Cold Lake is widely known as one of the best ice fishing lakes in the province, and for good reasons. It’s home to a friendly, welcoming ice fishing community that gladly shares its knowledge with visitors and locals alike. Plus, winter brings snowy owls to the area from farther north!

Cold Lake boasts a selection of fish species, including perch, burbot, walleye, and northern pike. However, the thriving population of lake trout is something that makes the lake truly special. Come winter, anglers from both Alberta and the neighboring Saskatchewan make the winter pilgrimage to get in on the lake trout ice fishing action.
