I’m looking for ice conditions or if the lake is still open for boat access and use. We are having a very mild spell at the moment after experiencing a rather cold start to winter in the fall season here in Southern Alberta. I’m trying to save my self a scouting mission too Forty Mile Reservoir if anyone should of been there of late. Thanks

I when to check it out Dec14 there was around 12 to 22 cm of ice thanks to the cold days we been having. I got a 9pound 71cm walleye beautiful female wish I released, fish like that are hard to find keep it on mind bigger the fish the more eggs they can spawn. Don’t kill those trophy fish please.

Foothills man.... ice was around 18" when I was out early January caught a few jack stayed right around boat launch there is about a 30ft drop off there so the ability to land all species is in your favour
