Candle lake? Or elsewhere...
« on: Jan 24, 2020, 07:26 AM »
Hey guys,

Going to the in-laws cabin at candle have never ice fished it. Have summer fished by the island in the boat but nothing else.

Is there anywhere I park park and walk on and get to a decent depth? Looks like maybe the east side of the lake?  Or is it sled only, as I donít feel like driving on. 

I know itís a slow lake to fish but Iím there anyways and the weather looks great...

All else fails I can just try to find a few shack and head towards them.

Thanks in advance.

Or should I just go elsewhere all together and try; Emma, Christopher, or bittern lakes?

Hello Pollock,

I can't speak for Candle, but Emma was a pleasant surprise last summer. The walleye were amazing. I remember fishing it as a kid, and a couple of walleye was a big day. Last July, my four year old granddaughter caught six nice walleye in about 2 hours of fishing with her Pink Pony rod.  Her four and six year old cousins caught as well. I haven't made it back yet to try ice fishing, but it is definitely on the list.

Personally if at candle I would check out NHPP.  Lots of trout and other lakes with many easy access by foot.

Thanks guys.

I have fished narrow hills provincial park lots growing up... lower fishing and a few of the small lakes off the escar road and such...had good luck in summer.

Maybe I shall think about heading that route.

I have had a few decent days on Heritage. It's nice and close to Candle and has decent walleye. It shouldn't be too far to walk out.

Ended up spending 5 hours out at candle in the provincial park area.

Caught 2 pike and saw a few lil walleyes on the camera, one stuck but missed it.

Great day weather wise, so canít complain.

Thanks for any input on lakes and spots guys.

Cheers.
