Tried fishing here today where we used to always catch for many of years but not a single fish was seen on camera. What a shame that summer kill did to this fishery,

Was out yesterday, about 5" of ice and caught about 10 little perch in about 3 hours. Nothing bigger then 6''. was a fun first hardwater fish but I think the Lake still has some recovering to do.

Is Stoney Lake Closed For Fishing this year? Just heard some rumors want to make sure they are true.

Went out there last weekend to see if they put up signs. Took me about half an hour to find the 8x12 piece of paper pinned on the the cook house which you'd only see in the way of the lake if you knew to look for a sign. Went and try my luck anyway. Drilled a few holes around the lake to check with the camera. Most holes I checked had perch down below. Caught a few but never kept any. Just don't understand why all of a sudden they decide to close this lake because of summer kill or winter kill for that matter. I've never heard of this in the past. I've actually heard of them opening up catch limits for wallet and pike on a lake after a big winter kill here in the same area. The lake still has a catch limit on it for the past few years yet i haven't heard of anyone ever catching a walleye there again.

Hi I just wrote a comment about Stoney (siler) lake being still open for harvest but I just called f/w in Bonnyville and the girl told me that it is open only for catch and release. Please Disrecard my first comment. The phone # in Bonnyville is 780-826-3142 thank you.

by Piercey on Jan. 13, 2017

I read a lot of comments on Stoney (siler) lake being closed do to summer kill but I was just talking to f/w and the girl told me that it wasn't closed. U have read the refs in the 2016 issue. I saw the dead fish on the shore this summer just not sure of the date. The phone that I called is 1-403-340-1542 if anyone else want to call

Good people need to fish there,put fish back and remind others to do the same. If they don't listen report them,receive $250 for your trouble and buy a new ice flasher. F&W can't be everywhere

Ya i told the woman that they better get more signs up cause there are alot of oldtimers that fish that lake dont use the internet or have fancy phones. So they need more then one sign( that wasnt there) around the lake for these guys. But yes no more fishing it till it reopens.

by Reel Crazy on Jan. 3, 2017

Well, what a pathetic job of informing the public about the closure. What about all those that don't or can't access the internet. And, how about not even spelling the name of the lake correctly. If anyone gets fined or charged, they better get off with this blunder!!! On that note, I will not be fishing Stoney until it re-opens.

by Sloughshark87 on Jan. 3, 2017

Im telling you i called this morning. They reassured me 0 is the limit. Follow the regs till march if you want but i pity your bank account if you get caught.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Mikey1781 on Jan. 3, 2017

I called fish and wildlife and yes it is a 0 limit. But like i told them u i didnt see any signs posted. That lake has alot of old people that fish there that dont use the internet so they need to post more signs. Lots of people still fishing this lake and taking fish due to not seeing the signs.

They changed it on sept 16 2016 they make the regulations in January of 2016 of course it still says you can their not going to update it the fact is it summerkilled and it since has been put to zero limit as of September 16 2016 if your so concerned about it call f&w yourself and hear it from them yourself obviously you don't believe anybody on here

by Mikey1781 on Jan. 2, 2017

The actual regulations from this year still has it as 10 perch. Someone needs to get ahold of fish and wildlife to get this confirmed.

by N83 on Jan. 1, 2017

Zero limit , this site is from 2014 and say " refer to newest regulations" you are not allowed to keep any fish

Well, I see the comment on Mywild, however, it says Stony Lake. So, that's not Stoney (Siler) Lake. Until they fix that, no one should get fines. Also, didn't see any signs and it should be in the online regulations as a change, like they have in red for Pigeon and Jackfish. I just emailed ESRD about the issue.

Consider your in laws lucky then bc if a warden came 20 fish over possession is no easy fine to pay

_Stony Lake__Fishing__Catch and Release Regulation Placed on Stony Lake__Over the summer Stony lake experienced a significant summer kill. Conservation measures are needed in order to allow fish populations to recove. A zero limit catch limit has been put in place to address this need.__Signage has been placed at various access points along the lake to notify public about the regulation change.__For more information regarding regulation changes, please contact the Fish and Wildlife office in that area:_ Fish & Wildlife Area Contacts __Posted: Sep 16, 2016 _

Read on mywildalberta, click fishing then click regulations and the on the left click stoney lake and u will see that it has been changed to a 0 retention as of September...if that's not enough call your local f&w officer if you don't believe it

by Mikey1781 on Dec. 30, 2016

And i just read the regs again and there is nothing about a change on this lake. Still says 10.

by Mikey1781 on Dec. 30, 2016

There are no posts around the lake stating its 0 limit. No fish cops around and my in laws live in the area and go here all the time. There was a very big summer kill but there are still perch being caught. We were there today and only kept 4 due to them not biting. But there are no signs at the one entry point on this lake.

by T-man on Dec. 30, 2016

It is true... go to mywildalberta.com under regulations/ Stoney lake it says it's been changed to zero limit and there has been signage at various access point on the lake to inform public

Sure isn't closed, regs still say 10 Perch in case anyone was wondering about the false post below. I was there on Wednesday and it hasn't summer killed either as the guys fishing next to us were seeing tons of fish on the camera but they just were not very interested. We still managed 20 keepers between the 3 of us. People fishing around us had similar luck. I just don't like when ppl make false posts. How about just don't post at all. Tight lines everyone!

Really bad summer kill this year due to the blue algae. Inlaws should be heading out to try soon and see what its like now. Hopefully its still not bad cause this lake was so awesome for a good day of perch fishing.

Slav98 I use a tiny jig with meal worm or maggots. About 10-13 feet of water. Took me a while to find them but once I did they were bitting fairly steady. Had throw back lots of littler ones also.

Lake is pretty much finished now algae spread by too many people not washing there gear between lakes to much garbage and pollution to the thousands of people that soiled the lake to its tipping point good work which lake is next.
