Pasqua/Echo 2020-2021
« on: Nov 13, 2020, 10:07 AM »
Just wondering if anyone knows if Pasqua and Echo iced over before all the snow showed up?

Buffalo pound was open when the storm hit. Centre of the lake is smooth now but the edges where it was frozen are very rough. Waves were lapping up on then with the high winds. Just saying this as it’s the same chain of lakes.

Anyone have a chance to punch some holes to see how thick the ice is?

Has anyone had a chance to get out on Echo?  Wondering where the safest spot is to get out on foot (park boat launch, fishery parking lot, B-Say-Tah)? I'm hoping to take out the family but want to be safe.  Thanks all.

I was out on Pasqua yesterday and there’s a 4-5” of solid ice.

Went out on Echo Sunday at B-Say-Ta boat launch.  Solid 6 inches of hard clear ice.  Caught 8 small walleye and several tullibees at 22 feet.  Pretty finicky bite but a great day with no wind.

Walked out at B-Say-Tah yesterday good 8” of solid ice. Make sure you wear cleats there’s no snow on the ice. Could skate from one end to the other.

Spent a few hours yesterday afternoon on Pasqua; parked at the boat launch parking lot and walked on quite a ways. Fished in 22' of water, 12" of nice dark ice with a couple inches of snow over top. Not as slippery as it was earlier this month however the sloped area walking from the parking lot onto the ice is a skating rink. Only landed 4 small walleye between 3:30 and 5:30 but had lots marking on the Marcum and missed a few bites. 2 other people/groups fishing on the east end of the lake. Good luck this season!

I walked out at B-Say-Tah yesterday and there was a bit of snow cover until the wind came up. There's a good solid 12" of ice. Ended up with a few Walleye and Perch but nothing big.

I saw that ridge at the Pasqua provincial launch...gonna have to find a different way on. I was at Echo on the weekend and there's a fair size heave at the B-Say-Tah launch too.

To drive on at Lutherland do you go through the church property? I've never accessed the lake over there.

Go past the church and take a road parallel to main road then turn east on to lake. Boat launch in summer. West side of point.

Dec 28/2020 - On at B-Say-Tah.  Ice about 13"-15" at 4 different locations. 

Drove on from the boat launch... locals had chopped out most of the ice heave at the boat launch.

Fished 25' to 30' of water over the 4 locations.  4 small Walleye and 1 jumbo Perch from ~12:30pm - 3:00pm.  Regular marking on flasher, but poor bite overall.
