Sask Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

Well I figured I would try another back lake this weekend. This one looks more promising than Fish Lake as I know there are Jack and Pickerel in Otter Creek. Just below the Picture where I drew an Arrow is a widening of the creek which the Lake has no name would be my destination. There is a really good ATV trail going in of which I knew about through my snowshoe recce in the Winter.

Good time to test my latest project. My Canoe Cart.

Time to load the truck at the Trailer

My destination is about 20 Minutes South West of Big River on the Logging Road that goes to Leoville. What I will do is hide the truck off the Road to a spot that is a Mile from the Tail entrance. Best I keep the truck out of sight and out of flying stones. Ole Spike sure came in Hand with his Energy. He loved the exercise.

Once at the Trail entrance I re Balanced the Canoe to take the weight off my hand. I would pull it rather than pushing it for more control. Next time I do this Ill bring a saw to clear the trail more.

As I got a glimps of the lake I got excited on what could be in the Lake. I also noticed that the shoreline had rocks which is rare in these lakes. Also the water was calm, great for trolling, and the scenery was spectacular. Also I was the only one on the lake. Excellent feeling.

Within 5 minutes I had a fish on. I was using a light Shakespeare outfit and a Jointed Rapala and got the fish to the Canoe but lost him. It fought like a nice Walleye I thought. Too Bad. Then Five minutes later another fish but this time I got a glimpse of green. A Jack I thought. Then I would paddle and got nothing for an hour till I paddled back to where I first started and got hit after hit. The lakes deepest spot was about 20 feet with an average of 16 feet.

 

My Hits were small Jack but good fighting on my light gear.

The Dog better not get too close to that fish or lure

Finally I got into a good fight and a meal

I would try some frozen Minnows on a Pickerel Rig which something cleaned both my hooks before heading back. As luck would have it, I have bad luck with wheel Bearings, so why not the Bicycle wheel on the Cart also. Anyways what do expect from the Dump.

Cool report glad to see your persistence paid off.

I can't believe you'd park a mile from the trail entrance though LOL!

 

Lets see, surrounded by Pyromaniacs, with so called alcohol syndrome that dont give a damn about anybody's property or the law. No Cops around, only after the fact, Logging trucks zooming by with Golf size Rocks scattering in every direction, Does it make sense to find a trail to keep the truck out of site and out of mind, and LOL, SAVES ME ON GAS.

      Hello, thanks for letting me join. I’m from England but I’m coming out to Canada, Ontario for 2 weeks in September. It’s not a fishing holiday but some fishing will definitely be happening. Has anyone got any advice on areas I should visit to try and catch a better carp as when I was out before caught lots of smaller ones so wanted to try and get one over 20lb! Also advice on what licences I need would be great. we are staying a few days in London, then travelling to the kawartha lakes area

    • Fishing the Yukon June 2019

      We have been to the Yukon several times but Alaska was new. My wife Leslie, hurt her back on an ATV ride in to a remote lake so that stopped fishing for about a week. We only fished together 2 days of the nine days in the Yukon. She insisted I do an overnighter alone so I got an extra two days in. Climate change is messing things up...they only had four inches of snow all winter and most of that was in April. One lake was so low that most of the pike habitat was dry

    • Kingston area eastern Lake Ontario salmon/trout fishing

      I used to run 27' boat out of Whitby trolling for Lake Ontario salmon and rainbow trout each summer, and I have been missing it. I moved just north of Kingston a dozen years ago and have concentrated on back lakes bass since then. When I was in Whitby, I could tell you exactly what week the salmon would appear, in what locations and at what depth the best fishing would be. Seldom got skunked if the fish were around. I am thinking of upgrading my 14' tin boat to something that could han

    • New toy, for when I am not fishing *NF*

      So a lot has happened in the past 6 years for me and now here I am.  By that I mean a newer relationship and new hobbies too.  Yes I still fish as often as I can (I just don't share my findings now) but my old passion to ride is back.  Today I finally got my own 'bike'. It's a 2015 Yamaha FZ-07 with less than 1600KM on it and it's mint AND has the upgraded Hindel exhaust!  Time to ride to my spots
