View Full Version : Gooseberry Lake info?

Anyone ever fished at Gooseberry Lake just north of Consort.
I will be going on a camping trip up there with some friends at the begining of June and was wandering if I should pack my fishing gear. Also for what species?

Nothing in the regs, but the BM guide says rainbows to 4 lbs. Never been myself...

I've never heard of anyone fishing in the lake itself (don't think it has fish in it) but there is a pond not far that used to produce some nice trout.

It's listed in BM as "Park Pond" so indeed they probably aren't one and the same.

Maybe I'll give the campground a call and see if they have any first hand info.

I think bushman is right...The trout are in the pond at the campground not the lake....The lake is way too Alkaline.

I, too, think the lake is alkaline.

You'd be better off taking your gopher hunting stuff !!:D

I do remember reading online somewere the lake was very alkaline.
But if there is a trout pond I may have to pick up an extra fishing rod for my 2-1/2 year old to try it out.
He was pretending he was fishing the other day after watching a fly fishing show on TV with me.

I'll check for more info on the pond.

Thanks for the responses.

The lake isn't fishable but there is a stocked pond within walking distance of the lake. It has been more than a few years since I was there but I did catch a couple small rainbows in the pond.

Dillberry Lake was another campground I wanted to check out.

the only problem with dillberry is that sask. put a liquor ban at their provincial parks so all the sask kids come to dillberry to party. I was there last long weekend and it wasn't for young families.
