Cold Lake, Alberta and Tobin Lake, Saskatchewan are named among the top Canadian ice fishing locations.
The 2023 ice fishing season has begun and FishingBooker has named Cold Lake as one of the best ice fishing spots across Canada.
The list says Cold Lake has a great selection of fish species to choose from like Perch, Burbot, Walleye, and Northern Pike, but the Lake Trout is what makes the area truly special. The blog notes many people travel across the provinces to arrive in the Lakeland’s over 370 square kilometres of surface area water to join in on the fishing fun.
FishingBooker says the fish and size of the lake are not the only catches in Cold lake as the city has a friendly and welcoming community that shares its knowledge with visitors and locals alike.
The annual ice fishing tournament for Lake Trout anglers was also highlighted with a special mention to the “Cold Lake Special” jig with a stronger hook attached.
Tobin Lake, Saskatchewan made the cut especially for record breaking Walleye along with Trout, Perch, Whitefish, Burbot, and Pike. With the Saskatchewan River being Tobin Lake’s main inflow and outflow, FishingBooker notes that anglers can even reel in a Sturgeon.
