New to the Lake? 

We will be featuring a different lake activity each month you may consider trying.

Try: Ice Fishing

Ice fishing historically has been very popular on Chestermere Lake. Local anglers and those out of town often come to fish primarily for Northern Pike. The South side of the Lake is where fisherman typically set up fishing huts. Fish have been caught that have weighed up to four pounds. It may be worthwhile to scope out some of the other shallower parts of the lake, particularly if the south end is busy. If you are interested in ice fishing, be sure to get your fishing license and check to ensure you are fishing during an authorized season.

What you need to get started:

  • Fishing license
  • Fishing rod
  • Auger
  • Shelter
  • Warm winter wear ex. gloves, hat, scarf, insulated boots etc.
  • Check ice measurements before you head out!
