Lac La Nonne across from Birch Cove there was 4 to 5 inches where I checked.

At the launch by the store on the east side of lake was told 6 inches. Quads and SXSs on the ice there. Never checked the thickness myself.

Default Spring Lake - Stony Plain

Sorry, yes it was Spring Lake west of Edmonton. I forgot that we have so many lakes in Alberta we have too reuse names. Lol!

Crawling Valley had 4-5 inches of good hard clear ice on Sunday. Fishing was slow though, 8 fish in 5.5hours. Campground gates are open and someone drove a quad onto the ice and was fishing the west side. 4 groups fished the outlet bay. Judging by the amount of holes everyone was drilling throughout the day I'm guessing the bite was slow for everyone.

No, I was told earlier in the thread to go to Grandview. Started at the boat launch there and basically went straight out. Saw one fish on the camera and that's about it. Was really quiet. When things get thick all over, I think I want to try by the big weed bed directly across the lake from Grandview.

Were you there on Sunday with the quad and clam flip tent? I was on the quad with the black shack. Slow day for me. Only one small pike. Moved 8 times fished 6 to 16.

That was me. We tried 3 points before we ran out of juice. (Little over cautious checking the ice) Had a small flurry of walleye and a couple of dinker pike.

No walleye seen. Lots of whites seen. No takers. Cant figure them out on pigeon. Sylvan and gull no problem. Pigeon, battle, and buck..... cant get them to commit. Sigh.....
