Heading to Island Lake

4 posts in this topic

I friend of mine has a cabin on Island Lake south of Langby and has invited a group of guys to go down and spend the weekend. I don't know anything about the lake, and was wondering if anyone could give me some info. (ice conditions, and what a person would catch) Thanks for any help you can give me.

Take LOTS of adult beverages!!! Island is not a lake that you would travel to for the fishing. There are some pretty tight walleye regs in force to try and bolster the numbers. All 17-26 inch walleyes must be released. (course that doesn't matter now) The crappie population is non-existent. The perch numbers are alright, but the size is on the smaller end. 34% of the perch sampled were 9", but thats what you have to look forward to. You might catch some bigger ones, but you have to weed through the smaller ones to get them.

But hey, it's better than working. Right??

I know of some people that have done really well on panfish there, but they havent hit it lately. They were finding them in 12 - 16 foot range, but like I said that was a while ago, so who knows if they are still hitting. Not sure about the ice either.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
