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.

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
