i cant speak for the fish farm but i suppose it would be still open water. I did venture around a few bays closer to the dam ....most were only half froze ...if that. Warmer further south by fish farm i suspect hope this helps. You could always call Twyla at the fish farm and ask

Pike were biting good yesterday. 12 inches of ice, tons of walleye and rainbow on camera but no biters. It was weird, they were in deep and even caught one in 47 feet of water

Good catch saskoutdoorsman!
I was by the edge of the big lake yesterday afternoon over 3 inch of ice. Wasn't cold, lots of lookers, only one walleye iced.

Ice in the Harbour is about 12", but nobody is venturing out on the main lake. I was at the mouth of Sand(dogleg) Coulee last week and the ice was only about 6". Fishing has been slow. Good luck and take care.

The main lake near the Gardiner dam has good ice of at least 7 inch. Fishing is slow the whole morning.

Was out a little while ago for pike one afternoon. Was pretty slow, a few flags with a 45 incher was the biggest. Not crazy action though that's for sure

I have fished it many times winter and summer. Can hit perch there sometimes in the winter, but lately it is mostly burbs.
