the fishing was slow on Friday for saskbucks and myself as we ventured to a different area of the lake. we did manage 1 walleye, 1 whitefish 1 small pike, and a jumbo perch for our efforts. lots of whiteys on camera and some walleyes. tons of tiny perch filling the screen on most holes. great day and great weather and of course another fish fry. thanks saskbucks. heading back out today on a solo trip somewhere possibly last trip to deif depending on the outcome.

Still trucks on ice on Saturday. Ice is being eroded already. Two of us fished Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, and iced 6 whitefishes, 1 each of walleye and perch. Missed a bit more half way, and those tug like whitefish.

Hi! I'm wondering if someone could tell me the approximate date when most of the ice has melted on diefenbaker.

I'm from the University of Regina and writing my thesis on winter conditions in lakes around SK, so that's why I'm hoping to catch the approx. ice-off date, which would be when 2/3 of the lake has melted or the first day when its completely melted to go with a boat. I'm grateful for any reply and update as soon as the ice melts! Thanks!

I will keep you updated on the current year, I'm guessing it'll be mid-April

Ice is going fast, might be able to walk on if the edges aren't too rotten...
A truck went thru yesterday by Riverhurst 😳

Awesome, thanks Sega bandit!  If you're able to note when it melts in April that would be great :)
