walleye. Found them at 12-14 feet of water. Tons of water skiers too but big enough lake to get away from them. Nice little lake
by Fishin eyes on Jul. 31, 2012
Was fishing by the bridge with no luck when a nice man pulled up in his boat and offered to take us out fishing went to a spot just north of the hwy527 bridge and the three of us pulled walleye after walleye. Must have caught 80 fish between the 3 of us in a few hours. Great place and a nice guy.

Any other good off shore fishing spots, the docks get to crowded at times
by NC on Jun. 29, 2012
Caught tons of walleye within 3 hours today ( use yellow/orange jigheads with half a smelt a couple reels off of bottom at the campgrounds white dock) remember to release all walleye you catch as it is illegal to keep them.
by Larry58 on May. 21, 2012
Spent a couple of hours been blown around the lake. Water was really cold and no fish biting either eyes or pike. Cold front coming in,I'll blame that!
by Cody2727 on May. 20, 2012
Went there yesterday and pulled out a foot and a half pike and right before I was going to leave coughs a 3 footer 11 pounds

This is a great lake to take the kids. Pickerel rig and some smelt and you will kill em
