This Fish’n Canada episode takes Angelo Viola to Lac la Biche in Northern Alberta, where he teams up with fishing guide Ray Kohlruss to target some Big Northern Pike. They quickly discover though that big Walleye are much more interested in their giant baits than the pike!
It has been a big month for Newfoundland and Labrador Wildlife officers. On June 2, an Alberta man pleaded guilty for hunting big game without a licence and possessing a firearm and ammunition without a valid licence. He will be sentenced on June 29. The Edmonton man was charged and convicted as the result of […]
On this episode Pete Bowman heads west to Alberta searching for big Northern Pike on Pinehurst Lake. The show theme however takes a turn when he and fishing partner Ray Kohlruss start catching big fat Walleye on giant Saltwater jigs.
This Hotspot is a tapering underwater point on Pinehurst Lake in Alberta. This spot is known for both Pike and some big Walleye. It’s a classic piece of structure that holds fish all year long. Try either casting and slowly working a jig, or trolling a Walleye style Crankbait and varying the depth of each pass until fish contact is made. Don’t be afraid to run a Crankbait designed to dive 10-12 feet down in 20+ feet of water, as these fish will sometimes suspend in the water column.
This Hotspot is a big weedy flat close to Eagle point on Winefred Lake in Alberta. The weeds in this area grow in clumps and that’s what you need to concentrate on in order to catch the big Northern Pike that reside here. Although single hooked baits like Swimbaits, Spinnerbaits and weedless spoons are easier to work here, our Cooper guests did very well with treble hooked spoons weaved among and through the weeds. Every now and then don’t be afraid to cast into the open water adjacent to the weed clumps, cruising Pike are always present.
Six People from the Cold Lake area have been charged with illegal possession and trafficking in walleye, lake trout and whitefish.
An undercover operation by Fish and Wildlife resulted in 41 charges being laid under the Alberta fisheries regulations.

Right out of the gate we would like to say we are extremely happy with our re-discovery of fishing in Alberta. In the past they were always top notch in the trout category with the Bow River being one of Canada’s most spectacular fisheries. However once we found out about their Walleye and Pike fishing, wow have our eyes been opened up.
This Hotspot is a fast breaking drop off of what’s referred to as Volkswagen Point on Calling Lake in Alberta. It’s easy to recognize because there’s literally an old broken down Volkswagen on the shore almost directly opposite of the waypoint. When we were there we used jigs and dead minnows… remember live minnows aren’t allowed here… and caught an incredible amount of quality Walleye. As a matter of fact, we believe it’s the most double headers we’ve ever caught on one spot!
This Alberta Hotspot is a flat near the narrows that separate the 2 large sections of Lesser Slave Lake. This is an area that needs lots of searching since the fish will not sit in one specific “spot” for very long. Typical of a flat, this area has groups of Walleye moving in and out at different times. Try trolling spinners tipped with worms or Walleye style crankbaits or dragging a Jig & Dropshot combo. Vary your speeds.
May’s HotSpot is a section on the Bow River outside of Calgary, Alberta. Our hotspot is a deep section just below a rocky shallow area. Make sure you fish from this shallow run all the way past the mouth of the Highwood River. This is a very large area so do not dwell on the exact waypoint. According to the Bow River Hatch Chart, use an Adams, Crystal Blue-winged Olive (size 18) during the first two weeks of May and an Adams, Quad March Brown (size 14) for the remainder of the month.
