How is this lake to fish from shore?

by Keaton 01 on Jun. 1, 2017

Nice pike along the reeds! No huge ones but most are 50cm. Use a spoon not rubber hooks.

Hey Jim Jim almost any weed bed across from the campground are slow from what I've fished. When we went, we went straight down the middle and caught a tone of hammer handles.

Plan to go camping for over the last weekend of June. Does anyone know a good fishing spot on the shore as well as from a boat? Any tips would be appreciated.

by Jpaul on May. 17, 2015

Went to the lake for the first time. Tried a few casts before seeing a forest fire in the distance. Had to evacuate the campground. Maybe next time.

by FlounderPounder on Feb. 16, 2015

Was out today with my wife. 6 pike, no perch. Good ice

Star Star Star Star Star

by Stryker2 on Jan. 30, 2015

Was there last week for a couple of days and the ice was about 18" but lots of water on top. Couldn't find much fish anywhere, seen the odd jack on camera and no perch. I think parts of this lake is winter killing already.

Diesel truck?? You could drive a cat on there. In the last 2 weeks the ice has really started to drop and is really hard. It is maxing out my auger length at several different lakes. I suggest that people start carrying their extensions with them to avoid disappointment.

Nothing but hammer handles, lots of ice and only a few inches of snow on the lake. Easy to get around.

No perch. Slow for some reason

Any one catching perch?

Star Star Star Star Star

by iFish Guest on Jan. 21, 2014

The wind and warm weather have now let you drive on and fish where you wish. Catching perch is short term with so many aggressive hammerhandle jacks.

Not familiar with the area but wanted to try the lake this weekend with my wife. We'll be walking on, could someone tell where there is good access. Is it worth trying in front of the provincial campground? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Wlked on a tried near the cabins in 10-12 feet of water. no bites and lots of overflow under the snow. Went back to the camp area and tried to drive to the point. Got bogged in, shovelled and backed out. My tires are older all-weather ones but I suggest snow tires, chains or sleds to get to whereever the fish are.

I wish I knew the secret too here!!! I've found the fishin very slow, but the few PERCH I do hook are HUGE!! My best day out there I was fishin the weeds in about 8-10 feet off one of the points!! (see my marker) seen LOTS on the cameras here!! Started the day using a tiny spiner with MAGGOTS, but as the the slowed down I turned to a small yellow jig tipped with a meal worm!!! Anyway GOOD luck, & hopefully u HOOK the TWO pounder I lost right at the top of my hole!!! I seem him, now just have to find him again!!! Cheerz...

by Skiwegian on Oct. 20, 2011

Yes but have you read your rules book? You. Can only take one under 63cm. You can not take bigger because they want the big fish to spawn more eggs...so if you want your big fish go to chump and amisk. Leave the big fish alone at poor buck. :-/
